Default Some Forward Flight and Flips with the EXI450

This is the first forward flight since the rebuild.

Specs:
EXI 450 from Xheli with upgraded metal head and tail
KBDD Tail Blades
KBDD FLybar Paddles
Align Pro Wood 335 Main Blades
Tower Pro 9g Servos for Cyclic and Tail
GY401 Gyro
Just Go Fly 500th Motor
Exceed Volcano 40A ESC
Beam Carbon Fiber Tail Control Rod ($4 for pack of 2!!)



I gotta say, I REALLY like the KBDD paddles. It tracks very nicely in FFF. It's hard to tell from the video... especially because the sun was low in the sky to my left and I'm not totally comfortable with this thing yet. It's a lot more responsive than before, so I'm kind of un-learning some old habbits.
