...when after a complete heli rebuild after a major crash the first test flight is a complete success! It's like it's brand new all over again! It pays to take your time and make sure the build, set-up, and pre-flight is good to go before flight. Just thought I'd share the happiness I have 2day!

Thats the nice thing about helis over planks. You replace the broken parts and they are good as new. Airplanes accumulate glue weight with repairs and if you suck at building they get less and less straight and fly worse and worse

Thats if your lucky enough to be able to rebuild it without buying a whole new plank. You gotta love the fact that we can just unbolt the bent bits and replace them

Sometimes I spend a week working on one before taking it out. Running it up with no blades, checking for servo chatter, anything loose, or vibrating, rattling, knocks screeching, you name it. I cant fly very good yet, just nose-in, side-in, tail-in, Forwards and a Little Fast Forward Circuits. That's it. Don't really care if I progress any further now. After I learned nose-in hovering and forward flight I was content. Now I get just as much fun out of setup, and tweaking the bird, trying different configurations. Seeing what wiring looks best. I have cheap stuff, but it's paid for.

The one thing I try to improve on during a rebuild is cleaning up the wiring. My current wiring looks OK, but it's not as good as I want it to be.

It is nice when you take your time and do a job right the first time and everything falls into place and your work does as it is supposed to do. That makes for a good reason to be proud of ones self. I love it!
