I'm having a difficult time finding settings for my Dx6i that mimic the E-flite HP6DSM radio that came with this heli. Anyone out there have something solid? I've found several setups but none that make it fly like the stock radio. I know, I know, why would you want it to fly like stock? The stock radio wasn't all that bad and I liked the docile-ness of the flight mode 0 and it could get up n go in FM1. Enough for a beginner anyway. Help a brother out people.

OK. So it's been a while since I've been on here. But I've been busy! I got my Heli-Max Axe all rebuilt and flying. Not that impressed with it. Still on the old FM band, had to upgrade to a LiPo for a little more air time. It flies, that's all I can say. Still, I built it and learned a lot in the process. Got the RealFlight 6 sim and been flying it ALL winter. I'm ready to take out my Blade SR and get some forward flight in, maybe a few loops. Got me a DX6i and figuring it out. Ordered the backlight kit for the Turnigy 9x and did the mod everyone is doing on YouTube. Came out nice. Also got a Blade mSRx. Squirrely little bugger. Been watchin lots of videos and getting a lot of knowledge. Hopefully this summer I'll get some flying in. Also bought a whole mess of airplane stuff from a guy at work with enough stuff to build one that flies and sold the rest on Craigslist so now I got me a Piper Cub.

Just got a new heli today. I know, I'm going backwards but knowledge is power and every little bit of experience helps. Got a good deal on a Double Horse Volitation 9053. Thought I would fly this to help me practice my orientation. It's got some bumps & bruises but the parts are in the mail! Also I finally got my Axe CP canopy & decals and I think I have it all set up correctly less a little trimming and waiting for a relatively calm day to practice on it.

Yeah, workin' tons of hours at work makes HeliStrike a dull boy. But it makes for lots of cash to play with my toys! I went to my local hobby shop today and broke down and bought a Blade 120 SR! Literally I just got back. I didn't want to spend a ton of money and it was reasonable enough. Well, it's not technically local it's about a 45 minute drive but the closest one. Yeah, I bought the training wheels too. I figured I'd crash this one a while before flying my Concept 30. Anybody else have one? Tips/tricks? Been flyin the crap outta my simulator and gettin better but I wanted to practice with the real thing. Gonna go have some fun now. Keep em' in the air kids!

My first Heli. My first blog. I've wanted one ever since I can remember. Got my tax return back and a friend at work had one for sale and here I am.
