RC BIG SCALE Helicopter CH53 Heer RC
Im Alter von nur 59 Jahren verlor die Modell Szene ein Urgestein des
Hubschraubersports. Heinz Hoffmann * 15.09.1954 ist am 06.06.2014
Wir trauern um einen Freund und Fliegerkollegen der mit seiner Ruhe und
seinem Sachverstand vielen Jungpiloten ein Vorbild war und mit diesem Film
auch immer bleiben wird.
Dieses Video war das erste das ich gedreht habe und ist der Grund weshalb
der Modellsport, das Fliegen zu meinem Hobby wurde. Vielen Dank lieber
Heinz. Wir vermissen Dich sehr !
Ruhe in Frieden.
Unsere Gedanken sind bei seiner Familie.
WORLD CHAMPION RC Helicopter pilot Demonstrates his Awesome Skills
Great demo by world champion rc helicopter pilot 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 control) 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 (or throttle, on
fixed pitch helicopters), the cyclic controls (pitch and roll), and the
tail rotor (yaw). Controlling these in unison enables the helicopter to
perform the same maneuvers 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
The various helicopter controls are effected by means of small servo
motors, commonly known as servos. A piezoelectric gyroscope sensor is
typically used on the tail rotor (yaw) control to counter wind- and
torque-reaction-induced tail movement. Most newer helicopters have
gyro-stabilization on the other 2 axes of rotation (pitch and roll) as
well. Such 3-axis gyro is typically called a flybarless controller,
so-called because it eliminates the need for a flybar.
The engines typically used to be methanol-powered two-stroke motors, but
electric brushless motors combined with a high-performance lithium polymer
battery (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.
Just like full sized helicopters, model helicopter rotors turn at high
speeds and can cause severe injuries. Several deaths have occurred as
recently as 2013.
Types of R/C helicopters
Common power sources of R/C helicopters are glow fuel (also called nitro
fuel, nitromethane-methanol), electric batteries, gasoline (petrol) and
turbine engines. For the first 40 years, glow fuel helicopters were the
most common type produced. However, in the last 10 years, electric powered
helicopters have matured to a point where power and flight times have
equaled glow fuel helicopters.
There have been two main types of systems to control the main rotors,
mechanical mixing and cyclic/collective pitch mixing (CCPM). Most earlier
helicopters used mechanical mixing. Today, nearly all R/C helicopter use
Practical electric helicopters are a recent development but have rapidly
developed and become more common, overtaking glow fuel helicopters in
common use. Turbine helicopters are also increasing in popularity, although
the high cost puts them out of reach of most people.
Two small electric helicopters emerged in the mid-1990s. These were the
Kalt Whisper and the Kyosho EP Concept, flying on 7–8 × 1.2 Ah NiCad
batteries with brushed motors. However, the 540-sized brushed-motors were
on the limit of current draw, often 20–25 amps on the more powerful
motors, hence brush and commutator problems were common.
Recent advancements in battery technology are making electric flying more
feasible in terms of flying time. Lithium polymer (LiPo) batteries are able
to provide the high current required for high performance aerobatics while
still remaining very light. Typical flight times are 4–12 minutes
depending on the flying style and battery capacity.
In the past electric helicopters were used mainly indoors due to the small
size and lack of fumes. Larger electric helicopters suitable for outdoor
flight and advanced aerobatics have become a reality over the last few
years and have become very popular. Their quietness has made them very
popular for flying sites close to residential areas and in places such as
Germany where there are strict noise restrictions. Nitro helicopters have
also been converted to electric power by commercial and homemade kits.
The smallest remote-controlled production model helicopter made (Guinness
World Records 2006) is the Picooz Extreme MX-1 sold at many toy stores
(although this is infrared controlled, not radio), electronics stores and
internet stores, costing about $30 (£28). The next smallest is the
standard Picooz helicopter.
Several models are in contention for the title of the smallest
non-production remote-controlled helicopter, including the Pixelito family
of micro helicopters, the Proxflyer family, and the Micro flying robot.
Glow fuel (nitro fuel)
Glow fuel, or nitro fuel helicopters (not to be confused with gas, or
gasoline powered helicopters) have been made in several sizes over the
years. These are referred to as the "class" of the helicopter. They include
1/2A class, 15 class, 30 class, 50 class, 60 class and 90 class.

