Holly Monkey's!!! Did my first 450 maiden flight!!! I hovered it in the backyard and it lifted straight up nice and level. No tail wag or drift that I could see! This thing is awsome!!

Only hovered it for about 4 min about 5-7 feet off the ground to check all directions to see how it responded. Response was good and it hovered nice and level. Shouldn't need to make any adjustments right now.

I did notice as it was initially spooling up, the whole heli was jumping around on it's skids while on the ground. It smoothed out just a bit as I increased the throttle and got it off the ground. I think the blades are out of balance which I never checked. They are wooden blades and wanted to know how I could check the balance of the blades and correct if need be. I don't have a blade balancer, so wanted know if there was a way I could do it without one.
