Hi Heli drivers, our flying club had it's summer picnic last Saturday in Sisters, Oregon, and although our state is burning and smokey, everybody had a great time!...I haven't been able to walk very well all year, but I got out the Hughes500 with TRex700 mechanics I put together last winter, and put her on the flight line, and although my wonderful wife always claims she is not a videographer, I asked her if she would take some pictures, and I'm happy she at least got about 2 1/2 minutes of my 7-minute flight!

Hey bud, looks like you guys had fun! That 500 looks great.

All helis and planes have an expiration date stamped on them...you only find it after you crash!!

Thanks Barry and Steve!....I really enjoy building and working on the helicopters, and didn't learn to fly one till just recently in my mid-sixties, and the Hughes700, and this Defender600 have been very rewarding and educational ( I cringe when I think about how I set-up my early throttle and pitch curves!)....but I think I am ready for a new winter project, and have been considering a Roban 700-size Apache, and although I have done extensive searches for build and flying videos, it seems to be pretty sparse....I would luv to hear if any of you guys have any info or tips about the Apache, good or not so good (...and Steve, Thanks for posting all the recent videos from Dalton, the heli's looked beautiful and everybody seemed to be having a fun time!)
