Well I did it I turned my rex upside down. Three flips!! But as I have been practicing on the sim for months and finally grew the stones to do it. Went off without a hitch But! when I was coming in to land I noticed a horrible vibration. I tore the thing apart Checked blades Tail every thing so I decided to tear the head apart and start checking bearings. The swash bearing felt like 100 grit sand paper so I am grounded until I receive my new swash in the mail. Next,, inverted hovering

Yes that is exactly what I got the V2. I guess I never knew that the bearing was going bad because I never idled it up till now. but doing those first flips was a rush even more than my first loop with a plank. I just can't wait till I get the new swash and get back out to the field in the mean time I will just fly my doggy ECO8.
