Heli Crash Calculator - V1.0

Posted 02-16-2010 at 07:18 PM by ted_wears_a_hat (The Trials & Tribulations of a Learner)

Hi helifreaks, I hope everyone is well.

A recent thread posted by Slyster regarding crash comparison costs got me curious. I have had it quoted to me a number of time "get the biggest you can afford to crash" yet the data Slyster posted appeared to indicate that size may not be entirely indicative of crash costs.

What was also obvious from the thread and the replies is that not every heli crashes the same and what always breaks on one heli may not ever break

Orientation Training

Posted 02-15-2010 at 06:25 AM by ted_wears_a_hat (The Trials & Tribulations of a Learner)

I haven't had much chance to fly of late so I have been trying to get some Phoenix practise in as often as possible, I generally only fly for a few minutes at a time but I have found that getting on the sim at least a couple of times a week keeps some continuity in my learning.

As a result I think I have finally broken the back of learning backwards circuits and 8s. My inverted hovering orientations are also getting better and I have just started to try inverted foward flight....

Blade 400 - 250 Flights!

Posted 01-14-2010 at 05:44 PM by ted_wears_a_hat (The Trials & Tribulations of a Learner)

Finally got a chance to take the Blade out today for three packs. This means she has now passed the 250 flight mark so I thought I would post up a brief long term review of my ownership experience.

I have had 250 largely trouble free flights and I can only really say positive things about my experience but I will outline my experiences for what it is worth.

So where do we start? Which is exactly the question I asked myself when I was bitten by the RC bug and specifically...
