Not specified on Blade 300X
Got to the field thinking it would be a great session today. Got the 300x out for a quick test flight before tomorrow nights indoor. Had a few flips and started to do some turns when the 300 started flying forward with no control. After a quick try to control it I hit hold and watched the heli fly gracefully in to the dirt. It seems the motor and elevator swash link had been rubbing and it had gone through letting the link pop off.
Next up was the 500 DFC. I was looking forward to some flights on this as its been out of action. Took off done some orientation hovers and pitch pumps then flipped it over. The blades bogged so I flipped it over and the head speed went straight back up. More pitch pumps and flipped it again... Same thing. Landed to find the one way bearing not doing its job.
Lastly I got the 700L out. Took off and started flying around, flipped it over and flipped it back but something wasn't right. Turned out it was in normal mode! I must say I'm impressed with the Vortex E-Gov, it was still trying with a linear throttle curve. Second flight was very good, in idle 2, but the cold got to my thumbs.
A day to forget.. Roll on the weekend
