Well the weather wasn't the best for a flight, but I managed to find a gap in the weather to have a flight.  The winds were quite strong, but strangely only noticible when performing loops, flips and rolls.

This was also the first proper flight since I performed the silicon mod to the 3G sensor.

The heli is more twitchy at light skids, but seems very locked in once in the air.  My flips and rolls were a lot better than they have and the heli felt as though it was doing everything i was telling it to.

Just a quick flight to see if i could notice any difference after doing the "silicon mod" on the 3g sensor which involves putting a blob of silicon on the sensors to "link" them all together in an effort to try and reduce vibration and oscillations.

The heli did seem a bit more stable whilst hovering about 1-2 metres off the ground.  I will have to wait and see when I go down to the field next weekend

I will probably need to lean off the mixture by a could of clicks as it is still running...

I am liking the new Carbon Fibre blades from Hobby City. 

Not much new, other than some circuits and loops and flips.

Battery #7 took 1595ma to charge in 71minutes for a 7 minute flight

The flight went very well.  The Hatori pipe makes nice power and  doesn't bog as easily.  Given the 9 minutes of flight time, I think it is still running way too rich (and the max engine temp confirms this).

I performed my first (and second and third) inverted hover today.  They weren't very long (30seconds tops), but I completed them no probs :)

The flight lasted 9 minutes and max engine temp was 71c

A nice little flight to try out the new blades that I bought from Hibby King.

They track very well and are balanced well too.  The heli seems a lot more stable again than it has with the wooden blades.

just basic hovering.

Battery #6 took 1616ma to charge in 61 minutes for a 7 minute flight.
