Like I said in PM, I've kind of gotten used to the issue, and as long as I make sure I keep my fingers away from the props at all times, and the controler at hand to "blip" the throttle if it takes off, I do ok.
Unfortunately, by this point I've wrecked the blades where it won't fly right anymore, and I end up crashing it too often. So It's retired until the parts kit gets here. I orederd it through Amazon at the same time I ordered the S022 (1/1/12), and it still hasn't gotten here yet. I guess it's coming from Canada via "Canadian Post".
For the time being I got my mini Chinook S026 yesterday and ... OH MAN what a balst that is! WAY easier to fly than the S022. Better for indoors flying, that's for sure. Only gripe I have so far is, I wish the battery lasted longer. 5-7 mins playing then, wait 45 minutes to charge.
