Ok, times up on the challenge.

All video will be reviewed by Slider and myself and the winners will be posted tomorow at 9pm central time.

Although I will say that since TJinGuy was the only newbie to post a video and therefore wins the rookie challenge by default.

Congratulations TJin.

As for the Others, tune in tomorow for the announcement.

Thank you to everyone who posted their attempts.

Woohoo... well kinda... winning by default is bitter-sweet

I would like to have seen some other newbies. I know I suck compared to the the masters like fender, but I would like to have seen how I stack up against the other newbies. Plus it would kinda be nice to see where everybody else is in terms of ability.

Bring on the next challenge, I am ready to challenge myself. Well that is unless it is something like nose-in or FF or well, anything besides hovering

Congrats Chris! You should get bonus points for color commentary I too was hoping we'd see more videos so I could see where every's at, skillwise. That's something you get at a field and I miss the peer presure.

Not that I won anything on my own merit, but I thought I would show you what I had to work with thanks to our far east friends taking a long vacation, here is a pic of my blades. I have put about 6 batteries through them like this

I here ya! I think you honored Fender with the 'just fly it' attitude regardless of condition. During my video, my blade tracking was off more than a quarter inch and the new 11t pinion brought out a nasty vibration. The gyro wasn't holding and the tail kept drifting. I knew that once I started to work on it, I didn't know how much down time there'd be. So I flew as is, best I could. I got to work on it shortly after finishing the video and now I'm grounded waiting for parts

you guys..I really appreciate the compliments...but PLEASE...dont worry about where you are compared to me....let me tell you this...and this is NO exaggeration.......all of you are much farther along at your flying time than I was...I made the mistake of trying to get a BLADE CP to fly correctly,and being very anal about it(bad combination).....it cost me LOTS of time....3 or 4 months in, all I could do was tail in...and it was suspect at best....so dont put yourselves down or worry about..comparing with guys flying much longer....you guys are doing very well and comming along fine for the ammount of time you have in....I've been flying just about a year now,much longer than many of you,and I've paid my dues and you are seeing the tail end of that process...you should all be proud of where you're at...and have fun
