Im a fairly new pilot but I've recently had several instances where people who didn't know any better came up behind me and started talking- when that happens you gotta learn real quick to not let it throw ya

lol, this one's taken a turn.

Can't escape it, there's ALWAYS going to be someone around even when I thought I might be alone at a field near to the high school up on a hill. At the other field I tried for the first time, suitable for a 550 nitro, a dude at the adjacent EMS fire station was tossing horseshoes donk, dink, curplonk I heard as I flew for the remaining battery.

During my limited time at the high school field some runners were lapping the field and a dog walker crossed right through the middle dog barking at the heli above and away. Where could I go but reel it in and wait for things to pass, turned out to be the best thing, they hardly noticed due to the very quiet heli and went on unperturbed, not curious. It is real nice flying from the top of a hill though. Today's hill top session was attended by a book reading woman who I thought might be upset, she could hardly hear the thing and kept on reading the whole time.

YOU ARE NOT ALONE

I have had conversations with a mate whilst flying but not just idle chit chat, it's mostly concerning the flight itself, how the heli is performing, tips to tidy up manoeuvres etc. It's easy with the quad when passers by start asking questions as I can flip it to auto and then talk to them.

I m ok
Im ok with it. Kindof got used to My coach V.Carter asking for all kinds of stick inputs. LOL I usually ignore them. but ya I can usually talk and fly. Took a while but you get used to it. Kindof like flying at a event center stage. It takes time to get used to it.

But when the walk up the should say (hey im behind you). Just helps to know they are there.

On flying the Standard 4 orientations in 8s, circles, e.g. yes.

During a Thing like a rolling circle sometimes when i tell someone on the stickmoves.

During buddyboxing yes.

On any figures, which involve verticals, even if it is a easy Loop or a turn, absolute no.

Funny, but i cant concentrate on the height during talking.

Might be that Comes from accident i had.

I was flying fast backwards and talking to my Buddy.

When he shouted "Att" the Crash was at "ention!".

I was diving 20 degrees and from the Feeling everything was ok. But at high Speed you have no margin and the ground was not where i expected it to be.....

It is like driving car.

On a "Autobahn" i can talk or even drive subconcious, on a bendy hilly street i have to concentrate more.

Same with flying.

funniest thing while flying in a few different places over the weekend, dogs behaved, people were respectful and only talked when talking to, and several persons walked nearby without a worry, seems the operator was in full faculty of their senses (lol). Meaning if you look good while flying you get a lot of positive feeling, even one kid at a park yelled back to his mom "helicopter helicopter". The little 300 looks so un-imposing but in reality it could probably hurt like a fugger if ya got hit and cut too, daym. It's a tiny heli acting like a 700 and I fly it that way (the sim "go to" heli is a 700e-rex)

I'm so fortunate to have so many parks near where I reside if I don't like the scene at one I can go to a corner or another field altogether. My recent series of flights have been captured on vid and I feel the need to show the world how blessed I am by posting a pic of all the places I have nearby. I had dogs, talkers, watchers, curious, kids, stern silent middle age women walking dogs, groups of people, all within range of my heli. It's ok to stop and hover while they pass. I can imagine an electric 500 is the largest heli worth bringing to a park because it'll run out of room in a lot of smaller places and begin to get close to bordering units if you ever need to recover from a trick.

happy flying out there, and all those who put me on their "IGNORE" list as well, paper/scissors/rock.

Now if you think a 300 is "NO BIG DEAL" well, you're forgiven. It fits in my large napsac completely. I have the throttle curve at 75% with a 130 tooth main off a 11t pinion on a 5700kva motor on 11/1v. In short, if I were to put the t-curve at 100% and the pinion at 13t the rotor rpm has every potential of spinning at +5000rpm, that's plank prop speeds, and this little bird doesn't provoke fear due to it's size. I fly it like a big heli. Did a few tic tocs yesterday and the heli surprised me how much it was knife edge to the ground without loosing altitude. Some hurricane practice ended when the heli drew in toward the center too sharply but I had only feathered the pitch about halfway to full from hover, it pulled in as I added more pitch. SOOOOOOOO much potential in such a small package and ohh so fast, size is irrelevant except seeing at long distances from yourself. My 450 becomes a dot in the sky as well, only taking visual cues from the rotor and last orientation in flight, very cool indeed.

mmmore to come

No problem if my conversation is about what I'm doing. Questions mostly asked by a spotter/spectator are about the helicopter or a particular move anyway. Now don't ask me about particle physics or something that requires abstract thinking about something other than flying an RC helicopter. I think any form of distraction, whether it is music or someone wanting to hold a conversation with you while you're flying, can be very bad and lead to crashing. There's a reason why many states now make distracted driving a traffic infraction. The fun fly events where the music is blasted from loud speakers is very distracting to me. Sometimes, I just think the music sucks and that is distracting/annoying.

I tried talking to/explaining to another pilot next to me as I was coming down in an Auto on Saturday.... Yea not the smartest idea lol. Bounced pretty darn hard on landing due to my lack of concentration.

a lot of stuff out there really is crud that's true. If you can pick your own it, MUSIC, can be amazing to fly to, like a coordinated dancer.

The other day I sim'ed to music and found it very inspiring, the music and the flight, I have Katy Perry's latest ep (some very nice tracks on the ep, "Spiritual" mainly). Half way through I pushed full throttle inverted nose out and went for it to the end (with a near miss lol) finally ending with the song near spot on, was cool.

You CAN talk and fly at the same time, depends how deep topic wise and with whoom. Ya-no, If someone expects me to be talkative and I have to do all the asking forget it NO TIME!!! I got to fly now, hehe.

Wonders some of you have done it unsuccessfully, can you sing to yourself and fly?

If talking to a spectator while flying, my capacity as a pilot descends to about the level of a 4X-the-legal-limit drunk. It comes back up to about a legal-limit-drunk when the conversation ends.

So I go from a mild hazard to a real menace and back again during the course of the conversation...

Time and experience takes care of all this. If you fly with a few friends and critique each other, talking while you fly is part of the learning process. I've explained the maneuvers as I fly them to many folks that are attempting to learn and the thing you quickly realize is that you learn as well because of the fact that you are breaking down the maneuver as you fly it. Once you do this a few times, casual conversation gets easier.
