Nothing special, first flight with a non micro heli so I was pretty nervous. Still had the jitters. Flights after this are getting much better! doing some Mild 3d now. this thing is incredible!

Great job on the wiring layout and flying in a tight area.

No, just tipped over at the very end of the auto there. I was trying to put it back in the spot I took off from... FAIL! LOL so I was stretching the last bit of energy out of the disk to try and get it there, nothing left for stay upright!

Hehe, nice landing anyhow, much better than I've ever done with my X3 (all I've done is a short drop from a few feet because I'm too scared to do what I do on the sim

The X3 Autos OK it doesn't have a lot of hang time, but it has some head left at the bottom... The Lynx blades are pretty good, I want to try some more, like the RJX Vectors, I think they will give it a bit more float!

You running 235s, so I might wait till you have some 350+ before I tried them, especially if you kinda new to autos...

I used to auto every flight back in the 600N and 700N days, the nitros had really free heads, and lots of lube

I suppose you're right I bet it has more hang time with 350/360's. I plan on picking up a set of Halo 360mm so we shall see

I was gonna try some auto's with my Hurricane 550, until it had a mechanical failure and a boom strike and it exploded...

I have flown it down there, but it is kind of iffy with the pitch I run... The tail is only just holding on at 2900
