Sat afternoon will have heli guys. A few should start rolling in after 12. Usually wait until plankers leave. The heaviest plank us usually lighter than a 250 size heli. But it is a workable venue.

This weekend
Hey guys,

This weekend was bad. Weather was horrible and decided to sit it out. CH47 and some others were planning to BBQ saturday but the wind was really whippin'. Was hoping for it to calm down but never did. Bummer. I hope this coming weekend mother nature will be on our side and we can get together. I was lucky and got a few flights in on friday wich was perfect weather. Lacey shot some video and we all had a good day with nothing hitting the terraferma wich is always good. If any of you get a chance check out my video. The 3G has been working pretty good and flying isn't that bad either. Iif you guys have time check it out and rate.

Take care everyone and hope to get together this coming weekend!

How was last weekend? Hope you had a good group.. I think I may be clear to visit WIC this Saturday the 22nd, before the Madera Airshow. Are you guys planning on flying at WIC, or is this the San Diego weekend?

Sunday is a day at the airshow...

I got there around 1:30. Marc and Nick, Chris and Brian were there flying Trx 450s, 600 and 700. The rest was electric airplanes including the Ghetto Bird which actually flys nice. San Diego is 21st-23rd.

Thanks for letting me know the dates.. I probably won't make the extra trip out to WIC this weekend...

If you guys are open, think about attending the Madera Airshow, it was pretty good last year...

For those going, have fun in San Diego.

Scott, Marc, Hammer and I are going to FRM on Ave 12 tomorrow. Shouldn't be any plankers on Thurs. Usually plankers come on Wed and the weekend. The above are doing the AMA guest flyer thing. I hope they join for a larger heli contingent in the club. All of us fly planks as well, but helis are primary.

FRCM
Cool,

I really like the field out there. Like Rich and I were talking about if we had a good size group of heli guys out there it might sway the opinion of flying helis all together. I'll bring my YAK 54 foamy and my 600esp. Chris repaired my canopy for my 7 but I need to order more canopy nuts. Any one know of ones that don't tear every few flights? See ya out there!

Madera Hobbies
Tom,

Wish you the best of luck with your hobby shop. It was nice to meet you and see all of the nice models you have in your store. I guess I'm flaking on going to San Diego. I am going to charge my equipment and head to Madera in an hour or 2. Hope to see you there.

Madera Airshow
Had a great time. Happy to help out and answer questions. It seemed like a very good turn out and the interest in rotory aircraft was high. Thanks for allowing me to be part of the MARC'S group. Ron has asked if I would do a night fly demo at the Castle airshow this coming weekend. Think it would be alot of fun. Hope some of you can make it!

That sounds great.. I'm planning to visit the Castle event, then have BBQ and home-made ice cream on Monday.. I LOVE the Memorial Day Holiday - last year we went and saw the Space Shuttle land at Edwards!!! Then had home-made ice cream [smile]...

Castle Event
Wow!

It was a huge turn out. RV's a 1/4 mile and 5 rows deep. Had some great flights saturday night and had so much fun went back sunday. Stripped my main gear and pinion mid flight but was still fun. My heli is currently pictured on the MARC's club site and recieved a little write up in the news letter. I look forward to future events.

Tom @ Madera Hobby and I are working on some 450's that he will be selling as ARF's and should be very good flyers out of the box. I will be testing them this week. He want's to get into helis as well and I am happy to help out. It's been very exciting to get involved in the hobby and help others with setups and getting them on the right track to become successful heli pilots.

Tom Berg,
Great jumps at the Madera airshow! Very cool and thanks for the flyer.
Some day I would love to jump out of a perfectly good airplane! Stop by the shop some time.

To everyone I haven't seen or spoke to in a while I hope all is well. Take care everyone and I'll see ya at the field.

Hey you guys need to check out Madera Hobby. If he doesn't have it ask if he'll order it. I walked in yesterday and he sold me a AR6110e for my Trex450 Pro for $44.95. It was reduced to $49.95 already, but he gave me another discount because of CenCal Helis group.

This thread has been on fire! J.K.
What has everyone been doing? Jetfire, Hash, Tim, where have you guys been? My O.S. engine finally decided to blow a hole out of the bottom end! It was still running tuff engine. Buying a new O.S. 91 HZ-R. 3G's have been working good for me just thought Id throw that in there. Madera Hobby is now stocked up on Byron Fuel! If you havent tried the Rotor Rage 30% give it a shot, I bet you will be suprised. My friend Scott ran a tank today after I told him a few times he should try it. I admit I twisted his arm a bit but he bought 3 gallons after running 1 tank!

I'm still around, not flying though...btw, is the collective on the right or left side?!? J/K!

Did you guys finally get bounced from WIC? Haven't seen or heard anyone out there in a while. We need to make a trip up to Tuolumne and see my redneck Italian buddies. Those cork soakers are a riot. I know everyone would get along great.

Aircraft Left. Aileron is aircraft right.

Did you finish your Cricket? I haven't worked on mine since you gave me the ball-bearing hookup. Mine needs the T/R gearbox taken apart, cleaned and greased up, wire T/R drive installed, cooper tailboom struts fabricated, clean up the swashplate, controls, and head. Canopy is painted yellow with blue-tinted windshield. Servos installed, but need to make up control links. I have a JR 120 gyro and found a NiCad 2000mah pack. I have new main blades to balance and cover. I wish I could find some new T/R blades. Like GMP or Yale. I have a pair of ratty old ones. I may replace with Shuttle blades. I should have it flying around Sept with my work schedule.
