3D brain fart

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Ok So i'm starting out the season with learning to freestyle. First few flips and inverted hover went great. So after the heart stopped poping out of my chest I charged and went back to the field. Pulled to 3-4 mistakes high and dropped the tail....... "hmmmmmm why is the heli heading for the ground"????
After the heli was done doing the funkey chicken, I walked over to see the carnage. I'm thankfull for aluminum and CF parts but even those bend and break

Heli's are sure fun but don't do 3D that well When you don't flick the Switch from Normal to idle-up.
Everyone makes mistakes

Re: 3D brain fart

Ouch! I have no where near enough proficiency to 3D my helo. I'm happy when I can go home with my Rex in one piece, after completing only simple circuits. On the bright side of your crash, you're stretching your proficiency muscles and it's only when you fly outside of your comfort zone that you'll improve. The next time you go out to fly, you'll be that much better than you were today .

Murphy was an optimist; fly safe and have fun.

Everybody will do that one eventually, Now you got it out of the road, I'm betting you'll never forget Idle up again.
