Just had to say I've completed my 100th flight in the Fury Extreme

http://www.cjwoods.com/Fury_log.htm

What a great heli, never any problems and only maintenance required has been to change the sprag oil once and occasionaly regrease the tail rotor gears.

Having great fun with this bird

Awesome Log, dude.
I keep one, but it's on a note pad.
Do you use a digital recorder with speech recognition software? That would be cool.

When you want to go balls to the wall, bump up that headspeed from 1500 and you'll freak out. Also...I'd put that coolpower back in.

Thanks Conrod,

No, no recorder just type it up when I get back

I think the headspeed settings on my log are out of date. I actually run at 1650, 1750, 1800 - but it's never on 1650 for more than about 5 seconds as she speeds up

I'm sticking with Magnum for a bit, the OS91 seems to prefer it to coolpower, and I'm sort of getting used to the extra smoke

Cheers

Clive

Yeah, what a great log. Wish I had the patience for writing one.

My thoughts re headspeed. I think you can do most maneuvers with a top headspeed of 1650 - 1700. Some people like to do flips and rolls and other maneuvers at 1900, some prefer 1800. When I took lessons with Todd Bennett, he told me that if I kept the headspeed low, I would learn more about collective management - hence smoother flying - and the efficient use of power and that my heli would last longer since it wouldn't be going gangbusters at a high headspeed. Todd actually recommended 1650!

Again, great log. The Fury is a great machine. I must be pretty sick because I am actually dreaming of flying my heli!!

sharam,

Thanks for the comments and glad you like the logs.

I actually never use idle 2, both 1 and 2 have the same pitch curve -10, 0, +10 and I use the 1750 headspeed. Good to know Todd thinks this is a good speed

I also dream of flying my helis - this is really sad

Todd actually recommended 1650
cmon Sharam....i have idle up 2 at 1500 rpm's...nice and slow....its fun to fly it on that head speed. Of course my stick banging is at 1750. no more than that though! Todd and i did the math at his house and 1750 was right on the power band of the YS 91 with a 8.45 gear ratio. I like the 1500 head speed casue if i crash the blades stop quicker and dont do as much damage
