I'm sure glad that boy looks like his mom! At least he has a chance now.
Not thats a kick in the nuts LOL .
Man, you got all the toys Lon!
I thought if you went FBL you didn't have to worry about the wind!
Wish I had all the toys.The bike was given to me from a family member that passed away.Sat in his living room 99% of its life,thats why it doesn't have any miles on it..All he did was drive it a few times and put every single bolt on it he could get his hands on..Runs awesome but I had a starting issue 2 years ago.Will fire right up push starting it but won't start by the starter button.I replaced the starter,starter relay and another part that I can't remember the name of ..Im told on a HD site that the last thing to replace thats know for the issue im having is the Alt..The Alt is gear driven off the motor and get real tight which doesn't allow the starter to turn the motor over.When we moved,we push started it and a buddy drove it to our new place,last time it was started which was 3 years ago.He said the Alt light was on the whole way so im hoping thats the issue because I bought one last year..

If I can handle riding it the way my back is,im getting a small inclosed HD trailer for the helis ..If not,it will sit another 18 years until Jacob turns 21yrs old..

FBL is better in wind but when your trying to 3D in 30mph gust,it sucks no matter what..10mph winds,no problems..

Good luck with the bike Lon, once you get it figured out it should start right up, but they are a lot like heli's. Everything starts at a hundred bucks! They can be hard on a persons back though!Bald Pilots usually wear hats!

Glad that wasn't me. I haven't even had a chance to go since I met Aaron there. I wouldn't think of flying there without it. I would however show up to let someone help finish my set up. Though I should have membership renewed by thenGlenn

I have not got it done yet
I made my own mainshaft so that it is not as low as the original I am 1/4 higher than the dfc head setup, that should help with avoiding a boom strike running 620 blades

As the WMRAF field safety officer, if your crap is not up to my strict regulations you will not fly either. No duct tape and CA fixes allowed.
Now if I can find that plane guy that electrical taped the propeller back together and left it at the field he will be banished too.

I lost the bolt to my main blade grip, so I triple wrapped it with duct tape, but once the head speed is up to 2100 on my 700, you can't tell the difference! It flies like I stole it!Bald Pilots usually wear hats!
