I LOVE the lightning, havenít seen a good thunderstorm for ages, miss them. Love the lightning show.

So YES I will take it lightning and all.

One day I was standing by the open front door looking out the screen door. Two of the cats were beside me looking out. Suddenly there was this enormous thunder clap, I never saw two cats run so fast for the back bedroom. I still have to chuckle when I think about it.

I like the sound of rain on the roof at night, distant thunder and distant lightning flashes. BUT, you don't want the big lightning strikes. If you are outside, and hear thunder, you should go inside fast. I've been knocked out twice by lightning strikes.

We had two shark attacks at the beach yesterday. That's why we're known as "The Shark bite capital of America.

Yes that is my grandsonís hearse. He loves it. The graveyard is a few doors down the street from where they l8ve. Both my parents, my one brother and my in-laws are buried there.

He likes the hearse to haul his and my son in-lawís trail bikes to various competitions.

Sorry I didn't check in with some more info on the K110, which has the same basic setup. Been very busy lately at work, and also hot temps, making it even more discouraging to go outside after dinner...

Since I had two of the helis, I'm now flying the other new one. Well, actually trying to trim it. It wants to go backwards and hard left aileron, I've tried to trim it but it isn't correcting itself as it should. One small step at a time.

With the sticks centered, is the swash plate more or less level? Just checking with blades not spinning and the heli sitting on the ground.

One of the videos I linked did show that in some cases it might be needed to adjust the links between the servos and the swash plate. Or maybe it just needs to be calibrated, so the auto leveling knows when the copter is in level attitude.

Yes, the swash plate is perfectly level. I flew it late yesterday and as soon as the collective engages, it takes off and things level out. How are you get it into auto leveling?
