Either you are a great pilot or that Demon is doing a great job of stabilizing the Heli, or maybe a little of both! I like the Humvee too! I cannot believe your heli can pickup 45lbs.!

Pilot!!
The stab system does work great... that said, not everyone can pilot one of these machines. Totally different learning curve for setup and flying..so, don't short change the pilots abilities!! The first piro and first ( maybe the second too) nose in will definetly make you wonder WHY you just did that!!

New Pilots..
I want to hear from the "new" pilots..
I flew mine 2009-2014.. Hirobo with their electronic mixer.. took quite a bit of setup to make it fly, but a few of us got them rocking!!
Completely flat turns and piros took a bit of getting used to, and your first nose in with those two 3 blade heads spinning into each other was quite a site..you rode the elevaror like it was you best friend!! Every once in awhile you could blow the air out from under the rear head for a real yahoo moment!!

Only difference I have noticed so far with mine is the yaw response is not nearly as "crisp" as a typical tail rotor machine. All of my heli's have some expo on the rudder (to make center stick less sensitive). On this heli, I have added a little opposite expo to make center stick MORE sensitive to get it to "feel" more similar to my "normal" helicopters. Other than that, the heli responds very normally and flies the same as a "pod and boom". I have also noticed that it picks up speed in forward flight quite fast!

Now I havent had mine in full on forward flight trying banked turns yet (only have done some very small circuits indoors), so I am not sure what to expect with that yet. But I honestly dont expect anything "unusual". I attribute the "normal flying feel" all to the BD3SX. I imagine the older mechanical mixing and the later electronic Hirobo mixer might have made flying somewhat "weird".

I am pretty sure the BD3SX has made tandem flying pretty much "plug and play" for us normal folk.

Dang! Little 'Hook can haul some butt!! You should build a special light weight version and enter the speed contest.

My first Hirobo Chinook, was actually the CH-46, with the mechanical mixing! When properly set up it flew quite well! However, setting it up properly was a real trick! My second one was a Hirobo Chinook with electronic mixing, which was also a real trick setting it up, but did fly quite well!
