I fly everyday. Cant stop myself. I actually made circles in front of me. It looked good. Had plenty of speed. I guess i was mentally locked up on it. Now that ive done it its opened my flying up alot. I cant believe i waited so long to do it. Figure 8's are easy if you arent afraid of nose in. I actually stopped it in flight and just hovered nose in for a while and then off again. Im not a great pilot but i can tell you knowing all orientations is very helpful. Im learning to deal with the wind though. It gets quite windy here in Corpus christi. I have no choice. I must fly in it if i want to fly. I do use the wind to help get the speed up. Man the belt cp takes off quick on a downwaind run. Today i was leaning the heck out of her trying to get back upwind. It was a fun day. Im gonna try to get one more flight before it gets dark.

No, I don't get to fly the real bird as much as I'd like. But I'm satified with my progress as-is and while I love the peer pressure, I don't let it disort my development plan. That plan includes a lot of SIM time while outside, its pouring and windy. So I guess that means I should shut-up?

I flew 4 batts and then got a little disoriented with the heli about 200ft away and 20ft up and really couldn't see it with hardwoods at the backdrop. Not too bad though, 1 blade and 2 small plastic parts. I broke an extreme plastic blade during the crash too, tell me I'm not a B.A.M.F.!

4 packs thru the 450's and 3 thru the 600 it was pretty cool out and breezy but I flew anyways.I even went to a parking lot so I could streach out the flying and it was good to have some room to fly. I might do that everynite now as we have plenty of time after work to fly...

Getting the timing right for a clean looking flip is hard but once you get it, it will lock in for you with that heli... I'm still scrapping off the rust from the winter small yard flying, trying to get used to seeing the heli 100 yards away again...

I hate you guys. My king is still down from his concrete nap and it was just too windy for me to wreck the mini. Most of the day was 20+mph winds with gusts to almost 50mph. Yesterday was even worse. Tomorrow doesn't look good either.
