Well...IRCHA is over!

This year was great, the weather was fantastic! Well, except for the rain on Thursday afternoon and through the night. The flying there was really cool, and the night fly was the best yet. During the week, I was able to test fly a Whiplash electric! That experience was unbelievable, now I want one of those as well...LoL!

I brought two friends for their first time at IRCHA...needless to say, both were overwhelmed. There was so much to do that Bob...

The new flybarless module finally arrived yesterday - a new MSH Brain. I spent the last few hours setting it up, and it looks pretty promising so far.

Also, I have the new flybarless heads installed. Below is a picture of how the tandem looks with one of the 450DFC heads installed.

The initial flight was scary due to major pitch oscillations, which were expected. After fiddling...

9 Days and counting! IRCHA!

Saturday I managed to get out to our practice flying site. I brought 4 heli’s to fly, but only flew my Protos 500. In keeping a flight log…I “was” 3 flights away from breaking 100 accident / crash free flights. So I put in 4 flights, making the total 101 flights.

I was helping Bob get some flights in as well. And during this time we were there, we watch the slow start of a super nasty storm move in. It wasn’t long after my 4th flight that...

Just a quick update…

I pulled the fuel tank out of my Compass 3D+ and cleaned all the Zap-A-Dap-A-Goo off. It doesn’t stick too well on these tanks. The leaking fuel “was” coming from the vent hole.
