I hope eveyone has weathered the storms. Yesterday while driving to my property I noticed a box spring in the top of some trees.
For us it looks like an early storm system.

I have to pay more attention to this thread, I missed out on some secret stuff.

David22, The vibs tend to be a little more but with good prop balancing it's not bad. I take a little more care around the firewall with some pinning and epoxy\glassing where needed.

Nah, no secret. If you have 6 and a twist 40, and would like to test it, let me know.

It is not that bad as long as it is tuned well and prop balanced. I don't think it is much worse that a glow really.

Wayne Yes I am LOL and always a doller short too Nice Zagi too that is a fun one for sure.

Kerwin its a possability he lied to me but I don't think so I've been going there for years, his shop is in Mass so our entire club goes to him as there is nothing good in Our area of NY. he does treat us really well and he knows when the NY boys show up we usually empty our wallets into his register LOL Did you try and climb up to the box spring and take a nap on it.

As Far as the G26 not being able to use an EI which I felt was weird at the time, he gave me some explanation about it having or not having the Mag on it and needed to turn X amount of rpms to fire up which was probably my first clue that I wasn't going to be able to hand flip it to start it. But I must have not understood what he was talking about. of Course I thought I did which led to the first tripe vid I just posted lol That was 3 years ago so I don't exactly remember the conversation exactly now. all I knew was I bought the G26 I wasn't able to get an EI for it and I couldn't hand start it the first time I tried and my regular 12V Starter was way too slow to turn it over. which led to my 12v/24v starter box.

Fixxin that thing is Beautiful

Davecrash bummer on the tree Yak but it looks completely undamaged hope getting it down kept it in Tact. My cuz's mustang hit the top of a tree and was was flawless as it stayed there for almost 2 weeks then when we dropped it down we smashed it LOL it missed the big net we had draped all along the bottom in case it fell when we weren't there. so finally a tree climber got up there and let it go and it hit my cuz's arm spun and smacked into the ground. He repaired it in another 3 weeks and flew it until he destroyed it.

Good luck to everyone in the Tornado paths, I wish the best for all of you.

we just had 5 inches fall and some more is coming in today for a total of a possible 9 I don't see that happening as its mostly melting as it hits roads are fine and I still haven't fired up the Snow blower probably tonight though.

It'll work, but not correctly as physics between the two versions are very different. Once I get 6 setup for good reference, I'll try 5.5. However, if you'd like to play with it, I'll send it. If you can get it right, you can upload an AV after I upload the model.

Once a 5.5 AV is done, it should work fine for 4, 4.5, and 5 users as well.

What kind of program would I need to work with it? I'm pretty dumb with some of that programming stuff.

All of the physics work is done in the editor in RF. All of the weights have been set to actual weights of the real world counterparts. Most of the adjustments would probably be with back torque and prop wash and things like that. I will try both versions myself to see just how different they may be.

If it don't require too many brain cells I'll give it a whirl.
