Heli-Log 3:23:13

Special addition!

I received a phone call from Dan wanting me to test fly their team project airplane. Yep...once again The Northen ILLinois University (NIU) Engineering students built another experimental aircraft. This year they decided to go with an electric motor and a simple aircraft design. They modeled it after the Sig Cadet, but is looks more like a C130 transport. There building skills are improving and I gave them thumbs up for their design and improved building technique....

Can you believe this?...this month is almost over! Ten more days!

Agile 7.2 As it turned out, it was a good thing Bob called as I forgot about finding a place to mount the LiPo battery for the electronics. I tried to mount the LiPo pack up front, like the manual shows, but the pack is too long and the canopy hangs up on it. There is a plate at the rear under the boom that is an alternative location, so I installed it there. I had to remove the plate to remove the coating on the plate…so...

Come on warmer weather!!! I am so tired of the cold...

Agile 7.2 build So I put Bob’s heli aside as I was waiting for a replacement tail output shaft, and started in on my new Agile 7.2 electric heli. This is one interesting heli, to say the least. At first glance, it looks as if there’s a coating on the carbon fiber, a wax coating? All the metal parts are machined nice and shiny or they’re anodized. It seems there are a lot of smaller baggies of screws, washers, grub screws, and...

The weather is finally getting warmer! Hopefully the sub artic temperature have ended!

Trex 700N And now comes the hard part… My Whiplash gasser is a lot of fun to fly and being a gas heli, flight times are around 18 minutes! That would be hard to beat as a nitro, not to mention nitro cost is a lot more than gas or Colman fuel. My initial plan was to sell my Trex 700N and keep the Rave 90 ENV and the Team Heliproz Nitro heli.

After doing a little research, I found...

As promised...So here we are, a new year, and a new month…March, but not for long! Time is flying by!

Now for a re-cap of last year;

My 6HV, Protos 500, Rave, Trex 700N, and Team Heliproz Whiplash Nitro, and my DJI F450 quad are all stored for the winter. I was trying to have the GoPro working on the quadcopter so I could shoot some nice winter videos...

My Compass 3D+ is still waiting for any type of wrenching, but that may not happen for a while....
