Re: Is a dual rotor more difficult to control than a single?

I tried it on a SIM, but not real life. I found it a bit more difficult. Rudder control is not as responsive and as you get further away, the symmetrical look of a twin rotor makes it more difficult to perceive orientation. I'm sure setup is a bit more work too.
Two wrongs don't make a right, but two Wrights will make an airplane.

My Heli: Futaba 18MZ 2x(JR GSR260Z Sports FBL, Zenoah G26H, Futaba CGY750 Gyro, Futaba BLS-351 cyclic, BLS-251 tail, Futaba BLS-451 Throttle. Gryphon voltage regulator).

I like your video really nice flying, I think the double rotor helis are 2 times more difficult to fly than single rotor helis. This is due in large parts.....
