I've been having some tail issues after loosing both the pin and ball on my stock pitch slider. I've replaced them w/ CF rod, but still tweaking this mod. The TBs before these incidences felt more locked in than stock, but my tail was perfect then. Since my issues arose, I've had tail blowouts and have been going back and forth from stock to KBDD. The KBDDs are a prototype ATM, but they should have a closer product for pilots to test next week. I'm looking forward to this.

I hope this answers your ?...

Here was my first flight this morning.... On the very next flight my tail servo popped off. I recommend checking out the thread and making sure this isn't going to happen to you: https://www.helifreak.com/showthread.php?t=432301 .


Without further ado :

@ WonderUnder

Nice little flying spot. Must not be 100 degrees where u are. Shoot, our dirt will do as much damage as concrete ro a heli aTM.

Thanks for sharing and keep up the nice flying!

that's my front yard and it's definitely 100 degrees out there. fortunately, the trees provide decent shade so it doesn't feel like burning death. It's not enough to stop me from flying. =)

XtReMe98, I thought you were going to PM me for flying today. I was going to bring a better camera to film it for you. Flying again tomorrow?

Not my flying or video, but I found this from the list of great pilots I subscribe on YouTube. Very nice smackdown and 4-point. If you want a130X already, you'll most likely want it even more after watching this.

Not flight camera. I'm going to try my Nikon D7000 DSLR. Have it for 16 months now but haven't used it for video much except for travel ones. I don't know how well I can track such a fast-and-unpredictably-moving subject with the LCD screen while taking video though and how well the 3D-tracking auto-focus work for video recording. I'm more comfortable tracking fast-moving subject on stills thru' the eye-piece (too bad can't do that with video recording). Obviously, I can't track my own flying so you can be my guinea pig.

Mr. TNT...
Your 'tic-tocs' are great, stays in one position! I know the basic mechanics, but any secrets? Do you lead with collective, or lead with cyclic (elevator)? Any help / tips greatly appreciated! When I do them, I lose a little altitude each time.
Yes, this bird is so much fun...

Thank you for the comment I am still working on those
I lead with elevator like I am going into a back flip. The key is timing

Thanks XtReMe98 and your friend Shane showing us your new toys. They fly great!

Here're your flights I recorded using my DSLR. To everybody please bear with my shaky camera work and editing. I cut out the out-of-focus parts.
