Hi guys, I thought I would let you know that there is a new heli mag out in the USA called "RADIO CONTROL HELI PILOT". I have just picked up Vol 1 from Barnes and Noble, contains a variety of tests from the graupner jetcopter, Turbulence down to some wee leckies. Also got a reasonable article on how to sharpen your tic tokss (don't bother reading that Jonny).
I have not heard of any of the staff, but I live in a bit of a heli vacume at times. US ticket price is $6.99 and sub price is US$69.95 shipped to NZ. Their website is http://www.flyrc.com for those that want a gander at their site (which looks like an overarching plank outfit).

Bummer. Not that I'm that keen on print magazines (the web is more current anyway) but there are plenty that would be....

I'll bring my copy home just for you G2 - slightly used but the price is outstanding.

I am also here for another 3 weeks, so if another issue comes out I will grab that also.

Nope, no subs available yet as per my above post sadly. You have to buy individual issues for now. Bummer.

They had a sub page in the mag, but must not have their sh!t in a sock yet for subs.
I'm with you though Jas I generally resent having to pay NZ$15 plus for a hard copy mag, when avenues like this forum contain more up to date info. However I do find reading hard copy more relaxing than staring at a comp screen (after doing it all day for work).

Hope you guys are enjoying NZ winter - its really terrible here in Boston; springtime, sunny, 20+ degrees. Now I just have to work out how to get all of my heli pressies that I am thnking of buying into my luggage allowance

Dean- thanks- hand delivered, too! Such service!

My good friend Tony I. has written one article for the mag, it's a review on his Mini Titan Cobra- and might be in this issue. And a regular contributor Paul T., is a good mate and flies with Tony, and we've written each other over the years.
Paul T. has been hooked up with rc helis since I got started- back in the mid-80's- I still have the articles he wrote for a british heli mag! He used to either fly for an airline- or for the military.

Muchos gracias, senor.

Hey, AXEMAN Steve
a couple of months ago you mentioned here buying a 3DX flybarless head for your 700 and you were going to try it with the SK360 that is floating around. How is it going?? Reason I ask is that I see that Helidirect (who are producing the outrage range of helis and accessories) how have a flybarless head for the 700. So am thinking about this as a complete flybarless setup for the 700, without having to start shortening and lengthening stuff.

friggin chinese. I set my lathe stand up and hit every piece of rebar in the concrete that I could. After much swearing and jiggery pokery I got my stands and extension I made (as i am not a 4 ft 10 chinese man) all bolted down. realised today that something was wrong....there is not enough room between the back of the drive box and the wall. I measured the stands out based on the drawings and measurements given in the manual and it shows the back of the drive box level with the drip tray....but it friggin isn't is it. No it sticks out 40mm further behind the tray. Arrrggghhh!
Now I have to lift the whole lot and redrill and re-level. I'll hit every other piece of rebar no doubt. And I was going to lift the lathe into position tomorrow. If you see a chinese man give him a clip around the ear for me. Ta.

Hey Glin (whoops sorry my accent is changing), good to see you are getting closer to the start of production. But haven't the chinese started outsourcing their work to the indians now due to increasing labour costs in China?

dunno dean but I almost have the lathe mount back all levelled which took most of this afternoon after drilling more holes in my floor

I am going to have a serious amount of leave coming up soon as we are cutting capacity and my hours have dropped to 45 flying hours a month. We have been told to take backlog leave or we will be allocated it. I looked on the rc heli's nz site to see upcoming events and there is almost nothing. I have to take 29 days backlog leave as well as my planned week in september and two weeks over christmas as well as 1 week in March so I will be home a lot in the coming months. time to catch up on everything. (and use the lathe!)

got back from Tahiti this morning. Got a right royal pasting from two colliding jetstreams and moderate to severe Clear air turbulence that couldn't be avoided even though we went 340 nm north on the way home.
Had quite a few pax retasting their lunch To tell you the truth I felt a bit yuk after a few hours of it. Hate it when you have to earn the money

the recession still bites.
Beaut day down here but too tired to go fly.

nut out

Yo G- sorry you couldn't make it to R-town, you were missed.

About that leave you need to take- I think Jason and a couple others may be looking into a heli event just like last week- with maybe better weather- for the 3rd weekend on October. Up in the Big Smoke, no less.

All dates and locations need to be firmed up and all that- but in case that helps.....

Later- G2

Hey Dean
Hi Dean,

I got the 3DX head, but havn't got the SK360 so haven't done the Fbarless conversion yet.

I got the GForce adjustable clutch block and the KDE thrusted main bearing blocks to play with. Bling Bling!

Eyeing up the Wren44 heli-turbine that has finally been released to production 8 shaft horsepower with an OS91 bolt pattern with the Trex700 having an all-up flying weight of 6kgs.

Sorry couldn't make RVegas - 70hrs work last week - pays for the toys though

Glenn - stay away from the Atlantic and those CBs.....

Are your new lathes measurements in "mirrimetres"!?

Jason - Got those pamphlets for North Shore ready to hand out at the traffic lights in Kumeu!?

Cheers,

Steve.

Steve, I think his name is Grenn now lol

Hey Graeme, geuss who has a 2.3M Yak in his shop
I am going to need to clean out the hangar a bit now. I sold the scale 500E and have got someone to buy the 100X Funtana, will sell the 90 Funtana as well as my other 600E I think. Might sell the 450 scale 500E as well.

If all goes well I will start building the UH1-Y scale machine next week, it doesn't look as big as I thought it would but I recon it will look the part when it is finished. Heaven forbid I might even put Raptor mechanoics in it, I am not as rich as Grenn and don't have a machine shop to make all the bits to fit Compass mecs in it. I will make it electric though, I hate nitro scale helis they just sound all wrong and oil gets everywhere.

Life is like a bath, the longer you stay in it the more wrinkled you get.
