Here we are in June. And summer is almost here, soon, the day's will start getting shorter! Yuck!!!

I’ve been working with Mark trying to overcome some of his fears with orientations. He’s been doing better with counter clockwise circles, but has problems with clockwise. It wasn’t until this last weekend that Mark finally “plowed” through his right hand turns (clockwise). Mark wanted to try a loop, but before he could do that, he needed to enter the loop straight with a little speed…at...

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...