SUPER FAST Piasecki X 49A Helicopter for US Military
Helicopter The Piasecki X-49 is a four-bladed, twin-engined, experimental
compound helicopter under development by Piasecki Aircraft. The X-49A is
based on the airframe of a Sikorsky YSH-60F Seahawk, but utilizes
Piasecki's proprietary vectored thrust ducted propeller (VTDP) design and
includes the addition of lifting wings. The concept of the experimental
program is to apply the VTDP technology to a production military helicopter
to determine any benefit gained through increases in performance or useful
"SpeedHawk" is a concept aircraft based on applying X-49A compounding
concepts to a production UH-60 Black Hawk offering better performance,
range, and increases in useful load. The "SpeedHawk" aircraft includes an
SPU (third engine), high forward-swept wing concept, a 45 inch cabin
extending fuselage "plug", and several other drag reducing and
performance-oriented improvements, including a rotorhead fairing, landing
gear streamlining, and a fly-by-wire flight control system.
The U.S. Navy-sponsored project worth US$26.1 million consists of a
Sikorsky YSH-60F helicopter modified by Piasecki as a testbed to validate
the "Vectored Thrust Ducted Propeller" (VTDP) system. One YSH-60F was
converted to test the feasibility of VTDP under an advanced technology
demonstration program. The YSH-60F is powered by two General Electric
The demonstration contract was awarded on by the Naval Air Systems Command
to Piasecki Aircraft. Piasecki installed a lifting wing with flaperons and
a vectored-thrust ducted propeller (VTDP) to a U.S. Navy Sikorsky
The compound helicopter technology added to the YSH-60F was first
demonstrated in trials of the Piasecki 16H-1 and 16H-1A in the early 1960s,
when the helicopters were flown at speeds up to 225 mph (360 km/h). The
success of the Pathfinder inspired others to experiment with compounding,
resulting in programs such as the AH-56 Cheyenne.
In May 2003, the YSH-60F/VTDP demonstrator was redesignated the X-49A'.
During 2004, the X-49A VTDP program was transitioned from the US Navy to
the US Army.
Piasecki planned to use the vectored-thrust ducted propeller design of the
X-49 for their entry in the Future Vertical Lift program, but were not
chosen to take part in the Joint Multi-Role Technology Demonstrator
The X-49A flight demonstrator is being developed with funding from the US
Army's Aviation Applied Technology Directorate to demonstrate the ability
to increase the speed of existing helicopters to 200 kt (360 km/h) or
more. The flight demonstrator has been updated with a lifting wing taken
from an Aerostar FJ-100 business jet. A ring tail has been added and the
helicopter drive train modified to accommodate VTDP. Piasecki conducted
integrated tests of the modified drive train at the Navy's helicopter
transmission test facility. The wings are intended to produce lift to
offload the rotor so the rotor can be slowed down and produce less drag,
allowing for higher speed.
The cockpit controls are modified with the addition of a manual prop pitch
override on the collective for the ring tail. This is the only visible
change to the aircraft's existing mechanical controls in the cockpit. The
other controls needed to operate the compound helicopter's systems are
integrated into the aircraft's existing mechanical controls to reduce pilot
workload. The weight added to the X-49A demonstrator aircraft is estimated
at about 1,600 lb (725 kg) due to the requirement to not
modify the existing mechanical control system.
The X-49A made its first flight on June 29, 2007 for 15 minutes at
Boeing's New Castle County (KILG) flight test center. This flight
included hovering, pedal turns, and slow forwards and sideways flight using
the VTDP for anti-torque, directional and trim control. The X-49A has
completed its initial testing phase, and is continuing with further testing
of the technology. Since then, it has flown over 80 flight
events with more than 80 total hours logged.
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 forward, backward, 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 Ponton d'Amécourt in 1861, which originates from the
Greek helix/helik- (ἕλιξ) "twisted, curved" and pteron
(πτερόν) "wing". English-language nicknames for helicopter
include "chopper", "helo", "heli" and "whirlybird".
People often ask, "What happens when that little engine quits?" At 500 feet
I shut the engine off. See what happens.

A compressed compilation of the 2+ hours (off the ground) learning to hover
and tweaking the machine.
Realizing the dream was a huge sense of achievement for me, and I can
understand how our Pioneers were so focused on their goals.

This helicopter is currently for sale:
Testing out the GoPro in the Mosquito XET helicopter, I had only flown this
helicopter a few hours at this point so I was taking it easy and getting my
feel of everything. The EFIS I have installed is the MGL Enigma, which
displays more information than I need. It also has a built in GPS. Pretty
decent little package, I'm happy with it. Here's the link to it's website
