Got lucky and only messed up some tail gears on my 600 this year. Been conservative due to cash flow issues though. I need to push more next season. I guess I will start buying spare parts now!

Hello all

My first post ever here, long time lurker! I got Trex 600LE back on 7-10 and had 32 crash free flights. I just started doing some smack down style flying..J/K..LOL.. I did graduate to my carbon blades about 15flights ago and have done flips,rolls and inverted high up. The last time I went out my dang 2 in 1 gave up on me and lost the tail but recovered nicely and was thinking get down NOW! Brought her down and about 3 feet off the ground SLAMO! Full right into the runway. I know I have read about the 2-1 but it looked like an improved model so I trusted it. I performed the Ron Lund fix and tested it and all is OK now.

Just thought I would chime in

LOL,,No time for Brown Streak!!

Thanks Papa,,, I have been a planker for years and swore I would never fly a stupid Heli,,,LOL,, got my Rex in July of 2010 and am enjoying the challenge. I have a blade 400 and a Trex 600 and a SIM and was kind of proud that I was staying within my abilities and not crashing due to dumb thumbs and then out of the blue my radio switch goes out on me. I was coming in quickly due my gyro resetting while I was flying and I was no more than 3 feet up when it rolled right for no reason. Absolutely no time for a brown streak,,,LOL I was in total dismay.

I picked up a lot of good info lurking around here. It also helps to have a my buddy "Carzan" guiding me. He is a great pilot and his son is an awesome pilot.

Keith

P.S. Here in South East Texas it was ~70° today but windy as hell, two days from now we are gonna get a hard freeze.....

There's always time for a brown streak! he he Don't be fooled,just look closer

My flying time has been drastically cut, first off with the wife's health requiring me to be a full time caregiver, and now I'm having complications with my diabetes, massive infection in my leg

I haven't even felt like flying the sim

We got our first good snowfall here, and it's pretty cold out, but that's never stopped me in the past, so hopefully soon I can get back out there. I haven't broken anything in a while

I did however buy a nice big nitro monster truck

I guess you are right!

LOL---> odam2k...There might have been a brown streak left when the gyro reset (I forgot about that) it was kind of hairy when that happened. The crash when the radio left me was too quick, but there may have been some unnoticed streakage!

odam,,,I hope you and the wife get better! I have a 5B, Slash 4X4, and a Jato that keeps me busy also.

Hey Odam, Sorry to hear about your leg bro! You gotta watch those babies with the diabetes! I hope the wifes back is getting better! I've had pneumonia for the last 6 or 7 weeks. I think I'm finally starting to shake it! I've been flying the sim the last couple of weeks but wasn't even doing that for a bit there. I'm really getting the itch for more of those crazy brown streak moments! (not really) I hope this year will bring far less crashing!

Yeah, that's true! Heck, I'm still waiting for some parts I ordered back in October! For the Frenzy! I think JS models is doing a bunch of changes and not running the regular parts too much!
