The second one could also be the person who"s model went up in flames and another model he flew where the tail servo was not set up ???? or the model that thought it was a lawn dart.

Thanks to all who made it yet another great weekend, i have only missed one event in the last 8 years or so and they keep getting better and more fun. Thanks to the sponsors and thanks to Ben for the great prize of the X5 heli i really enjoyed flying your heli's cheers.

Next year im going to get takaway for dinner and go home and watch a movie it will be quicker.

What caused it? You may have faulty bec. Power it up and thrash the sticks around and see if the power cuts out.

Wasn't the best weekend for cranking out flights with my 7HV - Guess we can chuck this in with the Whangarei night flight lol

Still, I had the perfect weekend hanging out with all the crew - Thank you to all the pilots who traveled to this event - It seems 3D flying is in good hands.
Also thank you to the organizers and sponsors.

A big thanks to Cheye and the Wellington crew. Brilliant hospitality. Well worth the drive from Auckland. Once Peter and I unpacked the car, I couldnt believe how much stuff we had. 7 helis in the car

Thanks to the sponsors as well - awesome to get the support.

Certainly looking forward to the next event.

Cheers

in the tail rotor. there was retaining compound all threw the bearing. I got one of the bad batch. New set sorted the problem. The glue only made the belt jump didn't cause the tail not to lock. http://www.helifreak.com/showthread.php?t=474053
