When you gave me the heads up about AMainHobbies prices the Sport was $75 cheaper than Helidirect and $35 cheaper than ReadyHeli That's huge!

Sh*te! Crashed it! Almost looks like the Jesus bolt got tired and gave out during a rapid pitch change.

Maybe I should enlarge the battery cave (the new li-po's I bought for it don't fit) in my high-wing trainer plank for tomorrow, since I don't have another 220 mm fly bar....

P.S.: It is now Sunday, nearly noon, and the Trex 450 SE is back in flying condition. Great light today. I am waiting for a contractor to start some procedures in this building so I can head out to a flying area.

Yep i flew again today, & i flew my only flyable heli.....My Airwolf. It hardly gets flown because of our weather so this weekend it's had a good airing. It did feel weird going to my field with just my Airwolf. It was great fun.

I've made personal record: I've brought 4 of helicopters to the field... on my back - riding bicycle to there...

Flew all of them... Nice weather/blue skies with little wind (poor 4g6 suffered the most - still flew and even attempted two loops but the tail is just not up to the task on such wind. Yesterday without wind it was very nice...)

Anyway - flew 3 minutes straight with my protos inverted figures of 8. Need to do it more often. Aside of it found that I flew far more aggressive than last Sunday O: ) - even attempting moves I've seen P4ddy was doing! (thanks ) Even flips nose in...

Interesting paint scheme on the canopy. The yellow stripe is a good thing.

Clicky— I have carried one helicopter in a daypack while riding a bicycle; how did you manage four? That would be a good picture for all heli-carrying bretheren to see.

Was at the field yesterday and Mike had his scale 500 align in the air. Nice and smooth.
