Default RE: Training balls can they give control problems?

The training gear does several things. It spreads the footprint of the helicopter out so it is less likely to want to tip. It also
adds weight which lowers the center of gravity. This lower center of gravity also makes the heli less likely to tip. Like he
says, it also enduces some drag and slows the responsiveness down but the training gear should be used during hovering
and during basic manuvers. Once you become good at the basics of helicotper flight and are confortable, you might consider
taking the gear off.
