Installed the new Spartan VX1n V4 firmware after work. A few changes to the menu layout and the default parameters but looking forward to testing it out tomorrow.

Just some nice figure 8s and circuits with Rich's 300X. Very therapeutic :-)

Fitted the 300x with its new motor and YEP 40A ESC before I went to the indoor meet and wow they have transformed the heli. Very stable headspeeds on throttle curves and they have brought the "pitch" alive. At the end of the 4th flight the heli started producing snow! I thought I had finally lost the plot. This turned out to be the discharge leads rubbing on the main gear and wearing the main gear down. New maingear and the leads need shortening. Just the Align DS430M servo's to install and it will be all finished...

A fun evening at the indoor with the 300. Had 5 flights just floating about and getting used to flying indoors. I need to work on the mechanical setup as the skids were still broken and this made the VX1e tricky to setup. The tracking is out and I need to look at the tail but still had a great evening.

Tony managed a 4 min flight too and kept it in the air which is a bonus! Just kidding he flew it like a pro and it gave me the chance to snap a few pictures (see above).

Upgrade time for the 300 now!

With my CFX currently in the 'modification' stage and out of action Rich was kind enough to let me fly his Blade 300 X. I took it easy this time and enjoyed a slightly smoother flight with some flips and rolls, a few pirouettes moving it around and a nice low inverted hover photo op.

Picked up my Lynx motor, dampers and a few other smaller upgrades and managed to get the motor dry fitted to the frame. Quite a bit of work needed as the motor mount holes needed filing inwards, some washers placed under the motor bolts as the screws are too long and the bottom carbon plate needed cutting right back to allow for the deeper profile.

Just waiting on the new mainshaft bearings as it looks like I may need to file the front skid mounts down because the motor may foul them. Hopefully it's a worthwhile mod.

Had a great night at the indoor meet with the 300x. I have found my indoor heli at last! It feels great with a VX1e on board. Had a few setup flights then tried some slow flying and then decided to flip it over... Over it went but moved in to the light and I lost it for a split second, over corrected, flipped it back over and BANG! In it went. Still an absolutely great evening with great company and some nice flying/crashing by the others.

One indoor flight and a blade strike ejected the lead weight from the blade. Maybe should have waited till the hall was clearer so I had more room to operate.

Still I had fun and a video to follow :-)

A great night at the indoor meet. Got to fly the 180 with K-Bar around and adjusted some settings to get it flying better as it was a touch soft on the collective. Forza had a flight and the video is attached. Also managed 3 gentle hovers with the Chase after setting up the Vortex E-Gov. It just works and I'm very impressed.
