Woohoo... She flies again :)

I had two extremely enjoyable flights.  I had a slight blade tracking issue, but easily fixed with a twist of the blade link.  The engine idle was also a little low, so i will have to adjust the linkage to set it up

First flight I mainly hovered, with some slow piros (1rpm in about 4seconds) and some very small circuits, just to shake things down and see if there would be any issues (which there were none)

Max engine temp was 91c for this flight

Was a nice morning for flying.

Its nice to get some flights in with the Mini-Titan, even if they are forced LOL.

The motor pinion looks slightly low so will have to raise that and the trim is way out.

battery # 7 took 1138 ma to charge in 53:48 minutes for a 5 minute flight

This was both a good and bad flight.

Good in that my FFF was really improving and I did 4 pretty good rolls.

Bad...  Roll number 5 resulted in the heli slamming into the ground :(  Half way through the roll I had a mental blank and forgot what I was supposed to do so all i could do was watch as the heli slammed into the ground.

Damage was Main blades, flybar cage, main shaft (ok, but will replace anyway as the collar grub screws scored the shaft), feathering shaft,...
