finally flew this heli again. I was programing the tail on the vortex. It sill needs work but it's getting better.

Flew at the Heli Spring Fling at my local club. I didn't do much flying as, once again, having problems with my helis. The 180 is still flying but my tail will need to be rebuilt as I am getting a lot of slop in it. Nothing too bad. But my E7SE... I flew it for the first time since the ESC shutdown and I held my breath every time I flew it inverted. It didn't shut down but I'm having that really bad shake again. I just stripped the whole heli to fix it the first time, what can it be this time? I've been under a crap load of stress lately because of the problems with my helis. It just seems like everything I go to do fails or makes things worse. I just want to fly my larger helis...

A good day of flying. I flew 8 flights at home and just hit 200 flights on my 180 since I bought it. Then I went out to the field, day one of the ten day funfly and put on another two flights.

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.

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. :)

6 flights

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.

Good flights. However, I came inches away from plowing my heli into a fence... twice in the same flight!

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.

A very good day of flying. I'm still a little sick but a lot better today. Flying the 3-Blade head and at a lower head speed makes for some great flight times! Also, I tested the E7SE after some work and finally got the shake out!

First 3D flight with the 3-Blade head and it flew great! The heli is so much quitter and more stable in the air. It is a lot easier on the tail and just feels like a larger heli! I flew it today in between thunder storms. a lot of storm systems are passing through all day today. But I had to get a flight in today to test it. Haha.

First flight was good.

Second flight was at night and under a light. I changed my head to the 3-Blade head that I had for years. I decided to give it a try again. It was a good flight. There's a huge difference from the 2 to the 3 head. Can't wait to try to 3D it in the morning. Oh, and I did change the pinion.

I was flying in agility mode when I flipped the quad and the motors reversed. It startled me and I loss my orientation. So I hit throttle hold and watched it fall to the ground. I could have saved it but throttle hold if the first thing I go for so... whoops. Only cracked one arm. The same one from the last crash. BRING OUT THE RESIN!!!

Ok flight at home but the second flight was on my way home from work when I stopped at an empty lit parking lot and flew it. The wind was strong so it was very hard to fly. I did a flip at one point and the wind caught the disc and blew it straight to me. I hit TH and the heli bounced off of me. Close call. Only light damage.

A good day of flying. Though on my 3rd 180CFX flight, I had a link pop off in flight and the heli shook and the crashed. I only had to replace skids, one tail boom support rod, and the links. Then I was back in the air!

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.

Flew my 200QX like crazy today. Reversing the motors and flying 3D is just awesome! The last flight, however, I got my reversing mixed up and actually reversed the motors to the wrong direction and caused the quad to be thrust to the ground. It did break but I'm fixing it.

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.

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.
