Belt CP Flights #12 & 13 -- BCP meets dirt

Posted 03-14-2009 at 08:03 PM by nasukaren

Weather was beautiful so flew in my local park. Wind was very calm. BCP flew very beautifully. Last night, when I did my rebuild I decided to check my pitch and found out that I had never adjusted my pitch from when I replaced the OEM head with the BCP head. This caused all my pitches to be -5 degrees down. No wonder my pitch curve was wonky. Redid the pitch to give me -7 / 0 / +7.

Took her out to the ball field and had a blast -- until I got too near the pitchers mound and when I tried...

Belt CP Flights #10 & 11 -- BCP meets wagon

Posted 03-14-2009 at 07:58 PM by nasukaren

Flew around more in my backyard last night. Two batteries worth. Getting much better, but at the very end my BCP hit a toy wagon that was at the edge of the yard and bent a feathering shaft and shattered my wooden blades.

Replaced feathering shaft and changed over to Align 325 CF blades.

Belt CP Flights #5, 6, & 7 -- without incident!

Posted 03-07-2009 at 10:59 AM by nasukaren

I went through three 2200 mAh batteries last night -- flew great without incident. I'm really happy with how it flies now. Yay!

My LiPo alarm is warning me well ahead of time. I'm getting around 12-15 minutes before it starts beeping. When I recharge them, I'm putting 1400 mAh or so back in. So that's around 63% of capacity -- very conservative.
