Default Axe CP inverted Success!!!!

I've been waiting for the day I could finally write this. I went inverted today!! Didn't hold it, just did a stationary loop and added negative collective at the right time. Its not as in control as I'd like, but at least I'm getting confidence seeing it upsidedown.

Guys that have been following this post know my setup and now I can highly recommend it. Its not a Trex or Gaui, but it will do mild 3D and is a great (cheap) way to learn. Here's the basics of my set up:

HDX 3200 Kv motor from Helidirect with a 16 tooth pinion
Brushless 10 gram outrunner tail motor with a 4.5x3 prop direct drive
Eflite G11 heading hold gyro
Bell/Hiller upgrade
HS-55 servos

Went with the Thuderpower 1320s again and waited to get fresh batteries before I tried to flip. Calm day was absolutely required too.

Gotta go calm my nerves now...

I thought after your last try, you were thru with attempting inverted flight? It get pretty addictive, I found rolling the AXE is easier than trying to flip it to get inverted. Even with the BH head and dual rates on the cyclic, flips are a challenge on my MX300! Very simular to my nano-sized heli a Walkera 4g3, doesn't like flips but loves rolling.

Glad you've finally succeeded!
