At least you don't get bothered by insects.

The weather is getting nice and warm here down in Melbourne Spring is in the air & so are my helis.

Charging up my little fleet for some flying tomorrow.

Hope you guys get to do the same this weekend!!

No flying today unless I take out my B400R. The remnants of Gordon have been dripping on me all day long. It looks like it's not going to move much the next few days.

Since I was bored a made up a fictional Trex 1000E DFC on the simulator. It flies really well. 1050mm main blades.

Had a nice flying day. Tried to maiden my 3d printed Corsair but failed because of the main gear housing breaking down - no damage to the plane though.
Went on with flying my Devil 420 then. My family was with me wich is why I got some flying pictures for a change:

Nice to put a face on a fellow pilot .

Those flight photos are stunning, and it looks like a peaceful environment for heli flying.

Congrats on that beautiful bird, just great .

I officially have a "work horse". I realize it is not as nice to see or as interesting for most. My more popular birds like the Oxy 3 TE, Oxy 2 FE and Fireball are still flying but not as much as this guy, Blade 230s V2. I'm at that stage where I am "SIMING" alot and trying to push myself further and that is where the 230S V2 comes in handy. It takes away the fear factor of crashing a 1000$ (in Canadian currency) heli, yup; that's what building an Oxy 3 or a Fireball costs up here after taxes and shipping plus custom costs have been implemented .

So here is today's flight with the 230s V2.
Blade 230S V2 flight (6 min 44 sec)


An Oxy 2 flight from today as well with ending comments ...
Lynx Oxy 2 flight (5 min 35 sec)

Theomse - I really like the bluesy green theme on your 420. Makes it stand out. Nice plane too - although I have never flown a rc plane it does interest me sometime down the track.

SpekBo - Good flying with your 230s V2. I've still got the v1 and love it. Its my main practice go to heli.

I took out the fleet today. Only heli missing was my little v977 which i hardly fly these days. Had some great weather here. Got my wife to take a few portrait shot of me and the D420

Really love the D420. Such a fun build an absolute pleasure to fly.

Maybe we should start a thread where we pose with our most favorite heli's. What do you guys say ??

Cheers

got some flights on the trex 550 today, beat the rain by about 10min.
it's a nice change from the smaller 450.
kinda funny though, the servos in the 550 are fairly fast and strong, and i forgot the rates were turned up a bit in the FBL. knocking the elevator around stood the heli up on it's nose.
