It looks like the V911 is a handful. LMAO with the chicken dance at the end of the first hook up. And a little one after the second hook up. What was that about

at the first one, I actually hit the door ... NOT good ...

second one ... dunno.

What I CAN tell you, though, is that it is already difficult enough to hook the little suckers up - it it A LOT worse to try to get rid of them again (unhook them on the ground by actually FLYING the heli.

So a long you play the grapple over hooking stuff up, its a "common" game. Once you want people to UNhook the stuff again while the heli flies, THAT is when you are going to separate the men from the boyz ...

LOL, yeah, I think I've only succeeded in hooking & unhooking the target ONCE in the same flight.

Sven, that canopy almost looks like an Xtreme one for a CX-2/Lama. Will it fit a CX-2?

Well, what do you think how I feel ??? all worthless and a looser, not being able to keep up with the masters of videoing mCX2 challenges ??? ...

... ...JK!!!

I had to go to work today (thankfully) ´cause the place I work at never closes down ... but there is ample down time today, so I am "having fun" with you guys here ... and prepare my next challenge ("Simon sez ..." - and the "not-so-young-anymore-ones ...like myself ... might get an idea what that might be all about ...)

However, this takes a lot of "creative preparation" ... so FORGIVE me that my videos dont grow on trees like some other peoples ... ...

Gonna be however once I finally get around to it ....
(I´ll post up some pics later today/tonite ...)

I, obviously meant, will it fit an MCX-2? If you're going to paint it, it HAS to be BLUE!!

LOL. Or you can go buy a Nine Eagles Draco canopy. It comes in blue and orange. I'm flying the orange one right now but the blue one fits just fine and looks good, too!
