Learn to hover! How to fly a helicopter

July 25, 2011

build your own: www.heli-chair.com this is my flight training device, the heli-chair. this video is a picture in picture setup, so you can watch the helicopter as i manipulate the controls. a great way to learn the basics of how a helicopter flys with a focus on learning to hover.

    Nice set up, like sitting in a real cockpit, only difference its not a full enclosed cockpit with instruments.

    This is one of the dumbest ideas I’ve ever seen. How is this teaching you anything about hovering a helicopter? A computer simulator is a MUCH more accurate and effective tool for teaching would-be pilots how to hover. This thing is the product of a fucking retard.

    learn to fly before recording it and say hey im the best in the world and i can teach you how to sit down

    Not gonna lie… I’m a halfway decent r/c heli pilot but this would definitely result in a crash for me to try it. I saw another video of yours and it makes 100% perfect sense why this device exists. It’s freaking genius. Practice from 3rd person perspective before you get into the real thing. Great idea.

    dissapointing video. You need to go to flight school, rather than play with toys to learn how to fly a helicopter.

    @amxen1 Then you buy sensors, actuators and plans to extend the chair so it follows the orientation of the model as it moves 😀 fasten your seatbelt first!
