The fridge will take a while to cool, yes.
But my amp-meter says it is not pulling any power at all.
The A/C we gave 20 minutes and nothing.
The compressor tries to start and shuts off, this generally means low on charge. The only possible reason to be low on charge is a leak.
Of course being on a dealers lot I can not just climb up on the roof to start troubleshooting anything.

Just got back home. The IRCHA Jamboree was huge this year with 501 registered pilots.

Got to meet Will and pick up my new Raptor from him.

Meet Debian Dog.

Crashed my new Raptor when the tail hub failed
Not to much damage, saved the V-blades.

Ended up with my canopy right next to none other than Curtis Youngblood on the flight line. Got to meet him and his wife and two kids.

Saw some REALLY good flying. :mrgreen:

Saw some even better crashes :twisted:

All together a great week.

Huge thanks to Ron Kummer and all the other people that make the jamboree possible.

Todd

Great meeting you to Todd. That tail hub had been on that Raptor for over a year, guess it was time to go????? Sorry for your trouble with it.

NP Will, things like that happen. I always say if you are going to fly helicopters, you are going to crash helicopters. It is just that simple. She is all back toghther now. You would never know that it went in

A blast only starts to describe it.

I learned so many new things, and met so many new people, that I will not remember half of it.
I guess that means I'll have to go back next year.

SWARM went thru over 80 lbs of wings and 300 rum balls on Friday night.

Next year could be scary.

The Rumballs were great as was the incredible hospitality of the SWARM club. I ate a bunch of wings, and I can tell you that they do burn twice.

It was GREAT seeing all the people I only see once a year at the event. People who fly helis are what makes this hobby great!

Glad you got the Rappie flying Todd. Luckily it came with some spare parts. Glad the tail blade did not hit you.

Thanks Will, We had fun hosting the event.

Those wings did not burn.
That was the mild sauce.
They wouldn't let me bring out the good stuff. :twisted:

Swarm is trying to figure out how to top what we had this year. But you know we will. :glasses2:

You must have left real early with blinders on.

Ask Chris B. about it, he was there

We went thru over 80 lbs of wings and over 300 rum-balls and still got in some night flying. YEeee Haaaaa....

These were not your mothers rum-balls
