Another great day to go flying!!!

Went flying Saturday with the guys... Mark and I stopped at Mr.C's restaurant for breakfast, and then on to the field. It was a 10/10 day to fly...light breeze, clear skies and sunny, and just the right temps.

Mark brought his G4 and Whiplash gasser. He put in 2 flights on both, however, on the 2nd flight with his gasser, Mark forgot to fill the tank. His flight lasted about 5 minutes, and right at the time the motor started cutting...

Happy Labor Day Weekend! Let’s go flying!!!

I hope everyone had a great Labor Day weekend! It was a great 4 days off for me, took Friday off. The weather was better than what the weatherman was predicting…RAIN! However, I stayed in Friday through Sunday to update / fix several helis. In the meantime, Bill fell off the radar, medical issues, so no setting up the governor on his Synergy N5c, and Mark was busy with family…so this was a good time to wrench on helis…get er done!...

What a beautiful day to go flying!

Mark and I met up for breakfast Saturday morning. It was a beautiful day to fly…puffy clouds, sunshine, 72 degrees, with a light breeze, and a bit muggy, but on the low side.

Mark was feeling like flying nitro all day and left his gassers at home, and a good thing he did! Mark pulled out his Raptor 800E, converted to nitro, also converted to a 700 size. This heli has the YS 120SRX motor and it is a beast! The first flight was a bit...

The middle of summer fun!

So far our weather, her in the Midwest, is stable...more like what a summer is supposed to be like! Clear skies, light winds, low humidity, and stuck at work! I am definitely getting the heli bug back and can't wait for this weekend to start.

Synergy 556

I finished my Synergy 556 stretched kit Wednesday night. I started the assembly Monday right after IRCHA. It didn't take long to assemble...maybe 12 hours total? The wiring went...

Another great day of flying!

Met a couple of Chicago guys at our field yesterday...due to a NOTAR restriction, air show. This was a treat for Bill and myself, it is nice to meet and fly with other people, well, for Bill it is, I do this all the time. The day wasn't too bad, 82 degrees, light winds, eh, mostly cloudy skies due to threatening thunder storms, and somewhat muggy.

3D Dave brought his Diabolo and Goblin 500, and Jacko(?) brought his Goblin 500 and Synergy...
