Today a few of us from our club (ARA), flew all day at a local country fair. It's a massive local weekend-long event, normally 10k people across the weekend in attendance, and we are asked to put on a show, both fixed wing and Heli's. Today was a bit blowy, and overcast til about 2:30, but had a great time none-the-less. I think I had around 15 flights in total, and here is a video of one of those flights, on the Trex 700 turbine.

Wow, that's pretty good power! But I'm thinking the bearings in the turbine engine must be taking a beating while spinning approximately 100,000RPM. I'm thinking the massive gyroscopic forces are putting out quite a resistance on the yaw and elevator axes. Maybe I'm wrong? IMO, Unlike model jets, helicopters twist and flip much more violently, jarring the tubine bearings.

185k rpm actually And no, Wren still rate it at a 20-40hr service interval. The Synergy N9 we have is up to 15 hours odd I think, and is just going in for its first service after almost 3 years faultless service
