started with a cx1 and 3 months later bought a hawk pro no training gear or sim required but that was in 2006 it took a couple of years before I would do aerobatic flight.

I guess in Russia that's the norm they do crash allot. Nobody over there seems to know how to make a left turn
I can see why dash cams are the norm

spending time, paying attention

No doubt, but at what cost. Are others willing to pay as much as you did? Hats off to the early guys, were it not for you, all of this would not be possible.

you look like a good pilot and i suspect by listening to your helicopter that it is not setup properly it should be more stable then it is.

sounds like you are using linear th curves

and you should use 15%+ expo on aileron and elevator if your using a spektrum tx

try these th curves
0 30 65 65 65

what pitch curves are you using ?

looks like you are using linear pitch curves to your heli should not have slammed to the ground when you lowered your throttle if it was setup right

we are here to help brother

your last crash looked like your tail was not holding

i can help you .
Who is that advice for?
That's not me flying, just a video i found.
Also agree that training gear on a 550 is a bad idea..

Its all earth!

You actually helped put dinner on the table and support many American families that worked at/for GMP during the years of operation.

Thank you for that banshee rider.

We had so much fun with Cricket's it was a FULL day of Hilarity
Just a Solid Earnest Sincere : THANK you and Your Family for what you provided.

We thought we where Super Hero's ! Only bird that a pair of small crescent wrenches where necessary in the flight box !

Every time we flew em, we ended up rolling around in the grass laughing at the Fun !

BEst was when mine Got Way too High !!! " About 3 Telephone Poles High, - Running 30% on a O.S. 25 FSR on a Lean Run -" EXTRA RPM " not prepared for - Some what under control with No -Gyro on a Older Futaba FN.

Just about the panic time set in --- on how to get down - When it was WAY UP THEIR -----

The Motor Locked Up : It was a GLORIOUS AUTO SPLASH -

Still brings laughter !! Special Memory ! We had cramp's for day's.

Thanx for The Memory : Blessing's !

Isn't it amazing how far we've come in the last 35 years guys. I started with a Cricket as shown in this photo and the machine next to it is my latest fun ship! We didn't have flight simulators but we hung in there.

Perseverance paid off didn't it?
