and put in JR8717s .06-08 ms. (maybe 6 plus years ago

Immediate huge improvement, wished I had done it much sooner.

Jumped to 30% FUEL and much better power & performance out of the engine. Now will see how my new Co-pilot adds to the flights.

BeastX was the big game changer a couple years ago.

Most recently,the OS105HZ-R.
I literally never use the word literally right.

I would also agree on the switch from nitro to electric. This made a huge difference in the amount I fly.

Thanks,

BobOD, making helis for me one day?

I asked Bob to make a 5mm Al450 shaft of Chromo. Bob,if you made the v2 450 Pro shaft and it was .020 wall (with the retaining ring on it) I could still use it.

Going fbl, but for a different reason. I was having trouble with inverted flight, did a lot of crashing of my 450 and was too scared to try it with my Rappy 50. Once the Rappy was fbl I flipped it on over and it was super stable. After spending time inverted on the Rappy I tossed over the 450 which is still FB and it felt stable. I have had the 450 inverted all the way to within inches of the ground and it felt stable. Really what the fbl did was give me a means to push forward with something I knew I could do but was always too nervous because of that bad rash of crashing early on.

Another item that is probably higher up than fbl was the sim. I know I would have walked away without the sim. I don't use it as much any more but it's there and every single thing I do on it is free.

Starting at the beginning of my heli flying days ten year ago... Changing from analog to digital servos on my very first heli, a JR Venture 30. Wow, what a huge difference that made.

In order:
1. Converting my stratus to Electric
2. Skookum 720-no more interaction drama!
3. Cheap power supplies for charging (I know, big deal right? 72 amps made charging 2 6S packs possible at 2C, which made fun go faster!)
