Still Happy

Lou,

Yes indeed! Thanks for asking! Still very happy with my Urukay Competitions. I've had them flying for just over a year now and haven't had to replace any major components (just the usual wear items for all helis like thrust bearings, a few ball links, and head dampers). Still running the original belts, gears, pullleys, swashplates, and bearings across the entire mechanics. Regretfully i haven't spent the time to tally flight count on these models, but it is considerable. So much practice and testing over the last year. Component wise, same story. My Futaba HV/sbus servos are still going strong with no slop, CGY750 is now running v2.0 firmware controling the models better than ever, Castle Edge 160 ESCs still run cool sending consistent, reliable power to the stout but super smooth OS Motors. Optipower 30C 6s 5000mAH bricks are over a year old too, and power me through the schedules every flight. I easily get 11 minutes of hover flight or 8min of combined hovering and aerobatics.

Regarding rotor head choice, yes, i am still flying the 2-blade heads i used at the 2015 WCs. As i mentioned in this thread, i spent some time testing the 3-blade rotor head again over winter into this Spring, but found it just didn't suit my flying style. Though it felt and presented excellently in hover, it just didn't groove like i was used to in aerobatics. I have no complaints about the head as it's a good design, just didn't suit me personally.

Hope i aswered your question. Thanks again for asking.

Hope to see you all at the US Nationals and Team Trials in a couple weeks in Muncie. I'll be staying for IRCHA as well. Maybe i'll be able to do a demo flight with my Urukay Competiton for those that might like to see it groove through some F3C style maneuvers

Blades

Lou,

I'm using SAB 730-2F FAI blades on my models. Not entirely sure if those have made it into wide production. I think we'll see a production run of FAI blades with the new Thunderbolt series.

2-blade head update

I spoke to SAB while at IRCHA. They informed me the new 2-blade F3C rotorhead will be in production by October! Expect new blades by then too

Also around the same time they will be releasing another new model sharing the F3C rotor head called the Comet. Not necessarily a F3C model... But it sure looks like it'll make big FAST maneuvers. Might just have to get one!!!
