    Blade MSR and MSR V2

    I got my Blade MSR V2 today. Flew it and I have to say DAMMMM. Love this thing. With the new 25c batterys it felt like I was flying for a 1/2 hour (I know I wasn't lol ). This little heli is smooth and responsive. I flew a 9958 in the house but this little bird make a 9958 look bad. When they say you get what you pay for they are not jokeing with this bird.
    The MSR is worth every penny. Even with the toy RTF tx. In which has a smoother, better feeling to the sticks than the same looking 9958's.

    I'll have my unboxing and reveiw later along with what all comes in the new V2 package.

    Do I regret shelling out over $100.00 for a 4ch FP/FB? Not on the MSR. Do I regret after my 9958 flew away paying over $100.00 for the Super FP before the MSR? YES
    I do know now that a 120sr will have a place waiting for it here.

    A short clip. I would like to thank Horizon Hobby for throwing in the red canopy/tail as a Christmas present. They knew with my MS something about the blue canopy's my eyes can't focus on them to track them properly.



    Un-boxing vid coming soon.

    I figured that after the time you spent with the Super that you would be ready for the MSR. Now the MSR can help prep you for the S-FP down the road.
    Looks like some pretty hot thumb action going on there.

    It fly's great. Uploading the un-boxing now. 4 hour upload. you tube is slow.

    Things I did today.
    Put on a Super FP/Mini CP tail blade. 2 thumbs up on this.Tail is super responsive. Did notice seemed like less throdle needed and less drop in right turns.
    he he he. Found a slight cross the board Expo setting change. Not a lot but makes a diffrence. Don't know if its just me or for real.
    1. Hold both sticks all the way up and left and hold them there.
    2. Turn tx on.
    3. It beeps but wait for a very slight change in pitch (about 5 clocked sec's).
    4. Let go of sticks.
    5. Put throttle all the way down.
    6. Plug in heli.

    I was doing pero's and funnels today with this set up and short links, low rates. In my small living room.

    It has to be tested to see if it needs to go back. lol

    lol What tree. We don't put one up. It's not that we don't like them just nobody comes to our place for the Holidays. We get together at other peoples homes, so we don't go threw all the work of putting one up then taking it down.

    BTW: 1 thing I did notice with the Expo setting deal was a little tail twitch.

    I understand the tree situation. But since both my daughter and grand-daughter live with me, the tree is mandatory. Along with enough presents underneath to hold the whole thing up.
    I don't think that I ever used the stock radio with my MSR, since I already had the DX6i. And a shortage of AA batteries. I've never noticed any twitching with mine.
    I need to go find some popcorn so I'll be ready to sit back and enjoy your presentation.

    When I don't do the Expo setting thing and just use the tx high and low, the tail is rock solid. Maybe its not ment to do this Expo thing. lol

    All this time its only at 77% uploaded.
