If you look up Drone it's male bee, a humming sound, or a unmanned flying camera weapon system
The multirotor we fly got called drones due to the sound and it's stuck , the funny thing is I was walking out of a field with my 630 heli and a woman said is that a drone ( the first thing people think of ) I was bit rude and said no it's a helicopter , drone pilots can't always fly helis but heli pilots can fly drones
I get the hump due to the fact it took 6 months to learn to hover a heli and 2 more months to get to a point of take off fly and land with no crash
Unless you have a heli with a counter rotating main rotor like I do, how do your control the anti-torq rotor when most transmitters only have controls for pitch and yaw and forward/backward motion? a real helicopter has the throttle on the collective and the cyclic and the anti-torq pedals.
Easy throttle would be fixed (as in a real heli motor that's gets brought up to a flying speed) , pitch on the transmitter would connect to a hand lever ,tail rotor goes to pedals,yaw and roll would go to cyclic, like this old video
R.C. Heli and quad controls are very similar, however a line of sight heli pilot is going to have a steep learning curve switching to FPV. I don't care how many years you've been flying figure 8s LOS, fpv is a whole new ballgame. Ask how I know lol.
I don't know, but, a helicopter has that anti-torque control with the pedals. a quadcopter does not. The quadcopter, as I understand, controls the anti-torque by having four (or more) rotors spinning in opposite direction. Turning is done with a combination of moving the yaw and pitch controls, the pitch to cause a slide in the direction of the turn, yawing in the direction of the turn. The helicopter requires a movement in the cyclic in the direction of the turn and a depression if the anti-torque pedal in the opposite direction of the turn. It works the same way, just different controls are used. I've seen several "Learn to Fly a Helicopter" videos.
