Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! So here we are in December already! It won't be long now, Christmas is only 21 days away!

Whiplash Electric: On hold…Instead, I used the main gear for Bob’s gasser as he hasn’t ordered a gear for it yet, (other priorities got in the way). I also found the bolt going through the gear hub was sheared off? I gave him my gear set in order for the three of us [Mark, Bob, & myself] could enjoy some flying this last weekend.

increase gap between motor pinion and Main. Set much more than paper test.
Shorten Torque Tube by 1mm ( Need to cut to go shorter).
lube head with vaseline.
pack gap at front of motor mount.
vibe: 0.4 first hover
0.2 second hover.

see up-down motor vibe . this may be play in motor mount. need to bolt down front of mount.

front of motor mount now screwed down. vibe=0.2 on ground (vibe analysis shows motor up-down vibe more than halved) slight...

Thanksgiving is only 11 days away! Gobble! Gobble!


Whiplash Electric: I ordered the gears that stripped, but haven’t done anything to it. I need to send the CC ESC in for repairs.

Compass 3D+: This is still on the waiting list...back burner.

Rave: I ordered all the parts needed to put this heli back together...however, I need to buy a new muffler. In the crash, the header was bent fairly well. It needs to be replaced. Work more overtime...yuck!...

Well here we are in November…Thanksgiving is only 22 days away! Gobble! Gobble!

I went to the flying field without the guys this time as I wanted to get some personal flying time in. 1) test out 4 heli’s, 2) get 10-12 flights in, and 3) work on some new and old maneuvers…sorry guys. So, first up…

Whiplash Electric: I managed to get two flights out of it before I totally destroyed all the gears on it. I tried all the motor mode settings trying to get rid of the motor...
