Don't forget to get the optional weight kit for the 580...it keeps you from becoming airborne if you accidentally point the tube directly down.

Why do you think the thing has a waist belt...otherwise it would fly up and hit you in the head. It's kind of fun to set it on the ground at full throttle...kind of like blowing up a balloon and letting go of it.

I prefer a push-button kill switch that you have to deliberately push and hold to turn off.
NOW I know exactly what you are talking about on turning it off when I don't mean to. I did not know what was doing wrong at first then I figure it out to do not push the throttle hold all the way up.
