Couple of flights.

Inverted still scary. Go one length and turn heli .

Vibe reduces from 1.1 to 0.7 after adjusting blade tightness. No wind.

Well September is almost over and fall is finally here!

Earlier this week, Bob and I got together to work on his Whippy. He ordered a new 990 carb, hoping that would fix it. And as luck (Murphy’s Law) would have it, there was a scratch on the cylinder wall from the boss pin retainer. This caused a slight loss in compression, hence the reason why his motor wouldn’t idle. So he sent his motor in for repairs.

I finally finished my Whiplash Nitro this last Friday. Saturday...

Strip. Head and check bearings are free. Add vaseline to shaft . No longer shake on spool down.

3 flights.
setup is perfect. 0.6 to 0.9 vib depending on wind maybe.
Control rudder and elevator during inverted forward flight. Manage full run inverted.

Try multiple flips and nearly crash. Saved by sl .
