Flew the 550 at first. After a few flights I lost drive down low and the head speed bled off. Put it down in the long grass with no HS. Looks like the OWB completely let go after all the tictocs. Skids and blades bust, the rest looks OK.

The 700 is flying nicely, had a good chat to AK again, picking up a few tips and confidence flying the thing.
Duncan's dad, Wayne, come over as well and told me the 700 has a buzz. What a nice guy. We had our first conversation for about 15 minutes and he suggested a couple of things I could do, as the buzz will damage the heli and something will break.

One of the younger members was throwing a 700 around like he's been flying his whole life, a bit depressing really, although I didn't actually enjoy his style. Flew the 700 a couple more times, but didn't want to push it, so went home in a good mood. Not a bad weekend.
