Heli-Log 7:30:2012

Posted 07-30-2012 at 02:27 PM by rcnut

16 more days until IRCHA!!!

Saturday was a great day to fly! I met up with John Cook and then later, Eric Brandenburg. I basically flew my Compass 3D+…and one flight on my 6HV. I studied some of the maneuvers John was doing, wanting to copy some of them for more transition type maneuvers. We discussed how learning that one maneuver / orientation can unlock a host of new possibilities.

With me, it was learning to fly right side up backwards. I could do it, but I was...

How ironic...23 days to IRCHA and it's the 23rd of July!

Yesterday was another great day! Saturday started out not so good. I took all 3 nitro heli's out to continue breaking motors in, but disaster struck! I started with my Trex 700, first flight, 3 minutes into the flight, I pulled into a gentle back flip and heard a crunching noise. The motor revved up and I started loosing head speed! Crap...caught inverted once again. I managed to flip right side up and now most of the head speed...

First Flyable Config

Posted 07-21-2012 at 06:52 AM by jolyboy

This is the first flyable configuration I did. I have done revised versions of this for better CoG, but now I'm in the process of upgrading to flybarless due to the horrible quality of the blue rotors (bearings jamming, screws breaking ). The new rotors will be Tarot 450DFC heads, which allow better pitch range than the flybarred heads and much less slop.

Heli-Log 7:16:2012

Well here we are at the start of week three, of July…only 30 more days till IRCHA!!! I’m still praying this hot weather will leave / change by then.

In the meantime…I finished the rebuild on my YS motor and reinstalled it into the Rave. This last weekend, I was invited to fly at Jerry’s place…wow, I’ve been dreaming of a place just like his! He has an actual hanger along side of his house, big enough for two Cessna’s. However, Jerry likes big airplanes, scale airplanes, both military...
