Wasn't able to make any flight attempts this weekend. Should be able to get a flight in tomorrow if the weather cooperates. The next flight i'm gonna do more than just hover for the whole pack and we shall see if the bird holds together.

This morning I put pack # 5 through my 500 . Im super stoked at how smooth everything is . Ive been getting use to the higher head speed and sound of blades at speed.. I'm use to a b400. Im just doing easy hovers for now but I want to start sending it out there like I fly my 120 sr. I bang the snot out of the sticks when flying my 120 sr but I get all girl like when I spool up my 500.

lol, wait till you spool up a 600. I was just looking at some pictures of a logo exxtreme 800. It had a huge line of helis with it at the end.Mcpx, MSR, Blade 400, Atom 500, Trex550, 6HV, Trex600, Logo600, Kasama Srimok, Logo 800 Xxtreme. The size difference between all of them is just ridiculous. That 800 logo is really over the top. Thing is gigantic. Wish they made a heli that size for a bit less than its 2500 kit price. I imagine it would be fairly exciting watching the blades spin up on that.Makes even the 600 seem like it was a 450 or something comparitively. On the same note, I wonder why the clone companies never clone anything besides align. Would love to see a gaui, outrage, compass, or logo clone. Heres the link if anyone wants to see the pic. http://www.helifreak.com/attachment....4&d=1337268233 Would love to see a vid of a mcpx hovering right next to the 800. All the downwash would probably push that mcpx all over the place though. On a different note, now that I got the 500 functional, prolly going to sell the mcpx as I haven't really flown it much lately anyways.

I think so..I tried talking him down. Letting him know " we all crash" and its part of the hobby. Seriously I just dont think he has the temperment for it. For a sec I really thought he was going to kick it into a street..Dont know this for a fact. But i think he see's me with my helis and the way i fly And wanted to be part of that. And as we all know ther is a pecking order of working ones skills up. Not like we woke up one day and say " hey I think ill fly a 600" good guy but seems to get to angry to fast. whats that ya say eagle, ya need two servos ? lol

It does get hot. I'm thinking of cutting the shrink wrap off the face and gluing a old computer heat sink to it.
I lift off and go into FF before the main rotor gets to 60% or so. It's kind of cool. I do that with the CC ESCs also. No wag or anything if I keep a scale like take off

Well I don't need any more servos.. It seems like a nice heli; could you rebuild it for a few bux and re-sell it unless it is totally busted up. I mean, with my box of spare parts, it sounds like I would have it in the air in about two hours if the gyro is still good. I am building a Fun Cub and a glassed Nitroplanes P-51 right now, so don't need any more projects.

Don't know what to say about the guy, I have tried setting up and flying 450s for others, but it is hard. Nothing seems right until I spend 4 hours or so with it, and don't want to do that.

Or just keep it for spare parts. If the swash, tail and gyro is good, and head is mostly good, it was $100 well spent if you still fly 500s. You can change the 510s to MG for $22 or so each shipped, and are good for FBL.

I found out I won after checking my mail on my tablet in Branson. I would of kept up on my rcgroups, but the only way the wifi worked at the hotel I had to stand in that hall with my left foot raised and leaning a little to the right.

HK 550 $123.64 flash sale

http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...dProduct=23038

I...am tempted. I realize what I said before, but $125...I could have it outfitted for $400 total with decent servos.

I don't mind FB or belt. I have a half dozen 6s5000s. Should I not do this? Or go for it.
