shesha: thats the spirit! I hope you'll have alot of fun

BTDT: whats the problem with some snow? As long as it isn't snowing while you're in the air...

Snow should be fine to land on no?

I found you price comparison with helis quite amusing


Anuong: leave the toilets and go fly


Cheers

Hi again


While sitting around at home just feeling sorry for myself I decided to look up some vids of my flying. I found my last flight that I did almost a month ago... havn't flown since.

Here it is: Final Flight

It has some nose in work but pretty much standart.

Feel free to comment.

Cheers
Tony

Nice flying! Nose-in with confidence.

I wish I had video's of me flying. LOL. Don't want proof of how bad I fly and embarrassed myself.

Hello shesha,
You'll love your Evo. Once you test it, you'll be stuck flying it. You've been warned.

Thx for the vote of confidence BTDT

I just wish I had progressed this last month but oh well... you can't have it all.

About you filming your flights... why not? Its great to see the evolution you take. I have a couple of videos with my first flights... only hovering around...


Cheers
Tony

I was so upset and depress today, I purchased the XRB. I hope it's good to fly around in the house. So next year, I'll be ready for solid nose in with my EVO. . Hope it get it on Friday.

The Trex is a little too big for the house and will cause too much damage if it hit anything, maybe I'll get it in the spring for the backyard.

LOL BTDT

And I thought I was the only one depressed

I think the XRB will be great for nose in practice. Its stable and you can bump it around without harm.


Nose in isn't that difficult but I still find myself thinking about the commands when in tail-in I don't think them over anymore. It all comes down to practice.

In the meanwhile I finally choosed the field I'll sacrifice for my helis. If everything goes right this weekend there will be a couple of guys cutting down trees (I found a spot in the back of the terrain that has only 14 trees or so) so I have a 30m x 100m ground space for flying (air space is larger). Should be enough for training

Maybe I'm going to build a helipad too should look cool

Cheers
Tony

-Blade CX

How much you paid for the XRB tattered Lama?

I saw video of this Blade CX it's great, very stable and likely cheaper and wireless as well.

My is the XRB SR Lama RC Version (no tether). I paid $299 for it. Free shipping and no tax.

Here a link that I found about the XRB and it has a video flying outdoors.

tchavei,
It's not just for nose in only, it's for FAI training in the house.

Only kidding, maybe. Let's see what it can do first. I know it too steady compare to the real one. But I'll get better at excuting my flight plans.

Well

I don't know about the FAI training. The bird appears to be so stable you won't need to work too hard to accomplish basic FAI maneuvers. I think the most beneficial will be indeed orientation.

BTW, did you ever do circuits in front of you? How do you feel about them?

Finally... where is Anuong? Still at the Field? Its time to come home and visit RR...


Cheers
Tony

How did an Evo thread become a thread about a blade cx? Who needs to discuss that little plastic crapper when you originally were talkin about an actual machine the Evo baby!!!

...Once upon a time there were Nitros, flybars and frequency pins...

I just order it on Monday. I was hoping to get it by Friday. UPS shows delivery for next Tuesday .

That's not that cheap. The Blade CX is cheaper at $200 and is less quality. Hirobo has better heli's.

The only flying around in front of me is side in low to the ground back and forth.

Hello OICU812,

LOL

Hello Cranium,
Nice upgrades .

How much faster can the Triton charger over the stock charger? I also have a Triton. They told me that the stock charger is only a 45min charge. I didn't research about charging Lithium polymer batteries yet.
I know for my Duralite, I just use there charger and not worry about it.

A buddy of mine has the SB50 and loves it.

Hello anuong,
Busy flying right??? , I know, work comes first to support the hobby.


Hello tchavei,
Bet you can't wait for Xmas.

Hello Naomi,
Which one are you getting? The XRB has foam blades so if flying it the house any oops will not damage anything. The Blade CX has plastic blades, so it will mark up the walls or the TV. I know we will not crash but you never know.

Can't wait until next week!!!!!!

It's going to SNOW again tonight 3" to 6"

If I had my XRB, I won't care about the snow.

The Triton charger will get the max charge into the battery at the quickest and safest rate.

Usually the wall LiPo chargers that are quick chargers only get the battery about 80% charged. It's the last 20% that can take as long as the first 80%. The Triton may not do it faster than the one that comes with it but it will do it better. It will charge a bit, stop, check voltages, adjust charge rate if necessary and start charging again during the process until the battery is peaked.

I've used my Triton on all my batteries (LiPo, NiMH, NiCad, Pb & soon LiIon) for over a year and love it. I cut the ends off of all the wall chargers and made a few charging wire harnesses. One harness does everything associated with my RC Truck and the other harness does everything associated with my micro heli's (including glow starters). And with the fire hazard associated with overcharging Lipos or charging damaged Lipos, the Triton has a temp monitor that will shut the charger off if the battery exceeds 90°F.

I can attest to the plastic blades leaving marks on walls, furniture and damaging blinds. I learned to fly on a Picollo in my apartment

I'm just reading my manual for Lithium's, there is no peak detection sensitivity setting. Is that right?

For a 720mah Lithium polymer, quick charge is .720 * .7 = .5A?
I don't have the battery yet, so does it tell you how many cells in a pack?

I saw a replacement pack with spec's below.
850mah 10c 2 cell lipo
With 3-wire connector

It's a 850mah,
What is the 10c?
2 cell pack,
Which wire do you charge on with a 3-wire setup?

Thanks

Guys,

Picture below is my upgrade. Just a week ago, I changed the head to SDG. Everything else is the same. With this setup, I beat the crap out of this machine


So far, it is holding up pretty well.
