A good day of flying. I flew 8 flights at home and just hit 200 flights on my 180 since I bought it. Then I went out to the field, day one of the ten day funfly and put on another two flights.

A good day of flying at home. I did crash the 200QX as the gyro did something and flew straight into the ground. A little glue and it'll be flying again. I also crashed the 180 into a tree but I picked it up and finished my flight. No broken parts so I am not counting it as a crash. I am catching up to you, RichardV!!! Haha.

This was a very good flight in the tight space that I'm flying in. I did very well and had well control in funnels. I even tighten the funnels to the point where the tail stayed in one spot. I had it light that and controlled for about 30 seconds. Very fun. :)

Had an interesting day today. Had a servo jam up in the first flight and it crashed due to that. But the only damage was just a set of skids. The other flights were good. I practiced some orientation maneuvers like tail in side flight, nose in side flight, up right and inverted pirouetting.

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.

A very good day of flying. I'm still a little sick but a lot better today. Flying the 3-Blade head and at a lower head speed makes for some great flight times! Also, I tested the E7SE after some work and finally got the shake out!

First 3D flight with the 3-Blade head and it flew great! The heli is so much quitter and more stable in the air. It is a lot easier on the tail and just feels like a larger heli! I flew it today in between thunder storms. a lot of storm systems are passing through all day today. But I had to get a flight in today to test it. Haha.

First flight was good.

Second flight was at night and under a light. I changed my head to the 3-Blade head that I had for years. I decided to give it a try again. It was a good flight. There's a huge difference from the 2 to the 3 head. Can't wait to try to 3D it in the morning. Oh, and I did change the pinion.

Ok flight at home but the second flight was on my way home from work when I stopped at an empty lit parking lot and flew it. The wind was strong so it was very hard to fly. I did a flip at one point and the wind caught the disc and blew it straight to me. I hit TH and the heli bounced off of me. Close call. Only light damage.

A good day of flying before I go to work. The temp was great but the wing was high. I still put on some flight in the day on both helis. Though, my last E7SE flight was cut short due to a bad shake in the head and tail. I am still investigating the shakes. The 180, I continued to fly under the lights at night after work.

I had a great day with my 180CFX today! I did my normal stuff and getting better at it but I practiced my piro flips and got them really smoothened out! I didn't want to land when my timer went off! Then this evening, I flew in the yard over a huge fire in the middle of my yard. I pulled off the gloves and just smacked the shiznit out of my 180 over the deck and over the fire. There was a lot of brush in the fire so that led to a lot of smoke. Seeing the vortexes from the tips of the rotor blades was so awesome to see. I almost lost my heli as I was staring at the votaries when the heli flew through the smoke. By far, the best flight yet!!! Battery 2, both flights.

Great Flight, no wind. I dialed the tail gain down from 70% to 67% and it reduced more tail wag. I did some mild 3D and then tried some speed passes. I gotta say, even though I haven't practiced speed flight and I was in a tight area with trees and fences, I still got that thing to hall!!! Very fun flight. I can't wait for the next. Battery 1, flew at home.

Crashed as a servo died and the heli pitched forward with full negative pitch. I throttle held and watched it fall. Only damage was the feathering shaft, main shaft, thrust bearings, bottom plate, and of course, the servo.

This is the first three flights I flew for the year before I started logging them on here. I had them logged in the RC log application but it crashed and I lost all of my flight tracks from last year and the beginning of this year. So I know they were around the 3 minute range so I am adding them as 3 minutes each. Now my total on here is the real total of flights I have put on on all of my aircrafts. :)
