Flight #133, #134 & #135

Posted 02-15-2009 at 04:01 PM by ted_wears_a_hat

I flew three packs today, flying fast and high, all great fun. Pack 4 and 5 I had said I was going to practise nose in hovering and was doing great for half of pack 4 then had a near miss. I too quickly tried to get back to nose in without letting my nerves calm and pretty quickly binned it. Usual suspects need changing, feathering shaft and main shaft as well as boom and boom support. The only other thing bust up is the blade grips and I put this down to the fact I was flying with CF blades (tried two new sets today, reviews upcoming) and so the force absorbed by breaking woodies was transferred to the grips instead.

Oh well, s**t happens, fix her up next week ready to fly next weekend again. More Phoenix in the meantime.
