thats Beyond Insane !
My grandfather has gotten into that. He mostly crashes. Neat to see one actually fly and in good hands.
Is it fake? I cant tell?
Thats cool, I bought one of those mini r/c's ones a while back, and it broke in a week lol! Ya my dad got right on ebay and started looking at the spendy ones! I had to talk him out of it, but he said hes going nuts just parlaying around the house lol.
My GI Joes wanna get ticket for that ride. Looks like fun, even without an explosive crash.
HOLY CRAP! That guy is good, flying an RC helicopter isn't easy. It looks like it has to be fake, but I don't think it is.
Also doubt it's fake. Not only have I seen other crazy vids of RC helicopters, but the physics makes sense, given how material strength, friction, and mass scale. Strength and friction are proportional to the square of the size, while mass is proportional to the cube, so a scale model can do things that would shred the full-size version. I don't know how lift scales, off the top of my head, but it's probably rotor area. So even that's going to be proportionately higher than the mass for a scale model.
wow, that's insane!! how does he not crash it with those crazy moves?!
Nope its not fake.
My brother and I are into RC heli. I have to purchase one but he has one and flies like that without any hassles. It is simple to do, you just have to remember which way the blades are pointed.
Soundwave, when it's upside down, is the main rotor spinning the other way, or can you just flip the individual blades?
It is a collective pitch so the blades just flip from moving the air one way to moving the air the opposite way. The best example I can give is: it is like sticking your hand out the window when your ridingin a car. Palm slightly toward the wind then the wind will pull your hand up and the palm away from the wind it will push it down. The motor would not be able to stop and get up to speed in reverse in time before the heli hits the ground.
It is a pretty cool hobby but mistakes can be expensive. I will be buying my new heli in a few weeks.
