My first indoor flip with Blade 130 X

Just wanted to see if I could do it. Plan on keeping it outside from now on

how do you do it without losing so much hight? i have to take mine up too 50 foot or so to do a loop and the thing seems to lose so much height, i find these helis dont have much power with the reverse throttle in idle up mode. any tips?

Nice! I see a distinct lack of vases tho, how many have you knocked over so far?

You do? I haven't done it for real yet, but i wasn't losing height on the sim I'll have to verify that before i attempt it then.

Make sure the pitch is symmetrical, zero pitch in mid stick. Heli should have the same climb out inverted as it does sunny side up. Check the gears are not binding if you have a lack of power. Mine will happily flip on the spot, or tic toc, if yours wont then there is something wrong.
