September is close to being half over! Yea! Cooler weather!...

This weekend was a bit messed up weather wise. It was stinkin hot Saturday, and not so bad today, but more humid. And for some reason, I ran out of energy/desire to fly. I charged all 4 packs for the Raw, checked the heli over for anything loose or missing, and checked the belt tensions. It never saw the air today...

I put the Protos on the work bench and swapped out the...

Ah...September! The month the temperature starts changing. Goodby Summer, and hello Fall...

Now that the weather is beginning to change some (well, here in thee Midwest), I might be able to get out more and put up some flights! Yea...I need to start dialing in my new helis, get them the way I like them...and fix some of the problems that I've learned to live with.

I am really falling in love with this heli. It is really locked in, feels...

3 Days left for August, and then we start into the fall season...

Well, today was sure a hot one. 94 degrees with some humidity...not a lot, just enough to make you sticky and sweaty. Big puffy clouds and plenty of sun! There was a warm breeze coming out of the south-west...it was nice... But the more important part was the maiden of my new Protos Nitro. This thing is light! It feels tail heavy holding it, but the balance is spot on! I looked everything over one more time, before...

August is almost over...it has gone by so fast. And now the temps will start to fall...


Protos Nitro build…cont.

The cyclic servos installed without much trouble. However, the throttle servo and tail servo are installed up front back-to-back, leaving very little room between them. And the kit comes with those (in my opinion) stupid plastic screws nuts! I’m not a big fan of those…hard to install, and even harder to install once your heli is built and you need...

Another heli build…after IRCHA! And only 7 more days left in this month…

It took less than a week to build my new Goblin Raw, and now the Protos Nitro… This last week was filled with lots of challenges… Work was busy, everybody wanting stuff done all at once (I support 3 labs), and working on my new heli right after work... Having painful issues with my back, and possibly finding out why…more spinal stenosis(). Friday was pretty much non-stop from the time I arrived at work,...
