The end of this month is close in hand, and once again April 1st is on a Sunday! I love to prank the pastors at church on April Fools' Day!

Now that my 6HV is flying, I've been trying to find some Gen Ace packs, but everyone is out! So while reading a thread about electric heli's, the topic of Gravity packs came to light and comparison to the Gen Ace packs was made. It also said the Gravity packs might have been made in the same factory as the Gen Ace batteries. So I ordered a set...

Sunday was a blast! Headed out after church to meet up with Bob and Greg. Weather was a bit cooler, but less windy!

Tested out the 6HV after some minor adjustments. Now it's flying better, but the head speed isn't exactly where it should be. The packs I'm using are getting old...I think, need some new ones! So I set the 6HV aside and flew my Protos 500 some, about 4 flights worth! That little heli is supper fun for a 500 size heli.

Then it was time (in between flights...

A lot has happened since my last post. So, first up is my new Compass 6HV...

I did a driveway hover test to make sure the motor was spinning in the right direction...it wasn't. No biggie, swapped to motor wires and everything is fine. I did a two minute hover at normal throttle and everything seemed ok, then tried idle up 1 & 2. Once there is proper head speed, this heli comes to life! The tail seemed a bit sensitive, so I adjusted the gain down. However, I didn't have enough...

Its hard to believe this Thursday marks the half way through March! Talking about time flying by! Yea...well the weather is getting better out. The weatherman said we will be in the mid 70's by Wednesday. A bit too fast, but I'll take it.

I received the ball link sizing tool in the mail. Popped it into the link and a couple of turns, now the link fits the ball better and doesn't have that much drag. After fixing the warped canopy, I installed it on the heli and it looked funny. So...

Here it is! The last day of February…

Progress on my 6HV is a bit slow. Ironed out a location for the remote receiver (satellite), power requirements (wanted to fill the remaining plugs on the AR7200BX), addressed the tail linkage and tight ball links, and the rest of the main programming in the Beast X.

I decided to mount the remote receiver under the battery tray at the very front. Then I routed the wire along the outside of the frame, thinking of routing it on the...
