Well this month is just about half over! And IRCHA is 23 days away! (22 for me!)

Went out flying with the guys yesterday (Sunday) after a long 10 hours at work! Brought my Goblin and Team Heliproz Whiplash (the Team Heliproz Whiplash never made it out of the truck. ). I wanted to see if placing rubber washers under the metal washers would fix the slight fuel leak I was having.

It did in fact! I put in 3 wonderful flights with no leaking. Even though it was warm,...

My Goblin Gasser

First flight with the governor was a success! I might switch to a Stator Gator down the road, but for now, it is working great. I set the head speed on the low side as I’m still working on breaking in this motor. On the 20th flight, the motor started sounding more powerful. And on flight 22, I increased the head speed to that of my Whiplash settings…1750 normal, 1850 idle...

As we arrived, we were greeted by our wonderful host and CD Cindy and Dennis. After several minutes of conversation, I asked Cindy if it was ok to maiden my new Goblin Gasser. She said no problem! I informed her that I would go to the far end of the runway just in case.

I fueled my Goblin and found a small leak in the fuel return line at the tank. It seeps, but not bad enough to be concerned...

Ok… Here we go!

13. I received the throttle servo from Heliproz. Installed and set it up, so that’s done. I found a Futaba GV-1 for sale and bought that. It should be in the mail…I hope.

14. I made the power wires for the LiPo and the receiver. I needed to extend the LiPo power to the rear. I had an extra package of battery wire just for this purpose. I soldered an EC3 on one end and a Dean’s on the other. I made 3 extension wires to go from Dean’s to JR. I placed...

Couple of more days...and this month will be half over! Not to mention, IRCHA is right around the corner!!!

My Goblin Gasser build continued...

10. Programming the cyclic servos! I've done this many times and this time I programmed the servos and Beast X receiver on my workbench versus on the heli...weird! But it worked and the servos are centered. So now the swashplate is nicely centered, then I installed the rotor head and connected the washout arms...hmm, those arms...
