Converted Trouble to a scale MD500, maiden flight, straight into it, fantastic flying really stable and looks great, very happy with my first scale build and flying session

spooled 450 #1 up and as she lifted off she just started violently spinning...bleh heart stopping moment, anyway landed her safely without damage, but noticed the connection to the ball link on tail rotor had totally snapped off.... repair time again!

put 7 batts though my other heli, took me 5 batts to get the mojo back as i was just all over the place, last two batts just threw caution to the wind and did some great continuous flying at speed fig 8's then into stall turns with a piro, loops in bewteen stall turns and then back into x2 fig 8's before timer kicked in.

never done that before, well chuffed

Just popped out for a quick couple of flights, new canopy works a treat with visibility.
Fast sideways tail in flight and high speed stall turns with pirouettes practiced,

After rebuild last night on trouble was a bit worried, but she flew even better than she did before, only difference more setup time and different blades - used 325mm GF blades.

Other 450 was flying great until she hit the ground, almost same spot as yesterday, sort of realised that the canopy blended into the clouds, which made me lose orientation, time for canopy change.

Finally got out flying - but to my dismay TX not working, so ended up purchasing a new DX8 in the morning.
Flew x4 packs on 450 based on my sim practice during week, very happy with progress even though i stacked it into the ground (orientation mistake)
she's now rebuilt, just mechanical setup to do.
fig 8's
High speed stall turns
x2 slow flips
