Piccolo hover video!

Hello guys. I'm trying to post an "old" video of my Piccolo hovering in my backyard. This was only my 3rd flight with it and I was still getting the hang of it.

So far, I'm only able to see it using Netscape 6.2. I hope you guys have better luck.

Here it is :

Let me know if you guys were able to see it.

Chachin..

PS: My battery pack was kinda hanging back then .

I downloaded to desktop and It worked fine for me... I guess she's a challenge to control compared to the eco or the logo eh? But I guess you will progress a lot faster then I did, picc is my only heli.

Hodgepodge, try downloading it to your desktop like Jordan did. Maybe you can work your way around from there.

Yes, the Piccolo was a bit challenging to fly.. even after transitioning from a well flown Eco 8. I can now fly it way better than when the video was recorded, but it took a little while to fine tune the control inputs as I like them.

I'm still practicing (whenever it's raining outside). Now I can fly it as if it was just another heli. But I can't build up any speed or else it'll start losing control. I'm sure the CP upgrade will make it A LOT more docile.

I even did my first pirouette with the Piccolo this morning . It wasn't bad at all.

it's a .mov file (better if you ask me) and can only be used with quick time. If you want to save the file right click the link and select "save target as"

I amazed at the conning angle of the blades for such a micro. !

I had to save the file and open it to view it

That is a very large coning angle, surely there is a mod to decrease the head bending (or is it the blades?)

Looks like my attempts at hovering my hornet

More please!!!

I wish I could... but my digital camera "passed out" this week . Thank God I bought the maintenance plan. I'll take it in tomorrow morning so that it can get fixed.

I'll try and post more stuff later.

I appreciate the interest guys!
