Welcome to Jazzy's Flight Deck!

Are you a beginner RC airplane flier? If you are, I hope to provide valuable information to help you get off the ground! RC flying can be very frustrating, and this is quite normal, so don't let it stop you from enjoying this wonderful hobby! Once you get your plane up there, I promise you will be happy you did it! Please let me know if there's anything you'd like to see here or if you have any questions.

Aircraft listed in bold now have mini-reviews and/or videos.

Over and out!

Align Trex 250




This is the Align Trex 250 micro 3D helicopter. It is a fully 3D capable micro helicopter, and since it's small and has no momentum, it can fly some impressive punchy moves.

Here's some videos of mine.

Looks interesting. Any personal flight experience with this?

Yes I have flown it a few times. It flies very nice - it is not for beginners, but it is much more stable than I expected. Flies a lot like a hopped-up 450, but it's kinda small so you don't go too far away with it :)

Check on Helifreak.com - we're all over it!

Happy flying. EC

Thanks!

I have done my test flying, but haven't got to really shake it out yet. Unfortunately I haven't got any video yet. I will get some as soon as I can, but with 40+ mph winds and wicked cold lately, I don't imagine that will be any time soon :)

Hi Jasmine,

I am trying to find your e-mail adr. in order to ask you for help in setting up the Gyro of my new T-250. Whatever I setup according to your very helpful YouTube video´s if keeps working incorrectly.
I have used my DX-7 and will use my DX-12 when the DX-7 works correctly.
Pls contact me at:

Jeff.Brunet@Gmail.com

Many thanks in advance and cheers, Jeff. (Holland).

Hi Jasmine,
I saw your SIG Hummer racer video, I have that same plane with no motor. Can you suggest a setup for that plane or give me an idea of what you used on that plane?

I heard in the video it was an electric motor. I think that is the path I would like to go as well.

Thanks for the great video posts.

That plane is listed on the blog as "Pink Lightning" - I used a E-flite Six Series motor and it worked very well. You have to use a good battery with it, and make some cooling holes.
