Smart plan! I should do that too. Too many platforms + systems + bells/whistles + dials/and switches = confusion/panic. Ive been there a time or 2...

Got off work, came home and grabbed the MSH for her maiden and headed over to the soccer fields.

The Penguin motor really does the trick! Now she leaps out of my hand.

My God, is this thing ever sensitive to controls! Managed to get her leveled out and under control, about 400 feet out, 150 feet up. Decide to turn right, she rolls over, won't correct. I kill throttle and watch her pile in nose first about 25 mph.

Well, f**k me!

Retrieving her, I'm amazed at what little damage is done.
A broken clevis, pod crushed but not as bad as I would have thought thanks to the laminate. Battery is still in the pod, but loose. Not because the velcro gave, but because it pulled itself out of the clear shrink wrap they wrap the battery in.

This pretty much confirms it, my uhf receiver is bad. This is the same receiver I had in the Penguin, and she augers in just the same.

Just got done with the repairs. A heat gun took out most of the crush in the pod. 5 minute epoxy did the rest. Just need a clevis and a receiver now.

Don't know if this bird will make the trip, or not. She bent my 3s 5300mah GensAce battery. Think it will be ok. Makes me leerie. I had an 850mah 3s just like this. Lasted a year, then one day I plug her in and watched her burn.
Don't want to spend the money on more battery's right now. Plus, GensAce is out. Just bought me an instant tent to replace my old bastard. My right hand is so bad right now I don't want the hassle of erecting that old thing.

Anyway, beer thirty right now. Think I'll mosey over to the local watering hole.

Didn't want to do it,,, you know how it goes.
I've spent too much money lately. But, damn man, the meet is next week!
Yep, ordered up another receiver.
ImmerisonRC now has a repair facility in the USA, so I'll send the old one out. It's under a year old, ( I think ).

My turn.

For no other reason than I haven't for a while.



Cheers

Cheers Denis. Looks like at least one good week coming up. I hope you can find the time to get a good few packs in.

I've treated myself to a new canopy on the 550. It was looking a little tired, but worse it had come apart on one of my many repairs. Might repair it again and keep as a spare, but right now it's looking very sorry for itself. The new one is much easier for me to see thankfully.

That was the old one in the video, the new one seems to just stand out better.

Packs are charging as we speak, and I have the next two weeks off work. So I'm hoping to get a lot of practice in.

Oh, I also bought 4 new Optipower packs. 50C, 5300mAh, best part of 500, . Nitro's looking pretty good eh now pal.

One of my current 5000 packs is dying, and if previous experience is anything to go by, then when one goes, the others are sure to follow, and in rather short order.

I gambled on the bigger size, as I thought I could then be easier on them, and I have a slight tail heavy situation with the 550. Hopefully I can find a nice position for them that gets my CoG spot on. Not that it matters that much, as you could see, it piroed okay anyway, but right's right I suppose.

We shall see. Thought they'd be here today, but no sign yet.

Cheers

Sutty

Hi guys.
I have only gotten in the occasional flight lately but thought i'd check in with this video that Ragge1 filmed with his phone without me knowing. LOL.
We had a good day at the field and both our sons came along and played with their RC cars. So here goes. Me having some fun with my MSH Protos 500

Nice one Tomas. Some good big air stuff going on there. I didn't know what to expect since I couldn't recall the last time you posted in the progess report, if ever with a heli. I remember the quad video at your fishing spot, but I remembered that for different reasons. I was imagining what it would be like to be standing there, thigh deep, letting a sinking tip come around, with a tripple leader, just after dark, and the excitement of that thud, and then bang as you strike home on a solid 5lb sea trout, or similar. Sends shivers of excitement down my spine just thinking about it.

You were so busy last time we spoke it sounded like helis were going to be on a back burner for the foreseeable future. Glad to see you out there doing your thing.

I've seen that flight spot a few times though, but maybe that was from Ragge1's videos.

Did you follow through with the quad, or was that just a short experiment, just to see if it could be done, which you've now proved. I haven't run my quad yet this year. I just can't seem to summon up the enthusiasm. It's somehow like quad time would be wasted heli time.

You are correct, Andrew. I haven't posted any heli flights before. Never did bother to create a hatcam or similar to get it on film. Besides, as you say I haven't been flying much lately at all. This time was different as Roger filmed it without me knowing.

But I do enjoy my helis, though. And I plan to spend more time on them. What you can't see in the video is that I botched the landing. There is a small pallet laying around at our field and Roger commented that it was quite hard to use it as a landing pad. Guess who just had to try ? I did manage to land on it but the tail hit the edge of the pallet. Breaking the boom, tailcase, tail bellcrank, tailgrip and tailbelt. Had most but not all parts in spare so the Protos is grounded for a little while until Fastlads sends of the rest. I am quite impressed by how cheap the Protos is to keep in the air. The total sum of all the needed parts for this repair is only 25 at Fastlad.

With the Protos down I'll take the opportunity to work on my Gaui X5 instead. I never got around to complete the build but is making up for that wrong as we speak. I got all needed parts right here so hope to give you guys a maiden report in the foreseeable future.

The quad does not tickle my fancy. I still have it laying around and probably will do some more work on it and take it for a spin. But helis must come first

That rescuemode looks both scary and efficient.Quite impressive indeed.
That button might just save you from an expensive repairbill some day.
