Did you see the look of terror on his face when it first screamed upward? I am surprised that it really didn't look like it got damaged. I liked the rain of leaves, that was so funny!

Clicky— many thanks for the green flybar paddles! I am setting up a 450 SE with a gear-driven tail and Spartan Quark gyro and will use the paddles for the first flights.

I have managed some airtime lately and so feel I am still in the game. My old maneuvers are getting smoother and I am chipping away at more inverted flying.

managed to get 8 flights in on the 450 with zyx. having a great time at the minute
heli is flying awesome, confidence is high. managed some half decent backwards circuits, which i always found hard on the 450 for some reason. lots of flipping and rolling and piroing. i like to go from side in hover, roll to inverted flip and piro to end up side in, come back across the field rail first, get to centre do a front flip to inverted then climb out till its really high then come straight down nose first ending in nose in hover. love the sound it makes. one thing that has really helped is doing slow piros i feel like i have a lot more control now.

peter— I have started practicing slow piro's after noticing that a number of good fliers do them.

I'm finding that doing slow smooth manuevors is hard as heck and takes a lot more practice.

The airwolf fuse just want to go fast war horse lol!

I got in three packs on my 500pro. The wind was gusting up to 40 and almost took me out. I was practicing stationary flips when a gust hit and it was like I landed and went full negative it bogged that bad.

Nice and sunny day yesterday with little wind. I got disappointed with my 130X - two of them and none flew well - both had tail issues (different kind).

Took Protos (stretched) and all possible batteries charger and... nothing. Something went wrong between receiver and satellite - cable (tried two more), satellite itself (tried orange's satellite on the spot from my Mini Titan) or receiver itself. So, I had to fall back to my 6S Mini Titan...

And - wow - that machine is strong and fast! Tiny touch of collective and it is all over the field. I definitively need for batteries for it. I was even thinking getting another 2221-1630 for my other Mini Titan and pronounce them both 6S! Flying wise didn't do much but tried to do nice moebious loops. some piro flips and some tic/tocs with last set of knackered, old nano tech batteries (that complained quite a lot)..

@Zen - I'm very curious to hear if you're going to find them anyhow different than those you already have!
