3d Glossary and Tips

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hey everyone I was wondering if we could start and make sticky a thread in rotary that has a glossary of 3D manouvers and tips on them.

Some of us beginner 3D'ers dont know all the tricks

I know what and how to accomplish:

Funnels (nose in/down)
Flips Lateral & end over end
Rolls, loops etc.
Inverted hovering and FF

I know what these are cant do them yet:

Piro Flips

Don't know what these manouvers are or how to do them:


I am sure there are tonnes more that I don't even know about also
Lets get a training thread/glossary of 3D terms and tips on doing them. Lots of pilots should get great usage out of a thread like that.

good site

I was kinda hoping to get this thread to generate some more traffic to the rotary wing section by leaving setup tips etc for 3D.

I know there are sites that have all the info but it would be nice to help eachother out and keep the posts up on this forum.

G3 is the best, I can do almost anything in there cause there is no fear and the settings are oportune. Still can't nail the piro flip/Chaos though but thats a tough one.

Death Spirals and vertical rolls are really fun and challenging. My mini helis are a little twitchy so I am not trying too many of these manouvers with them yet.

Gotta love the challenge of 3D though really keeps your hand/eye coordination on the money

If noone is interested in continuing this thread, no worries I just thought it would be fun for us all.
