Original thread title: Sebastion Zajonz Trying to Break the Air with his 5.5 at IRCHA

Here are two flights by Sebastion Zajonz with his Atom 5.5 at IRCHA 2011. On the first flight he was running about 2900 head speed, and said afterword that the felt "weak" , so he upped his throttle curve by 3% and said "I hope it does not explode".

The flights are awesome! That man was really trying too "break" the air.

Here you go, Enjoy.



I would have posted these in the "Atom 500 Videos " thread, but as luck has it, no such sticky seems to exist.

Well, he certainly wasn't breaking wind or we'd see a reaction from the spotter ....

thank you and yep, heli is still not my fav, but it's a lot better now.

i have 14hrs on it according to my ikon log, and i flew it with a beastx for prob 30-40 flights before that. I bought it used in really bad shape. I crashed on maiden, i had the aileron reversed. Crashed in a aileron tic toc, i had a bad servo that was intermittent. But other than that, the thing just keeps on going.

A bigger canopy would help out a lot in the presence department.

I'm running $1 bearings on my motor and main shaft. I was always curious if it mattered, it doesn't.

Back from a bad crash thanks to the guys here for the parts. still have some tweaking to do but flying pretty good. the tail wants to go up in backward inverted flight but no big deal. the head speed is down a bit about 85%flat curve trying to work on my collective management. it had a little to much pop at 100% for me when close to the ground. here is the vid it's in HD nice and clear. thanks agin for the parts.

Here is a video of my messing around behind my house. The video is a little shaky because it was shot by my 7 yr old.
