Flying the Protos

Well, I have nearly gotten to the confidence level on the Protos that I have on the T-Rex 450. Yesterday at the flying field by the last flight I was doing big tail down snakes, dirty tail first snakes, funnels, and even did a half piro flip. Set up with the same pitch range (col&cyc) as my 450 the Protos is still more responsive an quicker in the air. I believe this comes down to a few things:

  • There is no play in the head.
  • The blades are 40mm wide
  • The helicopter is light
I think (I have not calculated) that the Protos actually has less disk loading than my 450. It sure flys that way.

We got video of my last flight at the field yesterday. I will try and get that video up tonight. Ok, I am off to fly again now...
