Three packs on the 450 and one on the King V2. I haven't flown in a few days and boy did it feel fine...

6 packs on the v911, although one of the batteries is clearly dying a premature death. Good thing I have more on order. Felt better today, actually feel like I have the unit under control most of the time and slowly getting used to the rudder. Was perfectly still tonight and was able to confirm that the unit does in fact hover mostly stable when trimmed.

Flew my V929 this morning plus two V911's and all is fine. Late this afternoon my Walkera Y-6 Scorpion showed up. Heli direct RTF with Devo 7 $109.00. Anyway charged batteries and tried it out. Very impressed as very stable but its quick to respond. Very smooth and handle fine once out of groung affect. I will give it a workout tomorrow. No toy TX here but full on 7 ch heli radio. I bought some Turnigy batteries for my Genius C/P and they fit fine.

I flew 2 packs this morning on the 120SR in light wind with the last pack at the end of the flight a gust took it up in the tree branhes and knocked it down before i could recover. It appears to have damaged the rear motor as the rotor does not spin freely..possibly a bent shaft. I fly under a canopy of Live Oaks in my culdasac and have to be real careful in the wind. Regardless the streak is alive at 22 days without a miss.

Flight # 124-129 on my Blade 130 X this morning. Still amazed how great this one flys big air and my FFF loops have gotten a lot better. My son flew it a couple of flights and it amazes me how much it flys like his FBL 450.

Two packs on the v911 before my day fell apart. Finally nailing things like banked turns and landings. I have even master launching and retrieval by hand.

I tuned her up and took my V100D01 to the park for another try at flying it.
Through osmosis... It's slowly seeping-in how to fly this heli, well it's the longest I've been able to keep her in the air so far... fun tho. eheh

V100D01 practice (2 min 9 sec)


doh... just noticed the date on my #11 808 must've reset again.

Started out with V929, then flew U 816 quad. I am getting better with it and did not crash it or knock off any props. My favorite muti rotor is Walkera Scorpion Y-6. .Little guy is just pure fun to fly and handles very well. Hope my OR Ladybird V1 shows up soon. Devo 7 TX works very well and controls are unnreal smoothness.
