I assume for cyclic into the wind helps as the retreating blade will be pitching up when it travels over the tail boom??

  2. I wanted to get your guys's experienced views on this, as i had a situation the other day which i thought would be a good discussion topic, and help with a relatively low timer like me.

  7. Hi All, Im after some advice as to custom moulded earplugs to be used under the helmet whilst flying. Ive tried the standard foam types but found them to be very uncomfortable. I know you can get custom moulded plugs for shooting etc and was wondering if any of you guys can reccomend their use and if so where did you purchase them from. Thanks in advance. 206 :up:
