Helicopter rides at fun fly
To All Heli Fliers:
It may be a possibility for me to bring my helicopter in to do rides. But a lot depends on my flight schedule. It's all in the planning stages right now. Cost would be $35-$45 per person for 5 minutes depending on which helicopter I have. I currently am using the R-22 but am in the process of looking to buying a Schweizer 300C.

A real Chopper ride?
I'm IN! Flew in the Air Force every day faster then the speed of sound (F15). But never in a full scale chopper.

Counting the days.
I have the Pantera BBC proto type ready to fly. This is only one of three on the planet. Production should start soon.
With all the snow, stick time has been indoors with the 400.
Perry, Did you find the Heli Bowling ball? Let me know if we need to make another.

Does the needle valve seal well? Every TT engine I've worked on has sucked air around the main needle valve. It sounds like the engine is running pretty strong for the people that are talking about it.

What hobby shops will be attending? Last year http://www.RChobbySports.com was there. They also now have Synergy parts, Mikado Logo parts, and Align parts. We need someone to save the day!

Also will there be any tall grass to practice cutting grass while doing tictoks on the deck?

A friend I used to fly with called it a disease. We all have it and I’m afraid it’s terminal.
Well I put 6 more tanks on the red line this afternoon. It does pull harder than the os BUT… There is a price. Every thing is a compromise. The os sounds like music to me in flight no matter how I load it or unload it.

The tt carb is junk compared to the os... but it is tunable. It still hear it going lean and rich through the maneuvers but I did get it to make good power and not get hot.I think I like it so far???
The idle is all over the place. Just some thoughts on a new toy

Sam: I don't know what shops are coming. If it’s the same guy as last year he was cool. Ask him

The last guy was cool. I got some killer deals from him. To bad he showed up on the last day.
I got the scale ship on the bench for the fun fly. She had some damage with the move to the new cave. I hope to test hop the BBC this weekend so it's tuned up for the fun fly.
Still looking for a night blade plug to light up the suckers.
Counting the days till the FF.

Thought I'd be packing this weekend, damn weather. I was looking forward to a heli gathering. Oh well, 4 weeks isn't too bad.

Mark, Look forward to seeing the Avro. Looks like a cool heli.
Sounds like it will be June before I get my new heli, with any luck at all I'll the 700 flying for Brooks.
