I have just flown the ladybug indoors last Wednesday. To start off it was fast and very touchy. After I got the feel of it you could calm it down and fly much slower. It would roll, loop, harrier, torque roll and just about anything you could throw at it. I think it's a bit heavy and I'm going to try and reduce some weight. I was flying it with a stock GWS flight pack on a 3 cell 700Mah Kokam Li-poly battery built stock with the addition of rudder held on with a little foam-safe CA. It was fun to fly and all the guys joked with me that they wanted to step on my little pesky flying bug. javascript:void(AddText('[>:]'))

I think I saw you fly it, were you flying it at Springfield High School? That thing flew really fast on 3 cells, wonder what it would do if it had a smaller motor?

Here is a reply I got from another post on the E-Zone:

For fun I substituted the 300C "B" gearing and 9/7 prop that came with my Easy Bug with an IPS A drive and 10/6 HD prop.

This combination weighs about 4.8 ounces without landing gear and battery and would make a great indoor flyer.

Nice loops from level flight, good inverted but rolls suffer a bit because of the lack of speed.

The center of gravity was back a bit further than I like with 2S 340 lipoly cells but improved with 700's.

Anyone willing to try 3 lipoly cells in series would have a great indoor hoverer.
