Heli-Log 8/31/2013

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,...

Heli-Log 8:1:2013 IRCHA!!

Day one (Tuesday) arrived at IRCHA, and setup camp. Most of the flight line was filled!!! After we picked our spot, it was time to find Raja and Doug Darby. I found Raja and spent about an hour talking and watching him fly. It was apparent I still have some work to do on my Whippy.

I met Adam and discussed setup issues with my MultiGov...Adam says no problem, we'll get fixed. So Raja said to fly my Whippy. First flight was going good until I started autos. The third auto sounded funny...

Whiplash Electric update…

I bound the AR7200BX with the satellite, used a spare servo first to see if it would work versus ruining a new MKS servo, and it worked. Then I plugged the ESC in, no smoke. Next step, I plugged to 6 cell packs and the ESC went through its start up…counting the number of cells. I slowly advanced the throttle stick to see if the motor would spin and it did!!! So far, so good…

Afterwards, I disconnected everything and mounted the cyclic servos,...
