Short video of my IPS heli flying in wind.

A few days ago I made this video of my IPS helicopter flying in a breeze. It was the sixth flight that day. In the end the rotor head came lose from the mast and I lost control. No problem. Took less than five minutes to fix. The wind is really messing with the heli, causing it to rise and drop like a rollercoaster, and making the tail hunt a lot. When it's calm it's a eally smooth flying heli. I'm loving it. I get up to 14 minute flights with it.

Here's the video.

That's a good one . 122g is light weight. Mine suffered more 'pitch up' even at 2300 rpm . What is your hover rpm?

3sTP480 mAh (genII 6A) weigh in at 32g.

The rpm at hover is ~2400 I think.
