SK-720 Black fitted.
New Align Blades fitted
SK mounted on Skookum black tape: Vibe warning - vibe score during flight=8 - lots of spikes at tail and motor and general freq.
Tightem tail grip bolts to hub.
Fit Tail drive shaft better as too much longitudinal play.
Tighten main gear to shaft as some up-down play.
ground test - no blades: vibe 2.0
ground run with mains : vibe=6.0
flights give random vibe warnings. Vibe log shows low values however...

RC Freak Episode 67: 2/3 More than Before

Posted 04-20-2014 at 03:00 PM by Dicey

Hello all,

I know it has been awhile since the last show, but this is a good one. I've got new co-hosts Gus and Richard with me to talk about their flying experience. And then, we talk about torque tubes vs. belts. Remember to follow us on twitter: @rcfreakpodcast and to e-mail me

Let us know what you think and talk to you in two weeks!

And it is still on iTunes, though the old show downloads probably don't work.

My Trex700G maiden!

Mark was busy fly his Whiplash gasser, Bob was chatting with Bill, John, and Steve. So I arriving last, no one was in a hurry to bother me just yet, so I pulled out my Trex700G and proceeded to fill the tank full of gas. I pumped the bulb until there was a solid stream of full returning back to the tank. One final look at everything, including...
