My first build from a box, first 90 nitro, and first fbl. I couldn't be happier!

Lifted off into a hover, and it was perfect. Blade tracking was dead on, and no drifting. I can't wait to get the engine broken in, so I can wind her up. Grinning from ear to ear!

I just wanted to thank all who have helped me.

Moneypitvictim, JAWS, red_z06, JAy jordan2, Buzzin Brian, nickmaxwell (parts) and many others for their input, and most of all my wife (DaytonHeliWife) for putting up with the mess all over her kitchen table, and fire place!

Thank you!

It's always fun and maybe a little bit of pucker too. LOL

Tell us about your setup.

Yea they are! I had so much fun and got a little carried away flying really big air and blasted my ENV right through a powerline. Powerline won.

Look at it this way. It will be worse if the ENV won.

Power lines, and heli in the same sentence is never a good thing. That sucks to hear KennyS You get it up, and going again?

Yes, thanks to DaytonHeliWife for not putting us on the street after the repeated mess we did on her kitchen table!!!

(Sorry Kel)

But she flew and ran perfect right off the bench, AND WE DID NOT NEED ALL THOSE PILLOWS ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE HELI AFTERALL.

@ KennyS. How many parts did you need? Lol.

@ Chago. I'm really glad we didn't need those pillows as well!
I can't wait for a nice day to fly her some more. It's been a long week at work, and it's not over yet.
