Trex 250 Maiden flight - went well. Then second flight.


Did my maiden flight with my 250SE today. First flight went well. The $12 gyro holds pretty freaking well and no wag at all. Had power set to 55% in normal mode then upped it to about 75%. When it was at 55% and I hit IU the tail moved, the IU power was 100%! That was when I upped the Normal mode's power. Second flight went pretty well, but I lost visibility because the woods were exactly the same color as my heli. Lost it, luckily I hit T-Hold and minimal damage: Only broke the makeshift training gear. (which, it technically didn't break, just the things holding it to the heli) Will have a video late.

Happy Flying,

Keith
