I am going to work on my sunburn tomorrow at the field.

Received the ok from the club to bring the BBQ.
It is my old one that is in fair shape. Sorry I am not bringing the new one.
I will give it a quick scraping. Don't want to remove all the seasoning. I should have it down on site by friday. Will post if it does not happen.

As usual I had a good time at the field.

BBQ Grill Update
It looks like I will not be able to get the grill down there this weekend. When I was cleaning the inside I found that most of that charbroiled goodness had become the burner. I have allready ordered the replacement parts. Barring any availability issues we should be back in buisness for next weekend.

+1 with Marc28

Remember we all have a common interest, to fly RC aircraft. Be it fixed wing or rotary wing. The segregation of either type is never good for a club. It would do us all good every once and a while to take a walk or drive over to the fixed wing side and say hello. There is a huge amount of experience and talent there as well as a good bunch of guy's.
Remember weiner Wednesday is in effect.

We are very fortunate to have such a great Club and flying site.

My comments about Warwick will be presented in the proper forum and this is not it. I was also at Warwick as a club member not only a Heli pilot. I had offered my service to videotape some of the days events. If I had a chance to fly it would be considered a plus.

This is a RC CLUB. Yes our common interest is flying RC aircraft. But we are also there to help each other have a safe and good time.

I will be the first to admit that I have no smackdown skills. I may eventually get there in due time.

Remember this is a club not a pay to fly site.

I wish not to put this forum in danger of being closed. Therefor I have nothing further to say.

How is the one way/ autorotation bearing in the main gear hub? You should be able to rotate the main gear one way with out having the head turn, the other direction should lock up and rotate the head.

Yes on the descent you should have some negative pitch to convert the descent into rotor energy. Too much and the rate of descent is to great and not enough and you may not have enough energy for lift when you apply positive pitch at the end.

Sorry to hear about the event.

I just picked TT because I figured Ahmed liked TT. I would go either Avant Aurora, or Kasama.
Saw some Aurora's at the LI fun fly. Looked like a solid heli.

I am still holding out for the Logo 700.

Well with the heat we have been having the past few weekends I have been sweating out most of my fluids so a bathroom break was not needed.
But a porta john is a valid question. I will ask the powers to be.

BTW: the Free Donated BBQ has had a new burner and grill installed. I will have it on site tomorrow after I pick up a tank of gas.

Had a good time as well. Probably one of the cooler spots in NY with the nice breeze blowing. Nice to see Saul out flying again. I think all went well considering the variable breeze we had. It was nice to see that Scott did not come un-glued today (see previous posts by scott)
Scott adds new meaning to a pilot becoming attached to his heli (sorry Scott I could not resist)

Here are some pictures from the day:

To those of you flying Sunday. Do you feel like hot lunch again? I was thinking of making a batch of sausage, peppers and onions. We could have them on rolls. If you are interested let me know so I know how much to buy and cook up.

I have phoenix as well.
I gave both heli sides a fresh cut.
Just finished the sausage and peppers. Should be enough for about 8-10 healthy sandwiches. Or as healthy as sausages and peppers can be.
I will see everyone tomorrow.

Yes it was hot on the field but the breeze helped alot.

Almost did not go to cut the grass. I looked out side and the sun was shining on my outside thermometer and it read 125 degrees F.

Police Station?

As far as Phoenix sim is concerned lets all talk tomorrow but here is just a suggestion for those of us that have Phoenix. When ever one of us is practicing and feels like flying with othe club members just create a session named "RCRCC" with a common password that we can agree upon tomorrow. I think our flying skills can all improve at a faster rate if we are sim-ing with others.

BTW I also practice with Real flight and Heli-X as well.

Both are excellent sims.I like that phoenix has free updates. I originally whent with real flight because it had the MA Furion 450. Then went to phoenix because it had a mikado 500. Both required some tweaking to get the models more accurate. The latest one I have tried is Heli-X, this has a mikado 600 FBL model. This feels to be the closest to my actual sim. It also has the ability to import the V-bar file from my actual heli and apply it to the sim model.

They all have their specific features but provide the basics of learning stick input muscle memory.

Phoenix seems to be the easiest to join or create online sessions. Never had an issue unless the phoenix server was down.

I remember down loading a seperate utility you could run in the background. Don't remember the name, will check when I get home. I think phoenix has set up a slot on their server. Their audio quality was much better. Don't know how much resources it takes from phoenix but would also depend on the users machine.

