|Blade 120 SR Radio Controlled Helicopter - Photo from bladehelis.com|
In my 6 flights, I've crashed quite a few times, but the helicopter is very sturdy. The only thing that has been damaged is one of the landing skid struts has broken, but it's staying strong with a bit of electrical tape. I set up my camera in the basement when I flew my 6th flight, so if anyone would like to see it, comment below and I'll upload it to YouTube and post it in this post.
My flying skills are slowly improving, and I'm starting to be able to make move the helicopter within smaller spaces. The reason I decided to get an RC Helicopter over an RC Plane, despite the fact that I'm a full-size fixed-wing pilot, is the fact that helis are much more versatile. They can be operated in much smaller spaces than RC Planes, indoors or out, and can do most of the same things. After I become very proficient with the 120 SR, I'll be looking to pick up a Blade mCP X, so that I can move on to aerobatics and inverted flight.
I should be making my 7th flight in a little while after my battery recharges (I'm going to buy extras so I don't have to wait while my only battery charges).
