No I have not been out to the field for about 2 weeks. I would expect that the road would be ok but the parking area will probabally be soaked especially if we get all the rain they are talking for this week.

Yep I've been dreading getting treatment, but now I guess I might as well get it over with and hopefully feel better!

Hey Aaron, will the 700 have intermittent tail kicks with the YS91 when the needles aren't tuned yet? My needles were closed when I first went to start it, then I set it to factory settings to start, but was a bit nervous with the tail kick so I didn't hover too much in fact it scared me, still having nightmares from the end of last season with the tail problems with one of my other heli's. I slamed back down and broke the damned landing gear and scuffed up the blades on the side walk!!

The way they are inflating the $ you might as well get yours before they get it
Glad you said fuel and not gasoline. Going to cost that much to drive over and back unless you all jump in Chris's loaner.

The trunk is big enough to fit a 90 in there. Huge trunk. They have not even worked on the trailblazer yet. The guy told us tonight they just got the hood for it today. Looks like it will be close to another week before it is done. And no I have not flown the Frenzy yet. Maybe I will give it a swing Friday after work sometime.

Carpe Diem!!!

Only 1 90 in the trunk? How's the gas mileage? 4.17 a gallon, geez that's a bunch of crap! People will be taking a serious look at cars with better fuel economy. Hope fully the weather will change for the better real soon, and dry up, so we can go to the field for fun, flyin and BBQ!!!

Our trips to fly will have to become longer events to make it worth the trip. I did get 4 flights on the 500 yesterday and it was easier on the batteries I think the gear mesh was a little tight 4.5 minutes and consumed 1900 mah so not to bad

Yikes, I don't know how many mAH batteries you got there, but I hope they aren't no 2200's. That would be a lot! Did you recalibrate the throttle?
