Sorry to highjack the thread, but Micks passing made copying this information
seem that much more important. Life is short. If I didn't do it now, I would
probably forget later, and you never know when the Good Lord will call you up
to join Him.

Again, my condolences to all who knew him personally.

* Posts moved to another thread out of respect. A little late now, sometimes I don't think.
I am very sorry if I offended anyone.

That's terrible news. Mick wasn't that old. I have been helping him learn about helis for a long time and he was one of the best "students" I ever had. I hadn't heard from him since he finally bought that quad, so he could stop destroying his pretty Walkera scale heli. What a shame!

My condolences to all family and friends of stormforce. I had a lot of help through his efforts. May his journey onwards be smooth and flybarless.

I haven't been on here for a while as life has put this hobby on the back burner for a while but had to jump in after whizgig emailed me last night. Mick or stormforce's was instrumental to me loving this hobby. He always had time to explain tricks and tips to a newbie and would always answer my questions. We exchanged parts and he even sent me his old walkers 22e to tinker with for free. He only lived several hours from me and we joked about catching up one day for a fly and a beer. So mick I hope you are at peace and my thoughts with your loved ones at this time. Regards Scott

I'd like to let this thread end with the condolences to Mick, who was here since the beginning. It's his baby in big parts.
He was a true teacher, showed many of us a way and I think he deserves it.
So please let us continue with all problems, technical issues and small talk regarding the 9116 here.

And yes Balr14 Mick was only 47 and we spoke on steam 2-3 hours before hand about our heli's and that he was about to order yet another heli, his partner is at this moment packing up all of his heli's and parts and tools ect to sell them cheaply to someone in the area where they live.

I will pass on everyones condolences to Mick's family.

Thank you.

Well goodbye Mate, till we meet again and have a beer and do some flyin together.

The thread will continue here.

I am saddened to read that stormforce is no longer with us. Although i am ten years older than he. When ever i post a question, i was like the younger brother waiting to hear valuable information from a older brother. I remember reading awhile back someone asking had anyone heard from stormforce.It was in june that he gave me valuable information on how to setup my walkera 4f180. That was the last time i heard from him.I will miss you fellow pilot. If it is true that you find all the things you love in heaven . Than brother you are in a place where your batteries will never run low.Until we meet again, spoolup and fly high. - James, Henderson - aka ( oldspool ).

You will be missed

First to Micks family, my prayers are with you,its so sad to lose a loved one so young and so unexpectently. I just want to say that without Micks curiosity and experimentation and then posting his findings I would have given up on this hobby long ago,he greatly influenced my decision not to give up and to move forward. The 9116 was my intro into the mode 2 helis and with Micks special kind of dedication to this thread ,he indirectly helped me gain the confidence to move up to 6ch CP helis. Mick , now you are Flying with the Angels which is where ,I think, we all ultimately wish to be someday. Many Thanks Again ,You will be sorely missed. Steve

Hi
I do not know if you're serious, but to remove the canopy, you place two fingers on the frame of the chopper and the thumb and another finger pulls you out the side of the canopy and you're done. Do not forget to remove the screw under the chopper for release the canopy.
Bye Gilles

Actually, after a few flights the canopy screw will vibrate out unless you check it religously...I've been flying my 9104 without the screw in there for quite a while with no ill effects.
