Futaba, yep! Dan and Gav are the Futaba boys, Mode 1. I guess it is a majority rules thing. My club is mainly mode 1 so it was obviously the one to learn, as you would have more people available to teach you.

Caleb, Mark, Martin & myself are also mode 1! No Aussie mode 2 pilots coming to NZ. No probs to teach others on mode 2.

I'm flying over with Mark & Martin. Gonna be fun!

Seen Mark's Aeolus go, looks the goods! You guys will be shocked how narrow it is.

Bringing my 700E Vbar nightflyer and Avant E-Aurora Vbar if it's out in time.

Cheers, Kev.

Yep, he knows that , he just will not admit it At least he is is a diehard Futaba man after i showed him the light, so he can change his mind at times
He needs us to test fly the new chums Heli,s that he cannot convince to start off with mode 2.
He is working hard to ensure the neighbours trip is enjoyable when they fly in at the moment..

Guys, Noel has just taken off from Norfolk island heading towards lord Howe island in a microlite on the way to Aussie

Ok, He has just landed at Howe, that is 4 1/2 hours flying time.
That is a long way over water in a light aircraft.

Left Howe halfway to port macqaurie at the monent, these online tracking devices are great . Keep an eye on your mates travels

Yeah one of the pilots is a heli flier from way back , he is in the Microlite , the other is the owner of our flying site , he is in a 172 which is a little slower that the Microlite, they ended up at a place called Ross Glen for the night , they will have a Tiki tour around Aussie then come back in the 172,.
Main point also is the technology that is available for the everyday user which gives someone on line a visual record of where they are and where the have been , great safety feature ..

Back to Heli,s
I hope you guys are going to support Kevin with his Funfly at the end of Feb , it will be an event not to be missed with a great bunch of guys.

I know you can fly mode 1 but also know mode 2 is better

I would fall asleep flying a small plane to Aussy, it is boring enough in a jet let alone spending half your life at 140knts in a tin bird over the Tasman.

Life is like a bath, the longer you stay in it the more wrinkled you get.

AAAAH, but is it , here you are bringing over some really good fliers and they have proved that you can fly the pants off a heli on Mode 1

I have seen in my years of experience that some manouevers can be done easier in mode 1 ,and others easier in Mode 2, so at the end of the day is one better that the other

Mode#1 - you tell him Graeme

Footey - you are wrong.

I started to fly like most Mode#1 pilots in a club where Mode#1 was the only mode flown. It is simply what you are most used to - get over it

Oh yeah... almost forgot. M1 is betta
