A very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year !!

Yesterday I got in two flights before all the family festivities started! I started off with the Protos 500. It felt great to fly it in an open area, compared to the much smaller lot by my house. Then it was time to try the Compass 3D+. The new clutch works fine. However, the Compass felt very slow (and the motor is very rich right now). I attribute most of this to flying the Protos a lot, still...it moves slower. I'm starting to notice a power difference with electrics vs. nitro, and I'm liking it!

Now I wonder if I should get the Compass 6HV or the 7HV. Possibly sell the 3D+ for a 6HV. I'm becoming a power junkie. It wouldn't be too bad, I have the Protos that uses 6cell LiPo's in the 2600 to 3300 mAh range. The 6HV uses two of the same batteries, so I would need to buy a few more. Then the 7HV uses 5000+ mAh batteries, I would need to buy new batteries.

I guess I need to figure this out...but not right now. In the mean time...the temps is forecasted in the 40's. Looks like I will be getting a few more flights in today after church! This is the first time I've ever been able to fly Christmas Eve & Day.
