Well, April is quickly leaving us! Just over one week left and…

Ok as a re-cap… My Synergy N7 had several issues I have finally worked out! (fan hub, foam tape on the VX1n, and the O.S. carb problems) The O.S.105HZ-R problem is finally gone; however, the motor is no longer a pumped motor, just an O.S.105HZ. I tried almost every combination with the pumped motor version and couldn’t get it tuned right; it was close…but never there. I tried using the carb from a blown up O.S.91HZ motor...

April! Ah yes, the smell of spring and the birds chirping once again!

After the B-Ham fun fly, I went through some of my helis to prepare them for the next time out to the flying field. The Synergy, I removed the main needle valve and regulator. I disassembled both and used alcohol to thoroughly clean everything. I may have found some tiny bits of junk in the regulator sitting on the clean paper towel I was using.

The second Goblin gasser, I removed the factory tape...

Now it’s almost the end of March! Come on warmer weather!!!

Well my N7 dilemma continued until Friday the 20th. I dropped the motor only to find the hub was spinning on the motor shaft. A check of the nut…and it was tight! Great, I trashed the hub, but wait, there’s more! I thought I had shrunk down (crushed) the hub enough that it would spin with enough torque from the motor. So I tried to use a washer under the nut.

That didn’t work, the hub spun off the second I...

So here we are in March already!

Mark is in the Florida keys on a family vacation! He told me it was 84 when they arrived. Yea…nothing like rubbing it in. LoL! So while Mark is gone for a week, its time to get my helis ready (and myself) for the B-Ham fun fly later this month!

I started out with the Rave in the hopes that bearing noise was finally gone. It was! Oh the horror! I ordered a new bearing set for my O.S.105HZ from RCBearings. When I removed the main bearing,...

My Synergy N7 build…the final touches and…the maiden flight!...and the NIU students experimental aircraft...

So on with last nights' build/finish... I started with powering up the Spartan Vortex to run through its' programming and discovered the second satellite wasn't working? For some reason, it wasn't bound, that or I have an issue with the cable going to it. So I started off with binding both satellites, and after several tries, It was finally bound.

At this point,...
