Another reason why rc helis are so amazing compared to all the other rc "its" 'cause even though my yard is small and the winds were gusting to 50kmh or 25mph (+) and after a noon of asking myself if it was worth it, went for a twofer, getting dark and still very windy. I had to fly my 300 again before it got too dark so I plugged in and thought only of not bad things, but not the greatest things, the small heli sometimes got buffeted by wind in the past but you wouldn't notice if I showed some vids. Sure, my yard has a bit of sheltering so it's not entirely wind and nothing but.

I guess I learned in windy conditions, my two favorite moments with of all things an esky coax. Some years ago before I got a cp hei and was mastering nose in flying I went to the driveway and got the wind at my back, then throttling the fp coax to hover nose in and facing me while the wind payed with it, I did all the right corrections and made the heli dance a happy hover like it was pleased to see me. Another time a gust in the back yard with the same heli flipped it completely, throttling it only put it into the ground, but it sure looked fun for a moment.

Only a few hours ago my 300 appeared totally unaffected by the wind. I flew it this morning and the air was calm, it really surprised me that the wind was hardly noticeable, I must be getting better, lol. The rpm is above 4000 on 4s, but it can lift at less than half that.

wheeeeeeewwwwwwwwww,,,,,whooooooooooooooooooooowwwwww, wheeeeeyouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu.

Camon, rc helis RULE.

I went into the local hs Monday and saw some dude with an employee go through his truggy, dirtee dirty dirtee, yuckers. No planks are going to take off and land in my backyard, yeah for the heli,,,,,,,,

They can be a pita keeping them flying especially after a crash and or electronic probs.

I almost forgot to mention I took my 450 pro v2 up for a little go around before the 300. Torque tube, dfc on the 450, the 300 seemed less stable, it's faster in ele/ail/pitch for sure.

no, my mistake, BIRDS ARE THE BEST. Why? What initially inspired me to look beyond obvious comfort zones of stay in type weather were in fact birds. Yep, saw a Seagull fly though the 40mph winds recently making adjustments as it glided sideways across the high winds, they don't care, they grew up in the stuff. Another little bird and I mean LITTLE so don't mock the fact that it seems I'm so obsessed with a 300 size heli only, was a Starling. I've seen other small birs do this also, fly through trees and branches without slowing down, wings tucked in and threading the needle, THREADING THE NEEDLE. Should I stay in and knit a cardigan? Nope, adverse conditions are stimulating and make wusses look like girly boys, grow some chest hair, be a man and go fly no matter how nasty it gets out there, you'll be the better for it. If my 300 can hack 25mph winds what does that say about anything larger, heli that is? It was gusting to 40mph all afternoon and that's what I risked being tested with at any time I flew my 300 yesterday 40 MILES PER HOUR with a mini, thing can do 108mph, what should I care what all those ignoramus's think, they'll get theirs.

My 300 is about to go 6s when I purchase the lipos needed to make it 6s, the motor is already in my hands, HIGH VOLTAGE, what are the merits? lighter components, and you like light right? lite as a kite, no wind no kite vershtane?

Remember me from now on as the guy who will make a 700 with 4000 rpm rotor , say it ain't so, a 600 will do. That'll get your fugging attention.

RC HELIS RULE? maybe so, just not all the guys who fly them.

one word more, I almost forgot rr existed when the boys let me back on HF, "and the builders rejected the corner stone", my helis are like nothing on this planet, good bye.

yeah I said that in fact because my 300 says good bye to high winds. I learned rc heli flying in wind two months after taking up rc heli flying a ways back, and with a hopped up indoor coax. My time has been put into rebuilding this 6s capable motor for my 300, all it needs is a fan on top, pretty exciting to think of it. Good BUY I was trying to say, that when I'm in a position to bring you the worlds most ???????? product you will never view the world the same after.

Rc helis have brought me to a stage where I can tear around the back yard full of hazards,,,,,, HAZARDS,,,,,,,, without fear, sometimes you just have to let your fingers make the decisions and follow through, your fingers are in command not your eyes, really interesting connection to make.

Autos with a 300? GOOD BYE,,,,,,,, DONE, been doing mini autos with my 300 for the past month or two, last year it plopped on the ground often (I've been reviewing vids of last years circuits).

Last year my 300 had a minpunch Cyclone motor in it, high torque ,high kva, two pole, not a heli motor yet it was used and at only 76%. Thing was so powerful in one vid flyby I estimate it covered 30ft per second with no bogging. I did run it up to 90% and got about 5000rpm, scared me silly. The numbers put that to fly at 130mph, hmm, little bird, hope nothing falls off.

The moral is don't under-estimate the small stuff. You know the saying, "Don't sweat the small stuff"? you'll know the effect of small stuff when you go from a 180 to a 700 and back.

In conclusion it was a MICRO sized spark that kept zapping my gyro sending it to the ground for the last time yesterday, I HAD A FIT. Went online and read up, ran a wire from the tail case to the ground wire on the lipo connector, went flying without a twitch, FINALLY. Where I practice right now, needed tons of landscaping, TONS, that's what I've been busy with and don't want to be interrupted by repairs to a small toy heli, jeeze.

not too hard to understand, a new season awaits.

Can get a similar effect by dropping a stone.
