Heli-Log 6:14:2012

Posted 05-14-2012 at 11:03 AM by rcnut

Finally…some nicer weather to fly in!!! The last three days produced some much needed flying. I’ve watched enough videos and practiced on the sim, but couldn’t fill the need to get out and fly in real time.

My Protos 500 and Compass 6HV are the two heli’s that haven’t needed any attention other than charging batteries and flying. However, the Protos has a new nick-name… It is now called the Green Hornet! Ok, ok…I was having problems seeing my Protos in overcast conditions, with the...

Synergy and Gaui Helis are back in Stock!

Seems like starting an online business in a world of the 'BIG' guys can be frustrating. Been working hard to get www.circlecityhelis.com noticed. While I am getting some traffic, it is hard to get people to buy.

I now have a system that allows me to provide special pricing on many products. Come over and check it out. I am carrying Synergy, Gaui, Align, Castle, KDE, Outrage Torq servos, Rail rotor blades on my helicopter dedicated shop.

If you are into Quads,...

Thurs 5/10/2012.

Nobody was going to the field today besides me. The weather is a beautiful Carolina day around 70 degrees with a slight breeze (and some gusts). Scatter clouds but no rain.

I packed up the car as usual but left all the repair parts and extra tools at home. I'm feeling good!! I expected to only be there about an hour so I left the chairs and canopy at home as well.

Preflight on both birds went without incident. Pulling and pushing, tugging...

Heli-Log 5:9:2012

Posted 05-09-2012 at 09:45 AM by rcnut

I managed to get out for some flying fun last night. I was planning on teaching the new pilots, but it was too windy for them (23+mph wind). I was planning on staying in and working on my 3D+, but “little” Eric said he was heading out…so I met him at the field!

Once again…no plankers! Man, they must have a serious problem with flying in the wind. Oh well, Eric and I had a good time even though the clouds moved in and threatened to rain on us. I flew my 6HV first, I am feeling more...

Went flying last night after work, What a blast we had! Wasn't sure we would be going due to it had been raining most of the day. Met a couple of the guys at the flying field. I was a bit surprised none of the plankers were out…their loss!

I pulled the Compass 3D+ out first. During the first flight I noticed the elevator was acting strange, and shortly after…every time I used the collective, the heli would tilt forward or backwards. The elevator link was coming loose! ...
