Thanks for the very encouraging report! I have 4 of these little gems (new style) and all fly absolutely perfectly. I have approx 35 flights on each and all but one stock battery are still going strong. I time my flights and shut it down before 4:30 is reached.
A tip for you guys that might be as anal as I am about that spot-on perfect hands off hover. If, after you've done the out-of-the box mechanical trimming, you still see a bit of TBE (toilet bowl effect) 'wandering', loosen the flybar screw 1/2 to 1 full turn. Even if you think it's already loose, do it anyway and you'll more than likely be rewarded with that "perfect hover".
