My Current Hangar
BEWARE! THIS WILL BE A WALL OF TEXT. I'm relatively new to the hobby. I started flying with my paramotor friends near the end of August. I know most won't care, but I wanted to list what I have and what I think about each of these from a beginners perspective. Hangar(updated as I get more):
Blade Nano CPX
T28 Trojan Micro
UMX Carbon Cub
This is a great glider and what I mainly learned to fly on. I get really nervous when it comes to landing it because it is so large and it lands on its belly, so the first couple of times my "instuctor"/friend helped me land. I love flying this but its very large and hard to lug around when I have all my ppg gear with me also. Since the average wind speed here is 20ish mph we have had a lot of time to fly these here.
This is my inside bird when the wife isn't home. It's super tiny and really easy to fly. I learned most of my orientation stuff on this, but the only problem is that the arms and motors are a bit fragile and tend to break more often than I would like. I bought the 2 pack from a website so I have a lot of extra parts. Anyone can fly this machine
Blade Nano CPX:
This has been a great introduction to helicopters for me. I had flown my ladybird enough not to be intimidated by this. I am still in hovering/forward flight with this heli and I practice when time permits. The best part about this heli is that it is INDESTRUCTABLE! So far I have run this thing into many many walls and trees around home and only had to replace the landing gear. Im not in a hurry to be flippin and trickin so we will see how it holds up during that in a couple months.
Great for inside. My wife even flies it if we go to the gym down the street.
T28 Trojan Micro
I loved playing with this little plane. It uses the same batteries as the nano cpx so I had a few of them already. I practiced my touch and go's the most on this plane. One morning while I was waiting for batteries to charge on it, I left it in the back of my jeep and the door automatically closed on the nose of the plane and almost destroyed it completely. I taped/glued it back together and it is now my crash plane :P.
Easy build and fun with lights. Im not very good at flying it yet and it goes into the ground a lot. I have to work on it a bit more to get it in decent flying condition.
I just got this and I have only done one flight on it. So far it handles ok in the wind, but it also makes me nervous so I landed it until better conditions come around.
