Finally, the gain is perfect, the tail doesn't move (wag) at all.
At 70% gain. Now I can sort of concentrate learning to fly, per say.
I can hold it in my steady drive-way and breath, without wetting myself
at the same time. With the heli nicely tuned its a bit easier to predict.
Thanks for the tip CDallas2, I'll certainly take a close look at these lessons.
I much prefer paddles, don't you know

Re: Some people just do stupid things!!

Having a well tuned heli will help immensely in the flyability of the machine.
I tried flying once with blades out of track ( ah, how much would it matter, I thought), the vibration caused it to shake and tail kept kicking back and forth, almost to the point of
disaster. Once the blades were reset, it made a huge difference, stability increased, stress level decreased, it became a much more enjoyable experience.
No doubt a lot of beginners give up on the hobby, thinking that it is just too hard and
not worth the effort, when all they need is a bit of bench time making sure everything is set up and balanced properly. All the more reason why some good flying buddies make the hobby so much more enjoyable.

Re: Some people just do stupid things!!

It's also surprising how fast things go out of wack too. The heli I stripped gears on had a bent mainshaft. I never knew this I replaced the stripped gears only and tried it. What I did see was much more vibration but not enough to really impair it's flyability so I wrote it off as unbalanced blades.
