Anyone planing on flying today? I have my Easystar ready, but I would need some help. I don't want to crash it again 5 seconds after launch (or less).

Finally...


I was at the field today. For the first time ever I flew my Champ purely FPV. It went better than expected: no crash or landing in a tree. It was a great experience.
Since I didn't want to stretch my luck, my Easystar stayed on the ground. I hope to fly it soon. But right now, I am just happy with today's lunch break.

Nice job Michael!!! I guess you were there alone today. Looks like we might have some rain tomorrow?

Thanks. Yes, I was the only one, thatīs why I didn't dare to fly the Easystar.
I hope the weather will be fine on the weekend. I can't wait to fly some more FPV. It's addictive.

Wow between end of the year closeouts and meaningless training requirements I haven't got to fly all week... Maybe the rain will hold off tomorrow...

I managed 6 flights on my new nano cpx. I must have 30 flights on it in two days. It's no 130x but its way better than an mcpx. It takes Blade mcx 150mah bats which I already had 4 of that I used for an FPV camera/tx and it came with two bats. It came with the crappy battery charger that takes AA batteries but the regular mcpx charger works a treat for charging 4 bats at a time.

I've had my 130x since the day it hit the store back in early July and I probably have less than 15 flights on it. I bought new tail blades and another tail gear for it yesterday so it should be back in the air tonight. I actually went to Hobby Town to get the news blades and gear and Greg had to show me how he could flip the nano in his crowded store and I impulse bought it.

Ok I pay attention well I thought that was your mcpx I didn't realize it was new.. They come out so fast now it's hard to keep up. Looks like it flew great for being so small!

Hey Bob - I can't get rid of tail vibe problems on my 130. What are the details of that bearing mod you did to yours. I'm about ready to sell mine and get the Blade 300.
