I'm working on my latest rainy day project. I'm making the battery hatch larger on my trainer conversion so I can fit larger lipos. The extra weight will be no problem.

Something to be excited about, I was able to setup the ESC with card and heli on, throttle range is now correct and I must of had the brake on, that's good now still need to install canopy and 4 steps with gyro, I just spun it up 25 percent for 1min before this camera shot and all good

On flight 3 with the Carbon Z Cub, something was not right. Vibe at anything over 2/3 throttle. Found magnets loose in the motor!

Hopefully, Horizon will as helpful as they have been in the past.

Thats what you get for using brand name equipment

Bummer! why can't stuff like that happen after you get 20 flights or more under your belt.... sorry to hear this, there is no doubt they should replace it....

It is time.... maybe give it a whirl tomorrow morning? nah...

Your heli is looking real good. Please,please please double check EVERY scew on your heli for locktite BEFORE you give it a full spool up. Also double check the gyro correction direction too. A lot of guys have had tip-overs on their first flight because of this. It happened to me with my 450. Luckily all I did was scrape up my blade tips.

I highly recommend switching over to a carbon fiber control rod. They are out of stock at the moment ,but it will be worth the wait.

Finally accomplished the maiden flight of my Blade 300CFX. It flew flawlessly! It is much more agile than my fly barred SR and 4503d. It will take some getting used to but I really like this heli. Feels like a much larger machine. The beast X is an awesome unit. It definitely pays to do a thorough pre-flight. I was a little nervous, but I knew I had triple checked everything so I really had nothing to be nervous about. I took a flight vid and I will try to post it tomorrow. Happy flying guys

Thanks dude... I lifted off the ground about 4 Times this morning and had some rudder trimming work, me and Newjak were testing our 450s. .. I had 2 boom support rod screws back out but it flew very smooth indeed. I think I might need to buy some spares, checked all through my parts bags with no luck, it is the same screw used in the tail

You got lucky today with those screws coming loose. That's why I reminded you to double check them. Your heli should be an awesome flyer once you get it dialed in. Don't forget to make the mechanical adjustment on the tail linkage. Your tail should be rock solid after that. I have to figure out what is causing my wag.

My 450 is driving me crazy! I can't track down the source of my tail wag. I'm going to start over again and change all of the head components. Also going to recheck my bearings

Weather definitely looks great for Sat and Sun. Gonna try and get some flying in tomorrow I think. The winds will be higher on Sunday and partly cloudy, but still looks like an ok day
