Your New Heli
Looks great Ant. How soon until you fly it? On water that is. I would like to see it, on land or on water.
I made a mistake once, but I was wrong?

Well only the fuselage is new. It is one of my R50's, and Ill bring it out next time I go to the field. I used the floats last year in the snow they are alot of fun. I never tried it on water, but I have seen a few videos of it.

Very Cool!

Nice looking scale job. Are you setting it up to fly scale? Lower head speed, hover at mid stick, -2 to +8 pitch.

Snow skids! I flew quite a bit last winter, I even bought and modified a Radio Warm mitt. Those Raptor tail assemblies don't like the temprature change all that much. You have to tighten the belt and then loosten it back up leave it loose when you're done flying so it can expand once it's back inside.

Neat looking heli!

Im going to go as low as I can with the headspeed and still have tail authority. I set pitch at -3 +8. I haven't decided if im going to paint the main blades or not, I don't want to screw them up. The tail blades turned out ok, but I think Ill try again on another set.

The Field
I just came back from the field, with a crashed shuttle. What a nice day. I hovered one tank, practiced some back and forth for two tanks and was flying some circuits and noticed an abrupt tail movement, so I brought it down. The tail boom had slid into the frame causing the belt to loosen, so I adjusted the boom and tightened it and went to fly it again, and in a hover about twenty feet, bam the tail locked full left or right, it happened so fast I'm not sure the direction. It was spinning out of control, but I managed to keep the rotor disc fairly level, and brought it down in the tall grass to the left of myself. It has broken blades, bent all shafts, some pulled out ball linkages, cracked canopy, and broken main gear. About a half an hour ago I stopped laughing. other than this it was a great day of flying..........

The Crash
I don't know, I thought about it but, I had my antenna attached to my carbon boom support and thought that could have been the culprit. Don told me about that and I forgot about it until after the crash. You guys would have been proud of the way I got it to the ground, and would still be laughing at the result. It a shame that it wasn't filmed.
