Here we areÖthe last day of the year! 12/31/2012

Happy New Year!!!

Once the boom assembly was built, itís on to the body! The main section of the heli is large in comparison to my Rave or Trex 700. The servo / clutch stack makes up the main center support of the body. What Iíve noticed most, so far into this build, is the precision of the holes drilled for the hex bolts, they are an exact fit!

There's a new addition to my heli fleet...

My Whiplash Gasser has finally arrived!!! It took big brown some time to deliver it...compaired to their normal delivery times, but considering the time of year (Christmas) they're very busy. It was well worth the wait!

Well another Thanksgiving is here and gone. Now Christmas is just around the corner, not ready for that...just yet.

Anyhow, Bob and Bill came over Friday for some heli wrenching. Bob's Blade 450 Pro needed some swashplate readjustments. I decreased the length of the swash linkages just under 1/4". The swash was hitting the alignment pins on the head when cyclic was applied...not good. And +9 degrees was all I could get out of collective pitch before interfering with the alignment...
