The last few days of IRCHA…Friday…

Morning temps were cool…65 degrees with a light breeze.

I arrived at the Jamboree early this time, as Mark had overslept…again! I started off finalizing my shopping list. I checked out the FPV glasses and the new Accu simulator…not bad actually, but nothing for Mac at this time. I made my way back to our site and helped my buddy Ray programing his radio. Mark arrived and put up a couple of flights while I was working with Ray, he...

Live From IRCHA!

Day 3

Morning temps were cool…65 degrees with a light breeze.

Mark and his family showed up at 9:00 am. We ran around Wednesday registering, getting our golf carts, checking out the museum, setting up his tent, and then my buddy Ray pulled in! By the time we found him, he was settling in nicely!

Mark and I decided to walk vender row for some shopping fun! I bought another Goblin 700 for a gasser conversion and some badly...

Live from IRCHA…Yea Baby!

Day 1

I made it to IRCHA! A little later than I had planned. I saw a semi roll-over on 65 in the North bound lane, and construction was everywhere throughout. Plus there is that one hour time change…for me.

As I was pulling, I had to take a bunch of pic's for Mark…teasing him! Mark was at work and I thought I would help him out…helping him keeping his mind on work…not IRCHA! LoL! However, he loved them and asked me to keep sending...

5 more days to IRCHA!...well, for me that is!

Our Heli Fun Fly

The 19th & 20th was our rescheduled “Heli’s over Rockford” fun fly. The turnout was ok…8 pilots including myself. We had a great time with only two mishaps on Saturday. The weather was beautiful, 82 degrees 0-5 mph on Saturday and 5-10 on Sunday, with mostly clear skies.

There was a few Goblin heli’s in attendance, but mine was the only gasser and it was the talk whenever I went up. They...

Well this month is just about half over! And IRCHA is 23 days away! (22 for me!)

Went out flying with the guys yesterday (Sunday) after a long 10 hours at work! Brought my Goblin and Team Heliproz Whiplash (the Team Heliproz Whiplash never made it out of the truck. ). I wanted to see if placing rubber washers under the metal washers would fix the slight fuel leak I was having.

It did in fact! I put in 3 wonderful flights with no leaking. Even though it was warm,...
