You know you're finally getting the hang of this when...

I picked up a miniCP on sale for my younger brother's xmas present over the weekend and it showed up this morning.

I opened her up, put the battery on my charger, punched in the stock settings on my TX and took her out back for a test flight. A tweak to the gyro setting and the throttle curves and then a few flips front and back, some rolls, a few fast circuits and it's got my OK to be gifted.

Then about 10 minutes later while I was finishing my coffee it struck me that just a year ago I was barely able to hover my D02S around my backyard and was constantly crashing when doing circles. It seems so strange that now it's flip flip, roll roll, figure 8, stall turn, OK, good enough now time for some coffee. I guess progress really sneaks up on you

That's good to hear. I just got a micro CP recently. Haven't even tried to flip it yet (Although I did spool up while holding it upside down and landed on the ceiling after a short inverted flight) Hopefully by spring I'll be doing flips and rolls.
