Managed to get out and fly two flights today. Nice weather and very comfortable temps. I went early to beat all the holiday pilots and found I was the late sleeper. I arrived at 9:00am and everybody was there for the holiday. Wonderful flights.

Thanks guys
yep the Logo is one sweet machine. I get more and more comfortable and confident with it every flight, and my flying is getting closer to my sim flying. It still needs longer servo horns pretty badly, I can't get enough travel on anything with the small align horns it came with. That canopy needs a paint job too. I'll try and get that stuff done this weekend and maybe get another vid up

Did you fly today ?

No.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

I had a great flight with the Logo today. Managed to do somewhat of a piro loop and a sloppy piro tictoc (sort of lol)

With the 2100T and 9254 the tail is pretty rock solid and REALLY makes things easier than with the 450 (HS-81 on the tail).

Dan the Man, really smooth flying! awesome.

Rain Rain, go away, come back when I'm in bed....

Flew the Gaui EP100 at work in the warehouse. I put an 800mAh 3S pack on it and it was punchy. Need to take it outside to tune up the throttle curves. I probably need another pinion on it but I'll just fight with the curves first.

Nice flight yesterday 09-11-09. Since my last video I've dumped the Colco gyro in favor of a GY-401 real-deal, added a full metal head and tail, got a DX7 finally, and sorted out some high-speed tail vibes. It was the belt.

I've been working on stall turns in the sim and, whattya know - the stick movements translate into real-life as well. Still haven't quite got the NuttZorZ to try a flip yet, but I'm feeling much more comfortable with high speeds and altitude.

Current setup:
EXI 450
Alpha 400 motor
Volcano 30 ESC
Full metal head/tail
Align 325 Pro woodies
HXT900's on cyclic
GY-401/HS81 on rudder
DX7/AR6100E TX/RX

Good stuff Shiz, nice flying!

Installed some longer servo arms on the Logo. Wow that made a nice difference! Running +-13 now and a whole lot more cyclic.

Here's another vid. Piroflips are improving

Thanks, Dan. I want one of those!
Heli_KV:

Sure. Here it is:
ME: sorted out some high-speed tail vibes. (<ISSUE) It was the belt. (<FIX)
Just being a twit.

Soon after I installed the EXI CNC tailbox I noticed a bad high-speed vibration. I removed the head, yada-yada, found out it was coming from the tail section. Changed tail blades; changed slider and hub - the only thing that helped was loosening the belt, and that only helped some.

I finally changed the belt back to the old belt and all was OK again.

There have been some reports of the belt that comes with the CNC upgrade kit being stiff and brittle, leading to bad vibrations. One person at RCG even had his snap in flight.

Still well worth the $40 for the combo. Just get a belt or keep yours if you get one.
