TRex 500 Static issue

Posted 02-23-2008 at 11:32 PM by TGibe (The Grass Is Brown Everywhere)

I am getting very nervous about my TRex 500 order. The 500 forum is buzzing (no pun intended) with folks who have had the problem and it makes me wonder if the order was such a good idea...

My kit should arrive next week and then I am probably looking at a 3-4 week build out (due to work and golf commitments) my hope is that we will get some kind of definitive answer to what is causing the problem and what can be done to avoid it.

It seems like there should be an answer....

Give up some beauty sleep?

I'm trying to talk my self into going to the Hobby Hangar indoor fun fly tonight. It starts at 23:30 and goes until 02:00.

I'll have to go get my Blade CX back from my boss unless I talk him into going. I'm trying to get him hooked on helis. He has two very young children and keeps complaining he does not have time. I think he needs to get his priorities straight.

The Wingtote Medium Heli Bag is a great solution for storing and transporting your helicopter.

The bag comes with re-inforced plastic sides (all 4 corners) that slide into zippered "pockets" inside the bag. Once they are installed (5 minutes of work), they turn the bag into a pretty solid box. The lid closes via dual zippers, which makes it easy to open quickly. The Wingtote Heli Bag has both a short carrying handle...

A simple "Thank You" to a fellow member.

I would like to say another heart felt "Thanks" to member "SPORK". He once again has come to my rescue dealing with a scammer and has secured a refund for me that I thought impossible. He has asked me to keep it low tone to which I will comply. I would say simply that those who do not think he should get involved have not had the great experience of having their hard earned money returned to them when there was little hope. Thanx again my friend. Hats off to you.

To SIM or not to SIM

Posted 02-21-2008 at 04:47 PM by TGibe (The Grass Is Brown Everywhere)

I need to get back on the SIM as the last time I was out I got a little freaked out fearing high-speed contact with mother earth. After stressing over this for a few days, trying to understand why, I think it is becaseu I haven't been on the SIM in weeks...

But the SIM is nowhere near the amount of fun as flying, so I hold out for that...

Hopefully, I can start practicing on the SIM again now that I have forward flight and stall turns down. I guess I should start practicing...
