Default Post your Protos Videos here

Wow!! No wonder people complain about the 1000 deg/sec piro rate limit on the iKON...

I love watching heli abuse like that. Two minute flights are great for YouTube, but I just don't have that much fun with them myself.

I'm thinking maybe I should re evaluate after watching this one!

Testing out my home-made cap-mount for my cellphone (Samsung S4) which takes pretty good 1080p video even at up to 2.0X zoom.

With my steel pinion and double-idler mods, I can run my belt on the loose side with no fear of belt slipping. This results in improved flight time.

Smooth-3D 5-minute flight with my 130+ flight old cheap Turnigy 20C 2650 pack

Flying harder with my strong pack Wild Scorpion 45C 3500 for 6 minutes!

Hey Guys. First post in the video sticky. Flew four packs today. Still pretty new to the protos but have been flying almost a year in total. The last two packs certainly taught me a lesson. Somehow, the last two packs never charged when I put on charger and I didn't bring my checker to field with me. I ASSumed after 3rd pack came up a minute short that it was a glitch. Then when 4th pack hit LVC after only 2 1/2 minutes I was like WTF. Luckily I've worked on quick landings a bit . Anywho, enjoy! And please feel free to make suggestions and comments

Vid #1 Highlights:

1:30 - Grass Cut - Am I in the Flyin' Low Club now?
2:30 - What about a Flyin' Close Club? ....That said, I didn't expect to come in that close, but it was a nice rush.
3:00-3:30 - My sad still in the works attempt at Tic Tocs. Also an extended set of "grass play"
3:50 - Cool inverted low dipping correction....whatever you call it...I liked it


Vid #2 Highlights:

:30 - Near crash
1:55 - My first IRL attempt at a smidge of inverted backwards circuit action...I pull out quick lol. I can do this no probs on sim, but almost there IRL.
2:15-2:50 - A high bank circuit/funnel routine ending in inverted low quick hover and piro climbout.
3:15-3:30 sample of my "tail issue" and it on brink of keeping up. Looking into an upgrade. Likely a DS760 or similar.
4:25-4:50 - Similar routine circuit as at 2:15, but this one ending with much lower inverted action before the climbout.


Vid #3 Highlights:

This whole pack felt "off" from the start. On top of that it was first time I turned up the expo to 35ish to check it out from my normal levels of 20. The heli felt sluggish and underpowered most of the flight, but I was still comfortable enough to get some grass play action from 1:40-2:00. Felt like a Low Headspeed flight particularly towards the last minute or so....Then the LVC kicked in....


Vid #4 Highlights:

Up till now since my rebuild I've been running the ESC with the governor off. I turned it on prior to this flight so the first bit is me running to 100% headspeed and letting the governor store the rate. Flew nice with the governor back on. This is also my most powerful pack at 65C (nano-tech). Unfortunately, this pack also never charged as thought and hit LVC 2:35 in.

:55 inverted piro climb
1:45 Best Tic-Tocs I've flown yet though still sloppy.
2:15-2:40 - Well...it was a fun little section till LVC got me. Luckily landed safely

New main blades (same as last set) and MSH 3k tail blades. Comparing video from my Samsung S4 as cap-cam vs Paulo's Samsung S5 hand-held.

S4 cap-cam flying old weak Turnigy 20C 2650 with tamed-down governor/agility

S5 hand-held flying strong 45C 3500with aggressive governor/agility
