OK, Larry.
In the back of my mind, I had a subtle unvoiced idea that I aught to check the tilt v. rotation direction - the little guys are coming from a former British colony.
But I never acted on it, so I think you caught me.

For the foreseeable future, I'll probably stick with FP, because their characteristics seem closer to full scale choppers. Try to build a fleet with a lot of 200-250 size, look for more 1/43 scale 4 ch models.

Concentrate on smooth, precision flying. Try to get my counter-clockwise coordinated circles somewhat close to my clockwise. (I guess that is another side effect of the torques and tail rotor thrust. Coming out of a clockwise turn, the little guy wants to continue forward, out of the counter-clockwise turn, it wants to drift backward.)

Andy - I was wondering if any full scale choppers tried to compensate for the tilt. Good info.
