Sam2b,

Great video, especially at 54 seconds.

Instead, some precision hovering, followed by some gentle trips around the pattern and nose-in approaches and then a loop or roll or two, will hold people's attention pretty much until the timer goes off.
Interesting that you mention this. One of my good flying buddys (who had started another club in the city across the river) came by our field for a visit one afternoon. I hadn't flown with him in the last several years since I'd started flying helis. I thought that I would impress him with my horsefly on crack heli moves and got nothing. I started out with a strong power move and then threw it at the ground a few times waiting anxiously for a response. He was behind me in the pits and nothing was said. Then I broke into some big air loops, rolls and funnels. This is when I heard "Yeah I like that!" You see, my buddy is a big scale flyer, and to him, a helicopter flying like a plane or scale heli was much more impressive than 3D. Good thing I fly both styles in every flight.

The silent killer
I watched a guy with a logo 600 run it into the ground because the motor quit, and he couldn't here it. He couldn't figure out what happen until we told him. From where we were at, we could here the motor spin down.

This guy was really good, and there is no doubt that if he had heard the motor quit, he could have flipped it over and saved it. Instead it was an ugly silent killer.

Old Guys Rule!

I've never had that problem with my Logo 600, but could see it happening. Especially when I am flying in a box between a pair of nitro powered helis.

Before electrics came out, no one would have even complained about the noise and smoke. You can definitely tell this hobby has been around for a while with all the different opinions across the generations. And yet, with all the different opinions, we all still come together in support of this hobby.

Personally, I like both Nitro and electric, and could care less about the noise and smoke because I have been around it for the last 30+ years, but I can see where the noise and smoke could be an issue for those who never had to be around it all the time.

I do complain about smoke when it comes from my electrics though

Problem solved! Haha... Shame it makes the heli fly crap... But yes this is the main concern for me when flying with nitros, you really have to keep an eye on the feel of the heli for any loss in power.

Telememtry systems help out a great deal as you can have a vibrate and tone alert when the motor speed drops.

I know! I was really amazed at first as this sound is LOUD and echos for miles almost!

EDGE NOIZ blade decals, but these are no longer sold.

It was a holographic decal which wrapped around the blades and had a uniquely shaped trailing flap which vibrated.

Hmm, interesting attention-getter. It's kinda thing the same thing about people's click-clack shoes. It says "Look at me! Look at me! I'm here in your presence!" LOL Please don't take this as a personal attack.

Electric vs Nitro
I am the last person to have ever believed I would go electric anything.I used to fly my nitro's with guys that had electric only.I saw them messing with expensive chargers,dangerous batteries(puffed) and said I would never have any interest in that.
Well I have now been moving to the Dark side.I now have 2 electric 550s and still have 600 nitro's but I must say.
There is something to be said about being able to fly early in the mornings with an electric and or in the area of apartments or homes at my local outlaw fields.
I belong to a great club,that being said there is a 8am no nitro rule because of nearby houses
I know have all the high dollar Hyperion charging and elaborate power supply systems and must say
I now really am liking electric very much
I am now selling off one of my 2 600 Nitro's to fund buying a new Honda 1000 watt generator to be able to charge my batteries at the field and keep flying
I still like nitro but electric sure has some real advantages
Just my $.02 worth

There was an very early model helicopter that the nitro engine actually rotated with the main blades, and that was really horrible sounding (no muffler and pulsating noise results).
I'll look for a youtube link, I have seen it somewhere.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

Found it. Now this is a really annoying sound. Balance problems, you bet, and talk about noisy nitro.

Watch at YouTube

I noticed the Raptor G4 electric heli is very quiet and the tail gears are also helical! Impressive step up from Thunder Tiger.

OK I like my nitro sound but those two last videos where annoying. lol. But I couldn't help but watch it and laugh.

Love the smoke love the noise.

Happened to a friend of mine as his 700e motor caught on fire. It was an overcast day so we didn't see the smoke until it got below the tree line. I noticed that I can see his blades but couldn't tell anything by sound as there was about 7 other heli's up at the same time. He went negative pitch to get the blades going but it was not enough time.

Gyrofreak, that thing is cool and looks kinda dangerous starting.

I do prefer the quiet species of helicopters. I love hearing the blades slap the air around. Kinda like a Huey coming in a Hot LZ.

fly til its dry
