Default My Mini!

Very pleased with my newly acquired Mini Protos 6S stretch. Re-did the whole bird as from received. I think it includes now every MSH and Lynx upgrade offered except aftermarket canopy, colored sideframes and turnbuckles.

Maiden went well - and as Sade would sing, this is one "smooth operator". All up weight is 1.95 lbs with the 1300 6S and canopy! And a tote full of spare parts will assure many good seasons with my new bird.

Good work, but you're not really trying - what about the DFC head and Arms???

Mine are still my most-used helis

Ha! You caught me in a lie. The DFC does look cool! But at least I have the Lynx conventional grips upgrade. I have yet to figure out a way to get both upgrades on at the same time...lol

I like the port/starboard colors. It looks sort of nautical for that part.

Thanks that was kind of the plan. It was supposed to be reflective but at this scale it doesn't really seem to have much extra visibility. I'll tell ya, those yellow landing gear really help. Why the move to black only from the supplier I do not know.

Still thoroughly enjoying flying the MiniP. Such a smooth precise machine. I still get a lot of compliments on this old bird.

The lady caught the end of my flight here. Running 3200rpm governed on the YGE. 6S on Edge 353/62mm setup. Scorpion 2520, Mini Vbar, and MKS servos. Full metal Lynx DFC head and tail.

We are in the Warrenton, VA area about 5 miles south of exit 43 on 66.

You're not far. You could drop down 95 and take the 234 west or just jump on 66. Prob just under an hour drive for you.

Its a decent sized field. Pond nearby. We have a shed and a john.

Oh Ya these Mini P's fly great and nice and light weight too.

I take mine all over the central valley here in California, fly it anywhere I find an empty field.
Doing mostly big air flying with plenty of flips, rolls, loops, and elevator tic tocs. Starting to throw it around a bit more with collective vs flying level and then doing smooth maneuvers back to level.

Party on with the Protos, it rocks!!
