"The Grass Is Brown Everywhere"

Year's ago I took a job in Texas and when I started work I discovered that I had been "sold" on the job as much as I had been selling myself to the company.

After 2 weeks of discovering how this new job was even worse than my previous one, I returned to the former job (with a big pay increase) and coined the phrase "The Grass Is Brown Everywhere" to explain why I returned.

The acronym TGIBE became my username on many forums and accounts over the years...

500 Build Part III

Posted 04-17-2008 at 10:04 AM by TGibe

My 500 build is taking longer than I expected due to the high number of "honey do" projects I have going on. I remember reading a post by Rick Lohr where he talks about how his was delayed in part because of some house painting. My distractions are similar; Tint the house windows, build a water feature for our back yard, paint the trim on the house, etc.

However, I was able to carve out some time yesterday to assemble the tail, lube the belt, and get organized for the next steps...

Things I learned:

-My boom needed to be shortened by about 2 mm to allow the metal tail assembly to fit in a way that allowed me to adjust the belt.
-The thrust bearings in the tail did not have any grease at all.
-A dremel is a very handy tool when building helis
-The G-force ESD plate is anodized on the outside, but provides conductive areas where they are needed and was easy to install.
