Tandem Helicopter

I would like to see a video on the flight of a tandem rotor helicopter (like the Boeing Chinook). It would be great to understand the unique controls and concerns not to mention a recommendation on aircraft, makes and controllers.

I am very new to the sport and very interested. You guys have been great getting me up to speed on the majority of the hobby thus far.

We need to figure out how to get all the helicopter fans to see this and respond...I assume thing with a larger response will have a greater chance of making an episode (or at least in the near future).

I am just starting this hobby and have always LOVE these helicopters. Want to know how hard it would be for a beginner.

Hard. I don't consider myself a beginner when it comes to helicopters, and the controls are just... hard. For sure it needs it's own flight controller, as I would need many many mixes to make the swashplates work together.
