A miraculous break in the weather allowed me to squeeze in a couple of flights at home, before work this morning, which I videoed.
I have to say I'm really impressed. Couldn't believe how well it flew straight off the workbench. In fact it gave me so much confidence I started throwing it around a bit, even though I didn't have much space. I don't want to freak out the neighbors by flying over there sections, and there's a two story house behind the camera.
The first video is the first flight of this unit and has a couple of stops for tail gain adjustment. There was no drift, but there was a small bounce. I think I have too much mechanical gain, so I'm going to try moving the ball in a hole and see how it goes. I didn't have time to do this today.
The flybarless side of it is flawless, so far. Probably the best flybar feel I have experienced from a FBL heli. Very stable and smooth to fly and no odd cyclic issues. I'm using the middle model # 3 - Soft 3D. There are two models before this and 2 after this. You can load them without loosing any of your setup settings.
There is no tail pre-compensation on the 5 models provided, but the tail still held well on hard pitch pumps, until I lowered the gain too far on the second flight.
The second video is uploading. I'll also try to video some inverted and backwards flight, when I get to go to the field.
Edit: Forgot to mention. I fitted my testing canopy (one I could live with getting damaged) for the first flight. It's one of my good one's on the second flight.
