Good job.
A word of advice though: You really shouldn't chance flying while a train is passing that near. Those things pour out RF all over the place. When you see a train coming it's best to just land, shut down, and wait for it to be gone. Then back to the fun stuff.
Happy Flying.

Watching the vid a second time I noticed several trains passed by pretty fast, I'd just find another place to fly well away from all those trains.
Where our group flies, we usually have to wait on 1 or 2 trains during a session. There were 3-5 trains pass by just during your 1 flight in that video.

The train is quite far away it just looks close ish
but your right i shouldnt fly when they come past But you dont see them untill they go past lol
so theres no time to land ,,,, i just put the blast Shield down and use the force and i never get any raido int from them but
i dont go there much i just use that field to set up and test the heli its close and EZ to get to
may the force be with you

i think you need to balance something.

some vibration is showing up on your cam and i believe that might be one of the reasons the colors on the video keep changing....

Snap!!

Just flew my first figure eight today too! Had a couple of goes at nose-in hover too and didn't bring it home in a box!! Had to cut short my third tank when my engine started playing up, can't seem to get the mixture quite right. Back tomorrow when i can have another go at the mixture settings...
