Sam, you uploading todays video so Bill can see it. He did an awsome job finishing it up for you. Seeing you invert it was awsome. You may want to practice with a little more altitude though. You were pretty low. I don't think you could have bank rolled that much cash for crashing off this winters snow.

Darn fingure hit TH and I didn't realize it. Buy the time I realized I wasn't under power I had lost quite a bit of head speed. Autoed it down a little hard and broke both rear skid brackets. CA didn't work toget another flight on it so I had to order a new set.

Do tell why the whiplash needs repair parts!
Steve was your son out drag racing and someone blew his doors off???
I got a flight in on the Frenzy today, its been so long that I had forgotten i lost the magnet for the governor. I did get a brown streak moment though after some pirouets! I found the magnet in my box where i left it way back when. I thought i had the fuel leak thing solved, but, I didn't so she was mighty oily afterwards! Next thing to check is the pressure line to the fuel tank.

It may have been a roll/flip or a flip/roll, anywho I know I was tense and bumped the switch. The switches use to be a lot stiffer but now that I auto my landing from low hieghts the switches are smooth. I just have to get used to that now.

Put my 450 FBL in big time today too. Counter clockwise turns aren't my best skill. I learned big time from that flight. Enough I was having a blast with my FB 450. Jeff thought on a few occattions I was going to crash it.

All in all it was a fun day.

Wow glad I did all my flying yesterday. Sounds like a few dirt naps today. I saw one when I went down to Detroit. Guy put one of those BIG DOLLAR Logo 800 Xtreme in. The heli itself is 2600 (looked it up on Ready Heli). Guy was devistated

I can't imagine the crash cost of those new goblins!! Any crash is bad enough, but when you start adding up the cost and have to start at 300.00 everytime will surely break the bank in a hurry!!
Just guessing, fuselage and blades.

Designed break away tail on the Goblin may limit crash cost.

Yeah, thats a good way to look at it Steve. Except at the casino, they let you win now and then to keep you coming back, for us its the cheap thrill!
Kinda like carrying your cell phone in your pocket on vibrate!! Ha ha!

Never mind, Just remembered the guy was going to maidan his Goblin.

Although I destroyed a bunch of stuff on my 450 I learned a ton from the flight. The old "If you ain't crashing you ain't learning!" applied to this flight. I went way outside my comfort box. Besides it's just a 450. Lol
Later I did a BIG circle with my fb450 same counter clockwise, the whole time after 180 into the circle I wanted to pull out of it. I just flew it through. I tend not to put in enough rudder on those turns. Jeff saw that. I will work on them.
If I was afraid of dirt naps I would still be flying tail in.

The crash prob is going to cost the guy a bunch of money but also apparently parts are pretty hard to find. He said something (which I can't believe) that the canopy alone is 300 bucks.

With all due respect to him, what I don't understand is in this hobby what goes up will come down. If you can't afford the possibility of it crashing, then don't buy it. Buy and have fun with what you can afford. I fly what I fly, is there better stuff out there...for sure....but too rich for my blood

Don't say that. I take it all and try to double it. Been a long time since I went to a casino. Them legal crooks.
