From no Heli to hover/forward flight in 12 flights LOGO 10

I have never flown Helis at all; never felt like they have something to offer.
Only airplanes from 5oz. Foamy to 17lbs. Piper Cub and 150mph hollow molded Sunracer (pylon racer) since I was 10 years old.
I got sort of tired of flying, burned out. But this Heli Stuff is really very fun, finally new challenge.

My LOGO is incredibly stable machine, with TP4000 8S2P I get 16 minutes of flying. Always 2 flights per charge.

I have so far 12 flights and one light crash, fortunately only broken frame and bent main shaft. Silly me after 10 minutes of hovering I wanted to hover nose in, OK not recommended.
I have noticed one thing; fly max 10 minutes but every single day. With Heli itís so easy, small piece of grass and you got your private heaven.

Flight 1-3
Hovering for 10 minutes, moving carefully from right to left and back/forward.

Flight 4-6
Very slow number eights 3-4 feet above the ground, first 360 circle.

Flight 7
Finally got Heli higher than 10í, very scary. First climb out with 360 turn, even more scary.

Flight 8-12
Big figure eights, gradually getting higher and higher. Huge 360 circles, power pirouettes.
Slowly building confidence

My set up:
Logo 10 Carbon w/3D canopy
Futaba S9254
Hitec Fusion 9
TP4000 8S2P
Neu 1910/1.5Y
Phoenix 45HV
Futaba GY401
555mm CF MAH

Nice report, nice heli.
You are progressing a lot faster than I have, but I am a slow learner .

A great and non destructive addiction (except maybe to the checkbook).

thats a great heli...nice setup and everything. Just try not to crash it, because what goes up will come down..just depends on when it comes down
