Well, Yellow has been a real gem since he arrived on january 24th, and is still on the 1st set of Dollar Store AA's.

He drifted rearward slightly right out of his box, so I removed his canopy, moved his battery forward, but wasn't getting his battery tray in his canopy's slot, didn't know it was there yet,  and thought the battery was stopping it, so I added 1/4 gram of heat shrink tubing from his left to right skids like a front bumper instead. That was perfect, but he looked funny.  Then I heard the battery will move enough, so I tried again, and figured out what I was doing wrong then, oops !  Hey, even a retired mechanic can screw up now and then  :>)   None of my other heli's had a slot in the canopy. How's that for logic ?  hahahaha !

So now yellow looks correct, and fly's perfect without the helibumper  :>)

Then I was shocked when his brother Red showed up today, 3 days early ?  Wow !  Yellow and I are very happy  :>)

I charged Red, let his battery cool for 15 minutes, and took him for a test flight.  He is flawless too !  Yipeeeeeeeeeee !

He's charging now after his long trip, but will be making an appearance on You Tube later. He looks great !  Dennis

This is Reds 3rd day in action, and so far has been flawless. I hope Blue shows up soon and operates as nice.  Dennis
