I just did the solid boom on my nano yesterday.I split the original boom and the wire came right out. No need to redo the plug. I like the rigidity. The extra weight isn't too noticeable.

Yep, tail is much more stable now, 95% of the wag is gone. Depends on the Mode it is in.

Just got rid of the Shudders it was having last night in Idle Up modes. Deox-It spray on the Servos and good as new again! Re oiled the top bearings too. Pretty smooth and quiet now. Will do 4-6 turn fast Piros in place hands off Cyclic.

My motor is slipping up again. need to tack it with some QuickGrip...

Stayed in with a half Migraine, hardly can stand to hear any sound above real low levels.

Heli all fixed up good and charged all 6 packs so I can fly at my daughter's 16th party this afternoon.

Ordered a Xoar 15x7 replacement and a 15x8 to try since my Kv was lowered on the 3625.

Ordered a Real 40A HW ESC.

Ordered a new Canopy and Fin so I have a tailfin again and a canopy spare. Ordered a spare FS and another spare stock tailboom and motor.

Spring type flying weather is going to be popping in and out more frequently now so got to get the Fleet totally ready! Going to be really decent temps today for sure!

Hey Tom, going to be getting a 300X probably soon. I hope I am not tempted too much by the mCPX BL before that. Getting pretty good reviews seems like.

Would love to have a 130X, but only if they do a V2 and fix all the Issues with the tail, gears and case...

57 SC action Saturday, big sky stuff, not low and slow. I love Snaps. There is some risky stuff at the beginning and in the middle however.... Not too bad I guess for feeling totally out of sync with flying yesterday.


57 Extra 330 SC Cold Flight (3 min 22 sec)

It's muddy up by the fenced entrance to the field and there are still some swampy spots but, it's a lot better than it was the past 2 days.

I flew the 74 for the first time and it is AMAZING! I love it!

You really got the Horse fired up. I think your ready for some rolls and loops. As long as you are quick on the throttle hold you won't do much damage.
