Excellent work, and factor in the degree of difficulty I give these photos a "10"!

Nice job. I'm curious how you did the inverted flight. Are you able to reverse the direction of the rotor?

I was in Brookstone, an upscale novelty shop, a couple of days ago and saw several of those little helicopters. They looked so flimsy, it's hard to believe they can fly!

I could have sworn that shot of the upsdied down Heli was actually a shot of it just before it crashed upside down on the earth.
That's a slick shot.
Aloha

thanks all.

For anyone interested in this little heli, you can check out this vid, not the best, but shows how it is very different from the ones you will find sold in many stores. This is a fast heli designed for those who already fly and want something very small.

Calr, with both RC and real helis (apart from some basic RC ones) the pitch of the blades is adjusted in flight. You generally go from about -4 to +11 degrees. For inverted flight you just have a pattern that is symmetrical so you can have -11 to +11 degrees thus enabling the inverted hover and much more.

Mark - the first shot is fantastic. Really well done with such a small subject and shallow dof. Really great stuff.

I read somewhere once that it was impossible for a helicopter to do a loop or inverted flight but I have since seen them do it. It has to be MUCH more difficult than with an airplane.
