Superb day at MK. Arrived early and got loads of FS and SM flights in before anyone arrived. Then had a decent afternoon of practicing bits and playing around. Finished with some fun/risky autos. Home for F1 and an adult beverage, another awesome day done.

Started off OK, occasional drizzle but generally flyable. After 12 it just got a little too windy, too cold and the visibility got worse, so I called it a day. I'm trying a slightly higher headspeed on the advice of Phil, we'll see if it pans out.

Decent weather, lots of flying, some Duncan and home for a cider and F1. Just the best way to spend a day.

First few flights were horrible, absolutely no connection with the heli until I realised I'd changed the mainrotor optimisation yesterday. Changed that back to it's previous value and the feel I wanted was back, along with the loss of pitch during full aileron.
After a few flights of changing optim, expo, paddle sim, etc. AK gave me some help and we pinned it down to the cyclic ring value being too low. Moved that up to about 75 and I had the feel around centre i wanted, along with a working pitch range. The cyclic feels very much like the Vortex I had a few years ago, and the heli feels like it should now.
The rest of the day was a blast, couldn't do anything wrong, even had a chat to Duncan and Wayne.

Windy, cloudy and cold. Lots of auto practice, until I ran out of HS doing an auto loop. Bailed out, but wasn't going to make it so went back into TH and let it go in. Broke a blade and dented the boom, but the rest looks OK. Will service it tonight, ready for tomorrow.
