One bat on the MiniCP. It's amazing to see how muscle memory works. Almost every flight tends to go better, the heli is feeling more and more like an extension of yourself. Amazingly smooth CP heli.

Flew V929 and great Quad. Flew U 816 also and little bird sure gets fast when you push stick foward. Recieved a bnf V911 orange and just had to give it a flight. Right out of box flew very well. Recieved a tail motor for down bird [V911]
Anybody know if V911 tail motor will fit/work in a 9958 ?? My first 4 ch mico was this 9958 and motor acts up badly. Heli has never been bashed up but has taken some wall hits etc.

Three packs out back on the King V2; it's a muggy evening in this part of Vermont. For the past couple of days it's been real windy, so I've been flying the EXI. But the wind died down so I was able to get's some packs in on my 'ol friend the King V2. I'll bet I am closing in on 800 packs on that poor model :-)

I flew my V929 R01 for the first time with LED's, in almost complete darkness !

4x LiPo's of pure fun, all dogs in nearby backyards went crazy (they seems to get used to beetle, but not at night with lights !!!)

TX LED mod is so simple and gives so much fun !!!

I bought one of these five years ago. Banged it up a little and put it away after replaced anything broken. Bought some new batteries and plan on flying it soon as it is almost new. I also have a Heli- Max CP , both on 72 mgz. Might as well use them as they have no value today.

Flown my Gaui x5 fes FBL machine today.
Done 3 packs of med-hard 3D.
Since getting this, I have retired my Walkera rubbish.
A truly excellent Bird imo.

Thanks it looks fine and found instructions. I also have two Honey bees on 72 mgz. one new in box other ready to go. E-sky were real popular five years ago. Worked then so will work now. Having a good time with 100 sized birds but time is coming real soon to step it up a notch or three. The look of all these helis I like but want to do a few scale types. No tuna boats but like Brovo SX types. Glad you are having good service with King V2.

Three packs on the CP2 out back. It's been a good three weeks since I flew the model, and the first pack was a little off. I didn't biff the model or anything, but at one point I was flying way up high and thought to myself, "I better bring her in a little closer." The other two packs were better. The CP2 takes a good bit of collective management to fly it smoothly and by the third pack I was in the groove...

Finished converting my Twister Skylift coaxial tandem to 2.4GHz with the use of a Turnigy 8ch receiver. I just put it through its maiden flight controlling it with a Turnigy 9x and I declare success!!! Now it's a matter of tuning and tweaking to get this big bird to fly a little more smoothly, but given that I'm using the er9x firmware, I've got a lot of options to work with. Woo hoo!

Flew 2 1000mah LiPos with my X250 with less than optimal settings but it was good enough to practice turns with it in the big empty-ish park.

First LiPo... at the end of video, I think I had a brain-fart or something... and binge her into the ground. lol
X250 practice circuits 01 (4 min 2 sec)


On the last pass I lose orientation with the X250 on the other side of the field, I manage to see the orange front-end...*phew* and bring her back-in.
X250 practice circuits 02 (6 min 21 sec)

5 flights on my two MSRXs out at a park. The wind was blowing a bit and so I did some pretty fun wind surfing. Got the heli so high I couldn't quite tell orientation a few times. Good fun.
