4 more days, and then this month is over! Two more to go, and then spring will be here...

A few weekends ago, Mark’s O.S.91 HZ stopped running in flight. There were some issues going on with this motor we didn’t know. It possibly started with the main bearing. As a result of this, Mark replaced the 91 with the O.S.105…non-pumped. This last Sunday, we started the break-in process. The first flight proved this new motor has way more power rich versus the 91 running at its best. ...

My Heli updates…

I replaced the Savox 2275 HV (I believe) servo in my Rave with an MKS BL980 servo…much better! I fixed the blown gasket on my Goblin (Gobby 1) gasser and reprogrammed the second Goblin (Gobby 2). Plus, I worked on all three of my micro electrics for a possible indoor flight session with Mark…after church.

Well, as it turned out Mark was visiting family Sunday and the weather was decent enough to venture outside. I grabbed my Rave and both Goblin gassers...

Well here we are…a new year…January! Happy New Year everyone!

We've been blessed so far, no snow, unlike this time last year 2'+. During my two weeks of from work, Christmas/New Year shut down, I took advantage of the better weather, after Christmas, to get some flights in. Mark was out of town visiting family. I managed 5 flights on my Rave and 5 on my Goblin gasser. The weather was almost spring like, calm winds and temps close to 50 degrees. However, as the sun pasted the half...

Merry Christmas everyone! December is almost over…another year gone by!

Wow! Can you believe this? 2 days left for 2014… A lot has happened this year and it's not over just yet! I've been trying to log as many flights as I can, but have failed (once again) to even beat last years total. My average is 375 flights, mostly in the summer and fall, but this year its 288 flights, including all my electric helis.

Mark and I ventured out a few weekends ago to do some...

Can you believe this?…its December already!!!

The last time Mark and I made it out flying was 3 weeks ago, boy how time flies! No sooner did we get a flight in each, visitors showed up and was looking for a show. Mark told me to put up my Rave and let it rip! Ok! Well, I shouldn’t have done that. In the middle of the flight/demo, I was asked how high will it go…so up I went! I made my Rave climb so high, all I could see was the smoke tail, and they enjoyed that! At the end of the...
