A HW160A listed right now.

I really like my rock solid 470LM. Undecided on whether my next build will be the 500 or 550 - I am leaning more toward the 550.

Added a 300 cfx tail servo to my Fusion 180 to address persistent tail wag. Stopped the problem in its tracks.

Arggh.

A little TLC and maintenance on my 230S and 470LP, just in case I can ever fly this year.

Trying to fit Trex 500X landing gear to an older Trex 500 to keep the tail rotor out of the grass. Have an aluminum frame bottom plate. Gonna require some drilling.

With no place else to be, it is crazy how many projects I'm getting done at home. Today I burned the brush pile and pulled three stumps after installing some new heli storage in the garage.

Swapped analog servos for digital on a 450 Pro belt. Minor trim. Flys beautifully.

Today, am working on my oxy3 tareq, decided to tune down as my 4s batteries are going flat and I dont want to buy a new set. Pulled the lynx 3s/4s motor and replaced with 3s motor to save weight. With my flying ability, running at 4s scared the crap out of me anyway.

Lock down on Coronavirus has me:

1) Flying my Blade CPx in the drive way. It still flies great. Ordered new blades and a canopy for it.
2) Waiting on a new belt for my TRex 450 so I can crash it again.
3) Planning a new purchase of a Logo 480 Extreme
4) Watching Youtube videos of you guys flying!
5) Listening to my wife ask me what I'm looking at on the internet.
