    Jeez what a beautiful machine! I was watching a couple of YouTube vids last night that showed some guys doing something I hadn't seen before. It was xtreme low head speed 3D and it was incredible to watch. It was like you were doing here sort of. What I liked is that I could actually see what was going on because it was slow and graceful almost. I can watch normal 3D and be amazed but honestly I haven't a clue what is going on in each element. With these guys doing the low head speed I could see what was happening. So even though that was easy flight for you, to me it was what I see as my goal. Thx for posting that!
    Ps I love the sound yours makes!

    Fly girl: For some reason I couldn't link with the web site you posted. The AeroSky quad is a bunch of fun. You can program it for beginner or expert flying. It's 14"x14" fairly good size. Since I live in the San Francisco Bay area, calm days are few. XHELI has a good video when you check out AeroSky page. This 14"x14" quad doesn't much care about wind lots of power, will handle a POV with no problems. I plan to learn a lot more about these quads. Also FYI I am going to swap pcb from my s33, into my s033g. They are exactly the same except for the boards. Will post what happens. Happy flying. Sarge

    I haven`t looked at quads with a view to buying one , mainly `cause of the cost..until now . Goat`s post on the Aerosky quad was real interesting . It looks like it would be a good entry level one.I saw one site last night that advertised one with GPS..and still at an entry level price...hmm .

    and I said " Nothing ".
    and she said " But you did that yesterday ".
    and I said "I haven`t finished yet ".

    That synergy was very Kool Flygirl definitely is where I wanna go one day. I'm getting a lot better at the 3D on the SIM but still a long way to go cause once your upside down everything is backwards... and I tend to get disoriented. One day!

    One thing I've noticed on the SIM is the bigger ones are easier to fly than the small ones, at least the sport helis those great big military looking ones can be rather interesting, real heavy.

    Same here Goat! The bigger they are the easier they fly.... Wonder if that's what they mean when they say 500's and above are just more stable?

    it's a tough choice, but i guess my orange Bee would have to be my favorite so far, although... this brushless E500 co-axial is pretty sharp too .
    Happy Flying!

    My copters are just like my guitars. The newest is always my favorite. Right now it's actually a quad, Walkera's Ladybird.

    Yeah they really are, the guys in the R/C club I met here today told me that was true and the same with the planes. The planes were something else they can fly in the wind really well its neat. One guy is gonna train me with a trainer TX. Cant wait. These guys are serious... BIG planes and Helis
