Guess what I finaly tried my luck. I made a training gear out of platic golf bals that I placed on dowel rods. When I spooled the rods were viberating from the rotor baleds so I think that they are too flimsy. I have another home made training gear with large plastic balls that are on fiberglass rods that are more stiffer. I will try these ones next time to see if they don't viberate. I got a little nervous and landed a little too hard and broke the bottom of the back fin.
Ok, so all went well I spolled up of ground for 10 seconds then put her down. Then I put the helicomand on WOW was it so stable .
There was a little wind so I tried to stay nose into the wind. I made a couple of piroettes thae 2 times I made circles.
I know that this isn't much but now I finaly have gotten over the fear of just hovering. Between hovering a gentle movements the battieries lasted 14 mins so I decided not to push my luck.
