Woohoo Finally Switched to Phoenix & Sim Orientation Training #3

Posted 02-07-2009 at 08:02 PM by ted_wears_a_hat (The Trials & Tribulations of a Learner)

Simulator Used: Phoenix 2.00q
Duration: 20 mins
Aims: Practise side in (both sides) hovering and nose in hovering.
Actual Progress: Hovered a full pack on each side in orientation. Hovered 3 minutes of nose in with no need to recover by going back to tail in.

I also had a lot of fun blasting up and down the quayside pulling stall turns at one end and sweeping bank turns across the dock at the other. Good stuff!

I even tried a little inverted hovering...

Added an EXI tail holder to my Belt CP

Posted 02-07-2009 at 07:04 PM by nasukaren

My parts came in today. I replaced the stock tail with an EXI 450 (T-Rex 450 clone) tail:

While spinning it up, I found out that the main shaft was bent. So add that to my broken list....

Crash 2 (First real flight):
=======

1x Tail blade holder
1x Tail blade
1x Flybar
1x Feathering Bar
1x Main gear
2x Control linkage
1x Main shaft

Even though they weren't...

Belt CP: Broken so far...

Thought I'd use this blog feature as a way to keep a running count of the damage I've caused my little copter.


Crash 1 (Hopping):
=======
1x Feathering Bar
Skinned the white wrapping off the main rotor blades in the snow, but still usable.


Crash 2 (First real flight):
=======

1x Tail blade holder

1x Flybar

Well I finally purchase the HK-450 after alot of research and indesisiveness. Last I looked their stock of the HK was -221. So...it might be awhile before it's here. It is nasty in Cleveland, 12 inches of snow today. Good rekit weather. Anyway I look forward to the build process.
