I thought so, was there back in October for the HFFF. The snow on the mountains definitely changes the scenery.

I had a great time, I'd love to come back given half a chance.
So much more to see, would love to go to Yellow Stone and Yosemite.
Although I think I wouldn't be forgiven if I didn't head east over to CHC with Tony and Will.

Nice flying by the way.

Just realised this morning that although the website I visited said the 500mx was 10 pole it was in fact 6 pole. I adjusted the Vortex accordingly and had 3 trouble-free flights. Don't know if that's the same for you.

Default First Vid W/The Spartan Vortex VX1e!!!

Nice flying EVERYBODY!!!

Here's the re-film from the other night. It was actually 3:30 AM and -2*F(the re-film) No crazy 3D like y'all can pull but I did manage to get the heli vertical and piro it both ways while up there(death spiral?) and some fast backward, which Im working on. Though it ends in tragedy I tried and the Rx tape failed and flung my Rx. The bottom line is I HAD FUN!!!

450L VX1e Spartan Vortex Brrrr (3 min 38 sec)

Nice looks way to cold for me I live in Nor Cal my fingers can't take the cold haha. Doing good to fly under the lights makes seeing orientation a lot harder.

@Paul yeah when you fly directly in front of the lights the heli dissappears for a second.
@Roger yeah 3:30AM after I forgot the sdcard the first round.. I had to get something on video. LOL

Here is the maiden of my newly modified 600ESP without all of the push pull links. This was literally the first few times in the air after the mod, and the fitting of a brand new VX1e, as previously it had a MicroBeast. Expect to be bored as this is almost literally the whole process, from fitting the battery to finishing with it flying well enough for the first pack.

To help you understand the fairly quiet audio, what I complain about is having gone out to do a maiden without my datapod. So I stop the video to go to get it, so I can adjust the main rotor gain, which was too high. Then I complain about the headspeed being all wrong as a result of fiddling with it to do a bench test last night without blades, where I set it 1500, 1700 and 1900, to make sure the switching was okay. I went for low numbers, because I was on the bench. Then, because I'm an idiot, I went and test flew with those headspeeds, and it was flyable, but not really good.

Anyway, here's a full maiden, minus a couple of minutes, between the edits, once or twice to tune.

Only corrected my headspeed, and tuned the main rotor gain down, otherwise it was stock. Only had one pack charged, and wanted more, once I was able to fly it at the end of the video.



Cheers

Sutty

I was getting fed up with the poor piro compensation on the stock 300 CFX. I went through the whole mechanical and AR7200BX setup from scratch and got some different packs to improve the CoG as best I could but it was still bad (I could do an upright pirouetting circuit with just tanking left rudder).

Loaned a VX1n from a club member for a few days to see if it was definitely the fbl unit. Straight away I liked the performance so much I bought another Vortex. Will be trying out the e. gov on the 300 this time instead of the YEP gov store.
