Heli-Log 12:29:11

Well, the end of 2011 is approaching fast. Just 2 days left for this year!

Christmas Day I managed to get in one flight on my Compass 3D+. It was bitter cold and windy. Most unusual this time of the year weather wise. Then yesterday I demoed my Protos 500 for a friend. It was 26 degrees with a light breeze, which made one fingers semi frozen! The temp was forecasted for the low 30's, but never made it out of the high 20's...burr!

I've been looking at upgrading my mCPx. A new brushless motor and speed controller, but not sure which one to get. The sad part to all of this, by the time I finish upgrading this thing, I would come close to buying 2 mCPx heli's. What are your thoughts on the upgrade options available? Which one's would be best without throwing a ton of money at it?

I've been spending some time on my sim (AeroFly 5 for Mac). I've been trying out some new maneuver with small gains. Just having a hard time settling in on the simulator vs going outside to fly. As long as there's no snow on the ground, I want to go out and fly. Today is forecasted for 44 degrees with 20 mph winds... I doubt it will make it.
