Yeah for real Mark is one of those rare guitarists that you can tell who is playing without seeing him--no pick, just fingers, reminds me of Jeff Beck in that way. First heard him about 35 years ago with "Sultans of Swing" and said to my self---totally unique. That was a nice song to Start my day with, Thanks MikyMike.

I flew mine last night too.

Those AFTA MACKAT blades are cool!

I think they calm it down some...That's good IMHO.

That little heli is so fast, it gets far away fast. Too fast.

It looked like the blades were easier to see than the fuse.

That's good too.

Still no "damage crashes"?

The only things changed after about 10 hard hits are the main blades (by choice) and finally the main gear---there is a "Keyway" in the gear hole that finally got rounded out. So there goes about .60 cents--Dag Nabit

So where did those blades come from?

Did it feel like it flew more tamer with them?

TAMA?

Reason I ask is this V977 is a little too jittery for my preference.

I can fly it, but it's a very intense type of flying.

And, that's with it in 6G and not IDLE UP.

BTW, here's my Mark Knophler impression.

Don't worry, I didn't sing.

MMike for real---that was Awesome, you play with a lot of feel, I fart around with guitar but can't play like that, I'm more of a DrummA !

I got them with a used mcpx bl heli so I really don't know. They are a little wider and a smidge longer and it seemed a little more stable but not a lot more stable. Look for some after market Mcpx BL blades and you will probably find them or something like it, Oh yeah and the hollow body guitar is Awesome too !

Thanks Doug.

On the blades, if it's only a slight difference, I might not even notice because I only fly 6G...Not to be confused with 3D.

Whenever I hit the ground it sounds like the main gear is totally stripped out but when I check it----its Not It's like a self- fixing heli The only parts changed so far is the main gear and main blades. I still can't believe that the least expensive heli I ever bought is the toughest---whoever designed this heli is "Wicked Smart"

Now that I own a heli that doesn't make me see $$$$$ when it's flying...

I've learned to do circles...Now that's no big deal to most people...BUT...It's a big deal for me as I've struggled for years.

Someone in a recent RR thread said there's often a gap between simulator and actual flying experience...That's been my problem...AND, I was too nervous to push my limits with a TREX...

WL TOYS works for me.

So for you Doug, you were already flying 3D...

You weren't stuck like I was.

I suppose 60 cent crashes just makes it more fun / less stressful.

Not really MMike, more like "Crazy D"
You weren't stuck like I was.
Yes I was MMike, I flew exactly the same way for 2 Freakin years----could not do an inverted funnel without crashing no matter what I did--I am now working on it with the V977, I don't use a simulator, I'm a stubborn Bastard
I suppose 60 cent crashes just makes it more fun / less stressful.
Hell Yeah---can I get an Amen I can't play guitar like you either MMike so we all gots different brains I guess.

Crazy "D"

Yea, Crazy circles is what I'm working on right now.

I guess I'm an aspiring Crazy "D" flyer.

And yes, Amen we're all wired differently.

My friend Dan is working on circles too, the scary thing for most peeps is you are "Nose-in" for a couple of seconds but if you let the heli keep going forward and stay relaxed, it will swing back around to a more comfortable position---or a wall--what-ever comes first
