It was quite windy and the Protos handles wind a lot worse than my T-Rex 500. Almost crashed it badly. I went down completely vertical with high speed and wanted to transition into fast forward flight when a wind gust caught the heli and pushed it towards the ground. With full collective and lots of elevator I was able to recover really close to the ground. The telemtry showed a current spike of around 90 amps. It was really close and I was quite shaken after barely avoiding the total destruction of the heli! 😱

good flights, starting to do some inverted flying and more flips and rolls with the heli. Still getting to know each other.

The weather was great, but I couldn't use my regular flying spot. Didn't care much for the alternative spot at that field: not enough space for my taste. Flying there felt awkward so I left it at one flight.

With fully loaded packa I brought flighttime up to 7min without stressing the packs. Really nice.

With the warmer weather I discharged the packa further, gaining some flight time. I addes a little bit of headspeed to get 1800, 2200 and 2450. I fly at 2200 most of the time.

Getting more and more used to the model. First flips and rolls with the protos.

Finally not so cold any more. Since I have not figured out what the problem is with the 500 I gave the T-Rex a spin.

The first flight was ok, some piruettes and larger circles. At the end of the second flight the motor suddenly shut down for a second. Luckily the heli only lost some altitude and spooled up again in the air. I landed immediately and no damage was done. But now I have to figure out what happened. Good thing the Brain2 has logging capabilities. That may help.

First spool up of my new Protos 500! It was so nice. Bought the heli used in July and rebuilt it completely. Took a long time and now I spooled it up for the first time. Just great, the heli is so quiet and it lifts off with so little headspeed. I spooled it up, lifted off, did some hovering a meter off the ground and that was it. Everything went smooth. Now I will check all the screws and the FBL Logfiles.

It is such a great feeling, when the skids of a new heli leave the ground for the first time 😃

still pretty cold. Tried the transmitter glove for the first time and hated the feeling. It felt like my movements were restricted and I wouldn't be able to control the model. I hope that I can get used to it. With the cold weather I really loose sensitivity in the fingers fast.
