    $199.99 before shipping.

    Sorry...

    Let me guess, you can't fly while on a ship, at sea - at least outside? Hopefully you have a simulator or some Air Hogs to practice with! ;)

    Last October, I was able to fly the small "Silver...

    Hey Joaquin! I just spent a few minutes tinkering with the modified Heading Hold Belt CP model in ClearView, to see if I could effect:

    1) the sluggish throttle response

    That's interesting Joaquin, the Belt CP model certinally is much more sluggish than the HBK2 model I have in ClearView - and much easier to fly as a result. It takes nearly full throttle to get it...

    I recently adapted the Belt CP model for ClearView to be for a HH gyro. This is pretty simple to do, just by changing the GyroGain parameter to something like 77.5 in the model's parameters.txt...

    Make sure you don't get any extra twists in the new belt when you put the tail boom back together. It is possible to do that so it looks like everything is moving the right direction, but if there...

    Yeah, nothing can humble you faster and cheaper than a flight sim! I figure that until you can keep the sim helicopter up and stable for several minutes, you shouldn't be trying to fly in real life...

    For my HBK2 I stick a yard-stick under the landing skids, to hold the bird down while aligning the blades. Probably need something bigger, that I'm not holding down by hand, for the Belp CP.
