What happens in an auto with nothing driving the tail rotor on a 400?

it weathervanes just like any other undriven tail. best to carry a good bit of forward momentum and the tail will follow like a scaler in rate mode.

if it ain't broke, break it.

That brings a good question. Don't mean to hijack your thread, aviator flyer, but I have a 400 not SE. Will I be able to do autos with it? I haven't got it flying yet, but if something goes wrong (which usually does for me, HEhehe), I would like to know I can at least attempt to auto it in. Like I have on my bigger birds in the past.

Yes, tintmaster you can certainly auto in the 400, just make sure you are comfortable with all the upright orientations, so there is no surprises if the heli turns nose in on you due to wind direction.

I was concerned too because I had a 400 as well.. No biggie to auto, just dont jam the collective at the last minute to flare. Do it smoothly and there wont be any issue.

Crash-Prone and overcoming it!!!

Thanks for the info guys. I just got the V-Bar setup a little bit ago. Brian helped me through it. Then I let him test it as he is 1 heck of a pilot. I got to see him do a few little autos.
