Still breaking in the engine. I have a Multi gov but it's not setup. Flew on throttle curve and wow, still flew great. This is the first light 3D flight captured on tape.

My first nitro heli too. I was thinking the Knight 3D would suit my flying style more but I'm glad I went Hirobo. The SDX might be lighter than the Knight 3D. We compared it but we don't have a scale to prove it.

Weighed my SDX yesterday - 8.0lbs. It does not feel heavy in flight using the Redline 53.

Then the Knight 3D is slightly lighter or they're about the same weight. I've flown a Trex600 Vbar before and I thought my SDX felt really light on its toes. I was very careful not to push too much collective during the break in phase.

I think I got a winner here.

Congrats on the new SDX, will have to stop by the highlands and check it out soon. I saw Dale's at the shop and it's a nice heli.

Anthony,

come to the highlands next week, I will let you fly my SDX. With your smoothness and precise flying style, this is the chopper for you.

Anthony,

I'm very pleased and I'm glad that Dale talked me into the SDX. I was considering on a Vibe but made a last minute decision on this. No regrets but I think Dale regrets me buying it because I probably won't buy another heli ever!
