That's what happens when my little boy tries to fly his helicopter.

Call me back when it will lift 900kg to the top of a hill inch-perfect.

You can do that with an R22 but the passenger vomits

What a bunch of miserable sods on here tonight

Incredible skill to do that with any degree of repeatability!

Hardly being miserable when you know it's just a matter of flicking a switch to make flying upside down 'normal', and setting up the crash avoidance (CAT) system.

Not to mention;
● Additional peripherals planned for the 3GX includes 3-axis accelerometer, 3-axis magnetic compass, and GPS positioning system. While the commonly available position hold gyro system utilizes only 6 sensors, 3GX’s total of 10 sensors ensure positioning of helicopter with superior accuracy, providing the ultimate solution for aerial photography or other special purposes.

This is flown only with a rotational rate stabilization on each axis.
No flicking switches for flying inverted.
No flicking switches for automation like self leveling, gps/baro position hold.

Attitude is controlled directly by the pilot.

Switches are only for different RPM's (motor off, 1200/1500/1800 (example)) and sensitivity of the sticks.

How do I know? I fly model helicopters like these as well, no as good as this guy though...

Clearly you don't know about the Gpro flybarless system he has on this machine then

Now if those blades could be scaled up, and made to fit the R22, quite possibly they would last a life time (or its lifetime)

First you say 3GX then you say GPro?
Those are two different systems.
Video is from february 2014.
No GPro back then.

You quote:
Not to mention;
● Additional peripherals planned for the 3GX includes 3-axis accelerometer, etc...

The additional functions can be added by the APS gyro. This system was not mounted, as there is no GPS sensor on the horizontal tail fin.

And there is no such thing as a crash avoidance system (CAS/CAT, whatever you wish to call it). Not yet at least.

Sorry to say this, but clearly you don't know what you are talking about...

Switchless inverted went out years ago.
Nobody (and especially Szabo) uses it these days...

With that heli doing what it's doing in the video, how on earth would you keep switching...?!

Next time you're near SW Brum, come and have a play with mine...

Hiller put rotors on the bottom since 1950's

Complete with a real pilot , no computers or augmented stabilization required

Pilot can even shoot a rifle at any pesky kids in the neighborhood who are flying toy helicopters upside down

Yea yea, all well and good, but I bet he can't land an 8 inch Chinook on a hangar roof beam 40 ft up, and then have to get it off by throwing rolls of Sellotape at it because the IR receiving sensor is now shielded by an inch of steel.

Skills where and when they are needed
