Well I had a 2+ mph breeze, but just had to see it in the dark so not much wild flying due to breeze. Went OK, but night flying is gonna take some getting used to! Once it got real dark I felt like Ronny Milsap playing basketball with the Harlem globetrotters! Laughing Laughing

I can fly the hell out of these in the light, but dark? I could tell orientation with LED nav lights, but it was hard not seeing the heli well or at all! Spoon I don’t know how you do it? I can jam at 500' up and you name it,. But turn off the lights I was looking for a cane with whiter tips!! Had one hard smack down behind heli-pad (lost orientation and put it down lol) and thought I had maybe damaged the on board cam, bit it was fine. Man I gotta go find my Xanax!Shocked

Video is in HD (720p) and best viewed in YouTube. Feel free to stop by our public Big Lama Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/ESkyBigLamaPage

Looks pretty cool in the dark. Been on the road awhile. Yee haw I'm home again. I'm looking for a stock Big Lama RX. I looked in all the normal places but they were all out of stock. No luck on ebay either.

Cool thanks Tony.
I was up in KY. Took the heli with me. My mom is almost 80 and she got a big kick out of it. I bought her a Syma 107G, 3 ch. you should see her try to fly it. She's getting the hover down pretty good. Next we'll work on moving around the room. She's like a little kid. I love watching her with it.

Well I ordered some more of the Orange Rx's from HK. Seems like every time I get one it ends up in a plane and I don't have one left over for my Lama. Finally got the repairs done on the Military Lama so now I can put it back on Lama #1. Lama #2 is having some serious vibration problems so I'm just gonna take it apart and start from scratch and check each part. I think it's a bent inner or outer shaft. Also one of the main gears looks a little out of wack.
