Ran across this video on the basics of a real heli. I think I recall Bruce Jenner saying something along the lines of flying an RC heli was harder then the real deal. Would still like to try... it's the crash cost that's keepin me down!!!! (Plus the fact, more than likely, you will only get one really good crash out of the human bodyI will need a few more mulligans!!) Like to know how many RR'ers are actual heli pilots?

I did a discover flight for a hour in a Heli and he let me fly the whole time... It was pretty easy cause it reacts the same... Hovering was different since there wasn't a gyro

It was 120 bucks.. And it was awesome cause it snowed here and so I got to fly over Dallas with snow which is very rare... Once I have the money I play to get my fixed wing private license then do a helicopter add on, but that discover flight is Definantely worth it

Did you use your radio?
Or did you use theirs...
Was asked once if my radio is the one used on the real helicopters...

No Pitch...No Fun!

I am. Commercial/instrument rotary and fixed wing. I flew SH-60B Seahawks in the Navy and the TH-57 Sea Ranger (Bell 206 Jet Ranger), both as a student and later on as an instructor.

i am a full scale heli pilot. i have flown about 15-16 differents heis. i would say the rc helis are a little more challenging. you don't get the seat of the pants feeling with the rc helis. when i flew for the state, i occasionally would land at our rc field and take who ever was there flying up for a ride and if i had the duals in , give them some stick time.

torque... you ever get back in a ehli... fly it up here to Detroit, and i'll give it a shotjust curious... rudder pedals require constant adjustment since you're supplying gyro compensation?

How to fly a real heli !
I also fly full scale helis for a living. What Torque says is true, RC is more challenging.

Anti-torque pedals as there is no "rudder" term flying full-scale.

I find when hovering, anti-torque pedals are used a lot and pressed firmly. When flying forward, the less you use the pedals.

the torque pedals don't require you to dance on the pedals, just some pressure, on the required pedal. the department i flew for bought one of the first 600 notars. now this machine did require constant petal movement to adjust the canister which replaced the tail rotor blades. i think the newer 600N some sort of sas system on the anti torque system.

I heard that the MD NOTAR birds felt spongy on the pedals and were not the great improvement they were supposed to be.

jgunpilot,

the pedals didn't feel spongy, its just that with the notar, at least the earlier ones is, it was like a balancing act. it seems like when you would move the pedals to get everything centered up it would change, the canister would rotate so then you had to get busy with the pedals. this was at high cruse speed. but i remember one time while back at mcdonald douglas for our annual emergency training, the instructor said take your feet off the pedals. we were in a 520N, sitting on the runway. he said slowly pick it up into a low hover and take off, stay in the pattern and come around and land with your feet off the pedals. so i brought the machine up very slowly and did a slow take off, came around and set up for a slow shallow landing and then set it down. it did just fine. it did better then the rotor equipped helis i had flown.

now with a tail rotor system you will feel more resistence from the air pushing on the t/r blades, then with the notar system

The Army looked at NOTAR for a new attack helo design, but decided against it because it wasn't "precise enough". I can't remember the exact test they did, but NOTAR failed. The test involved something having a helo pop up from a hover behind tree cover, do a "snap" 90 degree pedal turn, stabilize, and fire off a rocket, Hellfire, etc, then return to its original heading and drop below the tree line. It had to be done in a certain amount of time and the NOTAR was too "wishy washy" with heading control to pass the test. Of course, newer NOTAR systems may be better, but they still haven't been adopted in U.S. military use.
