So here we are in November…already!!!

It’s hard to believe its November and now the colder weather is setting in. In a few more weeks…we could start having snow until spring time next year. That’s a sad statement… In the meantime, Mark and I are still flying!

The last several times out flying, Mark and I been having issues with our heli’s, breaking issues! I finally solved the vibration issues with my Rave! I started tuning the Vortex controller (the VX1n) only to...

Just about half way through October!


Mark and I headed to our practice field. We didn't do much flying due to the cold, wind, and clouds. 52 degrees with 15-20 mph winds, and overcast as if it was going to rain.

We both worked on our heli's Saturday. Mark was installing the electronics into his Goblin while waiting for the conversion to arrive. Me, I replaced some worn out parts on my Rave and pulled out the AR7200BX and installed the Spartan Vortex VX1n. yep,...

The beginning of a great weekend?…Saturday…and the end of September!

Mark and I met for breakfast at 9:00 am. We discussed the week we had (long, tiring, and boring), and then switched to the topic of heli's! We arrived at our practice field and no one was in sight, just us once again. The weather was fantastic! Blue skies, 68 degrees and climbing (it stopped at 82 degrees), with very light winds…zero to 5 mph.

I went up first, I wanted to see if I solved my tail...

Here we are mid point of September!

Last weekend, Mark and I had our practice field all to ourselves for both days (no Bob, Bill, John, or Chuck to distract us). Mark made the comment of not wanting to use the buddy-box…ok with me! It’s time for him to grow some wings and fly. We had a few miss-haps, but nothing serious. Mark had a roll over on take-off, the swashplate on my Rave started to separate, and the tail control rod snapped.

Mark and I made it out this Sunday....

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...
