Thanks guys! Sorry for video quality, I would not be able to upload bigger resolution. Sure, I made a whole bunch of mistakes, but I was a bit nervous after my last crash, when belt broke.
What do you think should I be working next, except polishing what I call 'flat' flying? Yeah, I know, my flips are pretty sloppy.

KV , your flips looks pretty good to me, perfect flips are difficult with the King, its not exactly a precision machine. One manuver I have been trying to master---one of my favorites is the "inverted funnel" -- have you ever tried it Heli_KV or have any interest in trying it ?

That is some nice flying. Very smooth and in control. Also most of it is quite low. You have to be a good pilot to fly without the safty net of the altitude.

I did noticed the same raspy sound that I'm hearing from the my HBK2.
What do you think should I be working next,
Hmm, well. Since I can't do a lot of the stuff you are ready doing I'm not really qualfied to answer. But as I'm headed down roughly the same skillbuilding path you seem to be on, here are couple thoughts on what I planning on working on. I know you only have so much time in a video and you did great job packing it with a good demonstration of different moves. So forgive me if comment on something you are already doing but didn't show in the vid.

1) More backward flight. Work on cirles in both directions, then figure eigths in both directions. Bonus points for a backwards upright loop. Careful with the HBK2, as it may blow out on the way down.

2) Backwards inverted flight. Your forward inverted already looks very good.

3) Traveling flips. While flipping work getting the heli to move forward, backards and up.

4) Side-in and nose-in flips. Not sure where you were standing in relation to the camara. So you may have already done these.

Again, great work.

Thanks guyes for the tips and estimations.

Doug, thanks for pointing how funnels should be made. Nice flying. Will work on this and on flips all orientations. Greg, good catch - I flip only in one direction.

Doug, what pulleys front/tail do you have? No that raspy sound that Greg pointed out.

About raspy sound - I just shot short video from Rave trying to demo that raspy sound. Maybe this is different sound that Greg pointed. But still worse to hear. At least Rave does not have slipping tail, because it is torgue tube. I like TTs actually.

I am not sure, if I can make this video available, now it shows 3 hours left to upload with my Internet. But I will still keep trying to upload.

I have a strange combo right now, a Blade400 tail pulley and a plastic 40 tooth HDX300 pulley that I drilled out to 5 mm and has two grub screws to hold it on

Thanks Melnic ! Heres a first Dudes- my very first "Blade scrape" if you listen closely at 22 seconds the main blades hit the ground and it sounded like a bullit wizzing by Its really no big deal but its a good feeling to hit the ground and NOT crash
