Re-entry into AP

Posted 02-25-2008 at 02:32 AM by Whirly-Girl

My first go-round with AP nearly 2 years ago was a minor success. I bought all top of the line equipment and I loved it! I had a beast of a machine: a Bergen Intrepid EB swinging 810mm blades, a G-26 engine, and JR electronics. I used a HeliCam Solutions Pro 60-3x underslung mount and was taking pictures with my Canon S2 IS camera. All in all...a great setup!

But, some good things come to an end when you have family situations arise. You see, we lived in base housing at the time...unrenovated...

today on my third attempt at flying this thing I had success!! in fact I put 2 packs through it.. even had a few times where the wind gusted up a bit and I handled that with very little effort.. I guess the countless hours on the sim paid off. as soon as I get the pics of my heli in flight emailed to me I'll post them.

Anyone heard about product recall for the new JR JR DSX9 2.4Ghz in Japan/Hong Kong?
