XK K110 Helicopter   November 12th   One Month
Hovering practice with my XK K110 micro-sized helicopter. This is WAY harder than it looks! I've been practicing daily, for a month, and as you can see, I still have a hard time holding the helicopter in place. I can, however manage to hover without running into anything - most of the time. And yes, I do much better when the camera isn't rolling... At least repair parts are cheap - and because it is small, the helicopter survives a lot of abuse without damage.
