Just thought I would post a few pics of this new heli I have got hold of to try.
Very surprising machine I can tell you. Tracks and flys really well. Tail power is great and gear ratios seam to allow the engine to thrive.
Cyclic power is not exactly rapid, so crazy stick banking 3d is probably out.
But is does do the stuff if you ease off just a tad.
Piro metrnomes, Piro flips and Piro loops are all a breeze so the tail shows good power under changing loads.
I would say the only reason it is not best suited for hard core abrupt 3d is that the pitch range is limited to plus and minus 10 degrees max. So you can't get that meaty punch you might like. Also roll and flip rate is very respectable, but not rapid..

However, I reckon with a bit of thought and lateral thinking, both the pitch range and cyclics can be increased. Paddle choice possibly and moving of some of the balls.. We shall see.

a few pics out of my gallery, taken after the first days trials.
Need to do a few mods for improvements etc.. Will post here soon.

Hello from 3dmasters spain 2009

Hi to all
I arrived with family on the Monday prior to 3dm.
It's now Wednesday and as expected, the weather is truely superb.
I spent most of Tuesday at the practice area watching some terrific flying from pilots that included Lucas Riva.

A couple took advantage of the fact that myself being a judge might help them tweek / focus their flying for potential better scores during the competiton.
Today for me and the family has to be about exploring and enjoying this region of Spain. So no flying enjoyment for me but we do have to make these unreasonable sacrifises smilie

So far it's mainly align 700's with a few very nice exceptions.
Everyone is loving the location, the weather and the people.

Gallery images and video uploading
Adminmain Adminmain's icon.

Hi everyone.

A year or so back, I coded a video upload feature so members can upload to this site their heli videos, instead of using Youtube. So you can post in the forums, mention your uploaded vides and members can go straight to them in the video vault.
Also I had naturally coded an image upload for the member gallerys so you can send pics to the site.

Well it used to work perfectly and many have uploaded videos and images for you to browse through. But a while back, Microsoft must have done either an update to the browser or maybe changes were made to Java. Either way, they both stopped working.

I have gone back and back trying to make it work with no good results. UNTILL TONIGHT.

As I tried to change the coding once more, I got an update reminder for my web coding software. I did the update and then went through these functions again. The code was modified by the updates and I have uploaded the new pages to the site.

For me it had stopped working on every browser on every computer I tried it on. But now it works on every computer and browser.

So guys, if you have some cool pics of your helis or interesting stuff to shove in your gallery, please do. (hold the ctrl key down to select multiple images in one upload).
Also if you have any heli videos under 50 meg, then please upload these too so others can enjoy them in the video vault.

If anyone finds it still does not work for them and they get an error regarding not finding a file, please pass it on to me.

To upload to your gallery, select "My console" icon on the home page and then "Gallery" (camera icon).
For video uploading, just click on the "video upload" icon on the homepage and follow the instructions through.

Thanks everyone.... Simon smilie

Well, Some of you know that i used to own a Raptor 30, and that i was beginner at the start of the year,

Well ive been flying the bird for 4 months (took a couple of months out as i crashed ) so a couple of days ago i sold my Raptor 30, and upgraded to a Vision 50 by ElyQ, and here are some video's

The first one is really getting a feel for the controls, so i was all over the place, but i ran out of memory on my phone so the flight wanst fully recorded:

The second video is me doing a small controlled routine, but the person that was filming stuck the cam in Night mode so the video is choppy :( but its quality is still good enough to work out what im doing :)

Tell me what you think and i am to see some of you at the club shortly! (have a large hole in my wallet if you know what i mean :P )

Vision 50 spec:

Align reg and lipo
Align Gov
OS50 hyper engine
Align muffler
Align Carbon tail blades and White paddles
Align DS610 cyclics x 3
Futaba 3152 Throttle servo
GY611 gyro and S9256 tail servo.
