Went out today with the Trex 450, first flight after crashing my Outrage 90 on New Years Day. This is my first inverted flying outside of my sim attempts. 6th time flying ever

Great flying!
I burned at least 20-30 tanks before my first flips and rolls.
Keep it up!

Yes, congratulations... It took me at least a year to get to inverted flying... Just curious: are you a gamer? Gamers tend to progress faster...

I wouldn't consider myself a gamer... But I do play a lot of 1st person shooters with my kids. I also do a lot of scale rc rock crawling which believe it or not, takes some concentration and control.

Thanks for the encouragement!

On a side note..... I'm probably being a little careless and wreckless by flying inverted so soon...... I tend to rush things a bit. I'm still not comfortable flying in all orientations, and crash a lot on Phoenix when flying for extended periods nose in. I tried this today because I lost a little confidence after crashing my 90 on new years day. But I'm determined to fly 3D by mid year so I'm forcing myself not to loose my nerve from a minor accident.

Ya.... I suck too.
I put brand new blades and a new engine in my Velocity 90 and flew it yesterday. Flawless first tank. Then I'm getting ready to take off on my second tank and I tripped. Could of been a disaster! I was as 1/2 throttle, blades at speed, and decided I wanted to stand in a different position. I tripped as I was moving, and the right stick caught on my shirt. Needless to say, the heli flipped on its side and my blades exploded in a furious Outrage (pun intended). 1 flight old..... I might has well flushed a Benjamin in the toilet

Sorry for your loss.
On the bright side, lots of new guys don't get the awesome first flight and also lose much more per flight.
Remember it, keep your chin and skids up!

I am definitely keeping my chin up. Having tons of fun! On a side note (I have lots of side note!) I also crashed the trex 450 yesterday
I am still learning to not ignore my alarms. I have my timer set for 5:30min on a 2200mah battery. It went off as soon as I lifted off but my brain ignored it. I remember thinking 'I have time to get a nice Lake shot'. I was wrong

That's exactly my plan for 2014 and just gotta used 500 to carry it thru,Id rather crash something small, less dangerous and inexpensive than to screw my beautiful rap 50 in the earth, or atleast for now

CAUTION!!! politicians may be hazerdous to your well being
