Wamsy's 3D Tutorial Thread


I enjoy helping others when it comes to the hobby so I have been making some 3D tutorials on various maneuvers and topics. The goal for the videos is to make it as easy as possible to see the stick movements and some helpful commentary on the side.

Hopefully these will help some people wanting to add something to their bag of tricks. This thread will be a central place for all of the videos to be kept and for some general banter. The only thing that I ask is if you have any negative comments about the videos for some reason to address it via PM and not publically, as I know that many people to these many manuevers different ways.

Some videos have commentary while others just have slow motion, the goal is to eventually have all videos with both.

Below is the Variant for the airplane I use in all of my videos which I have modified to fly realistically.

The Simulator I use: http://www.horizonhobby.com/products...on-3-0-RTM3000

Keep in mind it is now in Beta 4.0.

Videos Not On First Page:

Turnarounds
Rolling Loops

thanks for taking the time to help! Just got Pheonix. How do you get planes and color schemes into the sim?

Download the schemes and variants to a place you can find them.

Then unzip them.

Go to My Documents-Subfolder Phoenix RC
In that folder/file there will be places to put them under the variants or schemes file.

Should get you in the right area.

A good way to practice the last half of the rolling loop is:

1. Get altitude, it is your friend.
2. Instead of doing the whole loop, try just doing the last half, so start straight and level and roll the nose down and around.

So basically your doing the last part only. It helped me. This is a really good way to practice on the sim.
