Good Day, Bad Day!!!

Posted 03-30-2008 at 06:04 AM by aussiemick (Micks corner)

Went for a fly this morning down on the sunny Gold Coast.
While flying my TRex600NP I managed to successfully do a couple of firsts for me.
First up was a "relatively" controlled 1/2 PiroFlip, from an inverted climbout to right way up, managed that a few times and they even looked a bit controlled. Then went the full monty and did a full one, OMG, something I was thinking was going to be REAL hard to get under control (I fly Mode1) is actually doable!! Just to prove that...

New Blades for the little Rex

Posted 03-26-2008 at 07:45 AM by aussiemick (Micks corner)

I trashed a set of V-Blades on the weekend when a tail rotor ground strike made the tail pulley slip on the tail shaft causing the full and absolute trashing of my blades. They had already lasted through about 3 biggish crashes and numerous tip overs on failed autos.
Today at my LHS I saw a set of Radix blades and thought I'd give them a whirl. I had to install the blades with 2 of the included 0.15mm thick spacers into each blade grip, but I think this is normal.
Will have to wait...

Fan assembly slipped

Posted 03-19-2008 at 08:16 AM by aussiemick (Micks corner)

Went for a fly on Sunday morning and got through the first flight absolutely fine even tried my first successful half a piroflip from inverted to upright.
Second flight started up the heli and whilst holding the head from turning gave the throttle a couple of short blips. On the third blip it felt like the clutch let go. Walked out to the flight line and tried to spool up but the engine stalled (that is my biggest hate of nitro). Went back to the pits to restart and got nothing.
On...

Got a new Canopy

Posted 02-29-2008 at 06:24 AM by aussiemick (Micks corner)

My new Agloco Canopy from Canomod arrived today.


Now I'm going to have to get a set of the Red (orange) landing skids.

Oh well I'm sure there is something else I will need!

Hopefully I will get more than a few flights out of this canopy.
