Thanks friends!
How are you finding the stability and tail authority?
I still have some fine tuning to do to tame down control inputs a bit (especially on elevator), but overall stability is pretty good. I only have two flights with the new M-blade mains, but I really like they way it felt in those two short flights. Tail is not as good as I would like with these tail blades (M-blades, symmetrical, 160mm). There was a few times where I experienced some LTE (loss of tail rotor effectiveness). I have pretty much determined that I will be replacing these blades with some semi-symmetrical M-blades at 165mm.

Taking it to a big show in two weeks and plan on getting as many flights on it as I can over the 2 days I will be at the event. Will get a bunch more flight videos!

i found that going back to flybar is more beneficial for scale flight and handling characteristics, also for ground taxi you cannot do it flybarless

Thanks friends. I apologize my videography skills leave so much to be desired!

I disagree. With both the CGY750 or Bavarian Demon, I have not experienced any adverse or unexpected behavior ground handling characteristics on any of my heli's.

I have been told on many occasions that I live in a fantasy world, so that probably does explain it!
