All-in-one field box for nitros

Posted 02-05-2011 at 10:10 AM by nwmtech

It was definitely time to work on a new field box. I load my helis and equiptment in and out of the truck a lot so I've been looking at making something a little more all-in-one. Not to mention the auto tech in me has a bad problem of bringing everything but the kitchen sink to the field so one goal for this season is to be a little more practical and save my back. I think I found a great solution. I went down to Lowes and picked up Stanley mobile work station. The bottom section fits two gallons...

Mounting tapes

Posted 02-04-2011 at 02:17 AM by nwmtech

I put a couple flights in at lunch yesterday and thought I'd pass along what I've found. The 3M 4010 clear double sided tape (gel really) works great. I'm using two layers on both the 700n and the N5 with MB and have had great results. I tried the N5 on the MB included foam with no strap and the results were really bad. I got a lot of drifting on full collective punch outs and lots of cyclic bobbles. I'm sure strapping it down tight would help but there's no spot on the N5 to put a strap on...

Almost perfect

Posted 01-29-2011 at 02:45 AM by nwmtech

Got in a couple of flights at lunch yesterday. The N5 is REALLY close to perfection. The tail is perfect and I made the last couple of tweaks on the head gain settings when I got home. I began running the MultiGovPro in rev-limiting mode instead of regular 3D and noticed a definite improvement. It was most obvious in tic-tocs and the recovery time was much faster. I'm pretty sure I'll be pulling my receivers and running an AR7100r on both helis soon. It just makes sense since I'm running almost...

I'm very excited to announce I accepted a position with Team Syergy. I absolutely love flying the N5 and really like the direction that Matt Botos is taking the company.

Fun Fly wrap up and Microbeast overall impressions

Posted 01-24-2011 at 04:30 AM by nwmtech

I bought a whole lot of 700 goodies from Justin while I was down at the fun fly so I came home and got those all installed. PushGlo, Quick UK canopy mounts, blade stickers, fuel pump, etc. I also dug into and found the cause of a weird glitch I was getting in the motor a couple times. I noticed that I was running a bit lean on the last half of each flight and had tuned to accomidate it at the fun fly so it wasn't a huge deal but in the end it turned out to be the fuel tank plastic bung. I noticed...
