Good Time at Cincy Fun Fly

Posted 05-11-2009 at 02:06 PM by skigolfmike

A bunch of us from Dayton went down to the Cincy fun fly at Joyce park in Hamilton this weekend. It was the usual suspects with myself, James, Justin, Scotty, Chago and a couple more that I don't remember their names. Bill (billbill242000) also stop by, but he didn't bring a heli.

The weather was interesting, with 25 mph winds gusting to 40, making flying challenging. Unbelievably, there were only 2 minor crashes that I witnessed. One was a tail strike on a 600 that took out the...

Nitro Engine Woes

Posted 05-08-2009 at 12:10 PM by skigolfmike

Well, it took some doing, but I managed to screw up 2 perfectly good working helis. It wasn't enough that my T600 and T700 were working great, I had to try and make them better. It's mice when changes go seamlessly; however, in this case that was not about to happen.

Just to set the stage, I have a YS50ST in the 600 and a YS91SR in the 700. I had an OS bubbleless clunk in the 600 on Hayes clunk line and the stock clunk, in the center hole on Hayes line on the 700. After Huntsville,...

Long Time - No Posts

It's been 4 months since my last blog entry. Time flies when you're having fun I guess. I have been flying and working on helis though. I got the TRex 700 going and I've been tweaking on that and the T600 too. The Furion is flying great too.

I managed to make it to Huntsville for the funfly in April. Pitted next to the CY guys and got to see a lot of their flying. Spent a fair amount of time talking to Curtis, Brian, Nick, Jamie and Jamie's dad. Good people. Nick and Jamie...

Holidays, Helis and Happiness

Posted 12-30-2008 at 02:07 PM by skigolfmike

Hopefully everyone has had or is having a great holiday season and you and yours are doing well. It's always busy at our household. Many family get-togethers, lots of food, presents for the kids. Good stuff.

My kids are 26, 16 and 14, so it gets interesting. Yes, the teens present a bit of a challenge. Fortunately, they got a lot of cool things, like new phones and unlimited texting. The oldest one is engaged, so that adds her fiance to the mix too. I remember what they are...

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,...
