    thanks. i would find a place bigger than your back garden though lol..?

  • Peter W:

    Hey this is great. Best explanation I’ve seen. I’ll? have to give it a try as I’ve spent way too much time just hovering in my back garden. Thanks.

  • dannylightning:

    yeah, you should really at least have all hovering orientations down, circles in both directions, than figure 8’s down before you start? working on any tricks.

  • mdbsat:

    Hopefully circles are ALL I try? tomorrow… I really want to get the basics down before spending anymore time trying “tricks.” Aerial, if you’re reading remind me of this in the morning!

  • mdbsat:

    Well I realized that I can get Heli’s inverted and do flips but I cannot even fly in a controlled circle. Hope to catch you? and Bladerunner on the sim sometime.

  • dannylightning:

    your welcome,? I am glad it helps people out..

  • mdbsat:

    Thanks? for making this Danny. Very helpful.

  • trippledigitss:

    Hmm, well thats a bummer. I just bought a new one online yesterday, maybe I’ll get that upgrade right away and it may save me money in the long run. The only micro I have besides the ncpx is the 120SR and both of those take some hardcore knocks. But I just broke the canopy mount? on my nano last night so now I need to replace the whole freakin main frame. Anyway, thanks again for all the help. I’ll leave you alone for a while and go back to watching your vids. heheheh

  • dannylightning:

    yes i think those are a common problem, you can get upgraded bearings by boca but its like 40 bucks for the bearing kit, something like that, the 2 bearings in the tail case and the tail blade grip bearings were going bad for me, it would cause tail wag, i replaced them and they were going bad again in no time. parts are over priced and the thing seemed like a little money pit to me. all the micros i had besides? the MSR were junk if you ask me. i am done with the micro helicopters

  • trippledigitss:

    @dannylightning ok thanks for the info I’ll have to check the pitch. so the bearings are a common problem on? the 130?

  • dannylightning:

    just because the radio has pos 3 set at 50 on your pitch curve is correct with a 5 point curve but it does not mean your at? 0 pitch, you need to manually set up the linkage rods on the helicopter to get 0 pitch at mid stick, on the bigger helicopters its usually the 2 rods that attach to the blade grips you adjust to get 0, on the micro helicopters i guess you need to adjust the swash height till you get 0 pitch at mid stick, yes i sold my 130X, i got tired of replacing bearings constantly

  • trippledigitss:

    I need to buy one of those Align dig pitch gauges so I can double check my actual pitch vs the TX settings. I think POS 3 is set at 50 on all my helis but I’m not sure. But that would be 0 deg right? Or should be that is. Did you sell your 130x? I’m bidding on a one on eBay and watching a few, should have one soon. BTW: I did my first flips & rolls on my nano cpx last night and was getting them down good today! Man it feels good to get? my first stunts in! YEAH BABE! Thanks again for the help!

  • dannylightning:

    thanks for the comments, i am glad you like the? videos. yes i am always in IU, i do not use normal mode but if i did i would still have 0 pitch at mid stick.. IMO and in experienced pilots opinions will always say to have 0 pitch at mid stick.. you want that to fly 3D so 0 at mid stick is a must so you should have 0 pitch at mid stick at all times or you do not have a proper set up IMO,

  • trippledigitss:

    Nice smooth flying dude. Hey,? first off, its very cool of you to make & post these training videos, its a very helpful addition to the training sessions in the PS. Plus it seems more realistic for some reason. But you are also a really good instructor, nice calm voice and clear instructions, helps build my confidence. So a huge thanks for taking your time to do this!

    Question for you – when explaining the stall turns you mentioned pulling the pitch back to 0, so are you in idle up /stunt mode?

  • Emiel Vanden Berghe:

    Hi,
    I am look ing to buy phoenix…but i do not know if i can use? a E-sky ET6I Transmitter,do you know???
    Please respond

  • dannylightning:

    phoenix flight? sim..

  • DarkZenonia:

    nice simulator what name of it?

  • dannylightning:

    both sticks control the swash plate.. mainly the right stick though.. the left stick moves the? whole swash up and down to change the pitch and it also works the tail.. the right stick tilts the swash to move the helicopter around.. that is if your radio is mode 2,

  • marek0086:

    Great ending mate!

    BTW, which stick controls the swash plate???

  • dannylightning:

    if you go to the phoenix section on helifreak forums and than go to the custom creations section you can find all kinds of canopys to download, if your playing multi player you cant see other peoples custom canopys and? they cant see yours, only you can see it when your flying with it..

  • TheBeatSmith:

    Cool…..I wish I could change the canopys if only to keep it interesting…..thanks? again….

  • dannylightning:

    i have no idea what people use or how they did it, i found some canopy’s that you could download that people made and posted for others to use too. when i comes to? making them i have no clue..

  • TheBeatSmith:

    Really…..I didn’t know that was possible to make your own custom canopies…..What programs are you referring too if you don’t? mind my asking?…

  • dannylightning:

    you have that heli, you don’t have that canopy.. thats whats up… people can make canopy’s on phoenix, if they have the know? how and the right programs and the talent,

  • TheBeatSmith:

    Hey…wait a minute…..I have Phoenix….but I don’t have that? heli……what’s up??
