I've been flying fixed pitch helis for all tolled about one solid year worth. Played on the simulator for about a month now and messed around with 3d moves. I have yet to conquer inverted flight orientation consistently.
Because there are four steering modes in 3d it's no different than flying 4 helis set up with each orientation. Your constantly switching from one to the next when the heli rotates, what a challenge on the brain. I'm wondering if over thinking the modes could be part of a delay in my catching on. This is all in the sim, money is no object lol.
My first official AIrhog "heli" was in 2006, that lasted a few months of winter. In 2010 I stumbled into an Esky coax and 2.4ghz. learned a lot and gained confidence outdoors, but the one I put a lot of cash into went bye bye like a childs balloon drifting off in a WIND. That was replaced with another coax and I went to town with mods to wind up with my mighty bl coax. I could make it 11.1 volts too, no need.
Now that I have my fbl converted 450se aligna back in the air I'm looking forward to some sporty flying with a bit of 3d practice thrown in for excitement, why not, (money IS an object however lol).
Are you a beginner, or just a big DREAMER? Ain't no dream baby. A friend owns a 13k 800 camship and does biz with it. I saw an 800 camera ship up at an hs in the region a month ago, freagn huge in compo to my whittle 450. If the only cam I intend to hang from a cam ship is a gopro I'm fine. In fact I put one on my fb 450 last year and got an aerial foto in the backyard, neat.
If I half to apolagize for getting in everyones face on the main forum it's coz I'm so excited to actually fly a cp heli like no one can. A few buds have tried and found it too hard to master, that's because you gotta THINK, man.
I had the greatest kik watching my 450 fbl se take on some wind an hour ago, and on 7.4 volts netting a lower head speed, way less intense and nerve racking than 11.1v, I strongly recommend trying it. It'll be great to get a 4s 5000mah 7.4v on it to fly up to 15min continuously, WOW. Ohh, had to put a 800mah 7.4 on top (right up front) of the 2300mah 7.4 to balance the heli. A standard 2200mah 11.1v battery weighs about 190 grams, the 7.4 was 120grams.
I'm just a measely BEGINNER, haha, keep flying, I know I've just begun, vids to come.

.I hear it takes "YEARS"?
