Very cool. Will it handle a small cam?

I've seen video of one with a Hobby King Wing Cam HD and it was flying ok. They are way too small for a GoPro.

I picked one up yesterday and have been flying it back and forth in the lounge room. They are pretty awesome, and easier to handle than a tail rotor heli.

Just got mine for my birthday yesterday. Only had time to set it up and try out the controls in the living room last night before bed. This thing is very cool. can't wait to get it outside and actually have room to do more than hover and drift around.

Are you using the stock transmitter? I've only got three flights on it and still getting the trims set for a nice steady hover. Inputs are tiny for big results.

Have flown it about 10 times or so now and haven't broken anything yet. The canopy has lots of scotch tape and the props are getting beat up, but it still flies just fine.

I switched from X mode to + mode last night and have been having much greater success with it. I read somewhere that + mode is a little easier for beginners. I can keep it up for most of the battery now (10-12minds). I have it set to low rate and have turned throttle inputs waaaaay down. Still more comfortable when it's going away, have been practicing turning and bringing it back to me very slowly at low levels. Works great outside, but can get lofted easily by the wind. I'm learning not to panic and jerk the sticks when i want to correct something. So far it's survived a telephone pole, magnolia tree, telephone wire, and my neighbor's hedge.

Can't wait to get some more batteries for this thing.
