Bell 47 GIII Robinson R22
After an on site engine change, the R22 engine ran as it did for it's previous owner, 2 full tanks no problems, new owner changed back to his original oil/petrol mix and the engine started playing up
It seems the Zenoah 230 did not like the 50-1 mix
We normally fly with 66ml to 5000ml(edit)

The newly rebuilt Bell 47's new Zenoah, is now run in

Both heli's flew faultlessly all afternoon, with the higher temperatures not seeming to effect either helicopters

You can see why we favour yellow livery, at distance it is easy to see

Not so much flying
Chopper Jockey is now at the finishing stages of a tail rebuild after a JetCat tail output shaft snapped (all JetCat repair work and upgrades free of charge), and he had a tail strike at the end of his blind auto landing
He decided to change the paint scheme to the Bristow livery
Took me an age to mix the colours for the Bristow decals
For me it is the small details that count
Thanks to all the others in our group who use Chopper Jockey's facilities, quite a few wet/windy Saturday afternoons were spent removing the old 2 pack paint

Peter, I only use 50-1 Honda HP-2 synthetic and had great luck with it. In fact I run the same oil in all my 2 stroke engines. I also use nothing but NGK plugs and have great success . WP

Zenoah G320RC
First flights with the new G320RC in my Alouette II

The Last engine was a Hanson tuned Zenoah, this simple wore out with use
As the G320RC was released last year desided to give it a try

Early signs are promising, will have a better idea after a gallon or so of fuel

Chopper Jockey, back from a shoot with his full size, tried to sneak up through the trees

This weekend is a forces display, being a garrison town all the services are represented, this full size just dropped vertically, some thing else to watch

Tea break

Just 2 R22's and the Bell47 flew today there was another R22 in the back of my van

Tavvy Phil practicing precision landings

The 2 R22's, the Red one is the latest addition to my fleet

Charmouth
This year, the first event of the flying year, was a weekend of 4 seasons, I had snow on my way home
Although a bit windy, quite a few of the scale flyers managed a flight
The Sea king is fitted with a Wren 44, in 700/800 mechanics
The Ecureuil, (Squirrel) is the latest to my fleet, electric, used to be turbine, I may go back to the Jackadofsky, now I have managed to get it flying better
