The [almost] end of July! Preparations for IRCHA!


Well, July is almost in the books and IRCHA is right around the corner! It’s been a mad-dash to get as much flying in and our helis in order. I ordered the 766 conversion kit with motor, only to find the motors are on back-order. I also decided to buy a new motor for my Whiplash G2 (had to sell some stuff) considering I was fixing it again! Carey has a “run” on gas motors as of late, and he doesn’t have any in stock. I received...

And now for July!


I can’t believe its July already! June went by so fast! The new lawnmower (a John Deer 42” Zero turn) is working great! I have a lot of training (learning) to do with this mower as it is my first zero turn mower. It is a lot faster than my old tractor and cuts better. Mark and I are finally getting out more, and boy, are we “rusty” at the controls. Well, not really, but we are not where we normally are in our flying. Normally at this time of year, we are...

Ah yes…goodbye April, and hello May!...ah, June!


It’s been awhile since I blogged here, but our weather was mostly rain and cold…and with very high wind conditions? So far the rain has moved out of our area for a while, and now we have lots of grass to cut. Boy, if it’s not one thing, it’s another! My lawnmower and weed Wacker have been getting a good workout, but my lawn looks great! Sorry Tru Green! And not only has the weather been uncooperative…things in and around...

Ah yes…March. Happy Pi day!


Once again, we lucked out and were only “side-swiped” by the snow storm that moved across the US. Others are not that fortunate. I haven’t heard how the NIU students did at their competition…

Mark and I ventured indoors on Sunday for some micro heli flying. The day started off by forgetting the charger for the LiPo’s, and breaking all 3 helis. I started with my first mCPx heli and managed to smack into the wall sideways. Well that...

Ah yes…March. The end of winter, or the last month of it…I hope!


It is looking like March will be somewhat normal for us…cold, windy, overcast, more rain/snow showers…yuck. We were spoiled with the warm streak that moved through here a couple of weeks ago, and I watched the East get hit with lots of snow. On another note, the NIU students have built their project airplane for their upcoming contest. They have asked me to once again look/inspect their airplane and perform...
