No more excuses. Weather looks good so the 550 V-bar is going to get it`s first outing. l don`t mind admitting feeling some apprehension about it and it`s a long while since l felt like that over a heli. l think it`s because without the flybar l keep looking at it and thinking how the hell is this going to work. Still l`ve done all the checks about seven times so that`s it. Another couple of hours and well see if it can dance.

This heli is a real winner.
Got to confess l took a short cut with the setup. One of RR`s nice guys sent me his setup file and l imported it into the V-stabi so l new it was a flyable setup. This feature has saved me tons of grief as l don`t have a laptop.
So spool up, into the hover, seems good, try the cyclics, yup the`re fast enough, try the climb, it`s ok but nothing special, flip to inverted and try the climb out, wow, so that where all the pitch is, try the full stick piro rate, jesus Shawn likes it fast. So off into some inverted tornados, backwards rolls and tic tocs etc when l find myself thinking W T F am l doing, this is the first flight on a brand new heli. Three or for flights later with the piro rate turned down to my usual speed and the pitch evened out and l already feel at home with this heli. Just to make life perfect the forecast is very good for tomorrow.
