Re: Heli hobby is dead

Dangerous he said so is driving a car/motorcycle/crossing the street flying an RC airplane

My opinion is it as safe as flying a plane if you know how to maintain control of your helicopter

Re: Heli hobby is dead

I always said when the drone craze hit.....you should be able to turn off every flight assisting feature on the drone and fly it manually in a routine.....like we do with helis. If you cant actually "fly" it in full manual control...you shouldn't be flying it

I LOVED the challenge of helicopters when I learned. Everything from opening that box looking at all the parts....assembly, locktite, linkages, ball joints, tuning the engine ---first glow then GAS..(notice I didn't say motor lol) throttle curves, pitch curves, setting the gyro up...list goes on.
That feeling when throttling up.....watching it get light on the skids...thinking.......MAN...this is AWEOME!!!!!!
Lift off....hover....finally do some figure 8's and a nose in hover......yep THIS is flying! Not pushing a button and watching it lift off it self and stay in one place.
Not dissing drones....they have their place....but FLY them???? Nope you're not! LOL

Heli's are not dead to me
OK....I'm done now

Leisure-Tech Products www.leisuretech.ca May not have all the parts for the Predators, but they still have a good bunch. So if you need anything for it just send an email to me at [email protected]. We still carry the FunKey scale fuselages one the Rotor-Tech blades.

Good to hear you are out beating the air into submission again Ken. five of us heli addicts were out at the Ridge facility on those two days also. I was flying two vintage helis I have restored,a TSK Mystar 46 (last flights before restoration was about 25 years ago) and a Century Falcon 46 who last flew about 16 years ago.
