Thanks. I didn't add any information because it currently looks better than it flies. I was already having some lvc problems before I put the scale fuse on. I've been researching here and there and it looks like anything from batteries, or a bad motor, to a control board issue. I have some Turnigy 160s on the way so I'm going to see if that solves the problem. I'm very pleased with the way it looks though.

Thanks for the kind words guys. The chain link fence ate my Gaui 200 in the past, lol. Once I have some free time I will take it to the park and open her up into the free skies. Thanks.

Beautiful ship and masterfully flown Jim. I was stationed at the USAF Sattelite Test Center (Big Blue Cube) in Sunnyvale back when half the city was still orchard property.

Boyd,

Not much in the way of orchards now!

Thanks for the appreciation. There is a link to another of my birds in the Smartmodel scale blades thread. It's there because it uses Kin's 650mm blades.

Regards,

Jim Davey

I'm sure everyone remembers a few times in school or at a business meeting where you're daydreaming about something and suddenly hear your name called, and have to admit "I'm sorry, I wasn't paying attention".

I read the description and the only word I really saw or paid attention to was (small). Maybe it was the parentheses, maybe it was a Freudian thing - I dunno - but it was the only word that seemed to register.

So the first thing I notice in the video is the grass about half as high as the heli. Man, that is small, smaller even than the 300 FP that I learned on. 250? 120? That's a lot of detail for a 120!
Then I noticed no flybar, and more than 2 blades? So what is this thing? And about then is when I read "Rotortech 600mm blades". Where is that facepalm smily when you need it?


Beautiful heli, and great flying.
