Pitch Curve allows a variety of response levels depending on the reaction desired from collective stick movement

The start of June! Summer begins???

They say that after Memorial Day, Summer begins. Umm, really?

My heli update;

My Synergy N7 is now performing awesome! I switched to 15% Wildcat fuel (now made by Byron Originals) and just a slight needle adjustment was needed. So my skills are what’s left to improve…LoL! The Rave, on the other hand, after replacing my original Rave, the electronic decided to act up, specifically, the tail servo. (Recap)I managed...
