(4-7 mph) Light breeze
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.
