Happy New Year guys! So glad RR is up. And so glad we made this great project work! 3 fully RTF helis donated to Wounded warriors. That was fun. Small glitch hit us. The motor and pipe I shipped was lost in shipping, so the pantera has not shipped. Not sure what the shipping issue is and I cant look into it until thursday. In the mean time I am pulling a hyper and pipe off one of my 2 600 so we can finish the pantera and get it in the right hands.

I want to say Thank you to all of you guys who donated. It was a really neat thing to be a part of. $80 set of blades turned into 3 RTF helis and a pile of other good stuff, donated to a worthy cause, in our area of interest. That is pretty dang cool in my book!
Cant wait for next year!
What do ya think?

RIP ROMAN

A big Thank YOU to everyone.
I expect to hear sometime today that boxes are waiting for me at the Red Cross office at Walter Reed. If not today, then very soon.

I will make an announcement and post pictures of the wounded warrior receiving the helicopter. He knows that it is coming. I hope to do it this coming weekend. I don't yet know where the other two birds will be placed. They need a worthy home with someone who can fly and enjoy them. I will keep you all informed...

I will be at Walter Reed tomorrow afternoon.. the guys begged me to hold the session on Thursday when our usual day is Tuesday... two holidays in a row on Tuesday. They did not want to miss a week so we just rearranged things.

We finished the full build of Mike's Trex500 last Thursday. Weather looks to cooperate tomorrow.. we should be able to test fly it tomorrow. He is not quite ready to fly it... needs more sim time, but he is really anxious to get going... so maybe a small hover hop??

You guys are the best!

SO GLAD RUNRYDER IS BACK ON THE AIR.

Trex 500 and Pantera pics
As you can see the 500 was done and gone. The Pantera's motor and pipe should be here soon. It will get installed, fired, tested, and sent out as well....thanks to all that gave! BTW I will also include all the parts and electronics that were given that were not used in the builds so they should have a healthy amount of spares and extra electronics as well!!!!

Trex 500 Arrived Safe and Sound
I wanted to post and tell you that the Trex500DFG Pro arrived yesterday at Walter Reed Hospital. Except for the drool marks all over the heli from the guys today, it is in excellent flyable shape. No shipping damage. I called LaughingStill when I got home and got the lowdown on the transmitter setup.

I am thinking about holding a bit of a competition... best pilot at the end of March can trade their flybar heli for the DFG... that will get them to hit the sticks. I would get me going for sure.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you... it has found a good home. Pictures next week. I even got a new guy that wants to start today. He was doing pretty good on a dual axis beginner heli. He was all ready to give it back to me at the end of the session.

What are you doing??? I said... it is yours. I wish all of you could see how happy these guys are when they get something like that.

Nothing, it showed up 3 days ago it got lost in the mail for a while so Frank pulled a motor and pipe from one of his Helis and shipped it. The day before Frank's showed, yours did. The Pantera will be shipped this week

Really... the only thing that needs sorting is how fast I can drive to New Jersey to give this to Colin. Should I disregard all the speed limits knowing most cops would never pull me over on this mission?

Guys... this is fantastic. Pics for sure and some video. This is huge.

...and when this is done, do we want to do it again? I have a Century Hawk Pro that will likely never come off the shelf again along with parts for it. Frank knows the heli. It's no junk. I'll donate the airframe, a JR GT500 gyro and a custom painted fiberglass canopy. We can start accumulating the rest. I also have a brand new never flown Compass Knight 3D that I might throw into the program after this. Frank, maybe me need a new thread?

HA! Rock n freaking roll! Anthony I heard a hint about your contribution. Very glad to see it work out! (Saw you jet, thats cool BTW)

Marty, Yea man lets keep this rolling. New thread? Thats cool. Im happy to give the reins over or keep at it, whatever works for the group.

Perhaps a build up to July 4th? The start of an on going out reach? It would be cool to see where we can take this. A the very least help a few folks out......

I think it may be a good idea to put this effort in the books, Thank everyone maybe get some end user pics/stories. Then start all over. Im liking the July 4th tie in but hey

What do you all think?

Program
I just had a good chat with Bill...(Heli Splatter) and he could use all the stuff we can send...it doesn't necessarily have to be built or running...

These guys enjoy the building and tweaking as it gives them something to do. I'd say if we have anything that we're not using or needing then we should consider just donating it. I think it would be great to get this stuff in the hands of guys that would appreciate it more than we do.

I know I personally have a few helis that I really don't need...so i'm going to be happy to help out.

Thank you everyone!
Please keep them eyes peeled for future opportunities to reach out and help a fellow flyer! I'll be starting a new thread for a new build and possibly another HANDS ON special event, soon.
This was a lot of fun!
