Blade 130 S Review (cont.)

Well, after 21 packs on my new Blade 130s, I have it dialed in and enough stick-time to say, this model rocks! I just came in from a sport-flying session with 10mph gusty wind, and this little model's tail held as well as my 450. My flight times are excellent; a 5min 20 sec pack of sport flying comes down near storage charge.

Here's my set-up

Pitch Curve: 0,25,50,75,100
Idle-up Throttle Curve: 100,20,80,80,100
DR/Expo: Aileron/Elevator, 75,40, Rudder, 100,-5
Tail Gain "I" 85

Lipo: 520mAh Gen Ace 30c
Lynx, solid CF Main Shaft
Micro-Heli, CNC aluminum blade grips
TX: Spektrum DX7s

Note 1: to increase visibility I've applied Red Day-Glo monokote trim tape to the canopy, landing skid pipes, tail boom and vertical stabilizer.

Note 2: To better the fitment of the canopy with the larger lipo, and to improve the model's CG, I heated the shaft of a small screwdriver and elongated the canopy grommet mounting holes 3mm towards the aft.

As I get more time on the model I'll be sure to provide additional updates...
