I went to the airfield this morning. No one there to distract me. I have been flying the mcpx for some time and am pretty confident with it. I can do loops, rolls, fly around inverted, etc. I have not been brave enough to even attempt that on my trex 500. I had been practicing going over about halfway with it though. Well today I decided to just do it. I pushed the right cyclic forward while giving it a small pop of collective and I was hovering it inverted. My knees felt like jelly but the bird did it with no commotion. Seemed much easier to maintain a stable inverted hover than my mcpx but I don't get the pucker factor with the mcpx either. Regardless, I hope I can muster up the guts to do it again and again so I can become as proficient with the 500 as the mcpx. I am by no means an amazing pilot but I have a lot of fun and am progressing a little every flight. Thanks for reading

Awesome job!!!!!! If you can fly around inverted such as figure 8's with the 450 then you are a better pilot than you think. I have been flying since August and I can hold the heli in an inverted hover, but am nowhere even close to an inverted figure 8. Im doing loops, flips, and just beginning to do rolls.

Fly it like your stole it!!!!!

Congratulations! One day I hope to have the guts to go inverted. Right now the flips/rolls are enough for me haha.
