My suspicions confirmed. Just watching your heli flying videos always made me think that these things weren't very stable. Now, watching your right thumb makes me know they're completely out of my league... I think that the most important part of your control systems isn't in the components you design but in the fingers of the pilot. Now, what'd I do with my CX2?

it's so unstable b/c it's still in ground effect air, meaning there's not enough room under the heli to get the air it's pushing through it's blades out of the way, so it's causing a lot of turbulence. My fp honeybee can hover hands off for like 1 sec in my living room at eye level, and that thing is all sorts of out of balance.

can't wait for the msr

My personal take on this, is that it seems much better than flying after going to sleep.

My personal take on this is........What the hell does "before going to sleep" have to do with it? Flying is flying, whether it's after breakfast, at work, while taking a crap, who cares? We've seen dozens of this thing hovering around. Time for something different.
