A couple of flights a week recently.

Couple of more days...and this month will be half over! Not to mention, IRCHA is right around the corner!!!

My Goblin Gasser build continued...

10. Programming the cyclic servos! I've done this many times and this time I programmed the servos and Beast X receiver on my workbench versus on the heli...weird! But it worked and the servos are centered. So now the swashplate is nicely centered, then I installed the rotor head and connected the washout arms...hmm, those arms...
