The first couple of weekends of 2012 have been rather warm. Maidened the BeastX Logo. It flew better after I switched to smaller tail blades and fiddled with the link geometry and pitch ranges. Fixed tracking and idleups as well.

In other news, the globalhawk showed up, and the bridgesky solo 1500 should be showing up shortly, so I can start building my FPV rig.

Not much on the rc front in 2011 for me due to getting my PPL ASEL. 2012 will be a fun foray into FPV and UAV stuff. Looking for an excuse to play with Kalman filters.

Finally got around to assembling the vbar head for the Logo last night. Installed it and the beastx today and did a quick test hop. Also fiddled with the collective and cyclic ranges on the 450.

The weather looks to be unseasonably warm tomorrow, so I'm thinking I'll fly both of them.
