I only flew the FLICS and my Q E-Z Monocopter. I was going to dig up a couple of more of my heavy MicroMaxx dogs, but it started raining and I packed it in. Back into my MicroMaxx range box, that is.
- First up was my MicroMaxx FLICS conversion. Whether from being under powered, having off-center thrust, or weather cocking, it headed off at a steep angle. I lost sight of it as it passed my tree and I thought it was in the neighbor's trees for sure. But it went beyond them. The altitude must have been over about 30'. This sucks, you say? I have several heavy MicroMaxx models that don't come close to this (as well as saucers, Qubits, monocopters, and 'sputniks') :D
- The Q E-Z Monocopter was my suckiest monocopter flight to date. The only ones that went lower were the ones that I loaded onto the rod upside down (done that TWICE). It spun a while and eventual took off to an altitude of 3'. Several factors contributed, including being too loose on the rod.
- Made some field mods and it worked worse. Hey, it did leave the rod.
