Here we are…the beginning of September! Fall time…

Goodbye summer! Sad to see you go so soon! However, the cooler weather, Fall, will make our gas motors produce more power. They really like the cooler to colder weather!

It’s been a few weeks since IRCHA…like 3 weeks now, and Mark and I finally made it back to the flying field. Work has gotten in the way (10 hour days, 7 days a week). So this Labor Day weekend was a nice break. Saturday was a mix of rain and sunny...

Manage first Inverted 30second hover, using all axis control.

kind of helps if I talk to myself ...stick up nose up etc

Use bailout 3 times in one flight. this is really helping thanks to Skookum.

Hover set at 2500 and different lower pitch curve,. so smooth.

2500= vibe=0.2

2800= 0.4

Metal double joint lever with new bearings fitted to tail with metal control arm.
Test fly: perfect hover with no twitch . Only hover and about 10 flips over grass.
2nd test fly : all ok

Gusty
Tail kicks a bit ...3degrees in windy gusts : gain is at 50

Skid bumpers seem to cause a resonance so removed them.

Flights perfect otherwise.

tail is perfect when no wind.

tighten up all tail linkages (still smooth but a little stiff) and tail kicks go away (in wind)
