Got my SR today.Couldn't help myself.lol...
That puts the 500 a couple hundred bucks further back.Oh well.

The heli is pretty stable but not MSR stable.
The tail wags pretty bad on the stock,out of the box set up.

The radio is pretty nice but felt very alien so it took a one minute hover to get it bound to the DX7.
The stock set up had almost no negative pitch.
On the DX7 I have +/- 10 degrees.

The battery and ESC had JST plugs so I cut them off and put on Deans Ultra.
The stock charger was taking forever to charge.
With the Deans,I can use my AC6.
It's on its first charge on the AC6 now and has put back 290mA in 17 minutes.
That should mean 45 minute charge or so.

The heli is a little bigger than my 250 and actually has more pep.
The 250 is still on 2S though.

It's pretty fast too.
Right now there is zero expo on anything.
The gyro gain is way up at 81%.That strains the tail motor a little but it didn't get hot.
Nothing gets hot really.

The tail wanders a little in a hover but locks in and trails the heli good in FFF.

I've only been inverted for a few seconds to make sure it would do it.It will

I'm running out of daylight so it looks like the one battery is all I'll get today.The LHS didn't have any spares except one and it was $65.No freakin way I'll give that.HK is my next stop online unless maybe Xheli has a good 1000mAh 3S.Of course I'll check fleabay first.lol.....

All in all,I love the little bird.

Oh,CH5 is unhooked stock.I put it in GEAR to adjust the gyro from the radio.

The mix is backwards guys!!!!
E-flite swash plates move down for positive pitch and up for negative.
The rudder is backwards too!!!

Yah I hear the frames are tough on them, but I think they make a Red canopy also which be better to see in flight.

I'll look into the red canopy but since it seems I'm going to beat on this one,I might just spray paint it orange or something.

I have some really "Pretty" helis.
This one is just to beat on.lol....

Got the SR airborne today.
The Turnigy lipo and Pro II blades made it crazy,sick fast.

Had to adjust to a beginner pitch curve for a few batteries to get a grip on the speed and how hard it would touch down.

CRAZY!!!

I love it now.
Turned out the main shaft wasn't even bent.
Just an imperfection in the head.

So the crash cost was roughly $15.

The difference between the stock lipo and the new one is so drastic I refuse to use the stock one anymore.
I have to adjust everything from the gyro to the throttle proportions when I change batteries.

I'll take $7 shipped for the E-flite 15C 1000mAH 3S lipo.

You guys with tail motor experience should warn a brother.lol..
I was carrying it by the head and turned it on its side.That made the pod and boom spin around and the tail motor kicked on wide open to compensate the spin.lol...Scared the crap outta me.

lol...The stock battery is way underpowered compared to the 25C Turnigy.

You do reallize I cut off the JST connector and threw it out.Right?
I can send it with the Deans on it or with no connector.

Got the SR dialed in tight in rate mode.
You have to use ALOT of left bias in the rudder to hover in rate.
I have the rudder trim maxed out to the left and the rudder travel limits set to 73% left and 65% right.
Like I said,alot of leftward bias in the rudder.
It hovers perfect like that though and is a dream in FFF.
Now if these gale force winds would subside.....lol....

Oh,I forgot....I assigned the gear switch to gear and have the limits at 60%-0 and 40%-1.
I'm flying in Position 1 in rate mode.
I just can't get the wag completely out of HH mode in idle up.

A quick look at the difference in the Pro II blades and the SR stock blades.

The Pro blades are much shorter and wider and give it a much more crisp feel in the air.
They are also one third the weight as stock!

Great news.I tried to get it in before 2:00 so it would leave same day.

I got my Trex 250 today too and it came with four 980mAh 3S 30C lipos.

I ordered some Plasti-Blades for the SR.lol...Sorta like putting training wheels back on but it's been so windy lately and I've been working on nose in inside and those CP Pro blades disintegrate if they touch anything.

With 5 lipos and indestructable blades,maybe my hovering will sharpen back up quicker.

My forward flight survived the winter but my nose in hovering lost its edge for sure.lol....
