Had a stonking session at EMHC with the added bonus of a club BBQ. Just what I needed to get out of the winter blues! Nothing fantastic but enjoyed it all the same.

Flew the new NEO update yesterday and the SAB was flying like a bag of s@>t. Plugged it back into the software this morning and had a quick test and flying much better again today.

I was getting tail whipping occassionally and slightly odd feel on the cyclics yesterday. Was already looking at how to revert back to the previous version but will see how it goes from here on out.

Excellent session with a good turn out. Maidened the 550 I set up for a new pilot. My first Vcontrol setup :-)

Great session today. Had a good few flights on the Comp and have a better feel for the heli so tried the 2160 HS today. Also got a flight on Pete's 3 bladed KSE. A very nice, smooth heli.

3 flights at the Charmouth Funfly. Very compact field but it served to keep the flying closer in. Had a great time although it was all a bit ominous on arrival.

Lots of wind and dark skies this morning which cleared up as we were all leaving.

Got to try Rich's Logo 700 again with the Cyclone blades and got a much better feel to it over the VTX. Just glides though the sky.

Tried a few things and got the heli back in one piece. A rather lame Piro globe that didn't get all the way around (but beyond my skill level anyway), Aileron Poledancer, Woo-Hoos and the usual suspects.

Loving it more and more. Sticking with 1960 (should be 1950 but Mikado know best and it keeps changing to 1960).

Off the cuff I had a good few goes at a 'Serpent' as well as some Piroloops and Piroflip reversals. For a first attempt and no sim practice I'm chuffed with the results and the extra stability/ confidence that has come with flying the SAB on the lower HS.

Looking forward to seeing what I can come up with next 👍👍

Put the Gens Ace packs back into action today and they held up great so I'm back to 3 flights a session again 😀

Flew on the lower 1950 & 1900 HS this afternoon and despite the winds the SAB performed amazingly well and still had plenty of guts. I'm still getting to grips with how it flies as it is a bit of an animal but with the additional stability of the lower HS I am getting more consistent with the Piroflip Reversals (the additional flight time from the packs may help).

A great session slightly marred by the occassional shadowing of the model when the clouds rolled through. I gave this a lot of consideration before buying but we can't have it all

Another couple in a rushed session this morning before kite flying with my daughter at the annual local festival.

Playing with headspeeds for a good overall setup. Also reduced the pitch from 12.5 to 12. This heli is very different to anything I've flown to date.

Had to epoxy the tail boom spacer as I noticed the boom had been moving slightly after my 2 flights this morning. Also a rewire to get the optiguard working while I had the boom out of the way.

Wind had picked up. Tried some different headspeeds out (1900, 2000 & 2100).

A maiden/ optimiser flight and second flight on my G700C.

Very impressed with how it flies and worth the effort that went into the build.
