    Love these series but you need to fly it like normal some times. Having it always fly around like a bug on steroids gets old quick. Like to see it fly normally with great skill. Upside down helicopters zooming around – no. Great explanations and overview. Thanks for posting.

  3. Omg thanks for the tail rotor 'stop spinning' thing I can now fix my heli that I made. Thank you!

  4. You do not want to be inside that Helicopter 😂😂😂

  5. Deepak M says:

    Very nice explanation 🙂

  6. Ykeir says:

    now we can compete with an odonata

  7. Kevin M says:

    Helicopter looks like a Dragonfly

  8. Mr marshypro says:

    i think that guy uses drug ;-; 1:01

  9. 4:06 I'm sorry…. what!

  10. Rc helicopters dont produce lift 90 degrees to thier direction. ,gyroscopic precession, they simply make lift following the swash plate

  11. What about the Osprey? Does it have swatchplates in its turboprops too?
    Even trying to visualise how this would work on a helicopter with co-axial rotors or one with two rotors in tandem like the Chinook is mind-boggling.

  12. There is a kid who was either operating a professional rc model of a helo. Either way the blades hit him in his head and killed him. It sliced thru his scalp, thru his skull and almost made it halfway thru. It easily sliced thru his brain. I saw the autopsy pics. Brutal. You could tell he was young.

  13. This is a very helpful vedio

  14. Shan Hanfi says:

    Dude, I want to buy this new helicopter,
    Please send link to online purchasing site.

    Silly question does the swash plate have bearings
