Heli-Log 10:13:2014

Posted 10-13-2014 at 09:31 AM by rcnut

Just about half way through October!


Mark and I headed to our practice field. We didn't do much flying due to the cold, wind, and clouds. 52 degrees with 15-20 mph winds, and overcast as if it was going to rain.

We both worked on our heli's Saturday. Mark was installing the electronics into his Goblin while waiting for the conversion to arrive. Me, I replaced some worn out parts on my Rave and pulled out the AR7200BX and installed the Spartan Vortex VX1n. yep,...

The beginning of a great weekend?…Saturday…and the end of September!

Mark and I met for breakfast at 9:00 am. We discussed the week we had (long, tiring, and boring), and then switched to the topic of heli's! We arrived at our practice field and no one was in sight, just us once again. The weather was fantastic! Blue skies, 68 degrees and climbing (it stopped at 82 degrees), with very light winds…zero to 5 mph.

I went up first, I wanted to see if I solved my tail...

Here we are mid point of September!

Last weekend, Mark and I had our practice field all to ourselves for both days (no Bob, Bill, John, or Chuck to distract us). Mark made the comment of not wanting to use the buddy-boxÖok with me! Itís time for him to grow some wings and fly. We had a few miss-haps, but nothing serious. Mark had a roll over on take-off, the swashplate on my Rave started to separate, and the tail control rod snapped.

Mark and I made it out this Sunday....

90second inverted hover.

Fit new head dampers. flight is good. little bit of skid vibe at certain parts of flight.

Up gov gain from 26 to 29. not yet tested.
