Finally got the blades spinning, its on a lazy-suzan, but still, you know.
Gotta study Bob's vid on setting the Jr770. It still winter over here so I have
a bit of time in front of me.

And I took the KBDD dampners off for now, had the darness time trying to
take off the spindle, even manage to slap me in the face in the process,
my hand sliped, put the delrin back in, without hurting myself.

Hey, good work. I forgot to ask before... is this your first heli?

The 770 is easy to setup and it's an awesome gyro.

Syl... it's not too cold to fly.

We were out on Lake of the Wood, ON today ... mostly flying helis but there were a couple of planks as well. Started snowing heavily near the end (and a problem with the crank nut coming loose despite thread locker and a lock washer) so I didn't get my big monster into the air... I did get it started though!!

The Atom 500 got it's legs stretched instead.
