I make things on the web, mobile and in the actual world.
I've done lots of bits and bobs over the years, and right now I'm mostly working on this.
I enjoy speaking about things I like, most recently this. You can email me if you'd like, and I'm on twitter.
*Covets* that is brilliant, how much?
It's alright £30 bargain!
By putting the counterbalance on the nose he got it to do some great stuff. It's so lightweight though that you cant really use it outside coz of the wind.
Oooh, I've got one of them. I need to fiddle with the counterbalances a bit more though.
Does yours already have counterbalances Sean, or did you add one?
It came with some little aluminium pads to stick on the front - I've not played properly with it yet, so they're still unattached, but I had a play on a friends one with just one pad on the nose, and it makes an amazing difference...
The trick seems to be to be able to turn it just enough so the front dips forward and the heli flies forward... without losing too much height, or spinning too far out of control. It's very frustrating!
my advice is use a medium sized needle or pin. you get a lot more tilt for the same addition downward load by having the weight way out in front like that. i wondered what those little pads were for, good thing i didn't read the manual :)
Oooh, interesting, and totally makes sense - I might give that a bash :)
