This was just a "quick" flight to use up the fuel left in the tank from the weekend, but also as the weather was warmer to see if the heli was going to glitch or not.

Unfortunately, the glitching had returned.  Its wasn't too bad, but still back none the less.

As per always when hovering in the front yard, i just hovered around.  not enough room to do much else.

6 minute flight.  I forgot to check the max temp .

Just a quick flight to make up for only getting one flight at the club this morning due to rain.

Hovering out the front in the driveway.  Some small pitch pumps, but otherwise just plain ol' hovering.

Im still keeping the flights to 5 minutes.  Probably do another couple of cycles on each before increasing the flight length

Battery #6 took xx ma to charge in yy minutes for a 5 minute flight.

Weather was crap today.  One weekend we have blazing heat, the next its drizzling LOL

I only squeezed in one flight today.  Even that flight was a wet one, with the drizzle starting to fall about half way through the flight.

Stinker of a day for flying, but was still cool enough n the morning before it got too hot.

Well, the glitching is still there, even after the old Align 2-in-1  was removed. (didn't think it would be this)

The glitching started about 2mins into the flights and as per previous, was intermittent.  I cant even reproduce it.  One hover will be fine, then the next hover it will hiccup. Its is definately something I will have to look into and try and fix.

Besides the hiccups, I did...

A couple of great flights.  Still marred by the glitching, but still enjoyable,

First flight was a bit of flying around with some slowish piro's and getting used to flying higher than I normally would.

The second flight was similar to the first, but with some circuits (Fast forward flight Woohoo :) ) and my first real life roll.  Considering it was my first, I thought it was reasonably smooth.  I didn't attempt a second one as the fuel was getting low and didn't want to risk a flame...
