Heli-Log 5:9:2014

Sunday, The first May weekend

I met Mark at our practice area after church. The day started out overcast with the threat of rain, but it never happened. The sky managed to clear up mostly, just after 1:30 PM. My heart wasn't into flying...but I stayed to help out Mark. I told him what was bugging me and he proceeded to get me in the air anyways. We placed a call to Bob and ask if he was coming out, he said he was on his way. Just as Mark and I were getting ready to start our heli's,...

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...

Heli Log 4:30:2014

Posted 04-30-2014 at 04:00 PM by rcnut

The last day of April!

I took a while for the weather to clear up and provide some nice days of flying. I mounted the Jewel generator system with 2 super bright LEDís and a volt meter. Now was the time to see if this system would charge my LiPoÖa Relion 5200mAh square pack that needed charging. I met the guys (Bob and Mark) at Mr. Cís for breakfast and we talked about what we wanted to accomplish for the day. We arrived at our practice field only to find park flying plankers...

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.
