I was at the field today between 14:00 & 15:00 all on my own , good flying too. There is a dead sheep along the fence line towards the gate from the pits, I saw the farmer so reported this to her. I hope no one had plans for a BBQ Smile .

Helis on phoenix

Post by Stubbsy on Fri Sep 24, 2010 10:05 am

Playing about with Helis on Phoenix last night and decided to try the Honey bee king model out because basically I havent flown one and wanted to see what they are like in comparison.
I have trex clones which fly similar to the sim, however I was totally shocked when I flew the hbk - the hbk just stuck in the air with very little (if any) sideways movement compared to the trex's. Shocked
Anyone know is this the same in reality or is it a programme glitch? The difference in control between the two was absolutely astounding!

Tried it, twas more stable than the "Trex's"
Looked at some physical and dynamic settings in "Model Edit".there are differences.
The image on the screen is just a picture, it could have been, just as easily, a lawn mower.
It's the motion calculations that give the illusion of it being a real flying model.
For me, it depends on how much trouble the programmer went to to capture that particular model type.

Get on sonthing like the trex 600n or Vision 50 there about the most realistic on there for a "sport heli"

Also get idle up 1 sorted (if you havent already) and fly in that mode from the start getting used to that early on will be a god send later on.

Normal mode is simpley used to spool up by most of us

**and to answer the original post, i see it as a programing error the only tully stable helis are counter rotation ones but they aint "proper"

If you want any help setting it up just hola

Cheers fella's - just seemed astoundingly different to fly - I almost convinced myself I was an expert - didnt think it could be right lol!
Been knocking about with the Trex 450 and 500 sport - but will give the 600n and Vision 50 a crack tonight when I get home!
Thanks for the input! Wink

P.s Mark, Im already really good with idle up 1, I can take off and land the blades down in the grass everytime!

The honeybee king series are a little bit shocking in real life,but not in a good way. Smile
I've had a go at a king 2 and it was a wanderer (like the littlest hobo).
They are purely for your first hover kind of heli's,and the electronics are just enough to get it hovering.
The ones that are realistic on phoenix are like mark said,all the Align heli's and the Raptors and so on.
Try the Avante aurora and the JR vibe 90SG.Mmmm,nice.
