Who remembers watching this video thinking it was crazy and awesome? Seems like yesterday for me! Oh how sluggish it seems now!

Watch at YouTube

I would be very happy to fly a "Sluggish" flight like that.
At least I could see what he was doing. Todays hot pilots do so much so fast its hard to tell what they are doing.

Dunno about sluggish!
I cant make any one of my 6s v2's and dominators look that sharp

But i do remember my blinged out 3s 450 SE's being 'bog' dogs.

Oh for natural talent.

The length of that tx aerial put the vid into perspective thou

It's not ACTUALLY sluggish and 6 years ago it was just insanely fast but compared to what we have today it seems sluggish.

The 450SE probably tops out around 3500 rpm and I don't think you could get more than about 11 degrees of pitch and have any decent cyclic speed.

This is what we have today, 3600 rpm on 360mm blades and 13 degrees of pitch!:

Oh so very true! If that is sluggish, then I fly at snail's pace in slow motion. One day I might grow up and be able to fly sluggish!!
