Well...

It's not looking good with my electric starter. The brush cable, strands of braided copper wire, is tempered and worn. Meaning they need to be replaced. It's just a matter of time before it breaks. So, I could go ahead and fix it the best that I can or spend the money for a new Hobbico Torquemaster 90 electric starter. I'm also looking at replacing my Whiplash muffler, another $270.00! Grrr!

Bob hung out with Jerry yesterday, thinking I was in church and would...

17 more days till IRCHA!!! YEA Baby!

I’m trying to get my helis in line before IRCHA, but it’s not easy! The Rave, Compass 6HV, and Protos 500 are good to go, not that I will be bringing all of them…

The Compass 3D+…wow…it’s really getting on my nerves! However, I may have fixed the fuel leak issue…finally! I’ll have to perform the bench test to see if it’s fixed [versus test flying it]. Went out flying with BOB Saturday (yesterday), early morning, due to a wedding...

Happy 4th of July!

Well, its a day after the 4th! It has been awhile since my last post...almost a month. Bob and I have managed to get many flights on his Whiplash worry free. I'm at the point of performing medium aerobatics and some light 3D. My Whiplash had a couple of issues that surprised me... First, Bob, Mark, and myself went to St. Charles to the Al's Fun Fly (suburbs of Chicago). The fun fly was on Friday & Saturday. We arrived early Friday morning only to find plankers...

So here we are…the start of June, half way through the year…and the weather is still crappy!

Got out flying this last weekend for a change, Saturday was a cloudy / sunny mix that eventually cleared up, but not until the end of the day. There were times it looked and felt like it was going to rain, and then the sun came out for a bit. It was like that all day, until 5:00 PM, then the clouds started breaking up.

In the meantime…Wed./Thur. I was helping Bob program his...

Managed to get out yesterday...without the guys [kinda feel bad], but I needed to get in some practice time of my own. So I went to the flying field betting no one would be there (plankers). And I was right, I had the whole field to myself.

I didn't have much time as the weather kept changing...sunny, then overcast, the sun would peek out, those nasty clouds would cover it up...again! The weather report stated scattered thunder showers, and they were right. However, I did manage...
