Make that 5 to 1 chance I will be there. If there are any non-member helicopter Pilots I invite you to come and fly as my guess

RC Heli Mike
Let me know if you need me to meet you at the field and show you how if you need help, it only takes 5-10 minutes tops, just have to make sure you have a fully charged battery.
Thanks Mike, I think I have it figured out and if not I'm going to fly on Sat. I think Dan is hinting to you to come out and fly

Steve, I should be there, starting to charge batteries already!

BTW Mike, the link you provided helped me set the gov. I hope I did it correctly but it only took me about 10 mins.

Ok guys, maybe a silly question but...... I changed my HW ESC to store gov. Then took it out and spooled it up at 0' pitch, 50% throttle for 20 seconds. Then unplugged the battery. How do I know if it stored correctly?

Go into your transmitter and set up your idle up modes, for example set normal to 75 all the way across, set idle up 1 to 85 all the way across and set idle up 2 to 100 all the way across, take the heli out and start in normal and then switch to idle up 2 and you should here the headspeed get faster and then bump up to 3 and should be even faster ( full ) .

When you set it up did you make sure your throttle curve was linear ? Just double checking as that will screw it up if not.

It was linear but all at 50%, not linear from 0-100. But that is what the video said to do. If it's not right I'll figure it out at the field today.

You all didn't miss anything. The wind was so bad no one was flying, ended up spending some time with the kids at Walter's watching car and truck races.

LOL..Yeah, your right. I was flying in the front yard the other day and it was like the opening scene from Jurassic Park!

Anybody going to fly helis at the Skyhawks 'Labor Day' fly-in? (I can't, my old Raptor is broken). They usually get a pretty good crowd (weather permitting).

Did anybody make it to Skyhawks? I was hoping to go but had a family get together I needed to go to.

I've been flying almost every day but haven't been to the field in a few weeks. School started for the kids and it's CRAZY!!

I'm gone for the next two weekends but hoping we can get together and get some fall flying in!!
