WORLD CHAMPION RC Helicopter pilot Demonstrates his Awesome Skills
Radio-controlled helicopters (also RC helicopters) are model aircraft which
are distinct from RC airplanes because of the differences in construction,
aerodynamics, and flight training. Several basic designs of RC helicopters
exist, of which some (such as those with collective

pitch, meaning blades which rotate on their longitudinal axis to vary or
reverse lift so the pitch can be altered and can therefore change the angle
of attack) are more maneuverable than others. The more maneuverable designs
are often harder to fly, but benefit from greater aerobatic capabilities.
Flight controls allow pilots to control the collective and throttle
(usually linked together), the cyclic controls (pitch and roll), and the
tail rotor (yaw). Controlling these in unison enables the helicopter to
perform most of the same maneuvres as full-sized
helicopters, such as hovering and backwards flight, and many that
full-sized helicopters cannot, such as inverted flight (where collective
pitch control provides negative blade pitch to hold heli up inverted, and
pitch/yaw controls must be reversed by pilot).
The various helicopter controls are effected by means of small servo
motors, commonly known as servos. A piezoelectric gyroscope is typically
used on the tail rotor (yaw) control to counter wind- and
torque-reaction-induced tail movement. This "gyro" does not itself apply a
mechanical force, but electronically adjusts the control signal to the tail
The engines typically used to be methanol-powered two-stroke motors, but
electric brushless motors combined with a high-performance lithium polymer
battery (or lipo) are now more common and provide improved efficiency,
performance and lifespan compared to brushed motors, while decreasing
prices bring them within reach of hobbyists. Gasoline and jet turbine
engines are also used.
A helicopter is a type of rotorcraft in which lift and thrust are supplied
by rotors. This allows the helicopter to take off and land vertically, to
hover, and to fly forwards, backwards, and laterally. These attributes
allow helicopters to be used in congested or isolated areas where
fixed-wing aircraft would usually not be able to take off or land. The
capability to hover efficiently for extended periods of time allows a
helicopter to accomplish tasks that fixed-wing aircraft and other forms of
vertical takeoff and landing aircraft cannot perform.
The word helicopter is adapted from the French language hélicoptère,
coined by Gustave de Ponton d'Amecourt in 1861, which originates from the
Greek helix/helik- (ἕλιξ) = "twisted, curved" and pteron
(πτερόν) = "wing". Nicknames used for helicopters include
chopper, helo or whirlybird.
Helicopters were developed and built during the first half-century of
flight, with the Focke-Wulf Fw 61 being the first operational helicopter in
1936. Some helicopters reached limited production, but it was not until
1942 that a helicopter designed by Igor Sikorsky reached full-scale
production, with 131 aircraft built. Though most earlier designs used
more than one main rotor, it is the single main rotor with anti-torque tail
rotor configuration that has become the most common helicopter
configuration. Tandem rotor helicopters are also in widespread use due to
their greater payload capacity. Quadrotor helicopters and other types of
multicopter have been developed for specialized applications.
The Making of a Real Backyard RC Track :: Part 2 of 2
It's taken a couple weeks and a few more yards of clay, but we finally
finished it. Still needs a couple more wheel-barrows of dirts in some
places, but for the most part it complete. Love the layout, runs super
smooth and flows very well, stay tuned for more videos!

Responses to Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Do you have a video of/about _______?
A: Check by visiting my main channel page; hit the channel-specific search
box and enter a relevant keyword (fewer the better)
Q: How much does [a product] cost, or where can I buy it?
A: Hit up Google.com -- search for the product by name, then click the
Shopping results link to quickly & easily see the current price range. RC
items can be purchased from RC hobby shops, online RC shops like Tower
Hobbies, A-Main Hobbies, etc., or from eBay sellers.
Q: Why did you buy a brushed version of an RC to review, when there's a
brushless version available?
A: Many more people can afford to buy the brushed version -- not every
buyer has an unlimited budget. Also, brushed RCs can be VERY enjoyable to
own & run, even though they don't go 300mph.
Q: Why don't you review more nitro vehicles?
A: There are ***very*** few places in my highly-populated region where I
can legally operate a nitro RC. Also, I don't personally like the noise &
grime much (I have owned/run a number of nitro RCs).
Q: Why don't you test more high-end maximum-expense race vehicles?
A: I'm no longer a racer, and most viewers are not racers. I really enjoy
multi-purpose vehicles that can be driven places other than a track. Plus,
*proper* testing of a race vehicle *requires* a long, arduous, expensive
process involving extensive tuning and direct apples-to-apples driving
comparison against the leading competitor or two under identical
Q: How do you get your money to buy RC stuff?
A: By working. Hard. Really hard.
Q: I personally don't like what this video was about. Why did you post it?
A: Wait, why did you watch the video, when the title clearly says what it's
Q: Is URC dead?
A: Silliest question of all time, hands down. Visit
