Heli-Log 9:25:2012

Posted 09-26-2012 at 08:31 AM by rcnut

Saturday here in the Midwest was quite windy, gustier that steady. However, that didn’t stop Bob and I from wrenching on his heli’s. I upgraded Bob’s little Blade 450 3D heli with a better gyro. Last weekend I removed all the dual rates and most of the expo on everything. Then tried some tail maneuvers to see if the stock gyro could/would handle backward flight, it didn’t...well, to a point, then the tail blew out. So we installed a different gyro…a Hitec 5000. We harvested it from one of his Trex...

Well yesterday wasn't all that exciting… I Met Bob at a restaurant for breakfast, then we headed out to our practice field. The winds started to pickup and made the rest of the day not as enjoyable.

Bob talked to me about adjusting his Blade 3D Pro for more performance on Saturday night. So the next day, I readjusted his setting in his radio. I took out all the dual rate settings, left a little Expo to soften the center, increased the collective, aileron, and elevator controls...

Heli-Log 9:16:12

Saturday was a beautiful day to fly! The temperature was 81 degrees and the wind were 5-10 mph. Bob and I meet at my house to solder on some dean connectors on 3 batteries he bought from John. Then we headed to out our practice spot to get some serious flying in. John Cook and Eric Brandenburg meet us there and the flying was off the hook!

Eric had rebuilt his 7HV that he flew in the XFC. A couple of adjustments and his heli was flying great. John was having a blast with his 7HV and...

Heli-Log 9:10:12

What a nice weekend!

Bob and I attended the NIRCHA (Northern ILLinois Radio Controlled Heli...) fun fly, in Belvidere ILL. Not a lot of people attended due to the winds, 15-25 mph. It was a lot of fun hanging out with friends and watching others fly. I took my Rave, Compass 3D+, and Compass 6HV.

I had 4 great flights on the Rave, 2 on the 3D+ with a minor mishap, and 2 on the 6HV. The next day, I traded my 3D+ for the Protos 500. It was still windy, 10-20 mph, but had...

Well here it is September…already.

The weather here in the Midwest was cloudy and rainy at times Saturday, cloudy and windy Sunday, then sunny and hot Monday. Saturday started off by helping one of our club members to finish building his Trex 450 Pro V2 combo kit. The kit comes with Align mini servos, Align’s 3GX…version 1.1, Align blades, motor and BEC/ESC.

Most of the usual subassemblies are built at the factory. Nick did a great job at assembling his new heli and...
