Wow pretty low flying!

Dan sounds about right for a Scorpion and 13T maybe slightly high, I get 4 mins myself but that's about 1,300-1,400mah back in a 2200mah pack. Maybe it's because the Mini T has a larger disk rotor?

It was real low! It was doing some sweet "remote circle's" The sound was crazy! WHAP WHAP WHAP!! Must be warming up for the Heli day's event in the next few week's.

Hmm, think your probably right. May drop a tooth and see. Chucked the woodies back on for my evening flight too just to see if that helps. Don't need the PUNCH really for hurricane practise.
Hurricanes are driving me NUTS! Got them perfect on the sim, but real one's are proving ALOT more difficult and nerve racking. Never had so many near crashes! Some of them have been that close that in that split second, i had pretty much accepted that it was going in! Only to somehow save it.

Advanced fliers on this thread exert a welcome pressure to push the personal envelope. This morning I did my first flips and loops without the customary crash. Perfect conditions: clear sky, no clouds, great light! Small bit of wind. The Blade CP Pro was beautiful hanging upside down for a few seconds before flipping upright or completing a loop. Had a visit from my old friend the shakes and this time set it down to let the nervous system reset instead of pushing on and crashing.

flew some yesterday. I got my slow piros to hold in one place (much better than a week ago even). I ended up with the thermo shut down happening 3 times though. Probably has something to do with the 100+ F temp outside here during the day?

Congrats zen@lanset.com.

Yep i flew today, i sorted out my tail issue when inverted, it was my bloody thumb!!. Done some more inverted circles trying do get them smooth. Visibility was terrible, even with a glow in the dark canopy. The grey clouds were just too much so after 3 packs i called it a day. Piro circles were messy today.

HAHA... Those are just packs that came free with this combo! Not going to use it for this... I have 4 6s chargers and will be using 30C 6s 2700 mAh packs

Thanks

And to think if you STILL had your Logo 10 you probably could've used 2 of those 6s 2700 30c in a 12s set up Baaaalissstic!!!!!

Speed Stickó I'm sure we can all relate, although the picture doesn't do anything to help those who are struggling to limit heli inventories! (I occasionally think of a T-600...)

I sold a kidney to buy my Logo



Ok it was a motorbike. 30 size leccy = more efficient & powerfull on a 6s set up than a 50 size.
