Went out flying Saturday with another two new heli pilots (that’s 4 total). Jason has a Blade 450 3D, and Dennis has a Trex 450 SA(?), it needs some more fine tuning, but flyable for a trainer.

Jason had his Blade 450 at the hobby shop for repairs earlier in the week (something Jason will never do from this time on!). We got together Friday night and gave it a good going over. I took the opportunity to program my new DX8 radio as a trainer. However, not being familiar with my new...

Last night was our club meeting, which went rather well. In the past, (last year) there was a big fallout within. To sum things up, the club almost dissolved due to an attempted hostile take-over by the big-bird plankers. Our field would rank on the list of best flying fields in the USA. So naturally the airplane guy's would want it for themselves. As it stands now, we have a completely new board, everyone is welcomed to fly (heli's included), and we have and understanding of how things are going...

Here it is May already...next stop...IRCHA!

I went out flying with Coronal and Eric Brandenburg last night. I let Eric have a wack at my new Gravity packs in my 6HV... Watching Eric push my heli close to its limits [or what I perceived as its limits], the Gravity pack held the rpm all the way through the flight (5 minutes worth). I watched my 6HV go through some amazing maneuver at close to 100 mph. Eric was impressed with my heli and how comfortable it felt to him and with the performance...

I managed to get out flying Saturday and last night. The weather here hasn’t been cooperating that well…windy, rainy, and now cooler (low 50’s during the day and mid 30”s at night). What happened to that warmer weather we all had???

Saturday on the 3rd and 4th flight, my Compass 3D+ started having carburetor issue. Come to find out, it is loose…again! So I’ll have to look into modifying it (fixing) so it will never come loose again! Well, come loose when I would like it to,...

Yesterday I picked up two new Gravity 6 cell 3300mAh LiPo packs that were sent to me from Canada… Now I will see how the 6HV fly’s with a fresh pack. I might venture out tonight if the blasted winds calm down some...
Last night I finally managed to get and try the new Gravity packs that I bought! The first several flights were only 3:30 minutes long, the "break-in" period. While I was waiting on the new packs, I flew my Protos 500. I went through 3 packs on the Protos and...
