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.

Practiced some tic tocs and some speed passes on the 180. The E7SE, I flew it for the first time this year and since the crash at HOD. I still need work done on the tail but it did great for what I did to it today.

Ok day at the field. Very windy and a big storm cut the flying short. But hung out at DQ with friends for 4 hours after. Good day overall.

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.

Good flight. The wind won't stop any time soon. Also, it started to rain. I practiced the tight funnels again and I'm getting them smoother! Battery 2.

Good Flights. The wind was in gusty but the heli flew well in it. Same stuff as before but I did tightened my funnels to one spot and about 5' from the ground.

Great two flights. Very windy in the field. I practiced some more speed passes and tried a pirouetting tic toc. It wasn't pretty but it was my first one in real life. Battery 2 for the first flight, then battery 1 for the second.

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.
