Good one Rick,

I think, regardless of age, we have a lot of Old Farts here. It's a good place to hang out and swap lies and stories.

Nothing going on here heli wise with me, I'm in another holding pattern with the 450 Pro. If you remember, I stripped the front umbrella gear set on the TT.
Got that in and made a test flight, only to find out I had a vibration at mid throttle. I found that to be a bent torque tube. The HK 450 Pro TT uses an solid aluminum shaft. I tried to straighten it, but actually made it worse. So, I ordered 2X Align tubes that are carbon fiber and don't bend. (They will break though) Last two days, it's been rather cool and windy.

Dave
