I drove down today to pickup the bearings I ordered 10 days ago and they didn't have them and never bothered to call. they are drop shipping no charge to me and I'll receive them tomorrow. Can't fly. Other employees came to work sick and gave it to me.
I do want to fly next time at Madera or Fresno. Will call.

Sick
Thats a bummer Rich. If I hear someone sneezing or coughing I get away quickly. Unfortunatly you cannot get away at 36000 feet. Hope you feel better. Going FBL with my 600. Have some equipment on ebay hope it sells high enough to buy another system.

I will try to have my Synergy ready the next time I fly. Need to fly the snot out of it before it becomes a fossil. Some parts are hard to get or I see call for availablity which mean we can back order. Preordered a Rave 90 nitro with FB and Total G. If I want to later convert to FBL, it is a little bag of parts like Curtis describes. I think it is like 3 pieces. Got everything lined up or bought except engine. I think I'll go with a YS.91 SR and Hatori again. I just like the way it runs.

You guys want to plan on a summertime good time heli flyers event? Just the local guys from Madera, Fresno, and Visalia flying and camping and BBQ Primevial Fun Fly? No? Yes?

Just checking what the guys want to do. If no interest, then that's the way it is.

Yeah BABY!! Dats what I'm talking about. Funny that you mention it because I was about to ask when your busting that thing out Rich. I've penciled in this coming Saturday on my calendar for WIC even if its just for a couple of hours. Hope you can show up then. The Heli Flyers event idea sounds good. I'm all for it. Man.. That Rave 90 will be SICK!! I'm jelouse.. Also, keep an ear open for me on anyone local that has a 9303 they want to get rid of or possibly trade for something I have. I want to step up to an 8V system and considering going with the 7100 route rather than separate regulator with my Futaba system. Just tossing around ideas. Thanx

I have to work thru the 2nd, but off thru Saturday the 6th. I'll have it ready. Huey in Clovis has a couple of 9303s he isn't using. mcHammer knows him too. I can ask if you want. TX only? He recently changed radios.
I figure the local BBQ funfly should be in May before the heat and after it's dried out a little.

Count me in. Yeah... if you can ask for me I'd appreciate it. Just PM me when you find out. I'll snag one from him for the right price or some kind of deal. I'm hoping with a 7100 RX and no servos but if he has just a simple 9ch RX thats fine too. Gotcha on the 6th. I've been itching too see the N9. And.. of course the Rave, when you get it.

How was the flying at WIC today? Couldn't get my N9 ready due to snow and power outage. I have swap out my main blade grips and T/R hub before I can fly it. It was just too cold in the house without heat and I didn't want to build a fire in my fireplace and fix it by candlelite like Lincoln. Should have it done for next Sat. Sorry jetfire.

I didn't go cause no one answered me so i just flew at the school close to here. but i broke the antenna and pulled the wire off of the TX board on my DX6i. i tried to solder it (I'm pretty handy with a soldering iron.) but my bird just fell out of the sky today due to a signal loss. ( about 3 feet off the ground) no damage to the bird as i preformed my first auto rotate. but i need a new TX board and antenna for my TX. If anyone has a broken one that has parts in it i would be willing to buy them.Catch It and See What It Eats!!!!

Sorry jetfire.
No problem bud. Don't sweat it. Too bad you couldn't make it. Not sure if I'll make it next Sat, but I will definitely try. I lost the last two weekends trying too dial in my Spartan so I had to release it today and got to ballsy dropping it too low doing tic tocs and ended up digging a trench.. LoL. Minor repairs, and not sure if I'll get a set of main blades by next weekend. Marc was tearing it up with his FBL 700.

Chbrjade,

You should of went. Usually, there is stragglers there at WIC on Saturdays but never get to RR to post it. Hope you get your Rappy situated. Marc and I was there for a couple of hours.

WIC 3-7-10
Hey guys,

Had alot of fun yesterday and am going back out to WIC this morning. Jetfire, I went and bought the little Sukhoi and HT price matched 79.00. I installed a MSR motor in it and put some ballast in the tail. Going to fly my 1st plank this morning. I did try it yesterday after returning to wic. Flys great! loops, roles, inverted, knife edges, I have never flown planes but if you can fly helis you sure as heck can fly a plane. Its allot of fun. Its the Park Zone Sukhoi BNF, I also flew my MSR yesterday and I had not realized that some people have never seen them fly, I recommend the MSR highly to help with your heli skills, its fast fun and durable.

So far the 3G has worked great. I am very happy with the system. Heli flys pretty good but I am getting some pretty baad boom flex when I really start to hammer on it. I need a 20 dollar boom brace and mayby go back to the CF boom.

Jetfire, I will bring those blades with me if you want them I'll sell em for 80.

I hope to see some of you out there.
