A very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year !!

Yesterday I got in two flights before all the family festivities started! I started off with the Protos 500. It felt great to fly it in an open area, compared to the much smaller lot by my house. Then it was time to try the Compass 3D+. The new clutch works fine. However, the Compass felt very slow (and the motor is very rich right now). I attribute most of this to flying the Protos a lot, still...it moves slower. I'm starting to notice...

Managed to put in one flight yesterday after work...before the sun went down (I needed that fix!).

Our club meeting was Dec.7, and the voting for new board member was indeed interesting. 5 new members and 2 re-elected. However, right after the results and congratulations, our re-elected treasurer decided to step down. For reason I won't go into here. Then a day later our secretary also stepped down. So now we have to pick two people to fill the positions. We held a board...

Managed to get in one flight yesterday after work. Coronal called as I was sitting at the light at work. He asked if I wanted to go out to the flying field and get some flying in. Ah...yea! But by the time I get home, grab my heli (Protos 500) and make it to the field, it will almost be dark out. He said ok, maybe some other day.

Well, I went home and grabbed my heli any ways. Put in one flight as it was getting dark. Need to get the night flying gear on!

I haven't...

Put in two flights on my Protos after work yesterday. Could have done one more, but decided to call it quits due to an almost goof. I'm flying in a much smaller field, big enough for 450's, but a bit small for the Protos. There are several trees outlining the area, so maneuvers need to be in close...and I almost flew into myself.

I had talked about teaching a new pilot (co-worker/friend) in the other blog. Greg has bought my Trex 600N to learn on. We installed all Savox servos, Solid-G...

Hi everyone, this is the start of my heli blog here on Helifreak. I started flying heliís in the spring of 1984. GMPís Cricket was my first heli. At the time, I didnít have or know about gyros. It wasnít until I bought a Schluter Heliboy that I tried Futabaís 2 stage gyro. It had two setting to select from. From there my flying skills took off, but not too far. I didnít have anyone outside of Illinois, at that time, to talk to, see fly, or even known fun flyís existed.

It was a few...
