Decided to do some "Old School" Turbine flying today..

Broke out the Intrepid Turbine with the Wren MW54 Heli engine...

We've been so busy with other projects that I simply haven't flown this in at least 3 years...

Checked the Batteries (replaced one with a defective cell), Fueled it up with Kero AND Propane (yes THAT old school ), and damned if she didn't fire right up...

Flybarred, 401 Gyro with 9254 servo, DS 8311 servos, Duralite batteries, Propane start...

Now to figure out why I quit flying it...

Probably because you've been too busy spending all that money you're making !!

Been there, done that and old enough to know better.....

It flew just like it did many years ago!! No issues at all. The headspeed was still spot on, trims were good, etc.

Now I did NOT go thrash it around, I didn't even plan on flying it, was just gonna run the engine (if it started).. But it seemed to be raring to go, so I just couldn't resist....

I'll try to get vids next I put her up.

I've had quite a few in the air, but they were a bit more Industrial... Everyone needs to play once in awhile...
