Got some much needed stick time in today. Too bad it suddenly went from blisteringly hot to hand numbing cold all in the span of a few hours

So, I just bought a used mCPX BL from a guy who works at the hobby shop for $140. He is leaving for Vegas tonight and wanted some spending money and I needed a new heli. Or did I?

So far I've bound it to my DX7S, set the T/P curves according to the manual, and hovered it in the living room.

So far so good! It sure sounds like a larger helicopter.

I've been practicing my inverted hovering on my Nano. Not easy but I am trying! I like to roll into inverted. What is everyone else doing?

Nose-out hover rolling to nose-out inverted hover reverses pitch but roll stays the same.

I started pitching to inverted but found it more difficult.

I like flying straight at myself upright, then doing half a loop. The end result is the same, a nose out inverted hover, but just do whatever works for you!

I do the roll thing which usually results in a crash regardless of nose orientation....so ya....I'm good like that.

This is where a Sim really helps. I download the model I'm flying into the sim and just keep practicing.

You'd be crazy NOT to fly in that...

How can I test to see if I have a bad RX?

(See more detailed post in the quad thread).

Be careful with Throttle Hold! Or should I say learn to use it at ALL TIMES! Six stitches. It hurts a bit but I learned my lesson.

Somewhat graphic so here is a link:

And don't reach for the boom as it swings around. BTDT have the same scar. In my case, I think I had the gyro reversed...

That's why I don't mess with HelimaSlicers.

-----------

I've got the itch for another airplane. But I don't know what I want. And I still have to keep it relatively inexpensive. Not looking for 3D, sport is fine, not sure, suggestions?

I was looking at a couple of the HobbyKing EDF Jets. Something that has a decent aerobatic envelope, with a decent speed envelope. Don't necessarily want another foamy, but will consider something made of EPP or EPO, no 3D/precision micro foamy crap. I have my depron airplanes for 3D.

This was a 12x4.7 slow fly propeller on my 48" Sbach profile!

Been there, done that, mine wasn't quite that bad.

Just gotta be careful around them sharp spinning propeller thingies.

Or we can all just convert over to slope flying. You get bored after about an hour in the air though...

Thunderstorms again, there is some wack weather the mudwest is having this year.

I got to take two flights last night, wind has calmed down to something that kinda came from one direction. Went in to help the wife with something and went to go back out....inside for about 10min and looked out the window and the trees are bending.....later that night t-storms again.

My planes are getting dusty.
