Invert switch. Now there is another good one for the problematic inventions list. I can imagine someone at some point suggested more switches, one for inverted nose in, nose out, left, right facing...

The 8 switch universal orientation radio! Sold with Foo shield.

I remember that some transmitters had a switch which kept the orientation the same when flying towards you. Then flip it back when you turned away.

Yep, that’s because this is the first time I’ve ever posted the video. It was intended for “personal use “ only.
No “invert switch “ used there ..... it was flown the conventional switchless method in use today....

Been there, done that and old enough to know better.....

there was another type of training undercarriage where you had training undercarriage mounted both above and below the helicopter, it was only a 450/500 size machine and the training sticks were small carbon poles with table tennis balls on ends..

I cant find a pic of it in my library..

Here another one funny.. I saw a long time ago,

Heli blades that creates human bodies and then won't take responsibility for them.

All The Best

It was a one of a kind device meant to be used by Al.... owner/builder.....and not meant to go into any type of production.....

Been there, done that and old enough to know better.....

That inverted training gear actually looks like it would be helpful.
