So here we are…the start of June, half way through the year…and the weather is still crappy!

Got out flying this last weekend for a change, Saturday was a cloudy / sunny mix that eventually cleared up, but not until the end of the day. There were times it looked and felt like it was going to rain, and then the sun came out for a bit. It was like that all day, until 5:00 PM, then the clouds started breaking up.

In the meantime…Wed./Thur. I was helping Bob program his...

Managed to get out yesterday...without the guys [kinda feel bad], but I needed to get in some practice time of my own. So I went to the flying field betting no one would be there (plankers). And I was right, I had the whole field to myself.

I didn't have much time as the weather kept changing...sunny, then overcast, the sun would peek out, those nasty clouds would cover it up...again! The weather report stated scattered thunder showers, and they were right. However, I did manage...

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....
