Is anyone going to B-ham? I am getting really fired up for it. I am going to be at the Midwest Sundowners event also.

I keep tearing stuff up lately. LOL Poor old Vibe ate some mud Friday. LOL Me and Bill are trying to plant some heli parts in that field so that when the wetaher gets nice maybe some new parts will sprout up! I will let you all know how that works out for us.

If you haven't already done so, I would seriously recommend that you read the sticky's in the HeliFr3ak 3G Forum... Better to be safe than sorry with those new big birds...

Hey Sonny what did Brandon think of the bird for being so cheap?
Sweet looking bird Steve. Looks like you'll be needing that fuel truck this year.

Carpe Diem!!!

He Liked it! It was the first time he'd tried one, and he was pretty impressed, so was another MA pilot that was there.
Did you get a chance to fly over the weekend?
I did find out that with an OS motor, we should have a header tank.

Speedvision I read the thread. I plan on staying with the stock wiring. I'm not convinced there is a problem with the wiring. Battery capacity maybe. I am using a A123 3000 m.

Always best to make an informed decision I always say. Make sure to do some pitch pump tests on the bench to help insure the power system is up to snuff...

I do agree with Radar on this the wiring is good enough I have seen it fly already many times without problems I did however make a few changes that did not require adding any wires just moving them around in the connectors between the 3g and receiver,it works out well and takes most of the load off the single wire for the "just in case" under heavy loads

More info for the 3g
Considering were taking out 400-450mah per 8 min flight (give or take )that would equate to around 1 amp average.

Well I have a story to tell of my experience tonight, flying my 30. It almost did not turn out to be a successful night of flying. Had a little trouble on the 1st flight setting up gyro gain and tuning motor for a tail wag that I had but Chris and I got that handled. Now for the interesting part which some or none of you will believe but I have a witeness and that would be Chris. I was nearing the end of my flight so here I was inverted and punched out inverted and climbed to a good auto height, at least what I that was going to be a good auto height. I reach my altitude and hit throttle hold still inverted and down came the heli (plan at this point is do roll out upright). Uh oh, held negitive for to long, the blades slow down and then come to a stop, fold up and hit the tail boom while still inverted. We both at that time thought it was over and we were going to be picking up peices, (thats right,thought we were going to be picking up pieces). At that instance there was no tme for panic but to only watch the heli come down, blades folded,heading right for mother earth. Got the heli up right (well I think it was me that got it upright) and came out of throttle hold and the blades spun up to idle 2 head speed and flew it back to me and put it away. I would say that flying at a church does do wonders for those who do stupid things when flying.
