Took 2 helis to Gumley intending to complete the setups on both. Wasted a huge amount of time trying to get the Jive 100 working. There's no PC interface, just count the beeps and move the throttle guesswork. It just wouldn't give the beeps according to the manual, so I just gave up setting the AR. Tried to set the governor and it had some bull about using the best battery you have to get consistent speed. Never heard such sh*t in my life. Gone back to Castle. Not as reliable, but you just plug it into the PC and restore settings from file.
After getting that one working, turned my attention to the new one that now has a Spirit on. The tail seemed very sticky so I started stripping it. Looks like the previous owner doused it in locktite, so I'll have to do a proper job rebuilding it at home.
Got some flights in on the VBar 550. Getting cutouts during tictocs. Will figure it out later.
Still happy though, a good long session on my own sorting out all my stuff.
