Its time I got my ass into gear & upload some
old ones dated back in March.

( Prior to my wife returning from deployment )

As you can see from the lack of entries to my blog
it's been hectic at home
more than at the park

Hi all
I just picked up my first non-counter rotating heli.

After only having a twister medevac for a short time &
only a few hours on g5.5

I RECON I"M READY

As I have nerves of steel & no fear
So I went the hog with a Blade 450 3D BNF

The binding went well without major probs
The first 4 hover flights went too well ?
Maybe someone is telling me there is a storm coming

Anyway,I went out the back shaking like hell froze over
on my fifth flight with my video cam.

AND GUESS WHAT ?

This is what happened

My dog Boofa couldn't give a dog's bg

All three flight vid's are with one lipo

Hi
I just built a lateral balance jig that I can do by my own
I can't keep waiting for mates to come around.

So I tested it several times on my Trojan t-28D
and it seems to work fine each time.

I'll still double check this with my mate Actflyer who has
helped my get this far in flying.

Cheers
