Looking good!

I noticed that you fly thumbs!
Your flight control could benefit from adopting the "Pinch" style.
By supporting the gimble with you fore finger, will give you much more precise control of your helicopter. (It's not actually pinching. It is more of a support)

Also about 35% expo on the Ail, Elv, Rud and 75% dual rate on the rudder will smooth out the controls for better scale look.

Same heli.
Very nice camouflage, very nice flying, very nice video.


What Camera do you use for the video?
I need a good camera to replace the old one.

Thanks

IMO, I'd say fly however you feel more comfortable with, and to clarify pinch vs. thumbs... well, lets say that Bert Kammerer, amongst other top rated heli pilots that fly locally they all fly thumbs. I also haven't had a problem flying thumbs myself with lack of control.

Great job, i love these helis. This squadron is based just down the road from me at RNAS Culdrose, largest heli base in Europe. We also had the RAF seakings ( yellow ones) here aswell until they moved up country earlier this year. Father worked on them for until he retired from RAF. Is there any easy way to tilt the main rotor forward slightly, just doesnt quite look right with a horizontal rotor head. Congrats on a great model again. By the way, were can I get these kits on this side of the 'pond'.

Thanks for all the nice comments, but the scale detailing is still on going !
I would like to tilt the rotor forward more, but the tail boom is the limiting factor on this model, it is already at the top of the rear fuselage. Maybe on the bigger one, we can ??

You didn't think that statement would go unnoticed did you. When and how big?

See your PM's.
