well psych me out, was flying my pro 450 customized out back earlier today, used up all the available airspace and came under the eastward pine, clipped some pine branches and rotor slowed down completely. I flick th and hear a clunk from a blade hitting the canopy, heard it all at the same time the 450 hit the branches and went sideways in the air from twisting under, then it hits the ground 10ft below.HOLEEEEEEEEEheli's on it's side on the dry cut grass with blades folded together. Check it over, unfold the blades, inspect for obvious signs of breakage and pick it up to bring it over where the thing can be spooled for bent shafts of any kind, no? you got to be kidding. Go over to a better spot to take off and to be challenging decide to lift off NOSE IN. A little worried I spool it up nose in and watch for evil tendencies in tilting over, none to mention as I fully get it spooled and s-l-o-w-l-y lift it from the grass into a very stable and beautiful hover, better than nose out lift offs. Wow, I never thought I had that in me and later like an hour ago now got the best flight in the back yard ever flying close to everything while holding it from clipping anything for it's life and bother (to repair in any form). So tenacious, so quick and controlled while flying in a tight limited space, flying in a few places I would not dare risk really however it was more than worth it (hint dangerous to heli), BEST FLIGHT in the back yard EVER, sweet.Heyo, we fly these little high tech toys to put a smile on our faces for witnessing a wonder of rc helis technology. When you reach a certain point in your experience where your fully aware of everything the heli is doing, that's when you can let the heli out for a real exciting time, sport 3d or attempting, nothing can stop you from taking the leap of faith to higher intensity flying.NO crash damage, today, nose in lift off with a very smooth controlled take off, very exciting. I'll get to the 700's when there's time and some healthy funds, got two of them and thinking of going 800 or larger for the sake of it with one,anyway, true stories.Have fun fans and ignores alike, I definitely get "it" now. All my helis are improved over stock with special personal tunings/advantages applied, definitely working, definitely worth the past aggravations (like getting banned from hf for sticking my neck out on certain topics the strict domain of hf resident "experts" ) not stock iterations. I'll let it be known I forgot what topics on the other site were the cause of concern when I did a recent search on a related topic and got the links to the one's of a year ago, man did I take offense to be called thupid, and you would too.
