JC, you are a total wildman! That was a fantastic flight as well. What a great idea that was and even better execution. I was thinking if you do that again, traveling front or backflips would make for a really unique effect if you started doing them next to the boat. Would look way cool.

Curious - how did you guys do this, logistically I mean? Did you take off and land from the boat on some dock?

Now I usually do not watch 3D flights as I think they are rather boring...
But this one is different. I believe it tops anything I saw so far...
You make the tricks look so easy and graceful...
really worth watching...

Did anything ever come about in regards to the swashplate arm breakages reported in some of the threads?
I realllllly like this heli, want to know if the cause was addressed/fixed- if there was even an issue that is.

I had the swash mount for the arm bend in a crash but the arm did not. I think the arms are strong.

The way I read it was that he broke it after 2 mild crashes. Based on my experience I wouldn't give it a second thought. I did have my gears strip however (that's how the arm bent). I added a second shim and have been ok since.

Sweet! Thanks for the reply.
I have my eyes set on one of these after my KSE is finished.
