Make a "Nightmare on elm street" series starring the Goblin 700 or some new Southpark episodes

First episode "I love to forget loctite"
Second "I do not need a Sim!"
"Who needs balancing!" might be a good theme
"Drunken flying - the news of the death spiral" - could be anothe topic
"Inverted? - Pitch to ditch !" might be a successful video too.
"Hurricane of the dead" might be too arrogant or irreverent regarding the latest occurences
"Black Fingers of horror - marriage of the gold connectors" starring the lipos and some white trash as not to be meant rassistic

You will find more and more episodes for beginners as you step through the world with open eyes.

I agree with RogerRabbit whole heartedly! I personally am a complete newbie and I have watched hundreds of videos of Curtis Youngblood, Bert Kammerer, Tareeq, and many others doing gravity defying 3D stunts within such close proximity of themselves. I have watched and studied countless training Vids, build Vids, reviews, unboxing, etc, etc. The one thing I have not seen a lot of, are videos emphasizing the SAFETY PRECAUTIONS that are so needed with rotary wings!

I also agree!

Seems like we just see more & more crazy dangerous flying by a lot of these You Tube Cowboys.

More emphasis on safety for beginners would be good.
Good for all of us actually

We could collect some more episode names for those movies, let me continue

"Broken blades of high spirits"
"The piro flop desaster - another one bites the dust"
"In my eyes only - or the adventure of the reused crash screw"
"The wall of death"
"Daredevils chicken dance - how to brake a finger in style"

re
Complete newbie here and safety videos would be great. Another movie title could be "Throttle and Pitch Curves for Dummies" I have read, watched videos until I get to point where I'm so frustrated that I want to sell out. I refuse to go the RTF route as I got a Raptor 30 v1 second hand and converting it too a v2....I'm learning so much about it but still have problems with throttle and pitch curves. I set it up per the manual but cant be sure I have it right until I get my calipers and pitch gauge.....ok now I'm on a rant so I'll stop....just good instructional safety and set up videos would be great.

what kind of topics will benefit the best.
Some ideas:
Carbon fiber repair (frame or canopy)
Electronics wiring tips
Fundamentals of soldering
Tuning tips (nitro or electric) maiden test flight
Rpm vs pitch...finding efficiency

Great Idea....
ren,

I really think that an up to date video/s would be a great help to for the new people that are joining the heli side of the hobby...

Some have no prior experience with RC at all.. some will have the understanding of the computer radios from flying planes.

I think that as suggested in a couple of posts by new people above cover what they feel would be of interest and a major help to them..

To others, yes, there are videos out there, but I would like to see a fresh approach, and maybe even include it in the Mentor Section...

I do have to say that some pretty "interesting" titles have come up!!!

ren, thank you for offering your time to put something like this together..

Stan

Hey new to forum, just got a blade 120 SR RTF, yesterday. In a couple days i feel im gona be ready to move onto something new lol..

As a new flyer i'd like to know what to practice after doing nose in hovers. Some type of free form practice? i've seen people suggest circle 8s but that seems like a big step from where i'm currently at with nose ins though. If i was flying anything remotely bigger/expensive i would probably be paralyzed in fear haha.

I have the hang free form flight on the sim and I can keep the bird up for extended periods of time before inevitably crashing, but trying to do a circle 8 or anything really controled like a simple hover just seems nearly impossible on the sim, but on the blade doing a tail in hover is really easy. FYI, On the sim i'm using a fixed pitch electric as well. I'm guessing probably just normal circles after hovers? It just seems like there's little structure after learning to hover nose-in and tail-in.

Sim recomendations.. there's a lot to choose from and i'm not really sure where to begin i borrowed a copy of 4.5 realfight through a 'friend' and i've been using that for couple of hours and it really seems to help. But just an overview of what's available because it seems like there are a lot of sims, the pros and cons of each would be nice. Also a buyers guide on some stand alone sim cords would be nice.

0. First heli buyers guide?
1. Sims buyers guide?
2. throttle control lesson?, aka how to crash and not panic. I do alot of crashing on this little bird, some of it pretty and others not so pretty.
3. Hover basics?
4. Nose ins?
5. ???
6. A guide for setting up your first non-RTF heli?

If its free I cheer you on!! ...if your charging to do the videos then I'd say SmackTalkRC does a pretty good job. Bobbys beginner vids I havent seen but Berts Learning 3D are great! Having said that I do feel at times that Smacktalk vids are a little "surfacey"...prob not a real word but I'll claim it lol!

what I mean by that is I wish with the FBL unit video for example they would have picked 2 and gone in depth with them. It seems they only scratch the surface and gave an overview.

So there would be my suggestion...pick some common FBL units and REALLY go over them! One would be the Skookum SK540..youtube has videos but it doesnt really go indepth..the wiki is helpful though. But if it covered every axis and gov settings of what not to do or what to do would be going the extra mile. Ikon, I havent researched but I know its a hit right now. Or Vbar... Nick Maxwell covers the CGY750 pretty well..but maybe you could dumb it way down for someone who has minimal experience. In fact, having written manuals (or SOP's--standards of operations) at work every one of them that I write is super dumbed down for someone who has barely touched a PC. **Never assume the audience has a clue of what your talking about!!** So I would approach it that way..treat it like someone knows nothing about the hobby with whatever topics you cover!!
