Heli-Log 5:21:2013

Posted 05-21-2013 at 02:54 PM by rcnut

Saturday was a crappy and great day. I started the day with working 8 hours. That was a long and frustrating day! When I got out of work, I was tired and cranky, I just wanted to go home, take a nap and be left alone. Well I didn’t do that, instead, I made it home and saw the package from A Mains Hobby sitting on my porch. The blades I ordered showed up! Great, but I’m still a bit grumpy.

I packed up my truck with 3 heli’s and the new set of Cyclone blades and met the guy’s at our...

Only 4 more days to the middle of this month…where is the time going??

Gee…where do I start first… Ok, the Rave is performing well. I have many flights on it (don’t remember exactly how many flight I have without looking at my log-book) and the break-in process is half done. I received and changed out the Total-G for the AR7200BX…sweet unit! I found some mechanical errors (linkage length issues) that I will address later; it’s out by that much. Outside of that, my Rave is flying very...

Here we are...the last day of April

Ok campers…a lot have been happening to my heli fleet, for the exception of two heli’s…the Protos 500 and Compass 6HV.

My Whiplash is running and flying a lot better. I still need to find out what is going on the throttle governor, doesn’t seem to be working. Outside of that, I plan on flying the next 3 gallon through it and then change the muffler to the Quick Draw Pipe, for an extra 2 HP!

My Rave has the new O.S....

Heli-Log 4:28:2013

Saturday (yesterday), 67 degrees, 0-5 mph winds, cloudy then cleared up.

Last weekend I met Mark, a new heli pilot in training. He came out with his two heli’s, and I brought two, my Whiplash and Rave…before a motor transplant. I watched Mark fly (hover) some to get an idea of where his skill set is.

Then I pulled out my heli’s and did a little “whaling” on them. That got Mark’s full attention very quickly! He couldn’t stop smiling, that made me feel good. So we spent...

Sunday…60 something degrees, winds 25+ mph gusting to 35+!

Bob and I went over to friend’s house for a little show and tell…my Whiplash Gasser! Jerry has several gas heli’s (2 MA 1005’s, an older Hirobo, and a Vario, from what I saw). Jerry was interested in seeing my Whiplash from everything Bob had told him earlier in the month. When we showed up, the first things out of Jerry…did you bring your Whiplash and are you going to fly it?

We spent an hour looking over the...
