Finally got the Bat gasser back out
I guess I haven't flown in almost 4 months now. Too many other obligations coming up or rain, gusting winds, unforseen events....you name it.

Well, had a friend that wanted to see my heli. He has a nice house down on a local river with a huge yard and neighbors are within shouting distance. So I thought I would bring it out and let him take a look at the machine.

I figured that the machine would have to have some tweaking done for the first flight in such a long time but to my suprise the engine fired up on the third pull just like it had for many a "first starts" in the past. I let it warm up for at least a minute maybe 2 and then pushed up the throttle and she came right up into a nice smooth hover.

A few circuits to see how everything was looking and I was amazed at how smooth the heli was. I swear it wasn't this smooth the last flight I had with it before it went to the "hangar". No tweaking of needles, nothing shaking, no funny sounds. I don't remember any of my nitro helis coming back to the flightline after 4 months of sitting without having to do some sort of tweaking at least to the engine.

I almost began to worry because everything was really great. I decided to enjoy it instead of worry and did some stall turns, backwards flight, and nose in for a tank (30min) and I was back to knowing why I love flying helis.

Sometimes a little vacation away from helis is a good thing for me. I have now stirred up the urge to make time to get back out to the heli field again.

Yes I know!!!! Sunday was one of them "spur of the moment" kind of things. I haven't been able to plan anytthing lately and there are chores at the house that I have been letting slip a little.

I'm going to try to start getting out in the next few weekends....at least I hope to. Since my wife loves boats and being out on the water, I have a feeling that a great deal of my time will be spent on the local rivers and lakes with the family. Not a bad thing at all...and my children won't stop growing on me!!!!!

I can miss some flying time....that's something that I can pick back up anytime. Family only happens once

I WILL get some stick time in here and there I'm sure..

Smallplanes. I'll help you out. The only window of opportunity I have this weekend will be Saturday afternoon. The only problem is that I don't know if the wife and kids have anything "planned" for me on Saturday. My birthday is today and father's day on Sunday, they have been known to suprise me before. PM your number again and I'll give you a call Saturday morning and we'll see what is going on.Gas is Great
