Thanks. The video reviews on the *REAL* 808's are impressive, even through youtube. I can't buy via ebay tho so i just got whatever i can come across. Maybe someday i'll go into FPV and i'll get a good camera kit.

That's actually the first time i've flown in an open area since the maiden flight. The heli was repaired in a couple of days but all i've done since then was hover practice in the church parking lot (middle of village, big building, trees and houses all around so it's kinda sheltered)

Helicopter Maiden Flight and Crash (2 min 37 sec)


That's the maiden flight several months ago and it didn't handle wind so well, it was supposed to be a hover at eye level, but it actually got lifted up above the sightline That's why i've been flying the GeniusCP same time everyday regardless of wind, so i'll have experience for whatever i encounter the next time i brought out the 450. There were a few times in the recent video where the heli actually climbed up really fast when the wind got underneath but atleast i was ready for it
