Still torn between the mCP X BL and the 130X. The 130X looks like it would be much better in the performance department, but with all the tail issues and bearings and slop and bad servos and needing constant upgrades, not to mention the mCP X BL is a little smaller, and cheaper, and more maintainance free... I think the mCP X BL would be my best bet! I am also a kid and can't really afford the expensive upgrades and constant repairs for the 130, again, I think the mCP X BL is better for me...

Of course now that I got the servo gears back on, the belt snapped.

Replaced the servo gears (first time successfully taking a servo apart and putting in new servos) and it is alive to fly another day!

Since I threw my old rc workbench out the door a while back (literally). I have decided to make one or get one. Either make one from wood or get a 5 foot folding table. It will be interesting. Plan to use a bulletin board for parts and notes, just like this:


As you can see they used a bulletin board to hold he parts by push-pinning them to the board. I want to do that. Hopefully will paint it black, too.

Did my maiden flight with my 250SE today. First flight went well. The $12 gyro holds pretty freaking well and no wag at all. Had power set to 55% in normal mode then upped it to about 75%. When it was at 55% and I hit IU the tail moved, the IU power was 100%! That was when I upped the Normal mode's power. Second flight went pretty well, but I lost visibility because the woods were exactly the same color as my heli. Lost it, luckily I hit T-Hold and minimal damage: Only broke the makeshift training gear. (which, it technically didn't break, just the things holding it to the heli) Will have a video late.

Happy Flying,

Keith
