Default First flight, finally

I finally got my 600 in the air today for one tank. Wow! It's even more awesome hearing that thing lift off than I ever would have thought, simply incredible. Nothing like being up close. I don't think I even thought about the tail, it seemed locked in very well (Spartan DS760/8900G). Also, these 8717's on cyclic do not hesitate to do what you tell 'em. Wow!

I take it those are your flight/crash numbers next to your models in the sig? If so, those are pretty good numbers. Good luck with the 600. I hate mine only because it now has me wanting a 700.

I've been either lucky or overly cautious, probably the latter. I do spend a lot of time on the simulator, which helps.

I'm trying to stay away from a 700, but it's so hard.

Well done on your 600 maiden.

It is a great feeling getting a nitro bird into the air for the first time.

When I first got to the field with my 600N, which was my first nitro and only second CP heli overall (the first being an RC-TEK Diablo), the thing was really intimidating me. The intimidation got worse when I had issues keeping the engine started (before I knew to lean out the low end needle a tiny bit). However, once I managed to get it spun up and got it in the air, my fears just melted away because the heli just flew so beautifully.

Experience is something you gain only after you need it.
I wouldn't mind social media so much if it didn't involve people.
