Looking forward to more vids!

Btw got this double piro cyclic movements down for the most part (They oddly seem easier than singles after constantly practicing). Still need to practice syncing better with faster piro rates and collective management for holding the altitude. Thanks again!!

A lot of people have asked for this. I apologize I haven't made a complete video yet, but here is a short video I made showing the basics of how to do each half. You need to be comfortable with half flips before doing these:

Just found this thread. The intro video and the Funnel video are great! Being pretty new to helis I am hoping you haven't forgotten about the beginner videos you have planned. Your relaxed step by step presentation is perfect!

Regards,
Gord

I am have been trying forward circuits and funnels on Phoenix and cannot seem to get the heli to stay in the funnel. I seem to get close if I switch to using a Rate Gyro versus Heading Hold gyro. Is there a recommendation on the type of gyro to use with Phoenix and how is your gyros set for the videos you are making?

Thanks,

I'm not going to waste a bunch of my valuable time with this. But I can't stand by and let Raza tell everyone that he never wasted our (HF Support) time, that he never saw an example of him being as Will described, that he's never received any thanks or appreciation for his contributions.

Really. What about Will labeling the Flight School forum with YOUR NAME. That's not thanks or appreciation? Who else has or had a forum with their name on it.....Finless Bob, that's it. And you've contributed far less than Finless has. No explanation needed there. But that wasn't good enough for YOU. Shortly after you were shown this "recognition" by Will, you started being a jerk with your posts in various threads. And yes, those posts generated complaints by the membership. The result of that was to remove your name from the Flight School forum. You not only have to earn something to get it, but you need to earn the privilege to keep it.

I have one video request from ya. Can you do a couple of videos on Hurricanes? I'm able to do them inverted backwards clockwise, but not a real consistant Hurricane low to the ground. I'm fumbling around trying to reverse direction now. Any tips from your vid's are great.
But the complaints didn't stop there. Your name popped up repeatedly in posts reported by the membership complaining about your attitude, your treatment of members, personal attacks, etc. Many of these complaints were mostly ignored, as we Support members gave you more consideration (leniency) due to your contributions. But what should we do when the complaints keep coming in? You don't get to be a jerk to people forever just because you've made contributions to the "community" with your instructional videos. And then what about all the posts YOU reported? There were numerous complaints made by you where you had engaged in arguments with other members, then reported their behavior to what, cover yourself by saying you reported them first? You were just as wrong as they were, you even admitted to this in your youtube and clone account rant.

My guess is this is where Will stepped in. You admitted to talking to Will personally about these problems. How many members get to or have to do that? I'm aware of PMs between you and Will, where you were warned about your behavior, to stop posting in a certain manner, etc. And your response to that? Well, you admitted to that as well in your youtube rant.

Then there's your "Raza2" clone account where you admitted that Will has had to put up with your crap. You contradict yourself with your very own words in your very own claims and rants. And what about getting out of RC for good, really? I supposed that's all Will's fault too. If you're contemplating getting out of RC for good, I have to believe that's your own personal issue and nothing to do with Will or HF. If you truly enjoy what you're doing and proud of what you've accomplished, it makes no sense that you'd just up and call it quits.

Continue to do what you do best, just do it somewhere else. You're the one who decided to leave, you're the one who told Will to f-off, you're the one who created all these problems that resulted in this whole mess. Will is one of the most generous and gracious people I know, it's why he gives second and third chances to members who can admit to their bad behavior and apologize for the problems they've caused. But apparently you aren't able to see the err of your ways, or at least won't admit to it.

Geez, looks like you've just wasted more of my time. I need to get on with my daily real life routine now.

Let me start with an apology to those that like the videos. I didn't take them down out of spite for being banned. I was not banned at all, I quit. If there really is a ban (I assume there is) I don't even know, because I've never bothered trying to log back in. Anyways...

Will has always held some sort of grudge against me from day one. I've always received a lot of unwarranted attitude from him. Finless can attest to this as I've asked him many times, if will was upset at me for something I was unaware of. I never got any explanation to this. I always ignored this and went about my ways.

Now Will claims that I am a moderators waste of time, I always cause trouble in threads, yadda, yadda, yadda. Let me just set the record straight. I have NEVER interrupted a thread with any intention of disruption for the sole purpose of just being an ass EVER. I challenge Will or anyone else to prove me wrong. My posts are all there and I welcome anyone to go look. It has never happened, and I've never wasted a moderators time with my "antics".

What I have done in the past is gotten pissed off at a few key troublemaker members and have given them a hard time. Sometimes, and yes regrettably, at the expense of the conversation, but my sole intention was of that to defend the site, or the person(s) being attacked, and to make the perpetrators known I did not like them giving good members a hard time.

So what Will has always done is associate myself with these people. People that CONSTANTLY get themselves banned (they are still there btw) with no legitimate reason to ever be let back into the site. Hell I've even discussed the problem personally with Will. It was always, "we'll take care of it", "we'll be doing some housecleaning", etc... Then without fail they are back within a month doing the same ol routine. One member has been banned by my count at least 5 times. Yeah Will, good job.

So anyways it got to the point that I could not take anymore of Will's abusive attitude toward me, and yes told him to f-off. I don't know what it was about me he didn't like. Maybe it's because I don't live with farm animals and have a southern drawl... I don't know. But he never wanted to see my real intentions on the site, and just saw everything I did as being in his hair. I've never seen an example of what he's talking about, I've always just received attitude.

So for striving to make his site a better place, and to have one of the best tutorial threads on the net, and help get literally hundreds of thousands of impressions for advertisement funds, I've never once received an ounce of any kind of thanks or appreciation, ever, period. I got more attitude for no good reason which was the straw that broke the camels back, so I left. That's all there is to it. It was apparent that even though it's been years since I've said anything to the really bad members there, Will still held his grudge and continues to profess that I did nothing but waste everyone's time.

So basically it ended with "whatever Will, f-off and bye-bye"
