Heli-Log 6:11:2012

Posted 06-11-2012 at 09:05 AM by rcnut

Bob and I decided to head out early Saturday morning, due to the higher temps forecasted for the day. I took the Trex 700, the Compass 6HV, and Protos 500. First flight was on the Protos 500 while the electric starter batteries were on the charger. I helped Bob with a couple of his flights, and then broke out the Trex 700. First flight, it was running great. Having the needles set to 1-7/8 out. By the time I got to the bottom of the tank (~7 minutes), the motor started to run lean. Landed fast and...

Heli-Log 6:8:2012

Well I started working on the Trex 700 motor rebuild last night. It was a mess inside, mostly at the top, between the piston and head. Most of the piston that broke was imbedded in the head. I took my dremel with a cutoff wheel and carefully cleaned the debris off. Inside the crank area was as bad as you would think, but there was enough damage in there as well.

The sleeve needed a little attention, as the ring left some remains on the side walls. A small piece of Scotch Brite pad...

Heli-Log 6:7:2012

Yesterday was a great day to fly, winds around 5 mph! I just had to put some flight time on my Rave, however, disaster struck. The first flight was great, motor running smooth and a bit on the rich side. By the end of the flight, it started to lean out a bit. I checked that idle needle (fuel flow) and it had moved just a little or so it would seem. I turned it out an 1/8th and everything [once again] was fine.

At the end of the second flight, during an auto, the motor died slowly,...
