600's vs 620's

Posted 03-08-2011 at 11:31 PM by nwmtech

I'm a little late on writing this about this last weekend's flying but I had to run down to Kirkland last night for a business meeting and didn't get home until late. While I can't comment on the exact details I can say it had something to do with this hobby and potential career change down the road.

I got out to my local flying spot on Sunday and Monday for about 3hrs each day. I think I burned about two gallons by the end of the weekend. Saturday I went out with intentions of...

The Synergy N5 Contender

Posted 03-02-2011 at 02:36 AM by nwmtech

First official pic of the N5 Contender was released today for you all to see. You guys are going to love this heli. Matt really did a great job of listening to the public and producing a heli that I think will really raise the bar in the 50 class. It's 1/2 a pound lighter than the original N5 with an option for a belt or TT tail. New canopy shape, wider landing gear, and some killer looking new CF frames. Not to mention it's a factory FBL model! Yeah baby! There's also a handful of other small...

Charging Station

Posted 02-25-2011 at 03:06 PM by nwmtech

Got my new charging station finished last night. I'm not a hardcore high powered electric charging guy so I was looking for something very universal, compact, and an all-in-one type setup. I wanted smaller multiple chargers for receiver batterys and a single decently powerful flight pack charger. I found this case at Harbor Freight and it proved to be exactly what I was looking for. I picked up an 850w PSU power supply on Ebay for the heart of the system. It did have to be modded to work but...

Inverted autos!

Posted 02-22-2011 at 02:59 AM by nwmtech

Met a buddy at the local field and really got to hammer out some flights yesterday. Weather was much better. Still a bit windy but all in all not too bad. I some flights on his 6HV helping him getting it all dialed in on VBar 5.1. Turned out quite nice actually and it feels almost identical to how my MB's are setup. We put him on the buddy box and he did some killer inverted flight and his first piro flips. He'd been practicing a ton on the sim and had them down to the tee but just needed a...

Windy but killer pics!

Posted 02-20-2011 at 12:38 AM by nwmtech

Drove down and spent the day at Snohomish today. It was really windy and quite cold so it definitely put a dent in the skills as we were all just pumping out flights more out of sheer spite than anything. We did, however, manage to take over 100 pictures and about 25 of them came out absolutely amazing.

I'm really liking the Edge 603's on the N5. I think I'll bump the pitch up a bit to get a little more pop out of them but the biggest difference is they're much less boggy than...
