Finally found time to put the 59 back together, was getting the motor screech again.
Turns out I did have a crispy bullet on the ESC end, guess I didnt get it soldered perfectly.
It did last over a year that way though. Put a new bullet on and will give it a whirl
next time out.

I think I have the 104 power issues fixed. I was PMing with Joe Smith who told me he had issues with other firmware on the ICEHV160 other than 3.27. I was running 3.28 since it was the latest non-beta. I just did a driveway test with 3.27 and it sounded great.

I'm off this week and think I'll hit Rogue on Wed for some 104 testing

I think I'm still running 3.27 on my heli ICE2 HV80, I remember reading about problems when 3.28 came out and I decided 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it'. I may venture out to rogue on Friday or Sunday.

Whoo hoo!!!! I got 5 flights on the 104 today and she held together

Chris was saying Phil wanted to come out Thurs and was talking about coming out for a bit. I could fly some Thurs morn if folks are flying but not too long.

Friday would be no problem and/or Sat but I'm out Sunday.

104 fly's again (0 min 12 sec)


Looks like you were holding back, I think you could go a few inches lower.

He tried to send two but only one was attached. If he sends the other I will post it. Looks pretty cool to see it in action again.
