Ha, figured out the t8fg! It was in my assignment. Once I stumbled across it, it all became pretty simple.
Don't look like I get to upgrade my radio after all. Really like that mz-24.

Just got to wait for some more servo's to show up. I only burnt out 2 doing all this shit!

The mini, the new motor shows up along with the servos.

Discovered a pretty cool tip with this motor. It uses those 0-ring bands to secure the prop. Those thing wear out like crazy.
A guy posted to use the same surgical tubing they use for therapy exercise. It comes in 5 different resistance. I selected on foot of the blue and black tubing.
You just use some edge cutters to cut 1/8th inch wide bands.
Each cost just a little over a buck and free shipping! F'n love free shipping.

They're on schedule to release next month. He's still working on the motor combo. Started out as 4s, which I have plenty of. Now, he's settling in on 6s.
As I got in on pre-order, whatever motor package he settles on the price is the same.
Price will go up after pre-order he says. The final mold cost went up.
German epp foam, uv resistant.
Canards are functional.

This is the reason I wanted to get into wings. Can't wait!

Dude! Wondered where you've been?
Funny thing, following Gold Rush, Parker wanted to buy his own claim. After the show was over, he was having second thoughts, I think.
No guarantee to paydirt is consistent, and even if it is, once it's mined the land is next to worthless.
Wonder what he's done.
Plus, at just $1100 an oz, hard to make money. Thought I heard them explain $1200 an oz was the cut off point, depending on quantity per yard, but a high was $30 per yard.

I will have a look at several claims in the area. I wont be running HUGE equiptment like Parker or have a crew so the gold will go further to keep me afloat. Ill also be bringing a geologist with me to look at the claims. $2 a pan is what they say I be bringing my pan to see for myself.

Holy crap - everyone is still alive? I may have been grounded for awhile but I haven't forgotten my heli buddies...

Actually in the process of getting the 600 back in the air and possibly building a 250/450 again and shooting for my first flybarless.

- Mike

Hey, Mike! Glad to see you back, buddy.

Sutt, decided you needed some inspiration.

Inspiration to try harder, fly better, or to purchase something new?

I can't do the first two, since I'm flying almost every day as it stands, and have no interest in simming, and at that rate I only get better ever so slowly.

As for whether to purchase something new, I keep thinking of a 700, but then I also keep thinking, what for? For some presence in the air I have my 600 for every now and again, and it seems big enough. For my day to day beater my 550 just keeps on going strong. Can't fault it for reliability.

Yes all my helis are dated now, but all are still far more capable than I, and I'm not a slave to the latest and greatest.

Until 5 years ago, when I got a new TV, I was still using a 4:3 tube TV, from 30 years ago, and I still thought I was wasting money when I finally threw it away and went with a large flat screen panasonic.

In those 30 years, well 27 I think, I had repaired it three times, and it was faulty again, but I knew what was wrong with it, but I just thought, ah stuff it, who can be bothered with a TV so old.

I think my helis might well outlast me.

Just busting your chops, Andrew. Not many people have the mad skills of Jason Bell. Just thought it was a fun vid to share.
I'm sure your skills would improve beyond incremental at this stage if you had a corporate sponsorship and didn't have to think about stuffing one in. Even so, how does somebody develop those skills? I think you have to be born with it. I know my eyes could hardly keep up with his heli. My addled mind never could.

Yup. So chuffed to see all these old faces still here and doing well. Blown away to see HeliYea posting, never will forget his living room hovers... LOL

Definitely better than it has for awhile on my front. Kinda took to the firearms hobby a bit the past few months but working on getting the AHF back in the air. Last time I had it out a rip in the clump line caused a dramatic stall and err... landing. Got away with minimal damage (tail hub of all things?), just need better blades since every set I have causes a nasty wobble.

Gonna attempt a flybarless budget 450 PRO build here as soon as everything comes. Get my feet wet.

So much nicer flying FBL! I'm falling out of love a bit with the 450, only size related though. Make sure you won't be better off with a 500!

Look at me talking you into wanting a bigger heli already And so it begins!! (Ducks incase Jack is about to drop in!). Hope that particular founding father is well. Been too long since we heard off him
