These Align gyros, the suspense just grows. Now all sudden, I get nothing from my 206 as far as rudder and gyro go and I get an ORANGE light on the frequency selection which may indicate a blown digital servo......more research to be done.

Headed out to do more drywall, wont be able to do the 206 till later tonight. Doesn't matter because I can pull a couple flights from the two stock heli's if the wind drops and it's warm enough later today. Payday, I may end up getting 3 new Detrum gyros and install them on all 3 birds. They're not perfect, but I've done mild 3D with them and they work pretty good if they haven't been abused.

Stayed at the drywall till the ceiling was hung. It was an awsome day, no wind, working with the door open and no coat. I decided NOT to mess with helicopters or the bike because when the temps average 22degF during the day, I want the shed to maintain minimal of 70degF. It dont get done unless I do it, so no breaks, all day. Tomorrow will be cosmetic work and seam sealing. Been thinking about the floor.....no barrier or insulation. Just 3/4" particle board, and it's UGLY. I diecided to buy a couple of boxes of the hardwood floor laminate that has padding on the back. THAT will deal the floor and insulate at the same time, same stuff I put in the house. My Harley will like it's new house with hardwood floors....LMAO.

Oh....my 5 sets of FRP 325mm blades showed up today.

Man...my arms hurt from putting that stuff up over my head. I made a makeshift drywall holder to put it close so I could line it up and sink the screws...worked good. My #2 grand daughter hasen't been with me on the job for a couple days and I know I cant put that stuff over my head by myself, so I resorted to making my own drywall holder. It actually worked good, got the drywall 2" from "in place". Since it is flexable, I could secure sections at a time. I named my drywall holder "Terri II". When she saw it with her name on it, she laughed. Sometimes we have to much fun...LMAO.

I wonder if the Harley wants pictures on the wall of other Harleys, and a TV in there?

I seen a bonnie chopped and raked out as a kid, that thing was awsome. Lighter than a full blown Harley chopper, almost to small for 70mph freeway speeds at any distance, but still COOL.

We bought a carbon copy of yesterday, I'm gonna head out back with one of my stock 450 Pro's today. Maybe even the F-16....it hasent flown in a LONG time.

I did fly one of the stock 450 pro's today. Wind was about 4-7mph, not a problem for FFF, but not hover friendly for sure. Flew one battery, called it good and had no close calls. I never even switched it to stunt mode.

Now the drywall is up, I've got the seaming to do. I wasn't very energetic today, but I did get some of that done. According to the weather, we're gonna have 6 days in a row just like today. That translates to riding the Harley, flying R/C, and working on the shed. I've seen 3ft of snow this time of November before, I feel fortunate to being able to do stuff outside.
