The middle of summer fun!

So far our weather, her in the Midwest, is stable...more like what a summer is supposed to be like! Clear skies, light winds, low humidity, and stuck at work! I am definitely getting the heli bug back and can't wait for this weekend to start.

Synergy 556

I finished my Synergy 556 stretched kit Wednesday night. I started the assembly Monday right after IRCHA. It didn't take long to assemble...maybe 12 hours total? The wiring went...

Another great day of flying!

Met a couple of Chicago guys at our field yesterday...due to a NOTAR restriction, air show. This was a treat for Bill and myself, it is nice to meet and fly with other people, well, for Bill it is, I do this all the time. The day wasn't too bad, 82 degrees, light winds, eh, mostly cloudy skies due to threatening thunder storms, and somewhat muggy.

3D Dave brought his Diabolo and Goblin 500, and Jacko(?) brought his Goblin 500 and Synergy...

So it's been awhile since my last blog... A lot has finally happened between now and then. For starters, my back is a lot better...a slow healing process; our weather has finally cleared up; I'm no long a team pilot for MA; IRCHA was a blast; I bought a new heli and sold one, and last but not least...I am going to try my hand at flying in the NATs. So let's get started!

Between Jan. and July, not much has happened other than going back to work on April 1st. It was 5 month off on medical...

Well, here's to a new year of flying and other stuff!

I finally found a couple of HP 1200 power supplies to complete my charging station project. I bought them through Amazon, of all places. I started looking over this project trying to determine the lay-out of everything. I'll include a parts list later on...

So far, both supplies will be placed on both sides of the Cellar Dual PowerLab (8x2) charger, the power lab being in the center of the case. I tried several combinations,...

Hey everyone! Wow, I didn't know this was back up! I have a lot of catching up to do here. So lets get started!

Last year was interesting for sure. I had an AFIB issue and the doctors put me on a beta-blocker. That messed me up! I had a slew of medical issues that followed. I was able to make it to IRCHA, but I wasn't at 100%...more like 40%. Later on I found out that two disks in my neck were ruptured and required surgery to fix it, that was in October. 13 months later, I needed...
