That's kinda funny that mine does all that spinning and chopping noises.....just before it hits the ground. Wonder how you get rid of the "hit the ground" part.

Cool but if I ever get a 12th helicopter it will be fuel.

Make the ground lower, of course!!

Charging some batteries tonite for the 109. Hope to get out tomorrow sometime.

Jay The mason jar in my house can never seem to get full, to many hands trying to sneak into it for their own purposes! I like it but ain't no way the "Boss" is going to let it come trhough the door!

Jay,

Thanks so much for the 700E videos, totally awesome.

I'm not a fan of that much 3D action. However, it really does show the the capabilites of the helicopter and the SKILLS of the pilots. Can't dispute that at all.

YIKES! In the first video, I recall Tim saying it's a 6 horsepower motor, maybe more, sounded like he was not sure.

That second video, done in low light was awesome, I forget the time frame, about 3:50 or so, the flips were incredible.

Thanks for sharing, Bless ya,
Dave

Lower Ground is always a good thing.

My batteries are charged for the 450 and 600. Hope the weather holds for awhile.

Opppps, Liz has a few chores for me. Flying, maybe or maybe NOT.


The 700E, I'm betting 2 grand on the low side.

Close to a .60 size? Bigger? I thought I heard 7hp...but I'm deaf anyway. I'm chomping the bit on a 500 size, and you guys shove a 700 under my nose...what a bunch of ....... The 700 is tremendous though and watching those two thrash it around makes me feel like I'm mentally defective...I think a loop is good stuff, and I've done 1 roll without crashing.

BOT/WEBBIE Project completed


Here is the completed work to get the CAMCORDER up in the air with a SONY WEBBIE CAMCORDER.
The carrier plate is shown and the WEBBIE installed and ready to fly.
Last minute addition will need to have a couple of rubber bands tied around the cam body. The platform bends slightly to allow for the rotating lens to
swing around. There is ONE example of this set-up, done in ARIZONA of which this is a copy. The film made with this combination could well be declared a professional movie. I hope to get the same results. This will be done before the week end is over b/c weather in Houston is perfect for the next whole week.

Rick...I have ONE consern. Note the holder for the webbie, the back sticks up at the rear ABOVE the camera and is angled...like a spoiler. It may not effect flight, but it might....what do you think? The webbie it's self looks fairly aerodynamic, but the area sticking up behind it will want to act like an elevator.

VIC ; I grant you a very good point.
In fact just that was considered while I assembled the project.
Here is a view straight from the side. The top of the supporting piece
comes just "below" the straight line drawn back to the elevator. This
elevator is a moving whole, not stab + elevator which increase the
effectiveness of the rotating force. Any turbulence created exactly at
the C.G. should be wasted by the time the molecules arrive at the back.
Additionally, the wing extends 120" which by itself, with a chord of almost
a wole foot ( 12" ) is MORE THAN ENOUGH to smooth out imperfections in
the overall flow.
I believe it should work well. Finding out REAL SOON.
Thanks for the commentary and supporting the effort.

as an ADD ON to my previous report on the WEBBIE PROJECT :

I have acquired a camcorder that plays and records up to two hours
that weighs in at 0.7 oz . it's the size of the STICK OF GUM package.
The webbie project will be airborne with the glider but the next project
will go up IN THE BLADE SR ... !
stay tuned.
JUSTIFIABLY OLD + CRAZY ... ! ( does anybody care? )

Spring maidens!


Rick- I can't wait for your video fromthe maiden with it. You did a fabulous job of it. Looking at the picture you should be fine and not see any flight changes from it. Keep us posted!

So the house cleared out early this am and I had 2 hours before my first work appointment. So down to the workshop I go and swap the 13T pinion on the Flasher for a 12T so as not to kill the 35A ESC! Dusted it down, did a quick once over, and loaded in the van along with the Bf 109. The local soccer field is still very wet but it wasn't muddy, just a little soggy when you step. Perfect for belly landings! So the 109 went up first and the handlaunch was rusty to say the least. Got on to the elevator in time to keep it from going into the ground Rest of the flight went well and a nice smooth landing. A few weeks ago, I took some 30 minute epoxy and watered it down with rubbing alcohol. I spread it thinly over the front scoop and where the wing makes contact with the ground upon landing. I worked out well so I am pleased with that.

Next the Flasher was armed and I admit to being VERY nervous. Not having flown it in so long I had to slowly go over the DX6 switches to make sure everything was where it was supposed to be and that throttle hold definately worked and it wasn't in idle up!. I let it spool up real slowly so as to shake the cob webs off of both it and me! She lifted off right where I rememebr it to be and went into a niice hover 3 foot off the ground. I was really concerned with going from a plank to a heli and inputting the wrong control so for the first 3 minutes I just kept it in a hover to make sure I remembered what to do! From there it was a few piros and then just slow FF in a figure 8 pattern to get reacquainted with it. All in all it went real well. I got 1 more flight on the 109 later in the afternoon on my way home from appointments that was just flawless!

I am SOOOOO glad spring has arrived here in the NE!

Rick....by all means....let me know what happens. I believe you may be right, but it sticks up enough to get my attention.
