Helicopter training gear
Been out of the game for awhile, also rebuilding vintage raptor 30
So looking for some training gear until rust is gone, better to buy or make?
Thanks

Make your own and save a few pennies. Some 1/4” dowels and some wiffle balls and you’re set. Welcome back n good luck.

In my experience, 1/4” is too small. Better 3/8” - but depends on how rusty you are."The helicopter is much easier to design than the aeroplane, but is worthless when done. W. Wright"

I used 1/4" with great success way way back in the day. I didn't use them long, there is a point where you need to take them off because they are holding you back.

totally agree, you wont need them for long, they do help alot in your first few flights but you'll grow out of them quick, i used mine for no more than about 8 low level hovers and some high altitude as well,

just a note if you're just getting started, do not hover in a steady hover in one spot, your heli will fall into its own downwash and will drop strait down, thats a beginner's mistake
Take offs are optional,landings are mandatory
