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!!

    Nice! Congrats!

    I bet you'll like flying without the extra weight much better.

    I took mine off today for the first time and practiced hovering tail-in in the garage. I was nervous at first, but it seemed to fly better without and I had no problems.
