Heli-Log 3:29:12

Posted 03-29-2012 at 07:03 PM by rcnut

The end of this month is close in hand, and once again April 1st is on a Sunday! I love to prank the pastors at church on April Fools' Day!

Now that my 6HV is flying, I've been trying to find some Gen Ace packs, but everyone is out! So while reading a thread about electric heli's, the topic of Gravity packs came to light and comparison to the Gen Ace packs was made. It also said the Gravity packs might have been made in the same factory as the Gen Ace batteries. So I ordered a set...

Sunday was a blast! Headed out after church to meet up with Bob and Greg. Weather was a bit cooler, but less windy!

Tested out the 6HV after some minor adjustments. Now it's flying better, but the head speed isn't exactly where it should be. The packs I'm using are getting old...I think, need some new ones! So I set the 6HV aside and flew my Protos 500 some, about 4 flights worth! That little heli is supper fun for a 500 size heli.

Then it was time (in between flights...

A lot has happened since my last post. So, first up is my new Compass 6HV...

I did a driveway hover test to make sure the motor was spinning in the right direction...it wasn't. No biggie, swapped to motor wires and everything is fine. I did a two minute hover at normal throttle and everything seemed ok, then tried idle up 1 & 2. Once there is proper head speed, this heli comes to life! The tail seemed a bit sensitive, so I adjusted the gain down. However, I didn't have enough...

Need some Turbine Spares

Posted 03-23-2012 at 09:56 PM by lperagallo

I am offering up some Wren 44 Turbine spares that came from either my kero conversions, like a couple FADECs, Propane tanks, Pumps, etec and a few new pumps if yo are interested. To see them, go to www.circlecityhelis.com and look under turbine spares. There are also some miscellaneous offerings on rotor blades and of course a full line of Align Trex helicopter kits and parts as well as some GAUI stuff.

New store opening

Posted 03-19-2012 at 11:22 AM by lperagallo

Looks like Indianapolis has gone from winter if that's what they call it directly to summer. Not that I am complaining, but 80 degrees! Kind of hot. It certainly has been fun to be able to get out after work as well as spending the day at the field with the club members. Been some good flying as well as a rash of nasty crashes.


I also thought I'd do some cheap advertising by announcing the opening of my second online store serving he li freaks. The store is www.circlecityhelis.com....
