Not at but near. There are a bunch of guys who usually fly on the sports fields down Flat Bush School Road on the weekend.

Nothing but rain down here Mikey, so no flying for a bit - And probably NO more PUBLIC videos from now on (don't ask,cant be arsed explaining)
For the 7HV users there is now another option for the head unit.
There is now a traditional head available using a swash driver in replace of the current DFC - seems there is a market for both

That's what we wanna see bro, something new

Also 7HV DFC update: there will be a new 1 piece unit special link rod to replace the current version - look something like this, but a different color - just another option.

Hey guy's, have a read of this. Pretty scary what can happen if we're not careful.

I'm surprised it doesn't happen more often. I imagine the guy had one of those special 'ejecting' Gauis.

So those new delrin links are no adjustable? Reminds me of the Caliber 3 linkages.

Figured why my tail on the 7HV was so average. Linkage length the manual states 17.5mm which is BS. Dropped it to 14mm and now get a decent resolution in the HC3 which should improve things.

Some clown will say at least he died doing something he loved but bet you he would rather not have.

Every FBL unit is a little different. I know the VBar tends to prefer shorter servo arm lengths.

Is anyone looking to upgrade their batteries and sell there old ones? I'm looking for some 6s 4500 - 5000 or 6s 2650 - 3000 batteries cheap! Recent purchase of property means that my wife has slashed my chopper budget and I'm needing some more batteries to get more stick time up!!!! (rather than hanging round waiting for batteries to charge) Thought id ask around here otherwise I'll get some nanotechs from HK.
