I have owned my TDR for a few months but since I gave my wife the funds to finish it, it has been sitting built and on the wall.....empty.
Out of the blue I get a phone call from Danny (F1 Rocket). He asked me what did I need to get the TDR going and I told him everything but a motor (I won that at IRCHA ) Danny graciously let me borrow a Jive 80+HV, Helicommand Extreme, and a BLS251!!!! I was floored when Fed Ex dropped of the box of goodies....amazing!
Next I get a pm from Fred (Daugie) telling me he would GIVE me (2) BLS 451s and he even paid for shipping too!!! So I got (1) BLS451, used the 12s 3300 45C Pulse pack from my Logo 600, and she is in the air!
Here are some pics and a short easy flying vid my buddy Eric (Eo19) was kind enough to take.......

Watch at YouTube

Thanks again Danny, Fred, and Eric.....I am in the air!!!

Unsure of HS as I need to tach it but my motor is a Scorpion HKIII 4035-560. Motor seems to have plenty of power so far but I only have one flight so far

Thanks for the reply.

I would assume you are using a 13t pinion?

If you don't mind, post the headspeed when you tach it.

Thanks

Wow!! The heli community is awesome and the longer I've been in it it's been more about the people and less about the heli's.

Sorry for the late reply, work was a bear yesterday!
@ jstarks: I am using a 13T pinion and I will tach the HS sometime this week and post.

The heli community is made up of some special people for sure. I will be sure to pay this forward!!!!

Actually, I've been on the receiving end of Ron's generosity before so I see this as Karma coming back. Couldn't happen to a more deserving guy. /bow

laughingstill, nice flying area, is that a club field or a park area ?

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

We are lucky enough here in Gainesville to have a Community College that lets us use their open field to fly in. We have a great relationship with them and plan to keep it that way

It's about time u got that thing in the air

It's truly amazing to feel how a high quality German design flys compared to what we are used to... And it sounds like the Jive gov did very well.
