A couple of local Grand New's were parked at Moorabbin yesterday: I had a little check out of the FMS and auto hover, very impressive: but also very much a feature that needs intimate knowledge to operate

Was going to ask, what company is ribbed up enough to buy two the same colour? Now after a bit of a clue in one of the pics, I am still wondering if both belong in the same truck shed?

Question

How does the 117 go up there? Would not a 350B3+ do better?

It does very well, but requires to be very cautious because of its extreme sensitiveness to the slightest wind direction change. A few knots may increase/decrease performance instantly.

B3s are the thing ! But cabin room is too small for our operations.

You try and walk Around the Coast Path of the UK, and someone put's one of these in the field.

Made my day though
