4 packs, vid and a couple pics forthcoming. I loooove the fact I can charge and be flying again in less than an hour. Used to be six hours for one pack to charge, now I can charge 4 within about 2-2.5 hours. Yeeesssssss!!!!!!
I have a yaw when going form + to - pitch during flips. Maybe gain, maybe belt tension, maybe ccpm interaction.

2-2.5 hours even feels like a lot these days. With a good charger and a parallel board and you can easily parallel charge six 3S packs in about thirty minutes at 2C. Most batteries these days are rated for at least 2C charges, many up to 5C. Of course I generally don't go over 2C unless I'm in a real hurry.

The iCharger 3010B (1000W) is excellent and not too expensive. I use it at home with a 500W power supply. On the other hand it can also easily parallel charge 3S packs all day at the field running off a 12V marine battery. Off a battery I try to keep it under 10A but that's still enough to parallel charge two 2200 mah 3S lipos at 2C (8.8A) with room to spare. With this setup, given a few minutes between flights, you could easily fly back to back all day long with 5 or 6 packs.

Maybe thumbs..
Kidding, sort of. It's amazing how easy it is to give a little bit of rudder without realizing it when you're pushing +/- collective.

I think after my next crash, I am going to try a stretch. I was unable to find a mid size belt, so I'll run the same one you do.

It's not fair.. I like both canopies for the 450x, and neither canopy for the 300x. I guess when I smash my grey/green 450x canopy into the ground it'll give me something positive to think about..... I get to buy the yellow canopy.

Nice looking chopper.

LOVE this canopy. I ever/when I bust up my custom Fusuno this is my next one.

My EK is nice on cloudy days but my Fusuno is a glow bird on sunny days.

Visibility is the best I ever had. White is unbeatable in most cases. Yes this are Warp blades. They are lighter and better FBL balanced than the Tarot one.

Nice, I just might steal your whole look! Hope you dont mind. I have an original canopy that I might rattle can white just to test it out.

Ive never seen the Warp blades with the white ends and the W in them though. I can only find the solid black/CF ones.

If you want to add strength to the stock canopy and go flat white a good option would be to use white plasti-dip and possibly the plasti-dip glossifier. It'll add a couple of grams (not as much as a fiberglass canopy) but it will be way more crash resilient. Spray it inside and out for best results. The best part is it can be peeled off if you don't like it or want to change the color later. To expose the canopy "window", let it dry and then use an x-acto to score around the edges of the "window" and peel off the plasti-dip....no need to use masking tape! They do sell it in a few colors too, but you can spray paint over it to add color. I was able to pick some up at Home Depot. I did the mCPX BL canopy this way and it is pretty much bullet proof.

Thanks to Chris B. (JustPlaneChris) from the RC Today Show for turning me on to this. Works like a charm.

I dont mind lol. You are not the first I am always happy to see some cool styles.

You will not find those blades either they are painted as well. It are my initials "M" "K" .

This is a great idea, one which I may use some time in the future. For now, I live in Honduras, and finding stuff like that at local 3rd world hard wear stores is pretty much impossible. Im actually on leave in the states at the moment, but I don't think that I can take that on an airplane, checked or carry on.

Ill just have to use plain white rattle can paint. maybe I can find some Kryoln, if I get lucky.

I'm really liking the yellow canopy. My eyes tend to see yellow best in most lighting conditions.
