Turned out pretty good where the area is about a thousand by 500 in a almost triangulated space.

Heli is fbl 450Align se modded, gopro hero 2, no post editing. I'm standing at the far left in the shade and the heli went up about 60 ft in this pic, with a steady 20km wind blowing it away from me a bit. The orientation is almost perfect n/s/e/w, right side being east.

Passers by were nice enough to heed the heli at a distance and no one asked any questions, dogs were kept back until I packed in one battery later. I use almost the whole space so it would be unfair to fly while other people wanted to walk their pet, lol.

People instinctively know helis are cool but have that nasty bite. Anyone willing to master one deserves respect as it takes a special ability to fly one well and in control.

my aerial photos have been held off due to a tail vibe, likely from mis matched blades. The come from the packed pair but aren't balanced perfectly to the hundredth gram, tail's also.

You got a jewlers scale? Also pay attension to the lenght of the blades from the bolt hole to the tip, and compare hole to root. I've found some off big time.

Your shot looks great.

No doubt got to be on p's & q's and rest of the alfabet when aloft. Also take off and landings can be fun.

Thanks,

With only a 450 as cam ship vibes are a worry. The pic is exceptionally detailed with no blurried lines from vibes on the heli.

Vibes have returned, I want to do more ap, blades were statically balanced rather than a jewelers scale which I don't have. Almost was ready when the tail fin fell off due to a screw breaking off on the tail case clamp. One hole is stripped and now the other has some threaded wire filling it where the screw broke off.

I watch the tail fin to see if there are any vibes. When it's perfectly straight at all times the heli has no vibes, it's ready.

Here's what I grabbed this morning. Wind started to pick up and heli was stable looking in the air. Still have a vibe problem on the keurazzee kusto se resulting in mis-shapen radiuses of the perimeter, better luck next time, as they say.

Lighting is a little shaddowy with the sun light but I had to get something before long. I had planned to get this a couple of weeks ago but things weren't perfect.

Had a curious Man with his son (far right) come to investigate, and that's me on the dirt in black.

NUMERO UNO of it's kind with plans to do more in the future.
