Default HELI PATTERN FLYING * F3C * PRECISION AEROBATICS

There's tons of threads about flying helis in 3D. How about having one for FAI-F3C Precision Aerobatics?

If you're into this, let's discuss it. Tips on training, sources of information, books/manuals, who to ask for information, etc. etc.

Here's a link to the FAI download section to obtain the F3C Section 4.

Hi,
As a newcommer to heli's after 18 years of planes, I too prefer the look of smooth aerobatics.
This site gives some info including the 3D stuff.

I will be interested in seeing what you uncover.

Cheers,

Hi Bigfeet,

I was doing fixed wing also, but for half the time you'd done it. I wonder if you're familiar with Scott Stoops' work "Master Radio Control Flight"? I bought his book a few years back and am looking for material which is written in a similar way - as it applies to helicopter precision aerobatics. That piece of work was just so good.

If you're not familiar, then please visit the link below:

If you find anything like this, please advise.

Yes I am familiar with the littlerotors website. Thanks for pointing that out - I overlooked his descriptions for the basics. Its quite good. He even notes the pitch requirements for some maneuvers.

Cheers
