Itís been a while since my last post and Thanksgiving is 5 days away!...gobble, gobbleÖ Bob and I have made it out a couple of times only to fly into darkness. The days are just not long enough to get a few flights in after work.

I started a new job 3 weeks ago this Monday and Iíve worked both weekends, which leaves very little time to fly. However, I have Thursday and Friday off (and possibly the weekend) so I hope to put in some serious flying!:smile

In the meantime, my last flight on my Compass 3D+ decided to exhibit clutch problemsÖagain! Boy Iím getting tired of this!!! Just need to find some time to remove the motor and see whatís going on. Also developed a slow tail wag!?? I tried to increase the tail gain, but no matter what I did increase/decrease it is still there. I was told it could be the motor mount dampers. Curtis Youngblood had this issue and attributed the resolve to the motor mount. Iíll give it a tryÖ

My Rave, 6HV, and Protos 500 are flying fine. Now I need to replace the LiPoís for my Protos. The time per flight is getting shorter, from 5:30 minutes to 3 minutes. So next year Iíll be looking for some new packs. Maybe Iíll buy some new packs for my 6HV and transfer the old 6HV packs over to my Protos.
