Around 2:55 I have a stretch of fairly continuous flips and rolls. Making improvements with each session!

I scored a Blade 300X canopy at a very good price and what do you know! It fits the 230S very nicely!!

Check these out.

Really like mine, only problem is that I don't always wear my contacts so can't always use them.

I use an old headband flashlight strap, removed most of the components from the broken headlamp to make it lighter. Then I open the GoPro case, lay the thin strap inside, shut the case and BAM herpes...I mean headband.

Usually put something soft between my forehead and the "GoPro"
my GoPro broke and I got a cheap Xiaomi Yi that's working pretty well.

Would a soloshot work for RC flight? I've never looked into it

I've seen some people post with mixed results. Pretty sure it has some problems with the high rate of speed and direction changes. Don't think their tech is "quite" there yet for our use.

My boom ripped off once...so I shortened it an inch and it did it again haha
I'm going to make a carbon boom for now with what I got.
Same weight as stock...see how it flies when the rain stops and I get that 3rd wire soldered back on

Only reason is I have to wait a week to get a new boom. I gotta fly!

So I got the blue phase soldered up nice and shiny. Red and Black have been soldered once, Blue twice now. I booted up at work to spin it up, I was indoor, it got angry at the prop wash right away so I hit THold. Main blades skipped the ground a few times but stayed upright. I then proceeded outside where it has been raining but finally stopped. I powered it back up, went to lift off and got the spins. I rested it down, saw the tail rotor not making a smooth rotation and started spitting out smoke....damn wtf just happened.

Was it finally just time for it to go?

Did a drop of water cause it?...doubtful as I've flow it in rain a few times.

The tail held find when I was inside and I highly doubt my little main blade scrape would cause that.

I'll upload a videos of my last crash but...guess I'll get a new motor coming.

I will double check to see if it was indeed the Blue phase that fried since it was soldered twice.

Looks great!

I've looked at them countless times but they always seem to be backordered. I guess maybe its time to just put an order in and see when they show up...

Same here! Even though I'm working on my own custom kit I would like to get one here sooner than mine will be finished
