Default nevermind...

BeyondBlue. --- Update on the Blade SR.

Had more damage than I thought. Pulled it out of storage and forgot the main gear was wiped out, the original owner left a spare in the gift bag. the pin sheared, that was a PITA to get out but done. Have to order main blades and it is back in action

Cool! Sounds like you will have it repaired soon.
I just got my new E-Flite Blade 200QX BL. I got the radio programmed, installed the landing gear and optional 720p HD still and video camera and did my maiden flight. This quad copter is awesome. It is really stable and a lot of fun to fly. I think I am gonna use it to take some aerial video while you guys are flying your models. Should be fun

Here is a picture of it after my maiden flight:

Looks like a great Quad! FUN! I have been flying my 180 CFX.... it has been a great little heli, I have updated the firmware with a spektrum cable and I have the tail really locked in nicely .... I have a youtube video of my 2nd flight, since today maybe have 10 flights now. the cyclic is so crisp and shines,loving her now I am starting to collect backup parts

Nothing wrong with a 250.... the 180 cfx is having it's quirks too,not long ago it was just announced in Oct and it is Dec, just about everyone on HeliFreak.com has found something wrong with it in their own way.... mine are very minor. the canopy is stubborn putting on with the size of the battery and spare parts prices are a little high. I got carbon fiber blades for 20 bucks, ouch and a Blade fiberglass canopy going on when I am fully comfortable with her...... Other than that, Feels so good with the governor, I like it!!! in my video I flipped it in normal mode, you got skills so it is a breeze to push around. About the size? just keep it in close and it is tame, not twitchy Best part NewJak it has a lot of AFTERMARKET support for mods. I am eyeing those now for the 130x, they are almost giving away with the prices on parts.

Honestly I haven't given up on my 250 yet. I have changed just about every part on the darn thing. Since the latest round of changes I haven't tried to fly it yet. I had a little difficulty setting it up on the DX9 and I wasn't in the mood to tinker so I put it away and flew the other stuff I had with me that day. AS soon as I finish my boat craze I will get back to the helis. I haven't even flown my 700 at all this year!!

Still working on the 250. In the meantime while I was doing maintenance on my 600 I found a cracked ball link. Good thing I just decided at random to check the heli! Disaster averted!. I also got in another early Christmas present HK Small Bolt

How you going to drive 2 vehicles full of hobby stuff ?

Still brisk for me out there, I am still going out Monday for some 180 cfx testing. me and some other pilots were practicing half piro flips on my sim online --- I now have the concept , practicing them before I attempt them with my hard earned toys though. 40 degrees or lower is not fun with my transmitter hands

How did your flight session go? I didn't post it ,but I went out earlier today and got in a few flights with Smoothcruizer. I actually spent most of the time running my truck because the sky was very grey.

Can say everything went good other than I forgot the charge lead for my charger so 4 flights and done. I really need to stock up on some lipos.
