This works by basically setting the throttle for 90% and transferring throttle stick output to the blade pitch (collective). Power and RPM remains constant (a LOT) while the blade pitch changes to create more or less lift. And for inverted flight, the blade pitch can completely invert.

I have one with a fixed blade pitch I'm just starting to use as a trainer. On the fixed pitch ones, lift is a factor of power and RPM only. It is currently in several pieces waiting for parts from an unfortunate encounter with gravity.

Cool! I'm not the only rc guy on here.

You did a great explanation but I doubt many will have a clue what all that means. Helis are so complicated, I think I'll stick with airplanes.

That's why airplanes are my full scale hobby an helicopters are the toy hobby.

I have a mini-copter that I crash all the time. I couldn't imagine flying something with all that power. That guy is good on the stick.
