One of a few packs from today. Sorry for the shakiness ahead of time.

Good to see you back in the air with your 550 Ed! Looks good.

I was at a fun-fly last Saturday (Helis over Apache Pass) and was blown away by the caliber of the fliers there, one young man (an excellent flier) was 8 years old! It took me all day to work up the nerve to fly but I finally did. Seemed like I was flying in slow motion after what I'd seen all day. First time I've ever flown with somebody flying on both sides of me 50 yards away or so. It still was lots of fun.

Nice flight Big G!

I remember feeling the same at my first time flying "in front of others" at an event. Nerve wrecking. I was just hoping to not crash. Great flight boss!

Ed,

I don't know how you flew that, could you see the disk at all? I'm impressed! Our club is doing night flights monthly and now that I have two 550s I think I'll turn one into a night flier. Thanks for the reminder.

I'm up to flight #4 on my second 550. Had a little residual tail wag but it's flying so well that I started to push it a little. Also tried self level on the Ikon, that's really slick. Next time I'll do it from inverted.

Yeah I think the batteries need to be changed but I can still see the disc pretty good

Good stuff George!

I had a couple "pushing it" moments today. Uploading as I type. More than anything I'm doing things closer to myself and the ground....probably not too smart.....

Well, my 550e-v2 is back in the air and today I did my first low headspeed flight. It went pretty well with only one time where I didn't stay ahead of the collective and got too low. Next time I'll go a little lower with the head speed and see how that does. So far so good. I posted this over in the low head speed forum, but hopefully it fits here too. I've got to say that the sound of the blades at the lower head speed is very cool. I do go up to IU2 towards the end of the flight.

Nice ed, I'm waiting for the new mobius action cam, the new one I had just freaked out on me...

I hope to get the new one soon. I wanna be able to see my skills improve. Also I had a big crash the other day fling my 450x. It was my best flight yet. Mixing in a bunch of 3d.. Wish it was on cam. I could see what went wrong...

Here's my last low head speed flight, with the head speed even lower than before. Compared to how I normally fly it is very peaceful. Sadly, it's a boring flight as I spent most of the time flying tail first to be sure the tail would hold. Next time I'll do some slow motion 3d. The auto at the end is the first I've done with this airframe. I actually had a fair bit more time to fly as the lipo ended up at 3.95 per cell after 3:30.
