Why does my RC helicopter spin?
One of the common things that can cause a heli to spin out of control, is to have the gyro sense reversed. There are two reverse controls for the tail. First is the Tx reverse which reverses what the stick tells teh tail to do.
Can helicopters do stunts?
They can backflip from a hovering position because they have rigid or semi-rigid main rotor systems. Once you establish positive G on the rotor blades while the maneuver is going on, they will function properly and therefore you’ll be able to handle backflips.
What pushes a helicopter forward?
The helicopter main rotor generates a vertical force in opposition to the helicopter’s weight and a horizontal propulsive force for forward flight. Also, the main and tail rotors generate the forces and moments to control the attitude and position of the helicopter in three-dimensional space.
Are gas powered RC helicopters better than nitro powered?
Gas-powered helicopters have the lowest power-to-weight ratio of nitro and electric. That’s why you can’t throw them around in the air and perform fancy stunts and extreme aerobatics. Nitro-powered RC helicopters have its loyal fan base too.
Why are gas powered helicopters not popular?
Gas-powered helicopters have the lowest power-to-weight ratio of nitro and electric. That’s why you can’t throw them around in the air and perform fancy stunts and extreme aerobatics.
What attracts RC pilots to Nitro Helis?
Those who graduate to large-scale gas or nitro helis will tell you that it’s a feeling like no other. But what is it that attracts RC pilots to whirlybirds powered by gas? The answer is a simple one, and that is realistic flight characteristics. The size, weight, noise, and readily available fuel all contribute to the lure. But why not nitro?
How long can a gas RC helicopter stay in the air?
Some gas choppers can stay in the air for 30+ minutes on a full tank of fuel. However, there are still a few disadvantages despite all the positives above. There’s no such thing as the perfect RC helicopter, and that includes these big beautiful birds. Below are a few of the areas where they don’t fare as well as their nitro counterparts:
