Our first full day of flying…FINALLY!

Saturday was a great day for flying here in the Midwest! Sunny skies, light breeze (that turned nasty for a short while), and warm! 78 degrees!!!

This Whippy is one smooth...

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...
