This last weekends fun

I met Mark, Bob, and Bill at our practice field yesterday (Sunday). Temp was 58 to start and finished at 71 degrees by 4:00 PM. Winds were 0-15 with gusts up to 20 mph. Clear skies for the most part, there was a couple of big clouds that moved through fairly fast.

I showed up 10 minutes before the rest, so now is the time to test out my Whippy #2. I’ve been having clutch problems with it ever since I put this second one together. The motor and...

Our first full day of flying…FINALLY!

Saturday was a great day for flying here in the Midwest! Sunny skies, light breeze (that turned nasty for a short while), and warm! 78 degrees!!!

Mark and I met for breakfast at 7:00 AM, then we headed out to our practice area with lunch (tailgate grilling), pop-up tents, and heli's. After we setup camp, I wanted to try out my second Whippy with the RC300 motor and Jewel generator system.

This Whippy is one smooth...

Sunday, The first May weekend

I met Mark at our practice area after church. The day started out overcast with the threat of rain, but it never happened. The sky managed to clear up mostly, just after 1:30 PM. My heart wasn't into flying...but I stayed to help out Mark. I told him what was bugging me and he proceeded to get me in the air anyways. We placed a call to Bob and ask if he was coming out, he said he was on his way. Just as Mark and I were getting ready to start our heli's,...

The last day of April!


I took a while for the weather to clear up and provide some nice days of flying. I mounted the Jewel generator system with 2 super bright LED’s and a volt meter. Now was the time to see if this system would charge my LiPo…a Relion 5200mAh square pack that needed charging. I met the guys (Bob and Mark) at Mr. C’s for breakfast and we talked about what we wanted to accomplish for the day. We arrived at our practice field only to find park flying plankers...

My Trex700G maiden!

So the day finally arrived…maiden time! The weather decided to play nice, semi warm, mostly sunny, with 5-10 mph winds. Mark was busy fly his Whiplash gasser, Bob was chatting with Bill, John, and Steve. So I arriving last, no one was in a hurry to bother me just yet, so I pulled out my Trex700G and proceeded to fill the tank full of gas. I pumped the bulb until there was a solid stream of full returning back to the tank. One final look at everything, including...
