I got my T-Rex SE in the first week of January, and have flown about 25 packs on it. This was my third heli, after a .30 gas Shuttle years ago, and a CP Hornet for the last few years. I only got the Shuttle to do wide tail-in circuits, and the Hornet was really only good for circles around me (not in front of me).

Well, I am happy to say that after buddy boxing it a few times with a local friend (spork on the board here), I successfully looped it twice today and rolled it twice too! I am also doing really round tail-in figure 8's, some nice nose-in at altitude, and a few remote circles here are there...

It's a pretty cool rush. Nice to see the progress one can make in one month of practice. If I can do it, anybody can!

Oh yeah, and before I forget, I had 1 crash from a side-in/nose-in brain fart a few weeks ago but that's it...

Hey man, I know how you feel man! I did my first loops and rolls with my SE as well and my first attempts at inverted hovering just last week. MAN IT'S A RUSH! Now that I've gone to a more powerful setup, my goal is to be able to do basic rolls and flips and inverted hovering low to the ground. After that, must learn upright funnels, then backwards flight, then side ways flight, then inverted.... the list goes on! Enjoy it man!

Ha, thanks for the support! It seems you are a few weeks ahead of me Mikel! It sure helps to have a buddy to fly with (cause they keep yelling into your ear "Loop! Loop!" and you can't let them down )

Also, this site was very helpful:
