Yesterday I was prepared to spend some serious time flying my Trex 700n. With 11 flights on a newly rebuilt motor, a new radio setup, and being able to practice some new maneuvers while breaking in the motor without taxing it too much. But things didn’t work out as planned. Switching into idle 2 right after lifting off the ground…the tail started swinging to the left as if a link broke. So I slammed it to the ground before it got out of control.

Creased the boom, broke one tail wire loop, and broke the rear landing skid…so far. That put a damper on the rest of the day! I pulled the Protos out and put up 2 flights, then I tried the Compass 6HV, only one flight on it. After that I really didn’t feel like flying anymore. The weather was hot at 88 degrees. I was in a constant sweat, and everything metal in the sun was extremely hot to the touch. So Bob and I just hung out under the easy-up I brought with. Even Bob didn’t feel like flying, but we finished fixing his Trex 450.

Which reminds me, I need to find a pinion gear for his Blade 450, and it’s on backorder. Go figure!

Our heli fun fly is this weekend…and it’s going to be hot! 90+ degrees! Yuck! Oh well, with the weather a month ahead…maybe August / IRCHA will be much cooler! Like September weather. That is my prayer!
