I'm still here. Working on getting another scale heli in the air. Waiting for a Medusa motor to lift the extra weight better. In the meantime, I'm back to flying my old MX400 as a pod-and-boom.

Last time I went to Arbor they were doing soccer, so I went to the abandoned schoolyard in Huntington Beach. The next time I went to HB, Tomie and Andy were there, along with a bunch of the other local regulars. Then some nutcase neighbor who lives a couple blocks away (his house doesn't even border the field) called the cops, spouting municipal codes, and complaining about our "dangerous heli's crashing into houses". The regulars say he's called the cops a few times before, ranting about the "dangers of blades spinning at 3000 rpm crashing repeatedly into people's houses, roofs and backyards". The regulars say no one has crashed onto anyone's property, and the nutcase neighbor can't prove that they have either. Even though the cops were sympathetic to us and we were not asked to leave, I have a feeling it will be just a matter of time before that field will become off-limits as well.

Pretty sad that a field full of noisy, soccer fans and players, who make all kinds of noise and mess are socially acceptable, yet a handful of guys flying clean quiet electric heli's are social pariahs.

Sigh...sometimes you have to wonder what all these type of people do for recreation, because at the rate they're going, pretty soon every outdoor activity will become illegal...

I'll be going out of town on a business trip, so I won't be able to go anywhere this weekend. Maybe I'll see you all next weekend after I return.

Guess the Szabo's arn't comming to Buzzin the Border now and will be in Las Vegas. Isn't somebody here going to Las Vegas. Man, you got the hot ticket.

I'm still going to San Diego, got my hotel reseved, but kind of sad the Szabo's won't be there. Was really looking forward to seeing them live.

Tropper Sam, I'll need a super double shot man to mourn the loss of the Szabo brothers not making it. Hope you got something good ready to mix!!!

Airboss, I am only loyal to a GOOD TIME.. The 40% edge runs on a 3W150. hauls it around pretty damn good. After Vegas she is up for sale or trade. Gonna go back down to a 33% and take the rest and get me a killer 90..I just dont seem to have the time to go to the field and fly the big birds anymore. The Helo's really fit the busy lifestyle and hell they are so challenging I love em..

Airboss, I dont fly at any one field. I fly at OCMA, NOrco, Circle City, Riverside, Hemet, Temecula, Valley Flyers and way back in the day PRADO..As far as the 50cc thing goes the nicest 50cc I have flown is the SD models Yak. It simply flies like a bigger plane. Check one out.That N9 is sweet, looking forward to seeing it up close and personal. I hear you have been out to OCMA. How is the new heli area? I was suppposed to put it in when we did the runway but some politics got in the way. Good to see everything going in some direction over there. Good luck with the N9 and the 50cc. Keep your eyes on the classifieds guys always looking to move up sell there stuff cheap.. If you can find one the Double Vision is awesome.

how was the flying on sunday? did anyone get to AP? i survived the M/C ride but did not compete, instead i coached a beginner on how to survive the day and stay in the running. he did very well and ended up 6th in his class this was the second time on his Trials bike. we were under a smoke cloud all day from the blue ridge fire.