Some night we should experiment.

You are welcome for the Sausage and peppers.

Yes the HDMI port should work just fine. Start with the computer screen set for 1080. If it does not mimic correctly then switch the computer to a resolution that has 720. Also make sure the tv is set for its pixel for pixel mode or pure mode (most other modes have a 4-7% overscan) causing you to not see the edges as you see them on the computer monitor.
There may also be a game mode. This is the one to use with the sim as it disables most of the movie processing enhancements and reduces the lag time between stick input and video response.

Consider the extinguisher raised.
Is the car all right?
I have seen several pictures of lipo mishaps taking out cars and even almost an entire house. Lipo sacks are cheap insurance in IMO to contain a lipo flare up.

Water could be used but would have to be a significant amount not only to smother the cells but to also cool the reaction. A class D fire extinguisher is the recommended tool for lithium based fires. I will check the class rating of the fire extinguisher at the site.

Hope all are OK.

Ahmed,

"If anyone lost a cable at the field today, I have it. Deans on one side, 4mm in the other side."

I think that may belong to Gena. He asked to borrow my deans to 4mm charging cable today.

Lipo safety
As all our heli's have a Lipo battery pack for electronics power or main power.

Please exercise caution when charging, do not charge in or on you vehicle in case of Lipo cell failure. If charging at home, charge outside if possible or keep the charging batteries in a lipo bag near a door so if they fail you can get them outside easily.
Lipo bag:
http://www.readyheli.com/EDGE-Lipo-...g-_p_36739.html

Here is some interesting info on energizer Lipo's but applies to other batteries using lipo chemistry.

Be sure to set up safety limits correctly on your charger. For example if you have a 2000mah lipo battery pack. You should not be discharging it beyond 80% of its capacity. So to recharge the battery fully should not require any more than 1600mah. If your charger is charging at a 1C rate (2amps(2000ma), to put back 1600ma should take about 48 minutes. Setting your charger timer cutoff to 50-55 minutes and the current capacity cutoff to 1800ma should prevent the charger from causing overcharging failure should the automatic cutoffs fail.

All in all Lipo's are a safe power source. But in our applications of high discharge cycles and possible vibrations we are asking them to give us alot.

Gary,
I have seen some clubs that have a large electric population use several deep cycle batteries connected to a solar panel and inverter setup. This gives you the 12volt DC and also 110ac for our hobby needs. Of course none of this comes cheap. Also we need the ok from the site as well. As you know storage structures are an issue.
Baby steps, we will get here as a club.

In the meantime all are welcome to tap my portable power source if needed.

I was concerned about your charging method of having the charger and battery sitting up under the hood of the van. I have seen guy's on the plane side do this as well. But at least you parked closest to the fire extinguisher.

As far as a group charging solution we to consider how far do we want to go with this. Are we looking for a solution to just charge up a 2S lipo of LiFe pack or do we want to be able to charge the larger 6S-12S 5000ma packs as well.

I myself use this as a field charging option.
http://www.northerntool.com/shop/to...13775_200313775

For my current use it gets me through the day on one charge. The most I have done with it so far was 4 recharges on my 10S 4200ma packs and 2 recharges on a club members 6S 4000ma pack. When I returned home it was able to get through half a charge before the charger tripped on low input voltage. If i needed to I could always jumper cable it to the car and put a quick charge back into it.

I am waiting to see what new high current chargers with dual outputs might be coming out. I think in the future I may have to go the Honda 2KW EU generator into my current 40 amp power supply to satisfy the future chargers.

Or i might just throw in the towel and go nitro.

Bobby, Which flybarless unit?
From what I hear from the pilots that do fly intense 3D they feel a disconnection from the heli. Burt Kammerer did mention that the new release 5.0 of the V-Bar was better but still feels in general that FBL technology is not quite there yet. He does like it when he flies smoother style flying but feels more connected when he flies stick banging style on a fly barred heli.

As a beginner I like the feel of the FBL unit and always have the option via software to make the Heli more reactive. How close would it come to a Fly barred version of the same heli with the settings turned up to 3D mode I cannot say. As I don't have the skill set to make that determination at this time.

Give it a try. You can always go back.

Looking for some feedback.
Rumor has it that we may be getting another 10'x 20' tent. That is if Cosco does not sell out of them over night.
Do we want to put it over by the cut grass area headed toward the plane field or do we want to put it end to end with the existing tent to make one 10"x40' shelter?

