not that bad, but some people seem desperate and are weak towards crimes of opportunity. So I gotta protect myself, and I just don't trust random people here, but I guess where can you anyways. Also, anywhere I want to fly there are too many people, bums, or trouble makers.

I need to join a flying club with a field here.

2Doggs, from what I've seen here in RCG, the clone threads are the most popular threads. Gathering from that I would say that clones are widely accepted here in RCG. I've bought clone parts and i've bought OEM parts, and they smash on a crash just the same. lol So in summary every one has the right to fly with what ever they can afford, and to throw, in this money pitt hobby that we have.


Oh and no flying today, it's raining here.

sunny and cold but the temps were in the upper 30s, I decided to test fly my EXI500 CF, I took the HK TT off and replaced with a belt drive, I had bad vibes that I couldn't track down. With the belt drive she was baby bottom smoooooooooooth OMG what a joy to fly. I guess the TT had a bad bearing... Anyway, next project before Christmas is I have a KDS Flymentor I am getting ready to install on this heli and for the life of me I don't know why....I guess because I have it

I'm finding any reason not to start my scale project....it looks like allot of work for a lazy person oh well, almost the entire fleet is flying nicely I wish it wasn't soooooo cold

took the EXI450Pro out for a test flight, after going over the head, lubing the bearings, making sure everything was tight, she flew perfect just like before the crash last summer took allot of tweaking but she is flying close to perfect.

Hope folks are getting air!!!!

You flew fine. Inverted & you were not all over the place. Good Job!

I got a few batteries through 130X (XP12A+HP08 one - cursed is still cursed - less than minute through first battery D gear slipped - LOL) and it flies (finally) nicely. Sorted out some vibes, replaced C gear (and CA it) and now is quite decent trainer (aside of occasional nervous 'wobble'). Had one battery through nano and now I know why leaving nano 6 days on cold (near freezing temperature) is not good for its canopy (got brittle and now it is broken) and ...

Four batteries through 250 (the biggest, most powerful heli I had today on the field! ). It does everything others can do (I can do with them) and a bit more. Even finished flying with nice 10m+ auto with it! (First 'proper' auto with 250 heli! WOW) Only trouble with that was occasional tail... insubordination - belt got stretched (and/or tail housing slightly loose) and belt started skipping... A bit. Didn't prevent me finished flying (piro flips - fine, finishing slow left pirouette back to tail in with wind behind me - not so fine). I am getting more and more confident with situations like that (autoing Protos after bringing it in from quite a distance without tail authority roughly two weeks ago) - definitively heading for a major crash! LOL

Just one flight today. Test flying the HK450pro tt with zyx flybarless. Flies awesome, so much better than my previous 450pro with flybar.

I flew a couple of packs. I was worried about the end of the world. So I started to fly crazy and I crashed one of my Helis. Other than that it was a good day
