I met up with another pic flyer today (hover_lover777) and went flying. we had fun and It was cool to see 2 piccolos flying at the same time. hover _lover is verry good at flying and can even do verry well controlled forward flight circuits! I of coarse being new to the heli scene wasn't nearly as good but I pulled of a super fast double pirhouet (spelling) and managed to keep the helicopter from falling and breaking!... untill I tried it again. this time I took a hard landing from about 5ft and broke the skid at the socket for the landing strut (today was my first day without training gear!).Not bad.. a little ca and we were flyin again! Thats what I get for trying to be nuty! All in all I had fun watching a more experienced pic pilot fly and I got a few ideas from him that really helped (like how to stiffen my landing gear). good flying and I hope we can do it again sometime J!
