Thanks to about 4 hrs on the XTR sim last nite, I hovered for 12 min. without setting the bird down in a 10'x10' area in my basement tonite... It was all tail in but to me, it is a big step. I think side on will be next. I have been doing tail in squares on the sim but I don't have the room for that..... Maybe some spot landings on the coffee table or couch, bet that could get expensive.......

Have you decided on the new Tx? I bought a new 7CHP (Tx only) off Ebay for $130 (6 month ago). I thought that was a good deal and will keep up for a while until I can do some flips (if I ever get there).

3D Pro? I have only "1D" under my belt, what am I going to do with "3D"?

I'm looking for a used futaba 7 or 9 channel pcm ppm with reciever and servos, if I can find a whole system. I'm still trying to fly on the sim but am having trouble seeing the heli's orintation in flight.... plus it's hard to get a stable hover with the 4 channel radio without all the mixing.... I have to use mechanical mix on XTR.... so it's time for a new radio and a cp heli... I might have a buyer for the hummer.
I see you have a ton of parts for sale, have any full cp birds or enough parts to build one?

I have enough parts to build a Elite CP, but like I said in the other post. I just don't have the time to go through the parts and put it together. At $85 for a new ARF CP that's a very good price.

Just a suggestion, why not skip the Elite CP and Blade CP level of birds and buy yourself a shaft or belt driven tail bird. The tail motor is real pain in the rear to work with.

Also if you are ready to move up, don't buy the 2S Lipo packs I told you to buy for your V3, because other than Blade CP and Elite CP all other micro CP birds requires 3S packs. Even the Blade and Elite works much better with the 3S and BL setup.

Again, good luck and have fun!

I agree with GF. Get a driven tail system.
