Tricopter Practice Flights

I'll be the first one to admit that I'm not the greatest heli/multi pilot: I've hovered a lot and my skill where limited to just that, hovering and tail in-flights. I decided to improve my skills over the weekend and these are the results. I flew my tricopter at the local park for 12 batteries (about 120 minutes of flying) and at the end, I feel much more confident about flying a rotary wing aircraft. There still is a lot to improve and it just confirms that if you want to be a better pilot, its just a matter of getting more stick time.
