Thanks Kevin! A big gasser is the only way to go, and I'm happy to say that you were the reason I got into gassers and not big electrics. I was bit by the gas bug the first time I seen that orange Helibug in the air.

Right now
Sitting pretty at 861 flights to date. Larry just showed up, we'll be flying daily for the next week or so. I can smell 900 flights will fall soon. We may be able to celebrate 1000 in Virginia in October

Holy crap!! 861 flights??!!?!?!!!!!!!!!!!! Whats the most flights from an engine before a rebuild was necessary?? Curious how many hours it was or days or months of constant run time it had.

Setup is everything, All my heli's can fly far better than I can pilot them

861 flights
Between 3 helis (and a few on other peopl's helis) not all on 1 heli.

However, this whiplash is still running with the original engine from last September, will be a year old on 9/20. 418 flights to date.

900 will be up up, is the way to go I think.
I will paypal you funds for a gallon of a gas, just in good spirit, when you hit that monumental 1000.

Fun last two days at the field, today nothing but blue skies! Those Gassers looked great up there today, no more electrics for me.

Saw some amazing piloting today at the field, Torque making an inverted pass. Engine quit and flipped back upright and autoed in for a nice landing.

Unless my math is wrong,,

418 flights at 10 minutes a flight is 69.6 hours of engine run time.
418 flights at 15 minutes a flight is 104.5 hours of engine run time!!!!

Good luck getting anywhere near that with any nitro engine!!
Any idea how many flight hours of run time before an engine rebuild Raja??

Setup is everything, All my heli's can fly far better than I can pilot them

So far
491 flights on the whiplash and the engine was never rebuilt. Average about 18 minutes run time per flight, right at 147 hours now getting close to 150!

A nitro engine usually lasts 150-200 flights, not hours...
