Red, White, and faint blue

Ground a flat in the tail drive shaft. Much stiffer now, but if the tail ever jams it's going to grind up the shaft nicely. If we were Lite Machine, would swap this 1/16" shaft for a 3/32".

Also have some spinning rotor shots with the lighting. Contrary to the Canon's view, the blue LED seems 2 B fading. Every blue LED we've used has faded very quickly.

So 1 battery charge seems to be the psychological limit when flying every night, after which we start getting sloppy. With the 4000mAh broken in, it's giving 31 min of flying with the LEDs. Expanding the envelope of high altitude hovers, nose-in takeoffs, and nose-in controlled crashes. Starting to try nose-in
sideways operations. Nose-in without any wind is starting to feel more natural.

31 min of flying
No wind.
