Too much Bud Light.lol.

My cousin was watching me fly and when I landed it he ask what the Helicommand was.So I changed out the pack and took off to show him.
I run it up about twenty feet and turned on the Helicommand and like I told him,it just hangs there hands free.
Then he asked if I could do 3D with it the way I was flying before.
I said sure can and nosed it over inverted to show him a hover.
I never went to idle up.Realized a little too late and couldn't get it right in time.It split the crowd.Almost hit me and the boys.Went into the ground hard.

Like I said...too much beer.About 8.

I don't use the Helicommand so when I flipped it back my mind took that as flipping the idle up back.They are beside each other.

Oh well,expensive lesson learned.

Yup, that is a bummer. I have crashed a couple of times due to not being in idle up. I am hoping I have learned my lesson by now. (knock on wood)

Sure hope you were kidding about the drinking and flying an rc heli. Just wondering why you use helicommand on a 3D machine? Sorry about the crash but I agree that building is part of the fun.

lol.
Sad but true.

I'm expecting my parts tomorrow from helisrtf.com

I actually ordered another Trex 500 kit and I'll just take the parts I need from it and then as I can afford it I can complete the other kit.

All I'll need is a torque tube drive set up,two DS510 servos,a gyro and tail servo.

Then I'll have two complete Trex 500's.
Always good to have a spare.

Oh,by the way,I have everything here at home to make the heli belt drive so really all I'll need is a tail boom,servos and gyro.

It is a Helicommand 3D.I use it like a parachute learning new stunts.
It will work inverted if I need it.

Thanks guys.
Now I can start putting together the new ESP.
I will have to get the new tail boom and a few other things to finish it.

Thanks again for the encouragement.

I would recommend practicing more on the virtual horse first. I found the Trex500 model for the Reflex XTR sim. Awesomeness.