There may also be another surprise but I will not say anything untill it happens.

we were looking to expand the parking area a little further north as we seem to be gaining more heli members.
So an east to west end to end based of of the current tents location would go through that parking area.

Just an update, Robert Greenberg dropped the tent off on the heli side. If anyone is available tomorrow to work, I would like to clear the area for where the tent is going to go. Maybe assemble the frame and mark where the footings are going. Saturday I will pick up the concrete and hardware. We can then set the frame in place and pour the footings.

The only issue I see with option C and B is even though you will have a better view of the west field you will always be looking towards the Sun's southerly track accross the sky. Most of the heli pilots do not arrive untill noon and by then the sun is at the back of everyone on the east field. So based on the overall usage and current replys it seens Option A is favored so far.

If safety is a concern with the tent option which it justly should be we still plan on on installing 2" mesh safty netting on the flight side of the tents as Benny had suggested awhile back.

I will be at the field tomorrow (Wednesday) to dig and install the anchor blocks for the new tents. I plan on getting there around 5:30pm. If anyone is free to lend a hand it would be appreciated. Come prepared to Dig. I will have the digging tools.

Rumor also has it that we now have a porta john on site.
I will let you know if it is real. The info did come from a reliable source who saw it in person.

Have not found a L600 for pheonix. I went out and purchased Heli-X which has a Logo 600 Vbar. Heli X also allows you to import your Vbar file and that file will be used on all Vbar models in Heli X. Have not tried that feature because the Logo 600 in the sim is very close to my own.

Hey Doc81 don't be shy. I remember the first day i found the field and club. As a total novice I step out of my car to see a Trex 700 tearing up the sky. I said to myself I can't fly in front of these pilots they are too good.
As I get closer I see it is Justin behind the sticks. I almost got back into the car. If not for the open friendship of Benny, Justin and the rest of the pilots I met. I would have missed out on a year+ of excellent friendship and flying with a great club.

So come out and join us, we are all out there to have fun and be safe.

RCRCC open 24/7

Looks like my only day for flying is Sunday.

Will try and get the grass cut tomorrow or early Saturday morning.

Just an FYI I have set up a perimeter markers and florecent pink mason string to outline the parking area and base for the mower shed. The town was going to spread crushed concrete for these areas this week. But due to the inclement weather I doubt they will get to it untill next week. I have made the string level low enough that most of is should be able to step over it. If ist should inadvertently get knocked over please make your best effort to replace it where it was.

Thanks

I agree with benny on the nitro giving you instant feedback on bad collective managment.
Electric although being more forgiving, with todays technology and data logging. w
Would allow you to analyze your flight and see where you may be able to reduce points of overload.
Also with out the noise of a nitro motor the blade noise tells a story of its own

So just run electric and not wory about the collective managment.

Interesting to see with the ever developing advances in lopo power and motors. The nitro/ electric line is getting closer.

Hopefully the logo 700 lives up to the expectations when it arrives.

I have funny feeling Bobby could smoke the esc, puff the packs and melt the motor.

Wow i did not think this would get so heated within our own club.

I was just being light hearted at the choices of nitro and electric. We fly what we want because we have fun doing it. I chose electric because that is what I am involved in for a living. I am also monitoring my battery life compared to nitro fuel. It will take some time to see which is more cost effective but will let you guys know in a year.
I also remember at one of our club town events Marc had his nitro trainer in the air. This young boy came up to me and asked the following question "Mister why is that guy flying a helicopter that pollutes our atmosphere?". I did not have an answer. Before you say it I know when our Lipo's reach the end of their life a large percentage will find their way to a landfill rather than be recycled.

Getting back to poking fun, it seems at XFC and Vielo of the top 3 spots in each competition only 1 nitro heli made it.

Granted if the winners were flying nitro they probably would have finished just where they did.

So for a 3 minute competition flight electric can hold its own. If you streach it out to 5-8 electric loses. If you take it out to 20 minutes or more only Gary and his Bergen will still be in the air.

Can you imagine the vibration levels from a single cylinder diesel. Definatly not Vbar sensor friendly.

I like Saul's paper heli and rubberband idea. Definatly low cost on rebuilds after a crash.

I would be careful about the evaulation part. Most of the public considers what we do is flying of toy helicopters. For grown men that is questionable behavior.

I think the higher level of concern with the butts is the smolder factor with a brush fire later after we are gone. If it reached a valve tap it would be a serious issue.
Lets not give them any reasons to hold against us and pick up after ourselves.
