Forgive me trainer for i have sinned... It has been 4 days since my last flight... LOL

mmm... Every time i fly my Mini-Titan i am more and more impressed.  I have just taken it out in these horrible Adelaide wintery conditions.  Blustery winds that had the trees bowing before it.  It wasn't that strong that it blew you off your feet, but i could definately notice the wind when i got the heli up above the 5foot height.  It was so rock solid and i was able to control it...

Anzac day...  Perfect weather for flying... not a breath of wind.

Yet strangely, i had problems controlling my heli.  I think i will take off the expo that i added last week, and see if that helps at all.  I originally started with no expo, but added it after my mishap on flight #5.  I did manage a few no-hands hovers

Again i got about 6-7mins of flying with this pack (forgot to start the timer LOL). Temps were around the 60C mark for both the pack and the motor.

The battery took 1760ma to charge.

Flight #6 was thankfully un-eventful.  I decided to use my 800mah pack that i bought for the Venom Nightranger 3d.  I have been playing with the radio to work out a few more of its settings, and decided to make use of the built-in stop watch to time the flight time.  With the 800mah pack i can get about 3 1/2 minutes of hovering, which at times can seem like a long time. I have also finally found out what the 5 digit display is in the upper right hand side of the display when charging a pack on my swallow V2 charger.  It displays the number of milli-amps that are going into the battery.  So after flying with the 800mah pack, it took 725ma to charge it back up.

Flight #7 could also be called Flight #5 part 2...  It is the remainder of my 2200mah pack from flight #5. Another nice flight.  The wind was a bit stronger this time, but the Mini-Titan handled it quite well.  I got about 5 1/2 minutes from the remainder of the pack, and i didn't get to see how many mah it took to charge it up.

Flight #8 lasted about 6:35 minutes, and apart from losing one of the bits of fuel tubing holding the ping pong balls on the training gear there were no dramas.  

 



The wind was probably the strongest i have flown in.  Definately too strong for the Nightranger 3d.  The heli at times did some strange things like it was being pulled around on a string.  In a nice hover (with the wind pushing her forwards away from me) i would pull back on the stick and she would gain altitude,...

Here we go...

I purchased my Mini-Titan in mid March from ModelFlight.  I bought the ARF version which comes with a brushless motor and 40A ESC to match.  At the same time i also purchased 4x EFlite 75 mini servos and a JR G410T gyro (From Radio Model Supplies in WA).  Due to the costs, i unfortunately had to wait till next pay day to purchase the radio i wanted (Spektrum DX7)

Final Assembly of the heli went together very easily.  It was so frustrating and annoying having this new bird...
