trying out the go pro
#11
Another cold and windy day to fly temp 39
I have always had problems with my mgl asi so today I did a little testing
if you look at the asi in the video it changed a lot with just a little movement of the right hand so I used my GPS air speed to cross check.
To make a long story short the pitot tube was angled up to much and the only way to make it work right was point the nose down so in level flight
is was reading way to slow. after the video I bent it down and tested it again and got better readings. 
I'm cold and need RUM to warm up

Went out to lake today as normal and tried some baby torque turns at the house to use up the rest of the fuel.
This is the first time trying them so be nice. I think I understand how to do them I just need to do a lot more

It's fun but I think I'm starting my turn sometimes to soon. If somebody can point out the problem areas they see let me know.
My big problem is turning left, my momentum drops off fast as soon as I start the turn I guess I need to pull in some power but not sure.

Chuck: First off - I am no expert. 

By "Torque TUrns", might you mean pulling up with aft cyclic and then let the engine torque on the main rotor to aid you in the turn?

Then surely, as in pedal turns while hovering, right turns take less engine power while left pedal turns require more engine RPM feeding power required to the tail rotor in "pushing" the tail to the right.

Thus, Torque Turns are only effective in right turns, while left turns are technically pedal turns and thus require "pulling in some more power". (MHO) Huh

I know that turning to the left is not a torque turn, I was just trying to make the same type of turn to the left
so this weekend I'll pull in some power when doing it and see how it works
