Lol, I will once you make proper use of the space you have, could have so much fun in that clearing. Reminds me of that flight I did in that forest once, fun times. Or like my friend used to say, "Eh, this is a bit tight for a 300".

Flying outside the bounds over the trees stresses me out and doesn't look fun at all, especially considering how your L600SX ended...

Otherwise, 7S looks good, seems like a nice step up from 6S regarding achievable RPM. Quite a bit more powerful than mine. If you play your cards right, this can be an excellent trainer for collective management. It's limited in governor overhead but runs RPM high enough to do 3D for the given weight, but also requires some care with the available power.

Maybe in 20 years I'll be at your level and be the ripe age of 65! Whoo hoo. I'll probably be on the skill decline by then and it'll be like starting over again!

Well, I'm a dumbass. No wonder my 7s felt like dogs. And my other flights on the tdf and l600 were shorter than normal.

For some reason had my charger set to 3.8v charge. Must have jacked it up when setting up storage.

I kept thinking my start voltages were very low lately.

Nice 9 minute flight on the l700 this eve with my 5000mah 12s. 1450 rpm. Just beautiful.

I'll try the 7s again with a full charge next time! 😏😏

Awesome time on the l600 fpr 8.5 min at 1500. Man I love that heli. I'm not as worried to fly and crash it. There's no more fun than an awesome flying helicopter that you're not worried to crash. Glad I own 2! My v1 600 is the best $250 I've ever spent

Do you ever venture below 100ft, lol? I would fly that thing just below the tree lines and fully use that cleared area. I hope you didnt fly your 4M that high.

I have almost the same space, but I never go above 100ft. I have to keep it low enough that if I get it stuck in a tree, my bucket truck from work can reach it.

Yup. The 380 max goes high too. Can't fly that low. The stuff in front is well above 12 feet high. That cleared area only looks clear. Many tall bushes, small birch, larches, etc.

I do orientation work with the 380 to 600 only in the yard grass area. Nose in hover, reverse circuits, etc.

Winter is coming. Lower! Lower! Lower! Way more visibility when stuff and tress loose their leaves.

In mid May to June I go through a small shock as the tress fill in, plants all start growing and suffocate my flying area. Takes a few weeks to feel "ok" again. It is historically my most crashy time.

Should I buy a bucket truck? I feel it may be a good investment!

We need to have a heli party here. Get Jonas flown over, Ben, Tony, Ravo, etc. Make a bonfire and fly all morning, day and eve!
Be ready to crash!
