Brian you really have to ask that. That ground is always wet and with record amounts of rain the last two weeks you can be assured that it is a swamp back there.

Carpe Diem!!!

The road should be ok , its the parking lot and the field that will be water soaked, we could fly off the road if you want to go out there now.

Why is it that when the temps get above 50 the wind blows??? Crap!
Oh well I guess it will dry up the field and parking lot! I see that there is only 2 days now in the long range forecast in the 70's next week.

No and the thing is, this morning I put another little piece of tubing around that one to prevent it from coming off! Not sure if I burnt the piston or not but I ordered one and it will be here tomorrow.

Hey Sonny what does a lean motor sound like. Come all you electric fan boys. Can't believe you haven't chimed in on this.

I'm sick of fighting. Not worth the energy. Everybody knows that electric is the way to go unless you just like tinkering with those stupid nitro engines. If your retired its fine but I don't see a reason on Gods green earth why you would ever want to mess with those demon machines. I will still say the most bad ass thing about electric heli's is the sound of the blades ripping through the air instead of a god d@*n weed whacker sound on steroids!!!!!! Is that the electric fanboy response you were looking for?????

I'm getting up the ambition to change out motors and I should be in the air before too long.

Looks like I will be sending another motor in for the CGB. Lots of tiny metallic dust in the motor! Its got to be in the bearing as well, might as well not even guess at it, its gunna cause problems, that was a brand new piston in that thing too from the looks of it!

ROFL Jason. That is a good one. Looks like you must have written that out a few times to get the emotion in that post. I will remember that as I am watching you try to do the fire dance to stomp out your raging inferno when your esc lights up.

Carpe Diem!!!

Sonny,

All my beastx stuff is at the latest rev. Yes I have I will be a beast fan boy like the rest of you now. I actually only have one microbeast that I put on the frankenblade and its at 3.0.12.

I updated all three of my AR7200Xs to whatever their form of specialty firmware is. The AR7200Xs show as 3.1.0

All need full setup done just to be sure things are alright.

Remember...runways are for models and wings are for fairies.
