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...

Here we are in September...the days are getting shorter and the weather will start getting cooler.

Labor Day weekend…

The last day of August I was asked to work, so no flying that day…besides, it was hot and humid and I wanted to work on my new Whiplash Nitro. Sunday, Sept 1st, I went to church in the morning, and I was thinking of heading to the club flying field for some test flights. However, it was very muggy and warm, and I needed to get gas for the truck. So after...

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,...
