(4-7 mph) Light breeze

Oxy 2
2 flights
Avg. flight time 00:05:20

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.

Bad luck Paz, although that's not the first time it's happened on that heli. What ESC are you running? Most of them have a LVC warning with a slowdown or pulsing.

Hi Richard, yeah it's not the first time lol. The LVC does come on about 20 seconds into the flight and the slowdown on the headspeed has just given me enough to quickly land it without doing to much damage. It's just me not paying attention when swapping batteries lol.

Hope your well, it looks like your on target to get more or close to the same number of flights as last year which is nice to see :)

I do the same every now and again. Fortunately the Vbar Control warns me straight away so no harm done.

I wasn't expecting to get any decent numbers this year, but it's been surprisingly good and the flights have just been coming naturally. I'm working on something really difficult at the moment and I quite enjoying the challenge. How's it been going at Leicester Heli Flyers?

I'm enjoying LHF, it's only 15 minutes away from my house. I'm the only early bird so tend to get a few packs done before anyone turns up. I'm getting a generator soon so I can spend longer at the field :)

Hi Richard, hope your well 😃

Just thought I say great job on the Moves feature on this site. I'm finding it really helpful, it's very motivating to watch and then try 👍

Makes this site unique 😃
