Aren't they a weird shape though?

Time to Fly AJ's Best!

Got home around 2:30 pm from Dad's surgery. 2.75 hrs late again!! BUT, all went well, they didn't dope him down so much this time and he came out of it faster and sharper. He's at home now with my Sis and doing good, sleeping and drinking lots of water. Lab Report next Friday...


Then the mailbox had what I was looking for! Got the Maiden on my new (used) mCP X!


Was really windy and I tried to hide behind the house but it was pushing me all over the backyard in a 15ft square at first. Had about four striking objects crashes early on. Took on an aluminum patio cover support beam, broke a dogbone. Had spares. Dropped it on the patio concrete once, popped the Swashplate Bearing out. Smacked the side of the house.

I moved over farther and got some good hovering going, close to me at 3ft off the grass. Finally realized I had just been flying around on High Rates! Duh! Flipped it all to low and went and got the HatCam. Captured one launch and drop, right as it hit LVC and that was the end of it. The Batt only had 4.04v when I started and I have no means to charge it yet, no charger lead. It is on the way with the 4 new Batts.

I got about 40 sec. of vid, but not worth posting here. Should have rolled the cam sooner. Missed two minutes of decent Hover practice. Saving it for the Hillbilly thread so Anthony can see it. He's the Heli dude.

What I got to do so far was definitely Fun! I broke it about 3 times and easily fixed it. Takes a pretty good hit and bounces back. Once I got away from the obstacles things got better. Think I'm going to like flying around the yard and at the closer school when I don't like making the trip to JVS.

the gens are about 120g heavier, not that that matter with this motor pulling them around.

heritage remember if it is lacking for power (won't get off the ground) push that white gear on the underside until it fully seats (sorry I don't know the names of these parts).

Yea, I'm sure they fit. It's just they are different from every other 6s 5000mah battery.

well, I'm not prejudiced.

they are perfect for the 89 in terms of capacity and weight. the 72 feels a tad heavier, but still has 3D legs. I'm spoiled by flying the 72 on 4000 mah packs--butterfly floaty, great for calms days. the 5500 is great for wind and copious amounts of throttle use.

Using them in the 87" Extra. Working well.

I kept checking that expecting it to slip but it never did. Guess I got Throttle Hold on in time most of the time.

Excited to get the new Batts in here soon I hope, need to check the tracking on them.
