Heli-Log 3:7:2014

Posted 03-07-2014 at 09:21 AM by rcnut

As promised...So here we are, a new year, and a new month…March, but not for long! Time is flying by!

Now for a re-cap of last year;

My 6HV, Protos 500, Rave, Trex 700N, and Team Heliproz Whiplash Nitro, and my DJI F450 quad are all stored for the winter. I was trying to have the GoPro working on the quadcopter so I could shoot some nice winter videos...

My Compass 3D+ is still waiting for any type of wrenching, but that may not happen for a while....

Heli-Log 2:2:14

Posted 03-02-2014 at 03:50 PM by rcnut

I'm back! Sorry I've been gone for a while…a day shy of 3 months! So here we are in March! Come on warmer weather…go away snow!!!

A lot has happened in my absents. So I will get caught up on current events. I'll have one new heli build, a gasser conversion, a generator install on my Whippy and Trex 700N to G conversion, FVP Quad, a Whippy gas troubleshoot and fix, then how to keep my Whippy's flying!

Yea, I have a lot of material to cover! So stay tuned, more to come...

2) rth brings heli back to a "fail-safe" altitude. Can this altitude be user configured? Is it the same as the deck altitude?

3. What happens...
