Got 7 flights in today with 3 OK videos.The first 2 videos I velcroed my camcorder to my hat LOL and the 3rd someone (not too good ) recorded for me .Im still running both motors rich and no gov on the 90 3D yet .Im thinking about taking the gov off the R70 and putting it on the R90.Some how I managed to screw my camcorder setting up because the focus kept going out every now and then,tomorrow is another nice day .

What headspeeds are you running? They sound low, but your helis seem to still have plenty of power. (collective management?)

Just curious, is there a cure for this addiction?

My R60V2 (white canopy) has a OS70 with Hatori SB-70 pipe.That one has a gov set at 1800 in idleup-1 and shes running pretty rich (fuel spits out the exaust lol)..The 90 3D has a modded OS 91 SX-H C-Spec with cline carb reg and Viperhead,Its also running pi$$ rich with no gov.I know im not over 1800rpm's with it.Ive been flying for 2 years now and im good with my collective management but its not perfect.My 90 makes more power than it does in that video,last 3 times I took it out I noticed she was down on power and took out 3 glow plugs.Yesterday it had a loud rattle so I ripped it apart to see if anything was loose and nothing was so I took the motor apart.The rear bearing was rusted and the inside race was pitted pretty bad so I tossed all my mods on my new/extra OS 91SX-H C-Spec and bought 2 new rear bearings today.Sorry for babbling but I really like this motor and once I get someone to tach it for me when I put the gov on,I think she'll make just as much if not,a little more power than a YS 91SR .I'll post pics of the shot bearing in a min,you can really hear it humming when it gos by in the video..

The other motor is in and I said screw it and hooked the Revmax up,did a test flight and had a ear to ear smile .Running a tad bit lower headspeed than in the video (with good bearings lol) and this thing is a freak,did a bunch of tail down/side to side tictocs and its unbogable .I knew this motor would make awesome power but OMG wait for the videos tomorrow .Heres the crap bearing and I bought another to change the one in my OS 70SZ-H while im working on them.Rest of the motor looks as good as new .

FlaG8r and holzback,don't laugh at me LOL.Might look stupid but it works haha,I need to remember I can't zoom out .It doesn't slide and its not heavy,works when no one is around .

I don't think anyone can come close to acting like that guy.If im right,hes the one thats pro at EVERYTHING that has to do with helis?If you did a new move,he can do it better or show you at his flight school haha.

Not sure why but for some reason I love posting videos of my flying,think I have 65-70 videos on youtube from last year.I really wish more people would make videos to post,watching the pros fly is awesome but gets boring after a while.Watching normal (if thats what we are haha) people fly and making progress never gets boring.I guess I like sharing my progress with everyone and wish more would do the same.O-yeah,just replaced the bearing in my OS 70SZ-H too and the motor looks good as new .
