Waiting on part 2

Friends don't encourage friends to fly helis! It can cause part shortages.

And I thought I knew it all! Very nice find. I wonder where those early RC models are today...Smithsonian maybe? I don't recall seeing them there but it has been a awhile since my last visit.

Wow
Did you see the video of the blade in part 1 at 16 minutes in.
Now I wonder how fast you can spin a GoPro.

Every solution breeds new problems

Great video! Did you notice the Kavan Jet Ranger RC model swashplate and rotorhead when he was describing collective and cyclic pitch?

Thanks for the links. Some parts I have seen but much is new to me.
Ever notice the lack of any head protection, sometimes a bowler hat at the most.

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

In part 2 at 7min, it looks like the pilot skipped the day they taught autorotation.
