    RE: video ...honey bee fp w/ducted fan tail

    I dig it, daddy-o. I was going to comment on the close call with the wall (about 55 seconds into it) until the blade strike later on.. ouch! If that had been a Blade CX; you would have broken a couple of blades, the upper rotor hub, and maybe bent the shaft!

    johnnycat500,

    Nice flying, great video. Hey, we all crash. See my Blade CP after a small (big) encounter with the wall in my basement.[&o]

    johnnycat500,

    Nice job on the canopy, never would have guessed it's from a lemon juice bottle. Must've taken some time to get it shaped properly. Love the paint job. You ARE having fun!

    johnnycat500...Awesome job flying and painting. Now onto the lemon juice bottle. Did you have to heat it to shape it?
