I got a little flying time in the back yard.

The wind was blowing pretty hard, with gusts from every direction, and I am amazed how big she flies.

Hardly had any mechanical to do other then getting the tail rotor set with zero trim. The swash was perfect using the mesurements in the manual minus 2mm, so I could get +12/-12 on the pitch.

Still have some work to do on the radio, but so far, I am amazed at the stability. I didn't even have to adjust the tracking.

I am going to love flying this bird. Why the hell is it going to snow tomorrow?

It is real addictive. I read all the reports of how stable it is, but they are almost an understatement. I couldn't believe I was flying a 450. It feels more like one of my .30's in the wind.

Yet it is tight and responsive. The wind was no problem. It kept me busy, but the response is so fast, that corrections are easy and precise.

Perfect for some F3C fun.

time for a F3C box in the backyard.

I am glad I got 4 - 4S packs and a duo charger, as I am going to be flying this bird alot.

Yah Stone for sure,
Noone gets it till they fly a properly set up Rave.
then its like holy god this isnt a 450 at all.

way bigger feeling than a 500. and it will fly in very high winds with amazing stability.

now go try an auto =D and the hang at the bottom will amaze you.
just like a big bird.

You guys think a 4S 18C 2100 pack would do well on this machine with the Scorpion -10?

I have 6 of those packs and all this Rave talk is tempting me.

Now it's going to be 3-6" of snow today. I need to fly the Rave.

Here is more Rave Porn. When I get a chance, I will take some better shots. I just did a quickie in front of the green screen last night.
