Silverlit Atlas - Mini indoor Toyheli

After my other indoor heli - the Silverlit Tandem-Z finaly quit its service (after one crash too much) I occasionally found this little thing. I was curious how such an easy heli would fly.
The short: it goes were it wants too and you can try to countersteer :-)
The "leaning forward" option is made via two pushbuttons - if you press them - the heli will go forward a bit. With the two joysticks you can change motor and tail rotor. So up/down and spinning is no problem, but going straight in one direction can be quite difficult. My next indoor heli will be the Blade mcx - a koax microheli which looks quite promising.

e-Savage FPV Edition

Due to bad flying conditions I took some FPV training on wheels :-)

Because I had no limitation on size and weight I was able to use a big servo for camera pan. I found it best to set up a mix on my transmitter that moves the cam 50% in the direction of the steering - so the FPV truck looks "into" the curve.
