Default Maiden flight today. Now with video

Got the Jet Ranger airborne today. All went well and the heli flew great!

Thanks for the help some of you gave me. Without it, things may not have worked out so well.






It wasn't the best filming or piloting but lots of fun none the less.

We did get some video of it, just didn't have time to upload it.

Video is up now.

Don't laugh at my crappy landing.. lol Just need to get use to the additional weight and lower head speed. A little less wind wouldn't hurt either.

Bladerunner those are nice.
Can the Ranger with the floats operate off of water? They would work well here on the snow during Colorado winters.

Very Nice Jet Rangers guys. Working on my first scale project, so now I know what it takes to just get one put together, a lot..... When I get home I'm going to make my 450 jet ranger look these pics and videos before its maiden flight this weekend.
Is it possible to inspire confidence into pile of fiberglass, aluminum, and carbon fiber?
Or do I have too close a relationship with my helicopters?
Or is that possible?

I was really surprised how many hours it took to get this heli all together. Between custom fabricating the landing gear, building the platform the mechanics are mounted to and installing the navigation lights It took hours upon hours.

Definitely worth it for me.
Others outside the hobby don't share the enthusiasm I have for this Jet Ranger.
