Only a phone shot at the moment

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

Support your LHS!

Its looking kinda nice out right now. I think I'll do a little flying outdoors. Not sure where just yet. If no one's coming to the school I'll fly at Big Oak.

Crashed my 130x and waiting for parts so I decided to get out my old Losi Micro T and finish setting up the brushless conversion I did to it a few years ago. Had to dial down the throttle and steering end point adjustments. The throttle was set at 100% which was causing the esc to shut down so I dialed forward and reverse throttle to 70% and the issues are resolved I have a few Hot Racing aluminum upgrades on it also. Of course I have two 180mah 2 cell lipos I use instead of the underpowered Nimh battery it came with. Car is a blast to drive. I will post a couple pics

Here you can see the underside of the chassis and the brushless motor. After replacing 6 brushed motors I finally went brushless, because the lipo battery kept burning out the stock brushed motor Well my 130x parts should be in next week and I can get my 130x airborne again I was doing some backflips, it was getting dark and lost orientation. It went down in idle up and I hit throttle hold as quick as I could. Felt like everything was happening in slow motion. I broke the landing gear and broke the plastic pitch slider lever. I have the Microheli carbon fiber landing gear and aluminum pitch slider lever on order. More bling for the 130x

Got it used on Ebay.... the original owner loaded it up with micro heli stuff. I am going to order some more blades and a canopy when $ allows me it is pretty dam sweet... though I need more time with it. BeyondBlue my gyro gain pot is near the 10 o clock position and the differential pot on the 2 in 1 is about 11. when I hovered it the tail would pulse just very slightly in normal mode (stock) transmitter. could the gyro pulsing actually slow the head speed down? not like it seem to matter as it lifted off the ground in the 35-40% range but that felt right for some reason? i think it has lots of expo built in, just hovering in the wind there was no bad tendency at all ... the tail kicked out to look about 3 or 4 inches when I bleep the throttle a little but stayed there. I will let you fly it if I see you soon sometime

A little tail wag on the SR is normal, but you can make it less severe by turning the gyro down. Before my crash I think I had it set between the 8 and 9 o'clock position. Also, I had the 2 in 1 unit set up so that when you bleep the throttle the tail would not kick out at all. Hopefully I will have mine fixed and set up correctly next time I see you guys at the field. I am gonna pick up my parts from the hobby shop Friday and fix the SR and 130x this weekend I am looking forward to checking out your SR. Happy flying and good luck
