Oh, as silly as this may sound, use your best heli for this. A turd heli will only result in errors.

Going inverted is indescribable. It is like learning to hover for the first time. The kind that brings you to the field every chance you get. I'm past that now. Inverted circuits and funnels will be a natural but slow progression from here on.

The next big thrill for me has to be the piro flip. But none of that on year 3. I intend to perfect inverted circuits and funnels first. This is to get me really skilled inverted or upright. Makes bailouts possible.

And another little detail to nice Gino's story: when you learn your bailout technique - apply it no matter of orientation - nose or tail - if you don't have time to think. It will bring heli to position that will be better for you to handle. For instance if you learn this backflip thingy (as I did in the same way as Gino), I just remember to push elevator= away from me while giving negative - no matter if I am nose, side or tail in or even banked inverted. It will bring heli to right side up hopefully gaining altitude and give me heli in position I would be more prepared to deal with...

Very good point. For the backflip, the bailout is to continue the flip no matter what. If you have enough altitude, the worst thing that can happen is the heli drops a bit. But it will right itself up. Easier said than done. But knowing this helps you calm down should you black out in a middle of a flip.

Mulikow learned this the hard way. He started a backflip, chickened out before completing the flip, made panic cyclic inputs, and crashed.

But P4ddy is much better: he tried inverted - did a backflip and chickened out, tried it immediately again, and chickened out, and again and again and... he was doing tic/tocs easily!

It took me another 8 months to just get courage to give them a try! LOL

Ha Ha! Yea, i must be the only one who's learning is so different to everyone else. I mean Tic tocs are childs play (for me) compared to a flip or loop. I can even hold inverted for a few seconds & that should rapidly increase given my inverted capabilities on the sim. Basicly it's the idea of the heli being nose down & skids in that scares me?

I still remember the funfly with you & Brummeh saying DONT do another one as i was loosing altitude, but to me that was DO another

Flew two packs and did about 10 front flips...woohooo! the best thiing is that my heli is in one piece. It actually wasn't as hard as i thought it would be. Going to try and get a few more flights in and just practice doing flips from all sides. Thanks Gino for giving me that push I needed.

Good job. I can imagine the thrill. I still play my first flips over and over in my mind. Great day that was.

Looks like a great day for you. No flights for me. I'm taking the weekend off to catch some sim time.

Yes this head looked the part and I could see paying for two sets of blades but not three with one left behind. I also got the other shafts that I will need and the aluminum head and tail for my other HK. Total was $170 including shipping.
