My Synergy N7 build…the final touches and…the maiden flight!...and the NIU students experimental aircraft...

So on with last nights' build/finish... I started with powering up the Spartan Vortex to run through its' programming and discovered the second satellite wasn't working? For some reason, it wasn't bound, that or I have an issue with the cable going to it. So I started off with binding both satellites, and after several tries, It was finally bound.

At this point,...

Now past the mid point of February! Come on spring!!!

Ok, I was able to spend some time working on servo alignment to the swash balls last night. I finally have all 3 cyclic servos setup much better; however, I had to use a fairly thick spacer for the two side servos to achieve this, and had to space out the elevator servo, but not too much. I wound up flipping the screws that hold the carbon fiber arm so the nuts are next to the servo body…more clearance. The screw heads were too...

A New heli build coming soon!

I ordered the Synergy N7 after reviewing many other brands available. I was looking for a 700 class nitro heli to replace my Team Heliproz Nitro Whiplash and complement my Rave 90 ENV.

The first look was at the Raptor G4 nitro. However, it fell off the list as rumor (all the forums talking about) said the nitro helis were being discontinued. Although, no official mention from the manufacturer stated such facts…at this time.

4 more days, and then this month is over! Two more to go, and then spring will be here...

A few weekends ago, Mark’s O.S.91 HZ stopped running in flight. There were some issues going on with this motor we didn’t know. It possibly started with the main bearing. As a result of this, Mark replaced the 91 with the O.S.105…non-pumped. This last Sunday, we started the break-in process. The first flight proved this new motor has way more power rich versus the 91 running at its best. ...
