Damn straight I am playing it safe! Last thing I want is to crash wide open inverted because I decided to "try to be like Doug". Please remember that Fender is doing awesome but he is passing the 1500 battery mark as well as the 2 year mark. I am just at the 6 month mark and 300 batteries.

So please tell me, where should I be right now there Doug?

Seriously,

I'm considering going scale as I don't want to do 3D.

I enjoy is the smooth style.

As someone once said, "No 3D here".

Look here Doug, I just got back from 3.7 packs of "hovering around". Turns out you got me so worked up that I tried a back flip and plowed, let me stress this ... PLOWED my Rex into the earth INVERTED WIDE FREAKING OPEN THROTTLE! Well kind of inverted really, as I made it part of the way back around before if splintered in 1000 pieces.

What a timely topic. Lately, I've been thinking about Tryan's challenge from a month or so ago. Inverted or basic 3d by the end of the summer. At this point, this isn't realistic for me.

About a month ago, I had hit a personal milestone with the 8s and Toolman piros in the garage. From there I spent some time thinking about what my next steps should be. With a long term plan in view, I decided to forgo the usaual jump to flips, rolls, etc and decided to hunker down and master upright before moving on. From there I plan on repeating the process inverted. By comparison to other pilots, I expect to appear to be moving slowly. And at times it feels like the progress is glacial. But I know what kind of pilot I want to be in 3 to 5 years and I know how to get there.

As for the comfort zone, I can assure you that I am rarely comfortable when I'm flying. If I ever get comfortable, I move on.

I'm getting better with sticks, today gotten even better and more comfortable with heli even more again. I did a loop a month ago and worked! then I crashed hard on concrete.

After then tracking issues, motor issues, belts issues and blades issues took weeks to solved the problem. After that I was scare to crash it again. Until today starting get real comfy again, working my way to even harder crash!

I have a Blade400, its even bigger more stable then King2, but I like the king 2 much much better!
