Weather wasnt the best - warm and muggy, but the storm clouds looked awesome :)

A couple of excellent flights.  My flips and rolls are improving where more and more of them are consistent and "tight"

A couple of the fly-bys that I did with barrel rolls left and right I nailed, with the heli looking like it was on a wire and spinning around this wire.

The second flight I did some inverted nose in hovering, holding it for quite a while.  I even did a piroette whist inverted :)

No new moves, but rather just practicing existing.

I feel that my flips and rolls are improving, getting more consistent due to better pitch control

I can never work out why the first flight always uses more fuel than subsequent...

For the first day of the year the weather started off not too bad, but then the wind whipped up a bit.  Still ok, but was a southerly which I don't enjoy as much as when from the nothern sides.

Despite the wind, I still had two good flights.  The rolls were a lot better than they have been as were the flips.

Some inverted hovering - loop, hold inverted for 5-10 seconds, then complete the loop.

Flight times of 10 and 11 minutes, with engine temps of 93 and 103
