Well, today was a good day. I took my TRex 600 for the first hover. I Gave it slow throttle and the blades moved out of alignment even though the blade grips were very well tightened.:shock: The heli shook and the blades eventually caught up and no vibration, just a smooth humming heli.:) It was pretty windy, but I was very surprised how little this affected this heli. The heli required no trimming and the tail was rock steady with no wag. I was extremely nervous before the flight:shock:, but once I got her off the ground all was good.:) Now I have flown a Blade CP Pro, Blade CX2, TRex 450SE V2, and now the TRex 600CF. The TRex 600CF flys incredibly smooth and easy. It took very little stick movements in a windy day to achieve a very steady hover. Now forward flight was a little bit more scarey, but not uncontrollable. I felt in complete control during the whole time. The only problem that I had, is that my DN Power battery pack puffed slightly only after one flight:thumbdown:. Noobs please listen, I bought this pack for about half the price of a Flightpower or ThunderPower battery. Well guess what, I now have to buy a replacement which would equal to the price of a Flightpower or Thunder Power battery:mad:. So guess what replacement battery is going to be on order. I will buy Flightpower or ThunderPower from now on:thumbup:. First off, thanks to Finless for the great build videos.:noteworthy They made a world of difference and it showed today on my first hover. I had two friends with me as spotters and their comments were that this helicopter looked very stable in the air, even with the wind. And as always thanks to everyone here at Helifreak for answering my questions.:hug: This also equally helpful on today’s successful flight. I have attached some pics also.
