Crap, Ready Heli has restocked - every 500 kit is now in stock except the 550SX, and several 600 kits in stock as well. With %10 off it's hard to resist.

I see another 700 in your future

Seems to me I've heard more and more talk about 700s from you lately...

I just keep repeating to myself 'no 12S...no 12S...'etc., and so far it's working!

Great day at the field today! 2 maidens: Sean with his brand new T-Rex 550 DFC did great, and so did Chris with his brand new Goblin 500. Both are well set up beautiful birds... Chet is progressing fast with ever higher flying and some premises of circuit; I am very impressed.

It was great seeing everyone today. I will post pictures within a couple of days.

I had another power loss on my T-Rex 600 followed by a forced auto-rotation resulting in a stripped tail gear. The error code from the ESC allowed me to figure out that this is due to over-current I will either have to get to a lower gear ratio or get a higher capacity ESC... Alternatively, I am starting to think that I should sell this heli after I repair it... Anyone interested?

What a great day! It was great to see everyone. Thanks to all for the help and support. Pas. l and David p. For helping with my tail / gyro issue.

Sean's Rex flew amazingly and he is quite the pilot! Was super cool to see him and that Heli back at it zipping around.

The goblin.... 1st spool up started well then shifted violently! My gyro was not correcting the right direction and the goblin went into a gnarly pirouette on the ground. Hit th and gave some rudder and she came to a stop with no harm done. Went home. Reversed my gyro setting in ikon and went back for another go. Had David p. Pascal and Darrell look over the movements and everything checked out. So graciously everyone on deck cleared a path for me to try again instantly. Spooled and up she went. More stable than I could have possibly imagined. Hovered for 1.5 min before I decided to land because I was shaking so bad it was nuts. Landed no issues.

Calmed down flew the 130x a few times. David p talked me into going upside down... (Thanks) gave a fly by and pulled the nose up and around she went. (First time ever inverted). Got her back. Did a half roll, stayed inverted for a few seconds. Flipped it back over and borough her home.

Flight 2 with the goblin lasted a full 3min!!!! Much more comfortable. Controlled shaking. Tested the tail and stops on piros. Stopped instantly no bounce or wag at all. What a fun day! Thanks again to all!!!

I agree with Pascal that it was a very nice day! Enjoyed seeing another Align 550e. Sean seems to like it just fine. I think I may take Sean's tip about another canopy. And Chris's bird sounded great! I want a Goble too, in red or orange! I now know that SAB makes blades and the Goblins. And they are an Italian firm too. Didn't know any of that. Thanks Sean and Chris for the popcorn and soda. Pascal's nose down tic tocs were primo! I really like doing the nose down ones because I can slam the sticks in the same directions. Easy for me to remember and a wonderful feeling too.

Sorry to hear about the ESC issue Pascal, but pleased that you were able to find cause. You are starting to fly pretty hard and you may have progressed past this particular setup.

As much as I would like to have another 600esp I think I have too many helis now and will pass on trying to buy it from you. You could use the 600esp as an autorotation practice airframe? You've already done plenty of autos with it anyway.

I have to agree with every one it was a fun day good to see two new birds in the air. After almost every one had left Hung showed up. I had not seen him in awhile that was nice. Pascal glad you figured out what your problem was.

Thanks Pascal! This was a great day for me, broke a couple milestones. Flew my biggest heli ever, and then went inverted with the 130x. Pretty flippin sweet!

Is there a better way to post videos than YouTube or a faster way?
It's taking 30 min to upload a couple of mins of Sean flying.
