I'll never understand why Loctite put blue thread locker in a red container.

I'm flying today after a new Vbar control and new vbar, the weather is perfect today.

LOL, it counts only if it allows you to see your helis better...
Or lets you drive to fly the helis ...
Or lets you drive to buy helis ...
Or lets you drive to a friends to talk about helis ...

Oh hell, did you at least think about helis while you were doing it?

Default Getting after the clutter!

Resurrecting helis from the dead pile. Have successfully brought back to life a K110, K123, BL150S and BL180CFX this past week and built an Arduino based 4-in-1 BLheli flash adapter. Today, flashed the stock ESC on one of the K123s with BLHeli 14.9. Flys great! Currently flying 12 (indoor) packs through the mCX2, K110 and K123.

Good thread idea!

I'm mounting my spy door bell camera on a stick because the neighbor kid is skimming my Wi Fi - thinks he runn's the Universe.

Mounting it on the fence pointed directly at his door - he only speaks Jibber Jaber.
After he runs out and hops around all excited looking for it - I'm moving it again !
When he run's back in to double check what he see's.

Point it directly at his other door this time ! He will learn.

Then going to take my flying comfort weasel out for a Lil Hover - That will really confuse him.

Tomorrows plan is to attach bell's under a few of the bird feeders cause some thing is eating all the sun flower seeds and it ain't the squirrels - They can't pronounce it.

I've not started it yet, but a 78" Extreme Flight Extra 300 is next on the bench.

It's nice that you and he have some common ground.

Been modifying the crap out of a Blade 180CFX to fit into a Gaui 200 size 500D fuselage I got for cheap.
Had to raise the tailboom 10MM to get it to sit where I needed it to be.
Extended the tailboom using K&S 7MM tube, and fabricated a longer torque drive shaft.

Currently making a lower chassis plate to clear a Lynx Eox 1911 motor,( a little to large to fit between the frame sides.)
May even attempt to make a five blade head for it.



God knows if this thing will fly, it is getting a little piggy, but I am staying with it until I find out.


Pics to follow.

Not entirely heli related, but as per Rick's rules, I am posting here on helifreak, so, kinda doing heli related stuff right?
Going to make some chips, not sure what I'm going to do yet and I'm still teaching myself, so Fusion 360 open and hopefully a light bulb turns on above my head.

I’m waiting for some spacers for mounting servos to my Gaui X5.

In the meantime I checked my Oxy 2 over to see why it started so hard last time I flew it. Quick check that the motor wires were all there, pulled the blades off, spun up just fine, put blades back on. Scratch head...

Checked my order tracking.
