Blade CP Pro2

Posted 04-19-2009 at 10:40 PM by snake49

New heli pilot here! I've mastered my Lama2
now try to hover my Blade CP pro2. After third battery pack I landed hard with my trainer gear and since then the heli spins now. No visual damage how do you stop it from spinning? Trims are all centered:(.

HK-450 Flight #3+4: Finally in shape

Posted 04-19-2009 at 06:30 PM by nasukaren

Some nice flying this afternoon with my HK-450. I put the training gear back on. Figured out that the tail rotor shaft had wiggled itself out of alignment. Fixed that. Tightened the belt which had slipped (again) -- need to figure out how to get that in better shape. Also, the motor pinion kept slipping so put in a new one -- a 13T, hope it will be OK.

Switched blades to the stock black and yellow glass fibers. They actually aren't too bad. They were out of balance / weight but they...

HK-450 Flight #2: Backyard crash!

Flew the HK-450 around my backyard a bit but the bird still needs more tuning. I didn't attach the training gear as I should have and it was being very unstable.

I botched a landing and the blades kissed the dirt. Surprisingly, the feathering shaft was OK but the flybar turned into a wet noodle. The blade coverings on the end of my wood blades delammed a bit but I think I can save them.

On closer examination, there were more things wrong with it.....

ES600 Flight #2: Now with LiPo action!

Posted 04-17-2009 at 06:26 PM by nasukaren

Well, my 5000 mAh 6S pack from HobbyCity finally arrived so I could ditch the NiMH packs (which were never really an option) and could finally get around to flying the ES600.

Unfortunately by then the winds had really kicked up and so all I did was some low level hovering. But I must say that this is a VERY nice bird. It is extremely responsive.

I just wish there were more parts availability for it! I am very nervous when I fly it for two reasons: 1) the blades really sound...
