Yay! it's a good day, new heli and new fancy charger.

Dual 200 watt
USB port
speakers
Ir capability

after setting up my new 300x it was too late to fly at my field. Test hover in the carport was a success...new carbon blades for this guy and she will remain bone stock.

Talon 35 arrived for my CFX so I can go governor mode

Cheers!

300CFX has a bad bearing on the tail assembly....
450X has a 1 way bearing that is making the clicking sound...
130X RedBull needs new Torque Tubes....


USPS has my parts but won't arrive until Monday no 450x or 130x action this weekend



.......argh! at least I saw the problem with my CFX before I flew again this afternoon...the tail shaft is only supported by one bearing, Im glad I didn't have any incidents this morning. I have to order the bearing or get the new aluminum tail housing while I am at it.

I guess its the Habu and Wildcat out at the field tomorrow

okay that's the last time I am using preset trims from horizon....lol the aileron for my habu was opposite....lol I really hope I don't have to switch tx soon...I should have kept my dx7s...that thing was spot on to my preference


been really stressful at work....I needed to just fly...

almost crashed the BL....gave positive pitch when I was inverted ....whew close call

this was a great solo session!

3 BL batts
2 Habu
4 CFX

I got my new canopy on my 300CFX thanks to Robins Hobby in Glendale...they made new holes for my canopy since the 300x canopy doesn't fit on the CfX.


Crashed and repaired my MCPX Goblin....flies just like new! I am getting more risky with my stunts but the pay offs are worth the inevitable repairs


been able to flip the Gobin BL like nothing but too scared to flip the 450 and 300 lately

So I have been having car problems....I needed something that would cheer me up....so I contacted Adam from HelipartsDirect.com and now I have completed my MCPX BL DFC-Goblin-



she's actually more fun to fly than to admire...the fuse is made of a types reinforced material...not fiberglass

The BL Goblin flies reall well...once I get her out on the flying field I will report on how she does inverted. Sport flying so fur has been really entertaining! c'mon she's a beauty!


Cheers!...Continue Reading

Darn the fellow member I saw flying a 72 Extra yesterday...I put my 13x6.5 prop back on my Vyper for more slow flying...hovering with my Vyper is fun again.


I also got to take my Habu out today...perfect for a gusty day


Cheer!!!

Stardate 2.22.2014

Pilots Log:
This morning session ranks in my top 5, picture perfect conditions. My personal favorite, marble skies. It really made my Habu seem fast. Redbull 130 was cutting out at 2:30....some of my 1cell batts for the Nano must go. They can't handle FFF.

minor crack on the nano cpx redbull...blade scrape on the 130x redbull...low batts gyro was super weak on the power down rotation.


the regular 130x comes with me tomorrow


hope everybody is having a blast this Saturday! Cheers from Cali!

This is my Blade Nano CPX RedBull, I call her my Nano Red BL... since she has a BL upgrade from Horizon. she is now my favorite micro flyer. The body came out of the 3channel coax Blade heli that is now discontinued. You can still order the body.


The Black heli in the background was my first attempt. My MCPX V2 with a custom painted Fai body.

These guys really excell in FFF

I'm getting a Nano soon but I'm keeping most of my fleet. These guy are perfect for scale bodies. Blade MCPX, I have both V1s and V2s....a BL conversion and a true MCPX BL. I enjoy each version.


I want a Cobra, Huey, Hind, and Apache. it seems I have enough mcpxs mwahahaha lol just felt funny when I lined the helis up.


I had to share

I am almost done with my second FAI fuse project. mCPx that can be safely flown in low light conditions. Well my tail LEDs kept poppin...ordered new ones. For now it's almost done just missing the illuminated tail blades.


Yep I'm keeping the V1 and V2s in the conversation.
