Built tested and... well - still need to find out why 2610V + D922mg + FBL head ($14.95 one) doesn't work well. Next is to try to return original blade holders (decrease mechanical gain) and try again...

Other one (flybarred) I built and tested flies really nicely! When I finish mine (FBL) - I already see it as my main 'throw-around bird' Maybe even to move to Mode 2 and give it a go too! I really need to teach my left hand to 'manage' collective!

When i started on fms before i had a plane i used mode 2 and couldnt do it and then found out how to change things around so my brain could work the sticks ,it turned out that i had changed to mode 1 but didnt even know there was a name for stick setup lol i here that most heli guys use mode 2 though.

Nothing sudden. Nothing wrong. Just curious! Curious if I can switch and how hard it would be. Almost as if I need another challenge

yeah, but it doesn't matter which mode you fly in, does it? is it a cheaper tx for mode 2 or somethin?

oh ok. Hey I just learnt how to do a 4 point tic toc. I swear I am deliberately avoiding this nose in hover. It is sooo boring, and crap. lol

Maybe but if it stops you flying into trees its gotta be good to learn

that is the main reason the heli hit the tree, it's because of that nose in hover. Other wise my day would been a good day.

I do have to say that nose in is such an important thing,,every time you fly away and turn back towards your self you need that skill set to be in full control of the heli,nose in hover is the same as this but at a stand still

And flips/loops/rolls even tic/tocs end up occasionally with heli in an awkward position (i.e. nose in ) and those are, usually, main reasons for people learning how to fly helis crash...

Also, try slow piros - very slow and controlled (6+ seconds for full circle - 1 pirouette). That will teach you how to hover in all orientations, fly backward, do funnels, etc...

I atleast plan on learning nose-in hovering properly. I'm at flight ~60 or so, and lately its been mostly tail-in so I think I need the practice. I can hover nose-in, I'm just not as good at it as I want to.
