Miniture Aircraft have a new electric 600 heli in the pipeline, as yet there are no release dates.
It happened again last Wednesday, I dumb thumbed her in…The conditions were good, 8-10mile winds, good visibily, I did have a new transmitter which I must admit I wasn’t 100% used to. Although I did fly all this weekend without incident so I guess I can’t used that excuse 😛
Turns out the crash damage was quite minimal, she’s fixed already minus a new set of blades. My only concern is the weight of the heli continues to increase due to more and more application of expoxy to the canopy.
This morning was perfectly still and clear again in London so I was out with my Trex 600 EP before work. The Rhino 4900 6S 20C batteries continue to impress me. This was the forth cycle today and they are still awesomely powerful with no sign of puffing or fatigue what so ever
I noticed on the second flight something hit the blades, like a bug or something, but it was really just my subconscious that noticed it. After the third flight I noticed a slight buzzing coming from the tail and sure enough one of the screws that bolts the boom-support to the main frame was missing . Needless to say I considered myself very lucky and called it a day.
It’s not often there are no warning signs before things go terribly wrong
Yes that’s right I said it today was choppatasic, super still air this morning with good visibility, perfect conditions for 3D.
I’m up to my third cycle in on my Rhino 4900mah6S 20C packs and they are loving life in the Trex 600. I was practicing funnels tail down both upright and inverted…I just need more stick time.
