RE: Why am I crashing????

Did you use negative pitch at the top of the loop?
Was your engine going to idle in the top of the loop?

RE: HOVERING! I've lost all hope...CAN IT BE DONE, OR NOT?

Assuming by "serious" you mean a heli with 550mm blades or larger and that you want to fly outdoors.
I would suggest to get a sim and do serious training on hover figures in all orientations.

RE: Lightning strike?

The radio waves your radio is transmitting is not ionizing the air (assuming you are not using a megawatt booster for your Tx ;-) ), so the signal itself makes no inviting path for the lighting.

(2) just ignore the fear. Just do the well-trained figure as on the sim.

RE: New heli pilot looking for great bird

Even if money no object then I would go for a cheap 50 size.
Cheap makes you fly easier. 50 size is much less impressive than the 90's, money can repair your heli but not your body ;)

RE: Please help.....wife losing patients

any leak will cause engine tuning problems and hot runs.

RE: ducted fans

Some toy electrics have a protective ring around the rotor(s). Even seen one with a scroll text on that ring. Does that count?

RE: Flying in overcast/rainy weather

Make sure no water can get into any electronics (both in heli and in transmitter). You might be surprised how much water can get into the canopy with just flying around, not to mention backwards...

RE: Reflex XTR question

RE: clutch clearance

clutch should have 0.1mm all around.
Mainshaft should be absolutely straight. Well, maybe 0.01mm or so is the manufacturing tolerance.

RE: clutch

It's hard to judge whether it's OK from merely putting the clutch into the clutchbell. Alignment is VERY critical. Just measure it up and you should be fine. You can sand the liner lightly if you...

RE: clutch

"paper" has no clear thickness. Better get a good probe or measure the thickness of your paper (pile up sheets of it until you have a good measurable thickness). Spacing should be 0.1mm all around
