Scott, before you go into the 3G software you should adjust the pitch and roll gains first. Part of the reason your heli feels loose is because your gains aren't dialed in. Your swash is performing loosely because of gains. Once that is dialed in you may not have to make any other changes

Just flew my 210 race quad in the yard, it is great again, airmode was off and now it is back on, I was pulling off some great flips in the yard too in horizon mode, very happy

time to yank out that EDF jet I got yesterday, I got a really cool light kit I am going to install in it this evening...super bright LED's that flash with low voltage, and it beeps at you as well... I got them from RCCASTLE.com

Thanks The kids where I work have been sick a lot to which doesn't help. I feel like I keep getting recycled germs. Oh well Hope your finger is alright. Definitely scary when a quad or Heli gets a mind of it's own.

Thanks ED. Today I made sure I was about 10 feet away testing it out... I got that clone TBS Triumph antenna (short version) looks neat on the 180 quad.... I was in the lab working on the X1 and my son yelling at me about the thunderstorm. here some quick snaps,... I will try again later. these are oneshot125 but BLHELI only. they have thousand of threads online where these owners are getting the same issue of the glitch. I watched a rcgroup member thread and I found his solution....one esc is finished - I have to complete the other 3.

Looks good. If it was 4K I'd get it. I have enough 1080P cameras.

I like to have my props spin when armed. It is a visual reminder that the quad is hot. I know all the cool kids don't do it. I actual saw a video were one guy said you are stupid if you use stick arming

Picked up a Rochobby 2200mm V-tail glider for cheap the other day. Now just need a decent day to maiden it.

I need to find one more glider now, in the 4' range as I have the UMX Radian, the 2200mm V-tail and the 102" Radian XL. The XL, non AS3X, is a very nice flying bird. It can also land in a pretty small area thanks to the pop up spoilers.

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

Support your LHS!

What gates did you order? They are planning on drone racing at KCAM and are looking at different gate options.

You still FLY? I have not seen you with the group in more than 4 years. I myself am a fair weather flyer. No Shame in my game.
