Preddie gone
..he's with new owners now.. and I hope he behaves. He was flawless for the testflight in appalling conditions. I wish him well.

...you sell the one that's flying and keep the red herring :-(

Hope he doesn't read your exploits on the forums

You happy or sad? He was a family member for quite some time...

Very mixed feelings but I was getting frustrated and twitchy flying him..

He did behave today for the test flight. I walked the new owners around him for a total inspection, all the little niggles he's had and scuff marks etc and insisted on a test flight then their choice whether they walk away.

Weather was pretty horrible.. up on 'the hill' it must have been gusting around 35mph or more and I found I was shaking when I flew his circuits. I did offer to flip him if they would give me a chance to calm down.. but I can't say i was looking forwards to his rotors being vertical to the wind shears going on.. I was having enough trouble stopping him bouncing as it was..

daft really, I'd been out with my 12S earlier on (wind only in the 25+) and I've been out this evening working on inverted stuff with my 500 in winds just over 20mph with no nerves at all. so if that was the effect he had on me then better he's gone..

Preddie went with all his spares..more than i recalled i had..they sorta grow..

Good to hear he'll be airborne agian soon..really just a wire new rx thing in although I agree if I got a secondhand heli I'd pull it apart too.

Not sure I approve of the sex-change

However irrational.. when you get to the point that you get nervous flying a particular heli..then it's time to let it go..

..perhaps my bad.. shouldn't have flown her with PMS
