It was quite windy and the Protos handles wind a lot worse than my T-Rex 500. Almost crashed it badly. I went down completely vertical with high speed and wanted to transition into fast forward flight when a wind gust caught the heli and pushed it towards the ground. With full collective and lots of elevator I was able to recover really close to the ground. The telemtry showed a current spike of around 90 amps. It was really close and I was quite shaken after barely avoiding the total destruction of the heli! 😱

good flights, starting to do some inverted flying and more flips and rolls with the heli. Still getting to know each other.

Sun goes down later, so I was avle to get two flights in after work. I like the protos, it. Is fast and quiet. The tail gain seems ok, but I will increase the rates a little bit. Collective could also be a bit more aggressive.

The weather was great, but I couldn't use my regular flying spot. Didn't care much for the alternative spot at that field: not enough space for my taste. Flying there felt awkward so I left it at one flight.

With fully loaded packa I brought flighttime up to 7min without stressing the packs. Really nice.

With the warmer weather I discharged the packa further, gaining some flight time. I addes a little bit of headspeed to get 1800, 2200 and 2450. I fly at 2200 most of the time.

Getting more and more used to the model. First flips and rolls with the protos.

The motor shut offs were due to the receiver failsafe. I put aluminum foil in the tail case and soldered the wire between tail boom and motor mount. Now I have continuity between tail shaft and motor mount. That should take care of static.

I also improved the satellites positions and refreshed the binding between sats and TX.

The flight went well and the logfiles showed hardly any frame loss. But the confidence to fly far away is not there, yet.

The first flight was ok, some piruettes and larger circles. At the end of the second flight the motor suddenly shut down for a second. Luckily the heli only lost some altitude and spooled up again in the air. I landed immediately and no damage was done. But now I have to figure out what happened. Good thing the Brain2 has logging capabilities. That may help.

Flying small circles. Still enjoying the sound of the Protos

First spool up of my new Protos 500! It was so nice. Bought the heli used in July and rebuilt it completely. Took a long time and now I spooled it up for the first time. Just great, the heli is so quiet and it lifts off with so little headspeed. I spooled it up, lifted off, did some hovering a meter off the ground and that was it. Everything went smooth. Now I will check all the screws and the FBL Logfiles.

It is such a great feeling, when the skids of a new heli leave the ground for the first time 😃
