Here. Still testing. Bad weather nationwide and the holidays have slowed things down.

Probably not better, but definately fewer "figure 9s."

For those of us with orientation difficulties, the come home feature is a must.

Since I went to a high quality large helicopter, G4 E720, I flew all last season without a singe problem or crash. I got it flying as soon as the SK540 was available. By the best 3D helicopter and gyro I have ever flown.

I crashed twice last year and the self-leveling feature of the 720 saved more than a dozen crashes. One of the crashes was a broken belt and I didn't have the presence of mind to flick the switch for self leveling. The self-leveling feature gives me the safety to try things I would never do and therefore I've progressed nicely.
I'm looking forward to the spring and flying again. Too cold on my hands now.
In the meantime, I'm simming with FSOne and building my skills.

To understand that you test GPS SK and if so, a few impressions, if possible.
