I flew both my 7.2's a couple flights each. Tuned on another for a Friend (ITGUY) I think is his helifreak name.

I'll go next.


I polished the tail output shaft and replaced the tail pitch slider on my Chase the other day. The slider was binding during reversal of travel and causing jittery tail behavior.

I know some people have had issues with getting their copy of this heli to fly right, but I'm in love! This thing makes me look like a better pilot than I am. It's just so nimble and it's moves are all so very crisp.

yep I have a chase on the build table now...
From the Box the swash was bad..
I also have a lot of play the my main gear that drives the tail..

My tail on mine is sticky where it moves to the tail hub area.... So need to work that out as well.

My 5.5 is a 640 Now.. With a 3 blade tail... Its a MONSTER ! with a MX750 motor power plant on 12S under the canopy

I worked on getting the new iKon2 FBL tuned on my 7.2 today. I need to get the flip and roll rates back to where they were with the ar7200bx.


Even with it not exactly where I want it, this heli is awesome! Rock steady, and it has great presence in the air.

It was actually nice in ohio today and I was able to get in 5 flights on the agile 5.5. I almost forgot what it was like to fly when your fingers aren't frozen. First few flights I took it easy with big loops and hurricanes. The last couple of flights I just smacked it around a few feet off the deck and ended with a huge auto
I love this heli!!!

So after putting about 25 flights on the Chase this weekend, my X3 just isn't seeing any flight time. The Chase just turns and performs so much better. With the simplicity of single 6s packs, this heli is grab and go.

I also put 8 flights on the Agile 7.2. I'm still trying to dial in a headspeed that gives me a good combination of snappy control inputs and decent flight times. The field where I take it is a bit small to really let it stretch it's legs, but it still is a hoot to get up and into the air.

I moved mine on the bench to make room for the 500 for a preflight. I'm still waiting for parts to shoehorn a Goblin 380 swash on the Chase. I doubt I will try a 4 blade head. I doubt the drive train could handle it.

I just installed 2 4400 6s packs in the 6.4

WOW .... I like the times I get now... the 3400 were just a little lite... these are a little heavy..... I think 4000mah 6s packs would be the bee knees . . .. .

JR DS21 servo seized mid air on a high speed pass () on my Chase 360. Result? Broken boom, main blades and plastic servo cases broken!

All is not lost though, as I was looking for an excuse to mount the extended Protos boom, a new 600 tooth MXL belt and 420mm blades for a home-grown Chase 420 stretch!

My second one is currently awaiting for a T-rex 500 540 tooth belt and 380mm blades in order to be stretched to...you guessed it, 380mm!

My new Ikon looked like a CC ice 80... SMOKE !!!
I never told anyone it died ......
So installed the E-bar and in no time was up and running... Liking it so far .. more tuning needed. Hope to get some air time this weekend !

Flew the hell out of my agile 7.2 this week. Thing has almost 200 flights on it and still going strong. Its my go to bird. Had to replace the belt last week but otherwise its still holding up. Wish more people flew this heli because its so solid and durable, especially with the trusty old vbar in it.

Changed a servo on my KDS Innova 600 today then tested and got a smooth flight although with some slight wobbles in Naza H's Atti mode but no wobble at all in nomral mode though. Will test again tomorrow and reduced some gains.
