Got back last nite from the event. MAN, it was hot and sticky! I had a great time tho, it was run very well nice and smooth as always, I really like the way they ran the inpound box and the DJ thing was nice too. Got to put some faces on a few RR pilots and saw some great flying.They had a nib event this yr.(yer gonna love it). Inverted weed mowing in the tall grass and a rappy won! That was great fellas just great! I sure met some friendly people and wish I could go to an event like that every weekend, sigh...............there is a young pilot there that is going to be someone serious to contend with very soon as far as 3D is concerned with, im gonna keep an eye on him"(good luck Raptor V2) !"
Anyway, just wanted to say thanks to all the fellas who looked over my Rappy and especially a BIG thank-you to Eric for helpin Dan W his 550T gyro it meant a lot to both of us. Oldheliman

Ya, I have to say "dusty" is an understatement for that gravel rd. isnt it? Its a good thing the breeze what little we had, pushed the dust away from us Sat .or that would have been ugly.(Tho the river didnt smell exactly inviting either). I didnt notice any diff really(gyro) but I can tell ya for sure a 32 eng just isnt enough for the deep summer heat after a second spin in my 540 the heli just stalled, I need to either start running 30% or get a bigger mill period, the 20% im running is ok when its cooler outside. Im going to work on pulling to 0 pitch more than I do hopefully that will help to unload the lil 32 in fast tail manouvers, Dave, havin the driven tail isnt helpin me either I think. Ill bet it was a killer heatwave out there today. I felt kinda hard core just being out in it all day yesterday........................MAN that shower felt good last nite!!!!!!!!!
