Flying and more Flying

I've been flying most nights for the last few weeks.
Confidence has returned and I'm now doing lots of low circuits and general flying here and there.
All of this has been done in quite a small area. I will soon start to get it really cranked up in a bigger space for some decent fast forward flight.  Once that becomes easy again i'll move into doing some light aerobatics :)

Mishaps & Spares

Since getting the heli flightworthy i've had a few minor scrapes of the blades.
I bought some main shafts from Trademe but they weren't straight so decided to send them back and get a spare belt instead.
I went to Hobby Hangar and bought myself some new Align mainshafts that are considerably better made, and straight!  I also picked up a few main gears as I noticed that mine had a few teeth that were a bit broken.
The heli is now considerably quieter and wobble free.
