Hovering and flying around the living room in the dark the led would show a wall very close but not light up the way for flying. Hitting the lights high in the room the copter fell towards the floor stopping hovering just over the floor and coming back up slow. Not from anything I had done I just push the hover button on the way down and it stopped in a few feet. Seeing this work on so cheap a toy tells me that safe and these flying helps while not perfect are getting better ever day. Just from unit's gotten a year ago. This show's in the fact I was not giving this to my sion and could do it. Jumping out side at late night flying my night out front. Now lots of indoor and night time fun.

Adding another indoor flying toy with smart auto hovering 3 flight modes from easy to hard flying. 3 Channel infrared control. Led lighted for night time flying and yes it all seems to work. After owning a few helicopters this one flew easy right out the box the smart hovering worked so did the modes. This little indoor toy was 19.95 with usb or charger recharge. I had time to get the hang of it hovering all over the living room better each flight. Soon crossing the room going high and low the led shows up a gives just enough light to fly by. May invest in a better helicopter with safe soon, till than flying my indoor toy no replacement battery so fly till it bad and throw away unit but not bad for the price to have a little fun....Continue Reading

While Kathryn no longer use's her swing. Its been in the way for as long as been flying. I used the flag to help when to fly and when not to. I well now have the deck for take off and landings. Had to come across deck before got very close to my back door. I was flying around,throw over and near the swing with my night vapor many times for fun. Would fly around and just over with my champ. But never throw i was coming in very fast because of the angle of wing I would not slow down and stall. I would come in high start the turn loss lift start falling down and level the wings as I came out of the turn and the plane would start going up. Hoping for low winds sunday to step out back trim up the runway and try out the deck.

Kathryn sets back and fly's FMS model Simulator doing good off into into the blue. I found the Firebird Statos and it and her fly better good. She well crash every now and than, but reloads and fly's away. She has always done well on this model. I like to see her flying her model or mini vapor its just a start. She did so well on FMS with a few planes is what made me get her a real rc plane. What about free is bad.

Well its spring new weed eater gotten last night carb came off lawn mower and cleaned now its running cut out main path of runway. Still have to cut low grass near runway past years runway 3 x 12 feet low grass 10 by 50 feet . Dirt must be level and no grass or roots or wholes. now dirt section 3 feet by 25 feet much larger than first year's. Also land on high grass coming over runway into hill stalling just before hill. Most times fly the champ right out my hand and do a stall landing on grass. Get all this done much slower than years before. Been very windy this year so I was slow to start getting everything ready for spring flying....Continue Reading

Well I when a year still running a two xt computer's. I could not be more lost on this thing. Looks to be a salesman of nothing a price for everthing and you own nothing even after you pay for it and keep paying for it on your 100.00 a month free internet. The last time I went to a free park did not cost me anything. Trying all the free games that are not free. My son's in my room helping me every few min. May need to get another flight simulator for this one. And run a wireless radio for it maybe my Dx5 for it, has very few usb ports on it. well I did get a picture up with this post.

Light small low wing high dihedral calm day plane. It took a little bit of time to get this plane down. Take off at 3/4 throttle than flying at 1/2 throttle or less took more than a few trimming's. Landings under some power on a no wind day. Easy to get blown away. Nice small yard plane not much room needed for a turn. Dsm2/DSMX Sprktrum plane coming in BNF and RTF both. Small box easy to carry fit's in most small car's. Easy to fly, Maybe not a trainer good 2nd or 3rd plane. You well fly it as a new guy but not level and no up and down. These things or knowing come with time and learning. I have keep it looking good over time never flying in a wind over 3 mph. It and my inum are the only planes I have not flown in the wind. A plane well worth the money and a lot of fun....Continue Reading

