since I see led lights been talked about recently thought I'd show my hi vis Hal 2.0 off
all pics taken with battery under 3.80 v and at 1% throttle (enough to light bulb but not engage motor)
so goes a bit brighter when going

so instead of that shrink wrap for the boom of my k110 I have been using that black cloth electrical tape ,it's really good as it molds to boom and stick well ,not any heavier than shrink (0.2-0.3 g)

but came across some orange braided cable stuff feels kinds sturdy and again under 0.3 g .

looks a bit like fishnets ... mmm kinky boom

adds a bit more weight as forgot about the shrink at either end to keep it on ... ahh I'll give it a whirl

I'd forgotten the difference a new fresh set of blades make ... ahh what a lovely ripping sound

Any excuse for a photo opportunity ohh and the new canopy won't need cutting as stock weighs 2.2g
just waiting on those new tail blades

started some inverted practice (v977) (3 min 5 sec)

simultaneously love and hate those hedges !
but the old 977 still showing its ability to just keep going
and when I say inverted practice I mean trying to get comfortable with being inverted is a better description
