That is a good one, I will have to remember that one. I knew about the ailerons, also one about the rudder and KE. Sticks either both together or both apart. If you roll left (right stick moved to the left) then add right rudder (left stick moved to the right) so both together, the opposite for rolling right (sticks apart).

Where did you get the latex glove idea Josh?

I lived in Fort Collins for 2.5 years and I remember trying to fly on those "borderline" days. Running up the engine was always making you second guess. My hands and when I got into giant scale, my legs would always be freezing after warming up the engine.

Re: BoneDoc's 3D Clinic: Hovering 101 - Finding Your Rhythm

i wish this video was out when i started to fly 3D,i had to learn all this stuff out by my own and to make it worst i had a little 40 size plane that i had to move the stick way more than how BoneDoc does it,but after 6 months of practise i got it and now i can do hovers/torque rolls all day long

Re: BoneDoc's 3D Clinic: Hovering 101 - Finding Your Rhythm

Thanks guys. I'm glad that the thread also spurred interests in discussions on 3D techniques.

I got a couple of PMs asking for my setup, so here they are:

1) 3D Hobby Shop 103" Extra 330 SC
DA 85 on Slimline Pitts
Xoar 26x10 laminated
AR 9100 w/ DX 7
HS 7950 on aileron and rudder (one each)
HS 7955 on the elevator

2) 3D Hobby Shop 70" AJ Slick
Neu 1512 2D on P32 6.7 GB
APC 19x8 (compensating for the 6800 ASL that I flew it at)
CC Phoenix 80; UBEC
Rhino 20C 6S 4900
HS 5985 on all surfaces
Aurora 9 / Optima 7 guidance

3) 3dEPP.com Yak 55
Power combo (available from the webiste)



Also about the glove, they are surgical gloves (the kind surgeons wear when they are operating). They come in all sorts of sizes, and is perfectly formed to your hand. IMHO, it's the closest thing you can get to bare hand while providing some level of protection. The worst aspect about cold is the draft, and these completely cut out the draft. For ortho, we usually double glove because we're um.... rough on our gloves. Even then, I still have perfect dexterity in the OR. I think it does take some getting used to if you never use it before, but for me, it was a pretty natural transition. Not to mention, the lighter color makes a good contrast against the black Aurora 9 transmitter .

do you think a DA100 will be to much for the 3D Hobby Shop 103" Extra 330 SC

Cool, I have some around the house for handling certain chemicals, etc. Wore them a lot when I was in CO since some of the chemicals (like chloroform) used in DNA extraction were pretty nasty. I should see how they work for me so maybe I can get some more stick time.

Nah, it's a 35% and is designed around the DA 100. It'll come in between 25-27 lbs depending on whether you go stock mufflers or cans.

Ben,
combining the gloves with a pair of hand warmers in your pocket can go a long way .

Sorry, 6S 4900 (it was a Rhino 20C 6S 5000). Anything from 6S 4000-5000 will work great. The advantage of using 6S 5000 is that if you want to go to a 50cc conversion, all you have to do is double it up to make 12S 5000!

Thanks guys for the kind words. I'm open to feedback, and so if someone has a topic that they want to see discussed, just let me know .

In case you don't know also, I initially started this on RCG.
