Default Video - Fully Modified Honey Bee FP

I hadn't flown since November 10. I just had to get outside and fly! This flight took place last Sunday. Special thanks to the wonderful camera lady, my wife, for braving the cold to support my RC helicopter addiction.

My setup on this bird:

- Esky Honey Bee FP Airframe
- Slo-Max 300 Main Motor w/10T Pinion and Heatsink
- GWS DD Tail Motor (CN12-RXC) - No Heatsink
- GWS Tail Rotor Housing and Vertical Fin
- GWS Tail Rotor Adapter w/4530 Prop
- Super Skids
- Spektrum AR6100 Rx
- E-flite 3-in-1
- Esky 0704A HH Gyro
- Kyosho M24 Blades
- Commonsense RC 2S 800mAh 10C Lipo
- Esky Honey Bee King II Canopy
- Spektrum DX7 Tx

The helicopter performed very well for its maiden flight. The additional headspeed from the Slo-Max 300, the DD tail and the HH gyro really improve the flying characteristics in the wind.

The weather conditions weren't the greatest and my flying skills were a little rusty for not having flown in six weeks. However, I did manage to bring it home in one piece. I did have a couple of close calls, especially the incident at about 2:50 in the video. I was making a very steep, high-banked, diving turn and nearly plowed it directly into Mother Earth. I don't know how I saved it. I just made the correct stick inputs without having to think about it. This is what usually happens as your flying skills develop. You don't have to think about the correct stick inputs...it just happens without thinking. Anyway, enjoy!
