The Blade SR model was a little too easy to nose in, so I decided to practice on the 450.

High Def video to follow:

Simon.... very nice! Nice slow smooth turns and your orientation is really improving with each of those nose in hovers you do. I've still only done a short hover with mine and then the weather went sour. Looks oK right now, so I'm charging my sunglasses cam. We'll either get a hover or a crash... either would be exciting. LOL

Yes I was tempted & they seem to be getting good reviews. However tightness prevailed and I ordered Zippy 25C's

Best to all

A charge rate of 10c sounds great until you look up how much a power adapter costs to provide the amperage.

10c for a 2200mah is 22 amps. If you were looking for a straight 300 watt ac adapter capable of doing that you'd wind up paying a small fortune.

Easiest way to do it is to buy a pc power supply and modify it. You'll need a single rail 300w minimum power supply.

Here's a thread detailing how to modify the power supply.

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=446764

Here's a listing on newegg for 300 to 350 watt power supplies with a single 12v rail.

The helicopter itself is rendered in 3d, but the background images are all panoramic photographs as Magic said. Almost all of your modern sims use them. It allows them to make a much more detailed model while at the same time using relatively low gpu usage.

I've got Phoenix turned up to its highest possible settings in order to look like that. I have vsync turned on, so my frames per second are limited to 60 in it. It never drops below that unless recording with fraps (which limits the fps to 29.97 while it records).

I'll record some video of me flying in Phoenix later with floats and landing on a lake. The lake itself is rendered and has ripple effects.
