What a great fun fly Wayne and the team put on, primo weather, heaps of flying, had a great time. Will be back for the next one, hopefuly with my own heli/ heli's, then i can fly a bit harder and not worry to much about the ground eating them up.
Also big thanks to Wayne and Julie for a place to crash. Cheers.

Matt.

Rotorua, Ohakea Jets & Fury55
A bit late but just wanting to say thanks to Stu, Wayne & Julie for their hospitality last weekend and to Kevin for supporting it. I love going to the Rotorua field as the models with a smoke trail against the bush background looks fantastic.
Actually Rotorua was the first field I ever saw inverted flight by Bruce McKay (switched!!) way back about 1995

Congratulations to the anonymous Wellingtoninan who was getting married last Sunday (at least that's what we told the strippers) and also thanks to DaveB for playing chauffeur - it saved walking 5kms like Kevin & Rayman had to do

I mentioned to a few of you that we are having a jet event this weekend at Ohakea - however just to let you know that it has been postponed as it was to be hosted on base by 3SQDN. Unfortunatley with the tragic Iriquois accident on ANZAC day the AirForce have had more important things to do than worry about our toy aeroplanes. The sole surviving member of the accident was the person Rene was dealing with to coordinate our access. We were to store our planes overnight in 3SQDNs hangar and were to get the behind-the-scenes guided tour. Bugger.

After seeing and flying Gavin Broadbents Fury55 at the 3D event I had to get one It arrived last Friday just before the Rotorua event. It's not a 5 minute build, but no where near as complicated as previous MA models I've built. Should be ready to maiden this weekend weather permitting.

Cheers,

Steve

As long as you know Steve it is the indian not the arrow that is reposable for 90% of the flying.

I thought a 14MZ would help me but so far not so much LOL

Oi- none of that now!!!
Steve- come on bud- no trash talkin' about the Cal5's, ok?

If anyone wants to give one away- I'll give it a good home with the rest of mine- the Breitling, the 109, the Twinstar and the rest of them.

ps- feel free to bad mouth Futaba- that's fine with me......

I just saw on discovery a research project in the states developing a mini electric heli camera ship for S&R and post disaster damage surveying. It had the exact same gimbal design as that camera heli at the welly fun fly except it was made of carbon fibre not alloy.

I'm thinking a Honey Bee for you Steve LOL.

I don't need a new heli to fly good, what I need is new hands and brain, perhaps new eye balls wouldn't hurt either.

Some super creative flights from BHam just posted guys:
https://rc.runryder.com/rrTV-Photo/funflies/BHAM2010/

In particular check out the flights from Jamie R and Jared G. VERY creative transitions and flying styles. TOTAL control throughout each maneuver and no 'weak sides' exhibited. Rolling circles both directions etc. Very very nice.

It will wake up your flight envelope to watch some of these pros in action...my flying gets kind of stale so I have to watch these guys to get some new ideas as to what to work on (it all needs work frankly, lol)...

This time next week I will be having a beer with Curtis, will be good to see if the grandfather of 3D can mix it up with the young play station generation.

Nothing. Bolt her up tight and then fly it until hot, land and tighten a bit more. Done. I have NEVER used Locktite on Muffler bolts.

Loctite on mufflers
As Jason says - heat is actually what you use to undo loctite so an exhaust does that for you accidentally

Maidened my Fury55 today - 9 flights.
Too much fun with a 55 engine in it and the new Funtech B320

Unfortunately it shows up every flaw in my dumb-thumb lack of precision manoevures so I'm running out of excuses

Cheers,

Steve.

The 55 is wasted on my flying but it does at least go some way to close the power gap between nitro and electric
