Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! So here we are in December already! It won't be long now, Christmas is only 21 days away!

Whiplash Electric: On hold…Instead, I used the main gear for Bob’s gasser as he hasn’t ordered a gear for it yet, (other priorities got in the way). I also found the bolt going through the gear hub was sheared off? I gave him my gear set in order for the three of us [Mark, Bob, & myself] could enjoy some flying this last weekend.

Thanksgiving is only 11 days away! Gobble! Gobble!


Whiplash Electric: I ordered the gears that stripped, but haven’t done anything to it. I need to send the CC ESC in for repairs.

Compass 3D+: This is still on the waiting list...back burner.

Rave: I ordered all the parts needed to put this heli back together...however, I need to buy a new muffler. In the crash, the header was bent fairly well. It needs to be replaced. Work more overtime...yuck!...

Well here we are in November…Thanksgiving is only 22 days away! Gobble! Gobble!

I went to the flying field without the guys this time as I wanted to get some personal flying time in. 1) test out 4 heli’s, 2) get 10-12 flights in, and 3) work on some new and old maneuvers…sorry guys. So, first up…

Whiplash Electric: I managed to get two flights out of it before I totally destroyed all the gears on it. I tried all the motor mode settings trying to get rid of the motor...

The last day of October…WOW, that was fast!

This Saturday we turn the clocks back! Ouch! One less hour of daylight, man that sucks! I called Bob Tuesday to see if he wanted to go out flying…it was really nice outside after work. Bob said yes, but needed to finish getting his motor installed and set up. Well that took a 1-1/2 hours and left us with a couple of flights.

I brought my Whiplash Gasser and Electric. First up was the electric, I wanted to see...

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...
