Back to school

Posted 04-19-2011 at 03:04 PM by nwmtech

I've been doing a fair amount of flying lately in-between the rainy days but nothing really over the top. Got a chance to fly out at the LFC yesterday and get a new pilot's 600n in the air with him on the buddy box so that was cool. I've been trying to get out a couple nights a week for some FAI style flying under the lights at a local school parking lot with the Fusion. I know for a fact it will pay off in the end but I'd be lying if I said it was "fun". I guess all the more flying...

Edge 623's, SAB 620's, Maverikk G5 FBL 620's Review

Posted 04-04-2011 at 05:19 PM by nwmtech

So my friend Justin and I did a little bit of a fun test on Sunday with his Logo and my N5. For fear of having a skewed result due to the insane power I decided to use the N5 as I've spent more time on it and am very familiar with how it flies. We set them up at the exact same headspeed. We then did a single flight each and landed to change blades every 2min. We tested the Edge 623 FBL blades, the SAB 620 Hard 3D FBL blades, and the Maverikk G5 Pro 620 FBL blades. We were allowed to do whatever...

Fusion review, Scorpion 90HV ESC review, BeastX Precomp

Posted 04-04-2011 at 04:50 PM by nwmtech

Now that I've got a fair amount of flights on the Fusion I feel I can give an accurate overall review of it. In my opinion it's probably one of the best bang for the buck helis out there. I got an opportunity to do a bunch of back to back testing yesterday with a good friend of mine and his Logo 600 and I have to say that did not see any advantage whatsoever in having the Logo except for weight. The current setup I ran is pretty heavy at about 8.5lbs but on 620's you really don't notice it. I...

Fusion maiden

Posted 03-28-2011 at 03:09 AM by nwmtech

Managed to get the Fusion barely finished up in time to squeak one flight in this evening. I drove down to Isaquaah last night for a business meeting and didn't get home until after midnight so that really put a dent in my building time. I didn't have time to mess with the gov in the Scorpion so I just flew it in regular throttle curves.

Maiden went without a hitch and (as always) the MicroBeast was flew ridiculously well on the first flight. I was able to comfortably fly at...

Fusion 50!

Posted 03-22-2011 at 09:58 AM by nwmtech

It was a pretty busy weekend as I've got a bunch of remodeling things to deal with at home and it was my wife and I's anniversary but I did manage to get out to the field for a bit on Saturday and yesterday. Nothing super special about Saturday except that it was just a great day flying. The N5 was running flawless and I was really just enjoying flying it. I grenaded the motor in the 700n a couple days prior to that so it was a solo day for the N5. Yesterday I hit the Lynden club and was helping...
