Brave man!
The only thing I hover inverted is the sim.

I don't have any Italian machines...since I sold the Ducati
Considered a Ferrari, decided I would prefer a Porsche and ended up with a new Jeep Wrangler...go figure...just fits my lifestyle, and my budget, better right now - I am retired.

I only have German helis, except the newly acquired Trex 450.

I have a Goblin.. and those are I-talian. the 130x.. which is.. well.. a 130x.. and the Diabolo with its badass brother on the way.
I have another 3 years and I will be retired from the Air Force.. unless I stay passed 20.. which I probably won't do, the wife wants a house husband and I feel like I may get the job.. lol.

House husband is a great job...if it's for the right employer.

Mine is not too thrilled about me working either...even part time.
Ho hum, guess I'll just have to keep doing heli stuff all the time

Oh yeah, I do have a 130 still...well sort of.

My well sort of 130 found its way to the trash.. And new used 130 is hanging on the wall with a burned up motor. Ordered a new one.. Hopefully it will be here this week

Hippie, what connectors are you using?

By the way, I'm a Jeep fan also. Had an '84 CJ, '07 Rubicon Unlimited, '01 Cherokee, '09 Rubicon, and a '10 Sport Unlimited, in that order. I've time for another one, although right now, I'm really wanting a 5 ton MV.

Heli wise, I currently have a TDR, that's going into the SFR2 fuse, and my Shape 9.0. I was debating another stock TDR, the Goblin Speed, or Diabolo S, for now, while I'm still waiting on the new Henseleit speed machine.

I am serious.....and don't call me Shirley.

Hell yea you will!! You should build a Triabolo 800
I'm actually building 2 foam combat wings for me and the boy.. Waiting for the 800 stretch and the Diabolo S to show up. I'm also amassing parts for the S..

Ok, just wondering.

While I originally wasn't a fan of the looks of the Goblin Speed, that orange and blue one has grown on me. I'm close to pulling the trigger on one, but the TDR flies so well.

When's the maiden, our did you already?

Chet, I had to pull the TDR out of the SFR2, so I redid my lowering job. It's a little extreme now. Lol

Now that is low...I really like the look...might have to take mine down farther.
The only thing is it makes the distance between the skid pipes very narrow, landings have to be precise, and I'm not always so precise yet.

Why did you pull it from the SFR2 fuse?

I had a little accident. I blew the rear section of the nose off(behind the swash), and it got into the blade grips.

Now I would like to know how did it happen?
There are three pins in each side holding the front of the fuselage and I think it is impossible to come out in fly even if one of the screws comes out (happened to me)

Yeah, not thrilled about it, but didn't lose the heli which could have easily happened, so I'm not to upset about it. The rear is not damaged and Rick thinks the front can be fixed, so hopefully have it back in the air soon.

Not with mine. Mine doesn't use the pins. It has a groove, maybe 3/4" wide, in the front section, that the rear slides into to lock it. Honestly, I think that I was building up to much internal air pressure with my inlet that had no direct outlet causing it to blow out right behind the swash. I can't see any other reason that it would happen. I've been flying it harder lately, and it has never been an issue until the last few flights. I had actually used tape on the rear this time, though, in hind sight, probably in the wrong place.
