Well I still don't have a working 6s charger so I just hover tested for a few minutes on the partial charge that my new packs came with. I think this thing is going to be an absolute blast once I get her dialed in.

Good job! Nice sounding heli isn't it. I maidened a 550 today too! The twin.

What blades?

Yeah, I love the sound. Can't wait to get the headspeed up and really throw it around. Should really growl. Blades are the Pro 3D fiber glass 550s. $20 from Helidirect. They look good and came perfectly balanced, but I can't fold the blades back to put them in the holder for transport because the proximal ends hit the bolt that keeps the blade grips on the spindle :thumbdown:.

Oh.. my 3D CF Pros did the same thing.. it takes surprisingly little sanding and they fold back. Everyone sands them.