I love seeing and flying my planes. No one love a good plane flying throw the air more than me. I tried my hand at building planes loved a lot , But soon found easy to build ,much harder to make fly. Went with Spektrum radio for BNF planes. Found a lot of good planes fly well some hold up great some not so good. A back yard flyer soon got in to micros more than my big planes. Only small dirt runway in back yard for take off and landing. Found many of my big planes needed a good runway to get speed up before lift off so I had control. Got more than a few RTF planes and lots of controls to play with. My micros I call a hobby in a box. With my small controls I just take some box's with me a little tape ca safe glue and ready to go flying. I have a lot of planes now and do a lot of flying when its not to cold or windy. I get up and fly 6am and sun set best time no wind during the day. Most of my crash's were mid day flights sun in my eye's plane drops out of air so fast could not do anything. My 2 Champ's and sport cub s I be my plane up the most. Both can fly slow or fast and sometimes "I fly them in a little wind for fun. Over grass in my flying field light planes hold up so well most times not even needing repairs....Continue Reading

I want say the Inum is the best flying plane I now have because it is not. Right out the box I found it would fly in a 10 feet circle around the living room about 5 feet at 1/2 speed. Not hitting anything just a nice circle. It seemed to what to hold that circle as I went up on the power it would increase the bank and try to hold the turn. If gotten to fast falling to the floor. I found I liked this fact and made it easy for a small house to fly in. I am having fun with it, yet to take out side for a flight. It has been flying about 5 times now everything still works and no repairs yet. Hey it is a 40.00 plane so I don't expect it to fly like a 300.00 plane. Still find the small battery plug very small and hard to work with, I must be careful when pugging the battery in. Would be easy to screw the plane up there.

Over the last month's the fact I had copd did not mean alot to me. Told to quit smoking right away while I ould get out without a o2 michine. As it got cold out with all these blood thinner's it was hard to stay warm. So more and more computer time and less and less flying. I also needed o2 more and more, very easy to run out of .breath when cashing a plane in the field. My finger meter showing I needed the o2. Never stop buying new planes and even adding a safe plane to my fleet. As you see cigs in a old picture of mine. Now I fight for air and look forward to warmer weather for flying. Working on getting air in to my lungs with a lower carbon rate. Knowing to quit the cigs work up to more time away from my o2 tanks. And more time in the air with all these new planes.

Slow to buy this plane, was not sure how I would do a 2 channel plane. While I fly well and know what to do most times I'm very slow at take off. This plane made a left turn around the living from right out the box. But it would fly a perfect around the room without hitting any wall. So this gave my time to get control of the plane. A few times as my speed was increased it would turn harder till I crashed from getting to low and ran out of wing lift. This little guy is better strong as my many crash show and its still fine. The hard part for me was hooking this little battery up the right way. But I am happy with this plane for indoor flying so far.

Wingspan 8.4 in weight . 3 oz 9 inch long indoor RC plane. Ordered from my local hobby shop today for $39.95 = tax. Everything in a box just take it out and go flying. Because of size taped and checked box for safe plane storage. This is a little plane just right for in the house. Now to read manual from cover to cover do a flight check and go flying.

I am a backyard fly guy and fly around my home out back out front inside or out. i was not so good 12 months ago a a very small runway out back. My little planes did fine my bigger plane bent wheels. Soon my big planes were field or park planes and my planes under 2 oz and 24 inch wings were house and back yard planes'. This has worked well for me , It has been safe and most times and only took a few rules. No kids out near my flying, if there out I am in. Many times flying my night vapor at 3 am. No wind no people so much fun ....Continue Reading

Yes I use this transmitter all the time, yes it has limit's but I have learned to fly with it too. Sometimes for testing sometimes down the street. And yes I have a DX6i and DX5 radio. I like this little radio it binds with most BNF micro's. I do try to fly at no more than 100 feet at 200 feet away, or at 200 feet no more than 100 feet away. I do use my dx6i if I flying one of my champs far fast and high at a large field. Most of my planes that are spektrum have been up at one time with a champ RTF control. The tramsmitter I use all the time with night vapor or mini vapor or any small plane. 3 or 4 channel it seems to work fine. I have 4 of these radio's and never wanted to sale any of them. They fit in the box and I love having a plane and control and charger in a box to go.
