I ended up not taking it by the booth but did get a little advice (which I haven't tested yet) from Corrado to help with a tail shake in tic tocs.

Anyway, despite the minor tail trouble I got so comfortable with it in the first 5 or 6 flights that I did for the first time ever in real life chained together a couple piroflips. Definitely not very clean, but not too wildly out of shape either. I'm just starting to get the hang of piroflips in the sim but rarely try in real life. (I don't think I've tried a piroflip on my Max yet.) When I do, I usually just try a single one really high up and then don't push my luck anymore.

In my haste to tune and just having fun flying, I forgot to be nice to my 2 brand new packs. Charged at 2c and did lots of pitch pumps, tic-tocs, and a few high speed passes.

I can tell I'll be flying it a lot so I just ordered 4 more packs.

I think I want to switch to red/orange like I did my max. After flying the 380 in my backyard a few times I've realized that the yellow does not contrast so well with trees and grass especially when the sun is out.

of course then I would have to get matching main and tail blades. on second thought maybe I will just wait till I crash it.

I finally got a chance to work on the video for this build.

I added florescent red to my canopy for contrast. Helped a lot.

Nice build video I originally bought yellow too so it would be a twin to my max. I've pile drove my 380 a hand full of times and ended up getting the orange canopy for it and it pops so much! It's my go to color now.

Thanks. That's why I got yellow, too, but then I switched the max to red so they don't match anymore. Eventually I'll switch the 380 to red but just haven't bothered to do it yet.
