Here we are in February, just that much closer to warmer weather!!


I managed to test fly Bob’s Blade 450 at the start of Februrary. Our weather here is weird, one day it’s warm and then raining, the next it’s snowing and freezing. I needed to fix the blade tracking, which was weird…normally I have it “nailed” on the workbench, but not this time. Ok, blade tracking fixed. Then I noticed there is a fair amount of throttle stick I had to use in order to hover this heli!

Here we are, January 21, 2013…another month almost gone. The sooner the better…I hate the cold and I want to fly!

I received the MKS servos, AR7200BX, Stator Gator, & MultiGov Pro and started installing everything. Installing the servos and AR7200BX is straight forward, no surprises.

I used 3M double sided gray tape...

Here we are…the last day of the year! 12/31/2012

Happy New Year!!!

Once the boom assembly was built, it’s on to the body! The main section of the heli is large in comparison to my Rave or Trex 700. The servo / clutch stack makes up the main center support of the body. What I’ve noticed most, so far into this build, is the precision of the holes drilled for the hex bolts, they are an exact fit! Alignment is very minimal.

The edges of the carbon fiber...

There's a new addition to my heli fleet...

My Whiplash Gasser has finally arrived!!! It took big brown some time to deliver it...compaired to their normal delivery times, but considering the time of year (Christmas) they're very busy. It was well worth the wait!

I was going to leave it closed up in the shipping box and wait until I collect the rest of things I need...no WAY! I just had to see all the parts for myself. WOW, it is impressive for sure. The parts...
