Nice! glad you like it... I stopped by your field Tuesday I think but nobody was around , I am looking for a job in the area.... Anyways I own 3 T-28's because of my parkzone T-28. I came off wrong to Newjak but like I quoted, these buggers are nice box stock setup and all three are standard power from the factory

If you want to go by the field and check things out / fly one day, let me know. Anyone with AMA cam fly there a few times a year as a guest.

I know it is not convenient for some, but I really do enjoy have a nice pit area (with 12V power) and an unobstructed flying area.

Like to, but will be busy.

For those of you that may be interested, KCAM is having War Birds day on Sunday. There are usually some nice birds flying / on display.

I watched those vids. I prefer the "Freddy can fly" videos. He does a lot more explaining of what each function does. It turns out I had the wrong swash setup in my radio. It should have been set to 1 servo. I had it set at 3 servo 120 degrees.

RIP Novus FP 200. :cry

Had an issue the other day with a loss of tail control. Got he back on the ground with only damage to the tail rotor guard. No big problems, just some slop in the tail shaft that let the gears become disconnected. Put in a new shaft and fixed the slop issue.

Took her out for a test flight once the wind died down this evening. All was going well until, at about 100' up and only about 20' out, she just lost all power and plummeted to the road out front! She will not be rebuilt and is already in the trash. Any of you have use for a Heli-max TX-450 transmitter? Free, it is of no use to me.

It was a decent heli, but I will not get another one. Not sure what I will replace it with. Might go with a quad, who knows.

Too bad about your heli. Quads are VERY popular right now.

I picked up some new carbon fiber tail blades for the 600. I will probably give them a go this weekend.

I think I worked out the problems with my 450pro. I updated the firmware and got rid of some slight binding of the tail blades. Much better now. Flew a couple of packs today. It handled itself well in the 15mph winds
