Had awesome flight on 1st and 2nd batteries, 3rd one thought i'd try auto's.. 5th attempt came in a bit too hard and snapped the landing gear..gutted, first 'crash' on my X5.

Just some steady flight as it was a hassle in the wind, noticed blades weren't tracking properly either, eventually gave it some stick doing some really fast and high stall turns...even my missus came to watch...

Gaui - still a bit petrified of this thing...but idled up and flew some really nice controlled stall turns with pirouettes in the turns and very level passes, practiced some loops, tight ones and big arcing ones,2 static flips and finished off with about a 30sec inverted nose in hover..over the moon with this Heli...smiling like a little kid.

took Trex 450 for some orientation flights/hovering, rest of batteries were stall turns, loops, rolls and inverted flight practice with a little backwards flying...super happy but ended up nose diving the heli from about 30m, not sure what happened, i was half way through a loop and the heli just stopped there pointed nose up vertically for about 3 seconds then turned itself and nose dived into the ground, definately heard a loss of power. amazingly only the canopy, x1 blade and possibly x1 cyclic servo gear was damaged.. oh and the battery was properly caput!

Gaui went up next, just did some stall turns and big loops...time to get more batteries

Recently acquired Trex 450 Pro, set the v-bar up and went for a flight, very twitchy compared to my Blade 450, but what a massive difference. very happy

Then as the rain came, decided to grow a pair and took the Gaui X5 up for it's maiden flight. Was bricking it at first but after 1min did some circuits on it, why did i not fly this earlier..what an awesome machine.
