Great video, Micah!

Great to see everyone at the field today... Glad we enjoyed spring before winter tomorrow

@Nader: good to see you. Awesome that you finally found your way back to the field. Certainly hope that you will be able to join us at the field on a regular basis.

Some of you (Dennis C, Chet a while back) asked me where I got the clear shrink tube to make my old Turnigy batteries look pretty again.

The web site is www.all-battery.com. Look for part # 80125.

---
@Nader: here is how I set up my auto bailout on the DX8. If you are not comfortable doing these on your own, we can do this together next time we meet at the flying field.

In this setup:
- Switch F-mode is flight mode.
- Switch Hold is throttle hold.
- Switch Gear is Bailout mode with motor idling.
I do not use bank switching.

DX8 Setup:
- System menu switch select: Mix = AUX3, inhibit on others
- System menu flight mode setup: F-Mode = F Mode, Hold = Mix
- Throttle curves: as your regular curves for Normal, FM1 and FM2.
- Mix1: AUX3 > THR. Rate = 0%/X% and Offset: 100%, where X% is your bailout value (from 5% to 45%, Mine is 30%). Chose: N12HM.

After you have done this, you need to adjust the throttle travel on the DX8 so that it gets back to -100, +100 in the V-Bar PC software. If you do not do this, you will not get the motor idling during autorotation bail out.

You also need the proper settings in the Gov II tab of the V-Bar PC software: check/enable both the "Autorotation bailout mode" and "Idle during bailout" options.

This setup also allows me to have flat throttle curves for Normal, FM1 and FM2 (makes all three flight modes fully usable for inverted flying). The ESC arms if the throttle hold switch if on. The motor spools up as soon as the throttle hold switch is off.

I you try on your own, make sure to remove main and tail blades and test your setup copiously on the bench to verify that it works fully and as expected.

Do not hesitate if you have any questions.

Hey Chad.
No Alees' around that I know of.
It'll be great to have another new one to check out...we are getting quite a diverse assortment of helis lately.

Jim Swink I am very appreciative of all the help on the HC3SX.

I'm certainly glad I made it out today.
Looks like it's going to be a great year at Minor Park.

I am going to get my 600 set up tomorrow night and bring it out on Tuesday. Tired of issues with the Assault.

Chet - It is a sweet heli. A guy back home is a team pilot and he talked me into getting one. It will be my first quality bird which I am excited about. Hearing the TDR's and Logos and how quiet they are have made me realize how crappy my birds are. No More!

Great to see everybody on Saturday! Especially nice to see Nader. Nader is probably the best flyer I've seen here in the Kc area in awhile. And he does it all right on the deck. Awesome.

Yes, it was good to see plenty of guys at the field on Saturday! It was a nice day, even though my heli decided to lay down in the grass.

Micah, thanks for the videos! Pretty good for not having a viewfinder!

I'm glad that you new guys are having a great time too! We are happy to have you join us and be a part of this exciting hobby! HELIS ROCK!
