3 Days left for August, and then we start into the fall season...

Well, today was sure a hot one. 94 degrees with some humidity...not a lot, just enough to make you sticky and sweaty. Big puffy clouds and plenty of sun! There was a warm breeze coming out of the south-west...it was nice... But the more important part was the maiden of my new Protos Nitro. This thing is light! It feels tail heavy holding it, but the balance is spot on! I looked everything over one more time, before...

August is almost over...it has gone by so fast. And now the temps will start to fall...


Protos Nitro build…cont.

The cyclic servos installed without much trouble. However, the throttle servo and tail servo are installed up front back-to-back, leaving very little room between them. And the kit comes with those (in my opinion) stupid plastic screws nuts! I’m not a big fan of those…hard to install, and even harder to install once your heli is built and you need...

Another heli build…after IRCHA! And only 7 more days left in this month…

It took less than a week to build my new Goblin Raw, and now the Protos Nitro… This last week was filled with lots of challenges… Work was busy, everybody wanting stuff done all at once (I support 3 labs), and working on my new heli right after work... Having painful issues with my back, and possibly finding out why…more spinal stenosis(). Friday was pretty much non-stop from the time I arrived at work,...

So here we are in the middle of August...after IRCHA

This last weekend was rather nice for a change...compared to the 90+ degree days we are having! Warm weather, low winds, sunny skies, what more could we ask for...no crashes! I took last Monday & Tuesday off to recoup from IRCHA, and this time to start working on my 2 new helis.

Goblin Raw

I arrived home just after noon on Sunday, unpacked the truck, and put away most things. I decided to start...

It's August and another IRCHA is in the books!

I was able to attend IRCHA this year! And it was a blast! A much thinner crowd this year. I think the pilot count was around 370...info from the Saturday pilot's meeting. There were around 13 venders, some selling, most others showing. There was a lot of flying and many great pilots. There was 4(?) food venders there...breakfast at two of them, lunch, and dinner. The pilots dinner was much better! I believe it was from Moe's Southwestern...
