Just to update, been doing good with the trex600. large fig 8's with good banking turns at both ends, stall turns, pirouettes, autorotations etc etc....infact my heli flamed out at about 60 feet in FFF and I managed to bring it down nice and sweet so am quite thrilled. videos soon!!

Cheers

means engine shutdown ,this word basically used for jetengines not for piston engines where excess of
1)Fuel flow without enough oxygen to burn inside the combustion chamber ,fuel comes out the engine and burns outside.
2)Sometimes this occurs even if engine running out of fuel! or bad & blocked fuel nozzels.
3)Compressor stall which will lead to (1) point and even when FOD occurs (foregin object insertion).

example of flame out due to bird strike

To increase thrust you need more  money! But to reduce weight you  need nothing!

"Flame out" in field speak means "engine quit mid-air" Smiley  That is where autorotation skills come into saving a lot of money Wink

Thanks anwar....yes we do use "Flame Out" or "Dead stick" on the RC field for engine quitting mid air. However, 'Dead Stick' isn't quite apt for helis since the stick is quite alive with the collective for autorotating Smiley

Good to see you taking it step by step Thumbs Up 

Try to land (carefully) with the nose a tiny bit earlier than the tail... (as if there is a SMALL amount of forward elevator).  It helps the tail blades from hitting the ground first, and subsequent issues.  If you over do it, it again causes the tail to slam down, which is also not good.

I flare it around 4-5 feet up (aft cyclic and some collective) and then level it out after the speed has bled (fwd cyclic) and settle her down level with full collective (rather than the slight nose down). By the time it touches down, 1. the head-speed is extremely low, 2. there is no power driving the rotors(thr hold) and 3. I have consciously loosened the tail rotor blades in the grips. Had perfect results on the 50 or so autos I have done. Even if the fin does ever happen to touch first, there is little chance of stripping the bevels....

This is an issue when you do them from 100+ feet, on solid ground.  The loose tail blades is the first line of defense.  Getting into the habit helps.  Bleeding the blade speed close to nil is also something to be careful about.

Your grassy field is an advantage !
