Last time i flew with Laurence he told me to do them with my Gaui, I tried but it went into a fit which i couldn't pull out of & it went in much to our amusement LMAO.



That was good fun .

Here are some pictures of me and Dan (Tragically) flying on Thursday.

I didn't fly today because the same person was performing extreme 3D at close level. Yesterday as I was about to spool up my V120D2S, his supercharged 450 heli came within 20 ft of me and I got a shock and hastily retreated. Today, he was doing the same thing flying within 30 ft of two young children. He did fly a bit higher than yesterday but the children were moving around. I decided to warn the mother and then left.

His stuff was quite amazing though. He did some pretty amazing 3D chaos and knife edge flight at low level. This is exactly the stuff you see done by top 3D master in videos. But I fear someone will get hurt very seriously if this type of behavior continues. By the way, the site where we flew had signs expressly forbidding the flying of RC helicopters. Therefore there is no chance of getting insurance.

I flew yesterday and both of my helis crashed due to malfunctions. The black Airwolf had an aileron servo go out and the blue one threw the rudder belt, but the rudder belt did not break and looked in good condition. You did the right thing by warning the mother zadaw; helis can be very dangerous especially when there is a malfunction. I did have my Dynam 1200mm Spitfire and the 50mm F22, plus the little Parkzone Mosquito and had fun with them instead.
I am getting the hang of landing these things now I think. Here's a short clip of the Spitfire.

Couple of flights with the 450 this morning, but it felt a bit loose. I just put it down to the wind, but when I got home I noticed one of the flybar links had slipped off the ball!

Flew two packs on my 250 and flew a cheap xheli greatwall heli I got for my son for Christmas. It was such junk that I felt bad and ran out yesterday and got him a mcx2.

Had problems with the 250, gyro wouldn't hold--I forgot to switch it into HH.

And I burned out the bad servo in the 9985 that was making it hard to fly.

I maidened my Mini Titan after installing Tarot FBL head and gyro. This is to make all the heli pilots that can't fly 3D yet feel better.

Looks nice and stable! I presume you had it in F3C mode.

Your headspeed seems a touch low - after about 3 minutes, the boom started to nod up and down.

My dog always retreats to my car when I'm flying, he doesn't care for the heli!

Nice I hope mine well work out for me like that when I get my CX 3X-1000 on My Hausler.
So Im kinda new to allot of this and Just have to ask dose the FBL make it that much easier?
It dont look like you have to put allot of input in to stop forward/side to side movement or am i just not seeing it?

I did not get to fly nether my 120SR or my 450 today because I got home and the new head I ordered for the 450 came in so I spent my time putting that on.

For me it makes it a lot easier. I have a Blueray clone that I had 500 flights on w/flybar. Then I put a Tarot ZYX FBL on it and was able to do a flip for the first time. Thats why I got one for this Mini Titan right away.
I have the gyro set on beginner, thats why it looks so stabile
