Live from IRCHA…Yea Baby!

Day 1

I made it to IRCHA! A little later than I had planned. I saw a semi roll-over on 65 in the North bound lane, and construction was everywhere throughout. Plus there is that one hour time change…for me.

As I was pulling, I had to take a bunch of pic's for Mark…teasing him! Mark was at work and I thought I would help him out…helping him keeping his mind on work…not IRCHA! LoL! However, he loved them and asked me to keep sending...

5 more days to IRCHA!...well, for me that is!

Our Heli Fun Fly

The 19th & 20th was our rescheduled “Heli’s over Rockford” fun fly. The turnout was ok…8 pilots including myself. We had a great time with only two mishaps on Saturday. The weather was beautiful, 82 degrees 0-5 mph on Saturday and 5-10 on Sunday, with mostly clear skies.

There was a few Goblin heli’s in attendance, but mine was the only gasser and it was the talk whenever I went up. They...

Well this month is just about half over! And IRCHA is 23 days away! (22 for me!)

Went out flying with the guys yesterday (Sunday) after a long 10 hours at work! Brought my Goblin and Team Heliproz Whiplash (the Team Heliproz Whiplash never made it out of the truck. ). I wanted to see if placing rubber washers under the metal washers would fix the slight fuel leak I was having.

It did in fact! I put in 3 wonderful flights with no leaking. Even though it was warm,...

My Goblin Gasser
________________________________________
First flight with the governor was a success! I might switch to a Stator Gator down the road, but for now, it is working great. I set the head speed on the low side as I’m still working on breaking in this motor. On the 20th flight, the motor started sounding more powerful. And on flight 22, I increased the head speed to that of my Whiplash settings…1750 normal, 1850 idle...

As we arrived, we were greeted by our wonderful host and CD Cindy and Dennis. After several minutes of conversation, I asked Cindy if it was ok to maiden my new Goblin Gasser. She said no problem! I informed her that I would go to the far end of the runway just in case.

I fueled my Goblin and found a small leak in the fuel return line at the tank. It seeps, but not bad enough to be concerned...
