Hmmmm Blade and Horizon Hobby. Interesting business model.

There products are expensive. It's why they are able to profess such great customer service.

They concept a product. Bring it to fruition without, for the most part handling all QC issues. It's really a joke in the modeling community. You can expect 5 things:

1) A rumored product is coming (It literally takes a year).

2) When product is introduced, take the 130 for instance. It immediatly has a bad tail. Immediatly.

3) Krazy "fan boys" the like of Apple fanboys are not disuaded for a moment. They find another tail (Walkera I think) and cobble together a working tal

4) The same fan boys who don't mod their crap send it back to H/H and extoll the wonderful virtues of their customer service when they finally get something back 6 to eight weeks later b/c H/H only has 14 VERY overworked techs.

4a) Horizon does NOT supply spare parts.

5) Horizon may or may not make a V2 of their negligable product.

I literally have a love/hate with H/H. I got started because of the Blade CX2 and it was really, really a wonderful learning tool.

Simon, rescued me after I bought perhaps the largest piece of crap, the Blade SR. However after spending 500 bux on the unit and spares I DID learn CP!

Simon says "For 200 bux all up we can get a Trex clone"! I said "I'm in"! and the rest was history!

Horizon Hobby is the Harley Davidson of radio control.

They literally owe their existance on fanboys who somehow accept that buying crap on a shingle, or at least rolling the dice each time you buy a product is "OK">

Shame on me for supporting them!

I think we should call it Rick's Cafe... I can just about imagine Bogey &amp;Bacall in a nice quiet corner over there. And fortunately, no Nazis.

Some more fine tuning on the 500 today. Handles 30+ knots of wind no problems which I like, as I"m quite often restricted with the 450 and the wind here. I've nearly got it dialed in where I would like it. Pack 1 and 2 from today. I need to get some more batteries now..... damn these things

Jonesy, my 500 is nowhere near that crisp..looks good!  Have you thought of doubling up your 450 pack?  That's about all I've done...thought about it.  Having batteries go bad now on everything...2 years.<div>
</div><div>Yea, I remember when got the SR rb... he used to take it for a walk down the street.  I still have mine and fly it occasionally...as you said, a big piece of crap!

Hiya Kidz!

Had a wonderful morning!

It was hot and humid but my flying was <gasp> flawless!

I flew left, then right and then left again!

The viddy will up in the night on Youtube and I'll post here in the edit in the AM!!

Hope y'all got shum schickt time!

PS Perhaps a "mans" charger for myself for Father's day? I'm using the Accucel 6 and 8 respectively!

Super Blather!

Flying wasn't good. To begin with I wanted to fly the plank but too windy. So I go to burn the charged packs off on the 450. Wind isn't too bad but it was gusty as heck and as such a lot of balloning both up and down. I was in FFF and at one point it stopped the heli and put it in a dive. I can only imagine what would have happened if it had a flybar! After that I landed only to hear a squealing bearing on spool down. Sigh, go in the house to get silicon spray... Second pack I just burned off hovering beside the house and bushes, still very gusty but not like out in the field! Haven't burned off the last pack I charged last night yet but need too as I have 2 ball games to go to tonight. Oh well, there's allways the (dis)charger.

Dang the luck!

Once you get the 500 square you will laugh at 25kt winds!

Enjoy the ball games as the kids are only young once!

Suffering the "Lurgy" here again so watching my "comfort show" of late which is the original Star Trek on Netflix!

All the best!

It's soooo nice to see it in its HD form for better or worse. If ONLY DesiLu would have gave them a larger budget!

Fantastic!!!

My right hand to God, I only saw 7 women in this video!

There were three phat wives and 4 booth hotties who, if not provided copious amounts of money to show up, would have NEVER set foot on premises.

Frankly, it's a little embarrassing![:'(]

Hiya Dan!

Glad you had a good day flyin'!

My mornings are dry but the "Lurgy" persists.

No flyin' the past two days.[:'(]

Worked a 1/2 day today and will prolly be back in the pink tomorrow.

So's ya caught a bass too??

Where'd ya go, Lynn Creek park? Looks like other lakes to your north are private club lakes with the exception of a reservoir off the the east?

Yah, I've rebuilt boats before and they are a labor of love.

How longs it sat?? If this is yours in the piccy below it may have been a while?[8D]

Now that is the best looking Orange receivers I have seen. Great weather still here but due to work go out in the dark and return home in the dark. Fully booked weekend with family stuff so will hopefully take to the air the weekend after.

Have fun guys.

Like Brian I have been sick all this week. The HK450 has been converted to TT so hoping Im well enough to give it a test flight this weekend.
I did however have a chuckle at this. Not often you see Align copying someone.

Thought I would duck out this afternoon before dark and put another two packs on the 500 after upgrading to zyx 4.01. Pack 1 was great, there are some excellent imporvements in stability over v 3.02 which I was running.

Pack two was a different story, I had just flicked into idle up and about 10 seconds later something has let go inthe tail and down she went. The 500 is pretty much a write off after a 50m piro fall with no tail and a boom strike on impact. Im not really sure how but the only thing that does not have a scratch on it is the canopy. The rest of the heli is stuffed. Well at least I got a taste for the 500 class, but I don't think I will be repairing it. Shame as it was flying great. To be honest i'm a bit gutted but thats how the cookie crumbles so to speak.

Post crash video uploading later. My 808 has a dead battery so no flight video at the moment.

@ Ingleburn - Sorry you've been ill as well! I LOVE a GI tract misery! Hope yer better soon. Mine is on the tail end!

@ Jonesy - Damnit MAN! I'm gutted for ya! When you rebuild (and´╗┐ you WILL rebuild) put a belt drive on the tail. When I said something about putting the T/T on my 500 the overall response from "hard fliers" at the club was "why? Apparently a little known factoid about T/T is that it has a higher failure rate than the tried and true belt. The Goblins that are all the fad are ALL belt! I recall when I 1st started flying I simply refused to use a SIM (I still don't) I have literally crashed over two dozen times! The feeling of being bummed out is HUGE! Get back on the horse and enjoy this wonderful platform!!

@ Bryan - +1! (BTW get ANY rain from the TS??)

@ All - VERY windy here as Tropical Storm Andrea has passed. We are NOW up to proper rainfall levels. I welcome tropical storms but NOT their ugly sisters![:@]

I may or may not get to fly in the coming dayz!

All the best!

Thought I would duck out this afternoon before dark and put another two packs on the 500 after upgrading to zyx 4.01. Pack 1 was great, there are some excellent imporvements in stability over v 3.02 which I was running.

Pack two was a different story, I had just flicked into idle up and about 10 seconds later something has let go inthe tail and down she went. The 500 is pretty much a write off after a 50m piro fall with no tail and a boom strike on impact. Im not really sure how but the only thing that does not have a scratch on it is the canopy. The rest of the heli is stuffed. Well at least I got a taste for the 500 class, but I don't think I will be repairing it. Shame as it was flying great. To be honest i'm a bit gutted but thats how the cookie crumbles so to speak.

Post crash video uploading later. My 808 has a dead battery so no flight video at the moment.

Some crashes hurt more than others and your one is one of the worst.. New heli and not your fault.
Hope you get it back in the air soon and work out what went wrong. It really does look a mess. Guess the bigger they are the harder they fall.
I have one of those TT,s that have a weak spot so it snaps rather than stripping gears but maybe I should look at putting a normal one in as I dont want mine breaking mid flight.
