We have a deal.. She gets diamonds equal to the value of my toys..

Once she had agreed to that deal, I reminded her how much her Engagement ring cost...

Then I said, "So I've got a lot ot catching up to do.."

I assembled it last night, and this morning, it's too windy to try. I looked at some videos, and it looks very responsive, what I was looking for. I have read some concerns about Wheel nuts (I put Blue Locktite as recommended), the CG where battery must be fully forward, and about the wing characterictics. My blades look almost symetrical, but it does seem that the flatter part is on the top, and the round part is on the bottom. Seems like a manufacturing mistake, but many have reported that it's not causing problems. Also seem like the landing gear will be in need of some epoxy after first landing in grass. I'm used to that with park flyers. I can't wait to try. It has lots of power.

Also note that the 2200mah is thinner compared to the Turnigy size I use. I might have to cut the foam a bit to get these to fit. But enough said, it's a heli forum afterall :-)

Then you need to suddenly find a "new friend at work" who just started into RC planes and "HE" doesn't want his wife to know he is buying planes so he has asked YOUto keep them at YOUR house, and because you are HIS instructor, he has given you permission to fly them any time...

Its a reverse, reverse psychology thing and itworks for a close friend of mine.. and I have to say I did use it once whenI bought the BL Mustang...
