Helicopter Training

Just started flying Helicopters earlier this year. Started doing flip overs and can fly oval pattern flight pretty well. NUST Have Well Over 100+ Flights By niw. Also been pretty lucky where I have only had 1 issue where the power system shut down but managed only minor damage, this happened around flight 20.

I just recently picked up a goblin 700 and it is such a smooth flying bird Both my trex 550 and tge goblin are dine with the angry bird scheme. Going to a large heli funfly this Saturday in Burlington MA with one of my closest friends which happens to be a well established heli pilot and my instruck or as well. Can't wait, should be a blast.

How are you liking the Goblin 700? I've been thinking of grabbing one for my grandson and I. I know I can handle flying it, but I'm not too sure about him.

Thanks!

Been flying for over 20 years. An absolute RC Helicopter enthusiast!

Well, after many years of trials and tribulations, I'm back flying! Talk about Brown Streaks! People say it's like riding a bike; but this time it could hurt you real bad. Thank you LORD for my Sim! Just finished going over all fittings and bearings, and upgrading my Main ? Auto gears and one way bearings on my 450 "Sexy Rexie". She's looking good. New batteries and I'm ready. Also going for my Airman Certificate too. Whew......lot's of studying......again. But that's OK, I dig it! Hope all is well with everyone. Will be checking back from time to time.

Talk about brown streaks!!! What a few weeks! Been flying the 450 with new batteries and the elevator servo froze up YIKES! She was up 30 feet in our back field and just started to roll over and descend out of my view! We live on a little hill so I just envisioned what was going on I didn't know the servo had failed. I didn't know what was going on! So said a quick prayer and started looking in the field. I found her laying on her side beeping because I turned off the TX. NO DAMAGE!!!! Not even a scratch on the brand new Canopy! WOW! not even a bent feather or main shaft! Thank you JESUS! When I inspected her is when I noticed the elevator servo was very hard to move....it did move, but stiff. when I hooked up the RX and that servo It made the RX go into Fail Safe mode. That's why there was no damage, besides angels taking care of it. Of course Align stopped making that servo. So had to buy all new cyclic set.......darn! I also wanted everyone to know I passed the FAA Airman Certification! YAY! I am a licensed Drone Pilot! Hope everyone is well here. Wishing you Blue Calm Skies
