PostSubject: This hobby just keeps gettin better and better   Sun May 10, 2009 10:35 am

orange58 I just had my two best flights since I started flying. Went out early this morning, before the wind picked up and ran one batt thru my HBFP and one thru my Belt CP, and even though it was only one batt each, I just had a ball. Everything just went so smoothly. Both choppers performed perfectly, and the last few times I've flown have been great. gen150 A few days ago I experienced on of those "Click" days. You know, when something just clicks, and starts falling into place. I still can't hover nose in worth a toot, but I can fly fairly comfortably in all directions, at least with my HBFP. I'm sure I could do it with the Belt CP as well, but I'll hold off on getting too brave with that for a while yet. I always try to fly within my abilitys, and push the envelope only just enough to try to ease into something new. Always try to use the HBFP to learn and improve on before trying it on the Belt. Just had to tell you folks about it. I may tear them both all to pieces next time I fly, but for now am doing my best so far. And another good thing is that next week I'll order the last two components for my ES600. Got my gyro yesterday. Then I can finish the build, set it all up(with help from you folks) and get it in the air. excited I can't wait. smiley-happy057 Thanks for listening.

Ok, as promised!! Got the wife to take a couple shots. This heli is BIG!! THE ROTOR BLADES ARE BIG!!! Flys smooth, and fast. Much too fast for me just now!
Last week, The first time I charged my 6S/5000 zippy my IMax charger strated smokin, yea smokin, so back it went to HK!! Well that means I can't fly the ES withthe 6S batt. so I used two 3S/2200's they worked great!! I got 5+min.flight time!!!
Now its really just hovering mostly but still I'm very susprized at the time.
Anyway here they are, looks great up there!!!!LOL

Hey Fatdaddy, you're always talking about not being a very good flyer. You look like you're doing pretty good to me. That's pretty good altitude you've got for a noob. I'm just starting to get above 10 or so feet with my HBFP. Not about to try much altitude with my Belt yet. By the way, that's a re smiley-happy088 ally great looking heli.
