Got my adapter made
Charging up some batteries for tomorrow

Cool thing is it didn't cost me 1 cent to make

Gronimod is done with their G500
But it hasn't been put on their site yet.
But because I am special, a buddy of mine (one of the guys who actually developed it) emailed me the file. So now I have it and no one else

Another thing is that Fabian Kloss developed a Blade 130X and 550X for RF as well

Went to an indoor fly in today, and decided to see what the mCP X V2 could do... so I took the tip of reducing collective to 85% max and having a flat 100% throttle curve. I flipped it and wow... the tail held fine! I was surprised at how well it flew! A fully stock (although it may be extended tail boom, not sure) mCP X V2 and it flew pretty nice! I was able to do some pretty decent 3D with it! I don't know why everyone hates it... it seems fine! Of course it was not mine, but I ended up flying 18 batteries through it before running out of batteries...

So, yes, the mCP X V2 CAN do 3D... I also did some hurricanes with it, although man these things get going fast so I only did it a few times.

That's what I was doing for like 3 hours this afternoon...

I was doing some inverted, waiting for my dad to take a picture of my BL while inverted... then the worst thing happened: The transmitter started telling me that the battery was low!!!! I figured, "well I got a minute while dad takes a pic"

Well, his phone was out of memory so he had to delete something... when he did though, it still said it was out of memory... so he sat there, trying to fix it, all the while the transmitter was sitting there beeping like a truck driver!

Finally he got enough space, and he was just about to take the picture, literally his finger was right over the button waiting for the right moment, then the TX gave up, letting go of the helicopter, letting it smash into the ground, inverted... *facepalm*

Luckily no damage suffered... other than my pride.

Getting ready to cut out my Goblin Paper Canopy for my BL

the tail boom came out mid flight in my BL... unplugged itself from the mian board, and the heli went spinning into the ground... no damage. The reason it came out was apparently that the boom was ALREADY split and apparently because loose in the boom block coming out mid flight.

Did my first complete and failure-less flips and inverted today right after school! Did the first one or two at 50% power (still a LOT) and then increased to 60% (even more powerful)

Only failure I had was trying to cut the grass inverted and a bit of wind drove it right into the ground... *facepalm*

Luckily no harm done and it lived to flip some more. I will hopefully get some videos when my dad gets done working...
