Been flying my TREX250, she flies very nice, got like 6 paks in yesterday between breaks working on my car. Last night I installed my new align 70a ESC into my EXI500 plastic, this mornings test flight went great I have a little work to do on the tail but this bird is finally beginning to fly nice.

Nice flying Devin, I don't think I have ever seen you fly straight and level

Man, this fog and wind isn't going away so I flew a couple of packs at the nearby park where I used to go every morning with the Blade CP Pro. Tons of kids today and they came at me like a horde during the first battery. I got them and their parents lined up behind me for the second flight and did a basic demo series with few aerobatics because I know from experience that if I try to push it when my peripheral vision is scanning for kids and dogs I will dump it. The kids enjoyed it and everyone thanked me. I stopped because there is too much action on a Sunday to concentrate just on flying.

p4ddy— I was just there earlier today. Of course the wind kicked up by the time I got a helicopter ready to fly but I did a little practice. Poor Tom crashed his MT 325 and his Protos 500, though he was looking very good while they were in the air.

Here is the place we fly from at the Marina:

Wish I could be there.

P.S.: yesterday I turned up my throttle curve slightly (from 88% to 90% at mid-stick & 95% to 97% at the ends) and the helicopter became easier to hold during flips and inverted hovers. Increased battery consumption is nil but the improvement in flight control is noticeable.

Hmmmm, no flying....too hot?

I am out of town, I left on Tuesday but was able to get some stick time in my 450 Pro and my TREX250. That 250 flies GREAT! to quote a certian tiger Tried to set the tail on my EXI500 plastic but the gyro wags bad and I cannot get it worked out, when I get home tomorrow night I will reduce the mechanical gain by moving the ball in one notch on the servo arm...if that don't work I will swap gyros.

Looking forward to getting home tomorrow night, should be home before sunset so I expect to fly...which will likely make my wife made she things I have an addiction. probably right

Rilly Rilly good day today, for the past mounth mabe a little more I have been putting my first heli together EXI 450, , putting it together setting it up balansing it and every thing ealse wasnt easy at all, the only help I had was this form now when i had a question i did get answers alot were diffrent from others witch made it a challange but they were answers and they did help so I thank you for that.
I spune the EXI 450 up and there was no vibation at all , perfect took it up at a huver gyro worked great the trotal curve was a little of but like a lot of you said that the throtal curve and pitch curve is like a personal thing you set it to your standerds but over all it went up and flew great, im a beginner so there wasnt any thing great but just to be able to get it up for a 10 minet fly mabe a little less and then get it down in one pice is a great ending, thanks,

Jim. P.S. ill get a video made up.

It was really windy the past 2 days at Berkeley Marina around noon time, 16+ mph wind gust to 22+.

I tried to do some lunch hour flying and was not able to get the BeastX initialized when the heli is upright, I had to lay the bird on the side instead.
