Heli update!

Whiplash Electric: I installed a ZTW Gecko Series 120A HV (High Voltage) Brushless ESC OPTO (No BEC) in my Whiplash Electric that I picked up at the Schaumberg iHobby Show. Why, because I haven’t sent the CC 120 HV opto ESC in yet. I’m a bit leery using a CC ESC in my Whippy…I don’t like fire balls! …or flying smoke booms… So I bought something different to try and now it was time to test it out, not to mention the weather was perfect.

I’m not sure if...

Here we are in October! Man, this year is flying by! I’ve hear rumors this winter could be a bad one…but once again, they’re just rumors!

Ok, my Team Heliproz Whiplash Nitro heli is back in service! I replaced the piston and ring, cleaned the scratches in the cylinder, and installed a new glow plug. First flight everything seemed to be going good. Got down to a ¼ tank of fuel and the motor quit? Oh great, a plug, the piston, what? So I setup for an easy auto, I wasn’t that high or...

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”...
