Great flying!

I've done more damage to electrics at 2" off the floor!

Did any skill come into play to lessen the damage?

Awsome flight by the way.

Looking good

Sounds like you need to program in a throttle cut on a switch. Easy to do on a DX7.

therustyaxe,
Hit throttle hold right away,help's keep damage down alot.

David Blain,
That's good to hear.Ive been to a few funfly's but alway's chickened out haha.I did the pre-registration for our big one ( https://rc.runryder.com/t623415p1/ ) so there's no backing out now .Im still planning on going to your event (Orlando Blowout) as long as thing's go as planned and IRCHA is a must this year.2 week's away from flying with a ton of people and my knees are already knocking LOL..

skytrekin,
Not use if I can because all my switches are used/taken up ..

Thanks again guy's.

Lon-
When you "Event" fly the game changes buddy!
Your confined to a selected size fly area and/or called the "Box".

Get your game on, go put the heli down and focus on one thing-
"It's just you and the helicopter, fly your routine, stay in the box"

Everything else will fall into place.

When your focused, there are no crowds, no cameras, no one cares just fly for you and give it all the H*ll you can give it.....

In closing, "IF" you have to crash you might as well do it in front of a crowd and make it look good buddy!

Get to as many fun fly's as you can buddy!
When your all warmed up after this summer-
Start making plans to come to the biggest event south of IRCHA
The "Fourth Annual Orlando Helicopter Blowout"

If you haven't seen the videos or heard any of the the stories, It's all about the hardest flying with all of the "Best of the Best" for three days.
(IRCHA is a crowded freak show, I've been there, This is 300 pilots just doing it laid back and having one last weekend of the year) !!!

Orlando in December, Now that's a Christmas Present!!!!

You will never be the same buddy after attending!
