Well, since the Hummingbird is going the way of the Edsel, I decided to share this video of my fixed pitch HB. Flew him tonight!!!!

Despite the fact that my Hummingbird V2 didn't fly too well out of the "RTF" box, I quickly converted it to "separates" and dumped a boat load of money into him. But today, three years later and many many crashes, I still fly him and enjoy him every bit as much as the day he arrived. I owe a lot to this little bird 'cause I learned to fly on him. He was tough! But he honed my skills better than any sim could ever have done... and he's still hummin'! Today, he's a V4.

Anyways, here's the link to my latest video flying in my garage tonight!

Anyone else still flying your Hummingbird? Do you still love the little guy as much as I do?

Just had 7 flights on mine in a local gym tonight - V2 with V3 head and V4 landing gear. Using the Century 6ch RX, Century |micro gyro and the original mixer ESC.

4 flights using the 7 cell NiMh birdseed and 3 using the 8 cell birdseed battery packs.
