Removed the gy520 and hs65mgs yesterday and dropped in the beastx and hs5065mgs today. Setup was pretty straightforward and a test hop looked good. Looking forward to a proper outdoor flight.

I sold my 500ESP to fund a hotliner, but it's proving difficult to find one in the configuration I want. In the meantime, I'm converting the 450 to flybarless:

* beastx
* 3 HS-5065MGs for the swash
* R6203SBE sbus receiver
* align fbl head bits

If this goes well, the Logo might get similar treatment.

The 61mm tails on the 450 got chewed up somehow; guess I need to revert to the 59mm ones.

Finally flew the Logo this morning. Gyro gain can probably come down a bit now that the tails are a bigger, but otherwise, it was good. No boom rotation, no loose belt. A bit chilly, there was still some frost on the field.

I took about a year off of rc to get my PPL. My checkride was last week, so I did a bit of rc flying over the weekend for the first time in a while.

Flew the 450 and 500 a bit. 450's tail blades got dinged up somehow. Couldn't fly the Logo as the ESC wouldn't arm (as it turns out, because it wasn't plugged in to the rx... duh). Looking forward to a do-over.

Moved this past spring, so the rc workshop got a bit of an upgrade.
