Sorry for the delays guys.... Life got in the way again for a little bit. I got some vids shot on servo setup / head setup but not done enough yet to post those. I should be getting a bunch up this week though. I want to get this thing done as I want to take it to IRCHA so I may have to take a vacation day or 2. In my job since I am involved with supporting launching new products CRUNCH time always comes in spurts and it has been one of those crunch times. Heck my Boss even asked me if I would delay my vacation to go to IRCHA. Had to say no this time around.

Bob

I have been in WINDOWS HELL this week...

As some of you noticed or maybe not, I have not been around much the last 3 days. Been freakin rebuilding my PC again due to a Windows update issue and freakin MS licensing. They wanted me to PAY for another version of Windows 7 because I have reinstalled over 10 times in the last 6 months... BS... Finally got through that but had to do a full reinstall again... Been a total pain.

My windows install got hosed because of me and my desire to HACK stuff and tweak to my liking. Something I did would not allow windows updates to work and MAN... tried everything including letting a Windows guy from MS get on my PC which I NEVER have had to do before. In the end a FULL install was required. The reason I had problems was because I had a Win7 upgrade CD not a retail and after scraping my disk of all versions of windows it would not work. Had to deal with MS for HOURS to convince them I was upgrading still... BS....

Its been HELL and once again I am super behind on videos because of it

Bob

Don't worry Bob, take your time. I only hope you make your self clear and the next time you need a reinstall you won't have to argue with them again.

8 videos posted! Sorry for the long delay of a few weeks. Wanted this ready for IRCHA so had to spend last weekend going for it and focusing on the build. More to come this week!

Videos posted:
Servo setup, Head build and setup, tail assembly build.

A few more to do.... Throttle servo setup, tail rotor setup with the Align 780, and electronics placement. It's tight for IRCHA but I think I can make it. If not some may be shot at IRCHA

Hey Bob, The link for Bag 3 & 4 Part 4 reads as bag3_4_part5.wmv, where it needs to be bag3_4_part4.wmv. Keep up the good work, cheers Mac.

OK so I am not going to finish the videos before leaving for IRCHA Saturday morning the 7th at 4:00 AM.

BUT I am bringing everything with me so I will do the remaining videos at CAMP HELIFREAK at IRCHA! Should be fun actually! Something different to mix it up a bit...

There are too many people that have asked me to fly my Fury at IRCHA that I HAVE to finish it
So the vids will be shot Monday / Tuesday as I finish the bird.....

I will see if Will James internet connection and my old laptop have the ability to compress and process the videos at IRCHA and post them while there. Otherwise they will be posted on my return

Bob
