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.

Drove out to Staffordshire heli club to fly with some new people. Met Rachel, Mickey, Steven and a couple of others. The club is really nice with the flight area sloping away from the flightline. It sounds like 4 of them might be doing F3N this year so I'll probably see them at the gliding club in 2 weeks.

First few flights were horrible, absolutely no connection with the heli until I realised I'd changed the mainrotor optimisation yesterday. Changed that back to it's previous value and the feel I wanted was back, along with the loss of pitch during full aileron.
After a few flights of changing optim, expo, paddle sim, etc. AK gave me some help and we pinned it down to the cyclic ring value being too low. Moved that up to about 75 and I had the feel around centre i wanted, along with a working pitch range. The cyclic feels very much like the Vortex I had a few years ago, and the heli feels like it should now.
The rest of the day was a blast, couldn't do anything wrong, even had a chat to Duncan and Wayne.

Was having some weird issues with IU1 that weren't apparent in IU2. Went through the all flight modes and the only difference was the optimizer setting. Set them all to the lowest setting and all is good. No idea what it does though.
Finished early due to bad visibility.

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. :)

OWB failed on the A on the first spool-up. Took the B out, but it needed quite a bit of work to get it flying nicely.
It was too dark for sunglasses and the cold air was making my eyes water so I didn't stay long. It was probably a better evening for the foamies.
OWB has been replaced ready for tomorrow.

Forgot to change the lipo on my second flight and the heli shutdown. Managed to land and then tipped over, front skid broke. Bit of hot glue should keep it flying until UK has stock.

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.

Windy, cloudy and cold. Lots of auto practice, until I ran out of HS doing an auto loop. Bailed out, but wasn't going to make it so went back into TH and let it go in. Broke a blade and dented the boom, but the rest looks OK. Will service it tonight, ready for tomorrow.

Ail tictocs too low and went too wide with one, got too close to the wall and over corrected, then I hit TH and landed with a bounce. DFC arm/rod popped out. Popped it back on and I was good to go.

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.
