I'm getting out of work early today, so I charged some packs this morning and they are there waiting for me :-)

I flew one of the 250s today. It was good no crash! I might take the 450 out later on.

Flew the Solo Pro V, on 2 seperate locations. First when I had to wait for a collegue to show up, to hand him some parts he would need later that day for a repair, and end of the day on a parking lot near a small hospital. Went great.

Yep, I got to fly today!!!

Raining like the dickens but that's OK because now that the mSR X is dialed in it's a blast to fly in the office.

Got to try a couple of coordinated turns after working on them on the sim, not pretty but I'm getting the hang of it.

It's getting cold and dark now days. But I still took out my 250 clone. It's time now to build another and get back on the sim.

I flew a pack out back at Dusk on my KingV2. I'm rusty from less flying during the winter but no crashes :-)

-Well if you're not crashing, you're not flying :-) You know, it seems to me that rebuilding is part of the program...

Sorry to hear of your crash and, no doubt, the ensuing damage assesment and parts order. If it's any consolation, we've all been there. Keep the faith amigo and happy flying.

Got seven flights in on my Mcpx today! It was beautiful today...sunny and slightly breezy and mid fifties. Now I gotta figure out why my Mcpx won't go to full positive pitch like it should after I installed a Microheli solid main shaft...stupid thing. I didn't even change any settings!

Fixed my positive pitch issue and flew a couple packs out in the street, in the dark, under the street light. I kinda like night flying! Hmm...Mcpx LED mods anybody?

10th day owning a 6ch heli and I tried to practice nose-in hover in my living room (raining outside)

Nose In - 6ch R/C Heli Training, day #10 (1 min 0 sec)


didn't really get any good practice in, just a bit of near-crash recoveries =P

I'd learn a lot faster outside with some room to make mistakes, but hey, stick time is stick time!

It's a nice day today, so i decided to take out one of my other 250s, i'm going to be replacing her with a new Tarot gyro in a couple of weeks. She flew as expected. No crashes! So it was a good day.
