I've been a kick butt pilot for at least the last 6 months... well... at least on the sim I've been a kick butt pilot.. recently, I tightened up the sack and took the sim to real life... today... I put a lot of the sim into practice...

today, first pack.,... I was doing stationary back flips...second pack, I was doing loops...3rd pack was a combo or stall turns, banked turns.. loops, rolls, and flips...I even paused it in mod back flip to an inverted hover for a good 10-15 seconds...

I crashed the hell out of it almost totalling it.. it's back together now and if anyone wants to buy it, let me know and I'll make you a good deal on it.

made some progress today

today was a perfect day for flying... 75F.. no wind.. and no blinding sun... I left my training gear where they belong... on the ground! I did some pretty stable hovering even with the occasional 5mph gust. I also tried my first side in forward flight transition to a hover and landing.. not did I not crash.. but I landed it dead center to the 6 inch circle that is spray painted on the ground

yep.. today was a good day for flying.....

missed it by >< this much

well.. took my heli out today to see if my belt riding up the side of the gear problem was fixed... it is.. seems that like the Trex 450's.. taking the idle wheel out of the tail helps a lot. burned through 2 packs worth of electrons and was working on my third pack when the winds picked back up... long story short.. my heli responds a lot faster now that I removed my training gear.. the blade tips barely hit the ground.. and I mean barely... but it was enough to bust them up... at least that...

took the gear off...

well... the winds died down a lot today so... I took my gear off and gave it a shot... who needs those stinking training gear... not me took off... hovered a bit...landed... yeah it was a little different.. and I could see how my heli was acting as it spun down.. but it taught me how to control it better on the ground.. my take off and landings were almost straight up and down.. very little side drifting I'm happy!!
