I don't know the answers to any of those questions. I certainly agree with your statement of full size helicopter rotor blade flexability though. I've got some stills of an HH 60-J CG helicopter...

The better you are with the sim the easier it'll be to go live. The problem you may have is that if you go from the sim to a coaxial or even fixed pitch you could get bored with it real quick. I...

Do you fly at the same location all the time or does it act that way no matter where you are? If you fly at the same place you could be getting rx interference from another source. Also I know you...

Yep, that battery chamber is absolute junk. I have to put a shim in the middle of the batts to keep them tight. I found the problem early though, before I spooled up for the first time actually. The...

Is your tail rotor spinning from the beginning of spool up? It's pretty easy to check your tail motor. You can hold onto the heli by the boom right at the frame, spool it up to about 50% and then...
