Started off at Larcs with Malcolm until lunchtime. Then flew at Gumley for a few hours. I managed to blow up the Fusion charger, so now I need to by an iCharger ASAP. I never liked the Fusion anyway, weird programming and the buttons were too fiddly.

A good day flying all over the place. I did some great flying on the 180. I replaced the main shaft and all problems are gone. I did fly it at a different field and did some awesome low 3D as well as some skid bumps on the road. I then flew it at the field and tried a skid bump, only to have the grass catch the tail and send the heli doing a chicken dance for a second. I picked it up and flew it with no broken parts. Rob also helped me try out some Sportsmen maneuvers that I need to learn for NATS this year. A lot of fun there. Also did a good flight on the E7SE. A good day today. :)

Haven't flown this thing in a while. I put the three blade head back on and noticed some head wobble. Turns out, my carbon fiber main shaft is cracked. Gotta replace it now. A great upgrade BTW!

1st session in over a year but I can still fly 😃

The 450X what can I say, the same good little heli which is always a joy to fly. I flew this 1st just to warm up.

The Blade 360 CFX has loads of power, almost no bogging in tight tic tocs, and overall a great Maiden flight. Silly me, I forgot to Velcro the batteries before I left out, but thankfully Phil had a small piece which I used on one of my packs. It feels like almost double the power of the 450X when you bang the collective, very nice indeed and I'm very happy with it. I wasn't going to mention it but it's true that Horizon provide the same 2 blade foam support that pegs onto the boom as you get with the 450X, proper stupid considering this is a three bladed heli. Anyway I'm simply supporting the middle blade (when they're all folded back) out of the 3 by using one of the slots in the support, and then using a Mikado battery strap to gently tie them all together which actually works very well.

I finished with two flights on the Logo which was super smooth as always, which for that reason probably makes it my favourite, at least for now. I just changed the swash after noticing the last time I landed (spring last year) that the middle section was coming away from the outer swash body. Anyway all is good, but even though the old swash looked pretty dodgy I honestly couldn't tell any difference, it just flies great.

Next the rain came so we all packed up. Overall a very nice morning.

It was an ok flight. Still have to replace the ESC and work on the tail. I did a lot of hard(ish) stops close to the ground and watched the young corn plants blow from the rotor wash.

Another day of beautiful weather. I had changed the belt the night before. After flying the T-Rex a lot and having a good feeling flying inverted, I was surprised how big the change back to the Protos was. It felt very different and it looks so different, that I am not so comfortable flying inverted circles with it. Nevertheless I like the Protos. I put my new, very light 2.600mah NanoTech in it and flew some low rpm. That was really nice and even with the 1.800rpm it handled very well. You can really feel the weight difference. Since the pack is not broken in I took out only 1.300mah in a 7 minute flight!

With every flight I can feel the confidence increase flying inverted.

Did some dry run autorotation training by just going really low on the rpm and listening to when the motor engages. Once I came down too hot and the akids touched the ground ever so slightly. No damage.

The perfect day! No wind at all and blue skies. I had so much fun. And for the first time I really felt that I was flying inverted. Other times I move the heli from one spot to another inverted or I concentrate to make one half turn, but this time I was just flying around inverted.

Felt really great. For the first time in a long while I felt that I made progress in my flying.
