Flying Monkey takes off!


After spending a few runs over the past couple of days getting a handle on the blade 400, I'm slowly increasing the amount of time I can hover in place. With a slight breeze I can only keep it stable for about 10 seconds, but without wind I can keep it steady for much longer. The image above was a tricky one to get. The timer function on my camera only allowed me a few seconds to get my hands on the transmitter and get it off the ground, so it took me a few tries to get the heli fully in frame. Hopefully I can find a place near the dorms once I move out so I can keep practicing and eventually get into directional flight.

Awesome Eric! I was hoping you'd be practicing. I'll have to bring you the feathering shaft so you can swap that out. We'll have to go flying soon before you get deep into classes.
