Heli-Log 8:30:2012

Here it is…the last day of August.

Since IRCHA, Bob and I have managed to get and fly after addressing some heli issues. My Compass 3D+ has been acting up. The new tank is fine, but the header tank has a small leak and the motor is still giving me fits. The last flight I had with it, about a week ago, the glow plug lost the element. I replaced the plug and the threads in the head stripped out! Great, now I need to buy a new Thunder Tiger 53 head…or find a used one that I can buy....

The first day at IRCHA…

Once we arrived, we picked out a place to setup. Put up our pop-ups, then off to get our carts. I started the tour for Bob & Greg with a trip to the AMA museum. Then it was back to camp and some flying!

I dugout my heli and support equipment, radio, starter, fuel, etc. First flight was on my Protos 500, I wanted to “test the water” so to say…basically a warm up flight. Bob kept telling me not to wreak “his” favorite heli…Bob loves my Protos...

Well...IRCHA is over!

This year was great, the weather was fantastic! Well, except for the rain on Thursday afternoon and through the night. The flying there was really cool, and the night fly was the best yet. During the week, I was able to test fly a Whiplash electric! That experience was unbelievable, now I want one of those as well...LoL!

I brought two friends for their first time at IRCHA...needless to say, both were overwhelmed. There was so much to do that Bob...

9 Days and counting! IRCHA!

Saturday I managed to get out to our practice flying site. I brought 4 heli’s to fly, but only flew my Protos 500. In keeping a flight log…I “was” 3 flights away from breaking 100 accident / crash free flights. So I put in 4 flights, making the total 101 flights.

I was helping Bob get some flights in as well. And during this time we were there, we watch the slow start of a super nasty storm move in. It wasn’t long after my 4th flight that...

Just a quick update…

I pulled the fuel tank out of my Compass 3D+ and cleaned all the Zap-A-Dap-A-Goo off. It doesn’t stick too well on these tanks. The leaking fuel “was” coming from the vent hole. On the top of the tank is a molded port that a pressure fitting threads into, it cracked along the seam. It wouldn’t be all that bad, however, besides the fuel slashing all over my heli, creating a nice mess to clean up…I lose muffler pressure, enough to have me constantly adjusting the...
