E-Flite Blade CX2 hovering nose in

Ok I picked up one of the new e-flite blade cx2 helicopters the one one that comes with a 2.4GHz DSM Radio

Anyways after about 4 flights I was able to fly nose in very easy.

this has to be dollar for the dollar the most easy to fly and fun helicopter I have seen!

nose in hover is pretty easy for this little helicopters as they are very stable to fly
the only thing to get around on nose in hover on these guys is your own head just getting your fingering right
this is when a good sim comes in handy
but nice going
have fun flying it
now take it outside and go flat stick

I fly planes and want to get into scale helicopters so I figured I would start off again with something that was more a toy and fun to learn basic how to control height and speed and turn left and right, move forward and back just get teh hang of doing it with a real moving electric helicopter. so far so good.

practice practice practice.

nose in you keep the heli looking at you and fly it with the nose of the heli looking at you around. all the controls are in reverse.

I'm hooked now I flew a full 8-9 minutes of straight nose in tonight wow I know it does not sound like much because this helicopter once trimmed good will hover all most by itself but not losing control and doing a dumb thumb move for a full 8-9 minutes to me is like a new personal best!
