A good day flying my Fireball at my Uncle's House.

Flew two good flights on my 180. Last flight, I blew out the tail and it fell hard on the ground. Luckily, no damage and I finished that flight. However, the E7SE wasn't so lucky... For months now, I've been trying to get the tail adjusted right but every time I get something worked out or close, something else would pop up. I was switching through my banks on the Vbar to see what setting seemed better, but when I lightly used the tail and flipped it inverted, the tail blew out and it was uncontrollable. I hit throttle hold and was able to push the heli away from me and lay it as flat as I could get it. The damage... Canopy is shot, one main blade, and about $100 in parts. Not so bad. However, my brand new Glaciers were ejected into the canopy, compromising the packs. If you felt the ground shake that day, it was me. I looked at the V-Log to see that my tail sensor has completely failed and currently isn't working. So that was a costly $550 crash. And that doesn't include the Vbar. Not a fun day...

It was an ok flight. Still have to replace the ESC and work on the tail. I did a lot of hard(ish) stops close to the ground and watched the young corn plants blow from the rotor wash.

Really good flight on the 180. I practiced some funnels and hurricanes and started practicing piro hurricanes.

The E7SE, however, was the first real flight since the vibration problems. It wasn't a great flight as I think I was just rusty. However, at the 5 minute mark, I was inverted in forward flight climbing when my ESC shut down. I immediately flipped the heli over and killed the head speed to the point where I could count the RPM of the blades! Luckily, I was able to regain enough head speed to flair it at the end and land it safely without even a bounce on the ground. I was very lucky and will look at the logs to see why it shut down.

Great flight. I did some more 3D and made some faster hurricanes. I also did a small over speed and a small auto from around 50' up. Awesome!

Practiced some tic tocs and some speed passes on the 180. The E7SE, I flew it for the first time this year and since the crash at HOD. I still need work done on the tail but it did great for what I did to it today.
