Damian, you implying that I can't time tic tocs? Sure sounds like it. LOL! I swear I saw you on the sim the other day, did you not see my tic tocs then?

4 flights today, great fun, lotsa piro stuff, including full speed rudder piro flips in once space, that was nice.

I had another 4 flights this evening. I'm now working on backwards loops. I need to get more entry speed so i have to enter it from a tail slide & at present i'm letting it slow down when level so it becomes more of just a big foward flip. Traking needed no adjusting this time. My tic tocs are moving all over the place & i find it hard to keep them stationary.


Hey Brummeh, good to hear from you. But sorry to hear about your crash.

Sweeeet backwards loops nice mate! They're great fun, more so than forwards ones IMO.

Still liking the carbons?

Flying with some buddies today, one had a brand new yellow/dark blue canopy. The dark blue is like black in flight, as as the back of the trex is mostly black it looks like it's nose in when tail in sometimes (when I wasn't flying it)! Crazy.

Well, I can do medium speed ones too, but fast ones are not possible on 13T and woodies.

Like I said 3/4 speed of the one Speedstick posted with the TP pack.

It's a simple manoeuvre which I'm well past, timing isn't hard for me personally, simple... Not much to go wrong if you have timing of collective and cyclic correct.

There are many manoeuvres I find much, much harder and loads that I can't even do, like I said just for me I find tic tocs "easy" now that I have got used to them.

Hi speedstick,even on 500 you dont use any expo during piro funnels?

Finally,it is good to use it or not? Now I fly w/o expos but my moves aren't soo fluid like those with some expo...

DamianPL, does your Beam have thrust bearings in the grips..Some kits came without them. I cant tell if your grips look any different than mine which do have thrust bearings but I think they look the same.

My grips dont have near as much play as those.
