Nick,
Several things reduce traffic here, Texting and social media like facebook are killing forums in general.

Nick, try to come out on sundays. this sunday is looking like a wash out but usually, sunday we have a decent turn out. i'll be honest, i kinda lost interest for a bit. bought a few rc cars to play with and some quads. got into the fpv thing for a bit but got tired of the crappy flight controllers and sold it all. just went to cajun heli fest and actually had a good time flying again. burned a gallon of nitro friday. sold a few helis and now i only have 4. 2 get the most flying time. the nx7 and tsa. my x5 actually has dust on it. i do find myself not on the forums as much like Wayne said, facebook and other social media is almost like being on the forums. hell, even tyler hasnt been to the field in months that i know of. he barely flies now, but still hasnt lost his touch. he looked really good at cajun, maybe he needed a break. he threw down a nitro flight that was just as good as any other flight ive seen the pro's do. i personally haven't gotten any better. ive hit a wall that i cant seem to get past. i need to just fly more, and i know it. now with the time change i actually have plenty time to fly 4 or 5 packs on the way home every day.

Vplane
Put an old Vbar loaded with Vplane software on my Foamy. Wow, its like going from flybar heli to a flybarless heli, but on a plane. Triming is flip a switch if you even want to bother with trimming. Using 3 banks to control gains set to: Off/Med/High. Whole lotta fun!

I read a little more about VPlane on VStabi website but they didn't mention any thing about other controller beside VController. Can I use my JR Tx with this firmware?

Quan, It only works with Vcontrol transmitter. I have seen this question asked on Vstabi forum and Mikado folks say for technical reasons it would be very difficult to make work with other brands of transmitter but have not ruled out the possibility that in the future they would.

And yes the Mini works with it.

Howdy there Gang! Man it's been awhile since I have been on here and active with RC. I have been extremely busy just with work, home, other hobbies and some health related issues. Been getting better and caught up on things. I am really looking forward to getting back out to NOMAC soon and do some flying again. I am looking at some new heli stuff too, Damn stuff has changed! I'm going need all the help I can get lol! Well hope to see you guys soon and take care.

I made it to the field today, first time in about 3 months. Wanted to try out my new GPS II unit, well it works awesome accurate and fast readings.
There was alot of wind so I played it safe for the most part. First pack went 111 mph at 1900 rpms, second pack went 117 mph at 2100 rpms on 12S.
Third pack went 126 mph at 2300 rpms on 14S, less wind and I could have gone faster I am sure. Rewound motor in the mail can't wait to see what it can do!!!

Video of Mikado bailout in action, they call it "rescue". The radio is set to talk in German when he hits the switch. Think in english its says rescue begin, then when you move transmitter stick it says rescue ends. Rescue examples start about half way in. Wish they had this 7 years ago.

Watch at YouTube

One thing for sure is that guy can fly!!! The rescue looks like the old Skookum unit where it flips the heli upright and level!!!

Update on speed flying, today was a much better day for going fast not as windy as last week. I made a pass today at 140 mph at 2300 rpm's, I can't wait for the new motor to get here to see how fast I can go with it!!!
