Had a great morning flying at KCAM. Electrics are catching on there.

I do not care how much you paid for it; it is still a toy.

The runway, while grass, is rolled periodically and is pretty smooth. Just about every bird I saw you guys fly at the school can take off and land on it. Even my Tower P-51 and the cub before I put the tundra tires on it.

For me, it is just nice to have a covered pit area with tables, no worries about the runway (school parking lot) having cars it it and being able to fly any day I want instead of just Sundays or hoping the local parks like Schutte are not in use so I can fly there. That and no obstacles in the aerodrome.

I do not care how much you paid for it; it is still a toy.

cool thanks for the info jerry. I ordered some parts for my heli and I wanted one spare battery and got 3 Wow I am shocked. I knew they were a good company and I told myself they were my choice but now I am locked at for a long time. also got a $30 multirotor basically the same as the Eflite version but WAY cheaper.

The Tower Hobbies P-51 is a nice flying bird.

I would use a can of compressed air first and then wipe them down with a wet paper towel or rag(just water should be fine)

flew some more nano cp x flights. It will only behave in calm conditions. very fast . cracked up the canopy and broke the skid so far. it's a little too nimble... i do not like the flybarless basically cause like I mentioned before it takes a little more aileron to straight up and also requires a lot of inputs to correct any direction to stabilize it back to a hover. I am going with a flybar heli like the Blade SR I think

They behave better when bound to a programmable transmitter like the dx6i. My mcpx definitely does I have a blade sr I learned collective pitch on. Needs a new 2 in 1 unit though since I crashed it into a tree last October. Put in the second defective one the other day from the hobby shop. Not the hobby shop's fault but it is a 45 min drive to Seaford. Gotta call Horizon and see if they will help me out and just send me a new one. Frustrated

The few times I have needed Horizons support, they were very good. Hope they are the same for you.

No problem, you can't go wrong with the dx7s. That extra channel is nice if you want to put a scale fuselage on a kit that requires retracts like a bell 222.(my personal favorite) Your quad does look like a blast to fly. Happy flyin
