Taht's true, every time I crank mine up at the local plank field everything stops and I have the field pretty much to myself! Don't fly there much but it's close to where I work so I sneek over to burn a little Kero once in a while. Craig B

Joe Howard got my order today for the XLV with the three blade main and tail. I'll fly it with the 29 cc for now but I will order the conversion soon as well along with the SPH5. :mrgreen: :glasses2:

Yeah, Big Boy Club...

Hi DKTek

From previous experience Joe has told me that he is not allowed to deliver into the Australian market as we already have a local Vario dealer. You may need to check on this. I hope Joe can deliver into Aus as I now a couple of guys after scale bodies

Cheers

After rereading my last post, I need to clarify something. Although I ordered the three blade set up, I'll fly the VR22 head with the 29cc. The turbine head (703/40)may be a little much for the gasser. I'll get used to flying the stock XLV first, then do it up with the three blade stuff when I get the SPH5 and conversion. Call it High Dollar baby steps... :mrgreen:

CJ, I personally agree with you 100%. BUT, I doubt the AMA will see it this way. I'm going for the conversion knowing the situation and the fact that I can't fly it at an AMA field but I have plenty of places to fly it comfortably and safely. I have a few pilot buddies with private fields and ultralite strips. Most are R/C freaks and are just as excited about the XLV as I am.

My impression is the AMA ruling is out of date, based on what was needed before the arrival of the two stage turbine with completely remote kero start. They must have thought is was normal to stand within the rotor disc area when starting up, what with having to hold the head and disconnect the propane connection etc. Of course that was a safety issue then, but times change, pilots should be allowed to think for themselves. Funny how the AMA say the rotors must be stationary whilst the turbine is idling, although this does not apply to electric helis :? , but then it`s ok to have fuel tanks that you can`t see how much fuel is left :? work that one out.

Agreed CJ. Would probably need a bigger voice than us to change the rule. Besides, you guys (UK) don't have to deal with this sort of stuff, do you?

I think our AMA equilevent, the BMFA has a silly rule about not allowing the use of metal main blades at any of their events. Good thing though the BMFA don't run many helicopter events .
Mind you we have lots of other problems over here, speed cameras, speed ramps in the road, not allowed to drive if using a mobile phone, not allowed guns or even a pen knife, etc. etc. and it's raining.
Our Country has turned down the slipery sloap towards a nanny state. I think you guys must have it better over there

p.s. I thought about mentioning the war...
