Heli-Log 8/31/2013

Posted 08-31-2013 at 07:41 AM by rcnut

The last day of August!

My new Whiplash Nitro is well under way! This kit is just beautiful! It’s amazing how the anodized parts processed in a different color (other than aluminum’ish color) brings a whole different look. The deep rich red color makes the clutch liner in the clutch bell stand out (a light blue liner). I wish I had the motor to finish the install, but it will come soon enough.

There are subtle touches added to this kit…like the phrase “Team Heliproz”...

With August almost in the books...recap of the week after IRCHA...

So now that I’m home, it is time to find out what is going on with my Whiplash, why is the throttle servo acting up! Come to find out, the spark plug was damaged enough to cause interference with the servo…considering it is so close to the motor. I bought a new spark plug and haven’t had a problem since. Go figure…

I was able to get 3 flights in before disaster happened with my Whiplash. The elevator...

Hey everyone! I know it’s been awhile since my last post…like in the middle of IRCHA! Everything got crazy, there was shopping to do, deals to be made, freebie stuff to collect, demos to watch, friends to talk to, new friends to make (I made several), good food to eat, etc. So…Bob and I managed to get a couple flights in before everyone started piling in. Mark showed up around 12:00 noon, we met him and helped setup his area. My mission for the week was to get both Whiplash gassers flying perfectly,...

Extolling the virtues of XT150 connectors

Posted 08-23-2013 at 11:03 AM by TheBum (TheBum's Hangout)

It's been a long time since I've had anything useful to blog, but I figured this was worth the effort.

After a recommendation by a couple of folks on the Compass forum, I decided to use XT150 connectors on my 7HV instead of the EC5s I was originally planning to use. There are fewer unnecessary connections with the XT150s and they're capable of carrying much higher current, which should make for better power transfer and less connector and wire bulk. They're also considerably less...

A little about me

I have been fascinated with all things RC since I can remember. As a child I remember staring at the Cox glow powered models in the Sears Christmas Catalog year after year. Finally, one year for my birthday, my Father took me to a local hobby shop where we purchased a glow powered control line plane and I've been hooked ever since.

Later, as I was able to purchase models on my own, I tried cars, planes and even a Hirobo glow heli which proved to be too much for me in the days before...
