Forgot to mention that when I was outside on sunday with my MSRXs, I had a what could only have been a humming bird chasing my heli around at one point! Now THAT was an awesome display of flying. My poor heli couldn't possibly compete.

One battery outside on the SP270, and 3 batteries on the Champ, practicing mild aerobatics, loops, half loops followed by a roll (Immelmann is what it's called, I believe) negative loops (although the final part becomes more like a flip as the light plane "bleeds" to much speed during the inverted part) and barrel rolls.

I also fired up good ole 270 Solo-pro. Also flight on V929..so smooth and little U 816. Little UFO U 816 is really fun to fly. Some don't like it but just easy on the sticks. Push that elevator hard forward and it moves out fast.

Just fired up the big Twister Skylift coaxial tandem recently converted to FlySky 2.4GHz and did some more hovering in my studio for a few minutes. Then I got brave and did some right and left circuits around the room for the remaining few minutes on the battery. I've really got to go find a gym somewhere that I can fly this thing!

-It seems to me that humming birds are very good heli-pilots :-)

Flew my 9958s and my TRex 100X in my indoor studioe while waiting for dinner to finish cooking.

Swapped canopies on my Esky Tandem late last night and took it up for a couple of batteries as well. I had some terrible vibrations on the rear main shaft but that was fixed by loosening the canopy screws (I had them tightened all the way down) a turn or two. It flew very well but I think I'll probably need to replace the rear outer shaft and rear upper maingear because it's wobbly.

I got a fleet of helis that would choke ya but lately I've been flying my mCPx and mQx. The mQx is a bit boring but I have been looping and rolling this thing and it is my new favorite flier This thing is indistructable...kind of seems when I do crash I miss the 3 acres of yard and seem to hit the VERY hard driveway

Anyway, this weekend I will pull out the TREX550 but for now....another pak in the mQx
