Default What did you do with your Blade 230s today?

I made a JST to XT60 adapter and am using 1300mah batteries.
The COG is perfect and the heli seemed to have a little better response to the sticks.

I also put on a Blade 300 red canopy and it really gives it a better presence in the sky.

What kind of flight times do you get out of them?

I just did it today and of course it is raining so I did one five min flight in the backyard.

I will check out longer flight times and compare the temps of the motors and esc. I'm just worried that a eight min flight might get them too hot.

It plugged right on,it's a little bigger than the stock canopy but more visual in the air.

I don't see a reason to trim anything but it is close to the swashplate.

Hell, I can get 6.5 in on my stock e-flite 800s, flying in IU1. Think IU2 is slightly less.

Repaired it this morning after stuffing it inverted into the grass yesterday morning, the damn sunrise low above the trees got in my eyes.

Surprisingly, only had to replace two main grips, one link (lost), tail blade, and the main gear. This is the reason why I do inverted practice on this heli as opposed to others. Added another layer of clear packing tape on the canopy where it was ripped as well. There's a couple nicks on the plastic mains where they hit the grips, but they are fine.

I gotta get used to hitting rescue more often, though I was only about five feet off the ground when I got blinded.

Not a darn thing, haven't flown in weeks because of the weather It's either been raining or extremely windy I did charge my batteries yesterday because the "forecast" was for a decent day, well that was a bunch of crap. So all I've done is charge batteries and lurk here to get my fix

Rebuilt the head... Again. Only a feathering shaft this time, but it was bent enough for one blade tip to trace a 4 inch circle and the other a 1.5 inch. I seem to have a knack for plowing this thing in on its side.

I did nothing with my 230S today. It just sat on the shelf resting. Besides, as usual it was very windy once again today. I didn't feel like fighting wind gusts that are about twice as hard as they were yesterday.

Very nice! I notice that MH doesn't ship their frames assembled, but Lynx and RKH does.

I had no idea they came assembled. But either way you are going to have to take the frame apart to install your motor/ Electronics and make sure Loctite is on every screw.
