3 packs this morning, it's nice to have a day off. Did some ff, and side in, slow turns, still scared to put it nose in and bring it back to me though. I did nose in for a few seconds. I can do it all day long on the sim, fly nose in right up to my feet and stop and land, but with the real thing it's different. I think I am gonna have to get the king 3 back together to learn nose in, it's not quite as intimidating. Now I have to clean the garage, so no more flying for a while. I think That I found my vibration also, I think my one-way is going I can hear a noise when it is spooled up and when I watch it on the ground It looks like the main gear is wobbling, it feels a little lose, but I didn't think it felt to bad when I put it back together. I'm pretty sure the main shaft is straight as it was N.I.P when I put it in, but could be I guess.

No its not the stick movements are all the same.

vibrations this vibrations that If you keep your shaft lubed at all times you will never get friction!!!

No flying for me today windy as hill but I hear the road calling my name the bike is ready to roll.

yes sir, stick movements are all the same. But with real bird I tend to over think it. It's a mental block I dunno. And crash costs are way less on the sim. My bike is probably going to sit this season out as it needs a battery, and new tires. And my other monkey, i mean hobby is eating up most of my budget By the way what do you use for lube? I have white low temp grease, WD-40 and about anything else that you could think of.

100% silicone spray, oils attract dust but dry bearings at a few thousand rpm gotta be worse than oily dust. Knock on wood I have yet to wear out bearings in a heli. I usually after a while just trade the heli.No Really I am the club President!!!

Hit throttle hold. That helps slow down the piro and then try to land it

Just flew Protos. It is better then before. It is not that fast now on flips as it seemed to me first. Or it seems to me so after I speeded up G5. In FFF it feels really like on rail. It goes without any input from sticks, no correction required. I am still not sure that my mechanical setup is absolutely right and electronics shows that it is not ideal. Waiting for proper tools to setup it better and still need some reading in FBL tuning. Looked like in flips, I got some interaction or maybe just my fingers. Well, step at a time.

But this is powerful a lot in comparison with other helis which I thought are powerful.

HeliKV, perform some flipping maneuvers that will bog the motor (tic toc etc). See if when you stop if it bounces on you. That I think is when I saw mine act funny. Other than that, my FBL was very stable in the cyclic.

Tic-toc. Heh. I am not there...Working on pretty basic stuff yet. And HBK is still my most flyable heli. I do not push myself too hard. Trying to enjoy ride.

Looks like I was wrong with tic-toks. Flew HBK several times and made these tics and toks. Not so perfect, but still. Motor was not bogged at all, which is good, but ESC (CC 25) came home hot. Battery hot as well. Hmm, I guess new ESC is required, otherwise it will cut off on me in the sky. What do you think?

I am afraid on Protos setup with my skills it will not be possible to bog motor. Scorpion, Jazz 80, TP 45C - quite powerful for my skills.

Helikv, that sure is a strong setup. I had a similar setup with my old protos and it was a rocket at 3k headspeed. Just tone down your headspeed to your liking.

You won't lose headspeed which is a good thing. Much more consistent response.

Thanks, Mrktplayer. Actually I followed your advise and run Jazz on 65% having 15T pinion for about 2600 HS. I wanted to change to 14T, but you said that one way on it can slip, so I decided not to change for a while, until I get used to heli and then to bump speed little by little.

Glad it's working out. The beauty of the Jazz is that you can run low throttle and still get away with it.

FINALLY had the weather and time cooperate. I got my first "spring training" 450 flight in today. Nothing fancy; just checking out the setup and knocking some rust off.

My initial setup is:
Alpha 400
Rhino steel 12T pinion
Dynam 30 ESC
HobbyWing UBEC 6V
Zippy-R 3S 2300 mAH 20-30C These things are 200g. SERIOUSLY thinking about lighter batteries
EXI metal head with EXI plastic grips. The metal grips had slop at the spacers causing erratic but not horrible tracking and vibes. The plastic grips are firm and tracking is dead nutZ.
HS65MG cyclic
Futaba GY401/9650 rudder
Cheap $8 XHeli CF blades
Cheap XHeli $8 FG canopy. Haven't decided yet if I'm going to strip it and apply my trademark "Day-Glo" orange. Kinda digging the red.

I also just got one of those 808 keychain cams. Editing and processing took forever, but I got a decent video with "PIP".
