As of 11 December 2008 I will be grounded for a while due to extensive shoulder surgery. I sustained some injuries while I was in Iraq ( 2006-2007 ) and I am finally getting them taken care of. This will be my second surgery this year. I had my left shoulder operated on the end of July 08 and it has healed nicely. I hope the Right one does as well.

Anyway probably wont be flying for a few weeks..

New Heli, More Upgrades & Maintenance

Posted 12-09-2008 at 10:05 AM by skigolfmike

I got my new Trex 700 last week and the resp of the parts have been slowly coming in. I got another great deal from Grand RC for the 700. This time I got 3 Align 620 servos for cyclic and a 620 throttle servo. I also got another AR7100R receiver. The price was very good and I figured I saved about $300. Since I'm planning to get an YS91SR (which will be here soon) through a connection I have, I went ahead and got the Hatori SB-19FH pipe. Also I got a set of Radix 710 'blem' blades. So far,...

So Much Time, So Little to Do (Sorry - Reverse That)

Posted 11-14-2008 at 08:17 AM by skigolfmike

This has been a crazy week. Between rebuilds, waiting for parts, online sim sessions and squeezing in a flight here and there, I've been keeping pretty busy. It's been a learning experience too.

The online Phoenix sim sessions are a blast. I just have to remember to turn the volume down in the head set so I don't start yelling. Boy did I hear about that. The good thing is trying to do some new stuff. If nothing else you get better at unusual attitude recoveries. Plus it's a...
