Was going to go before work, but it started raining just as I was leaving. Had a lunchtime session instead.
It was pretty windy, useful for trying the routines. After 4 months of struggle with the Jack Sparrow flight to music, I've decided to ditch it for something else. I think I've found the music I'm replacing it with and now I have 8 days to plan the routine and practice it. I could skip the music round but I might as well try and put something together.

SM was reasonable with good vis and the wind from behind. Still a lot to work on. FS is getting better, but still need to clean up the final bit. Not easy using batteries with 400 cycles that die towards the end, but there aren't any Desire in the country at the moment. FTM is still only halfway there and even that bit needs refining. Will have to finish that ASAP so I can start practising it.

Finally got around to fixing blade tracking on the 550sx, is perfect now. Once again flying was on point, really happy with my progress lately, riding the high while it last!

Wind in the face made things difficult, but good for practice. Had a visitor while I was there. Amazing to see him dropping below the treeline doing manoeuvres. There were 2 of them around and one came in really close.
Changed some links and stayed a few minutes extra to charge up the packs for tomorrow morning.

I signed up for the next F3N comp at Staffs Heli Club, so I have 12 days to practice SM, finish the FS and figure out my FTM.
Charged my batts early this morning and got 3 flights in before work. Hopefully with a bit of sim and a couple of nice days, I can get the flights ready in time.

Awesome long weekend. Friday at Weston, lots of flying and watching the guys practice. Saturday at MK for a BBQ and more flying. Had a few thermal warnings in the afternoon, but I think being at Weston in the heat would have been too much for me. Sunday at Gumley. Not too busy, got lots of flying in. Took an afternoon break and went back for some evening flying to finish it off.

Had to increase the negative pitch to make the collective even. For some reason it isn't reaching the endpoints in any of the flight modes. I may need to redo the setup.
One of of the flights I managed to exit out of battery selection. That meant no warnings and the ESC went into LVC and shut down. Fortunately it was giving a bit of power and I managed to get it back to the field. Never done that before, very odd.
Eventually got too windy to fly.

Got it flying again but it had a very bad, slow tail wag. Trying to get it out but couldn't figure it out. I flew it last flight and was hovering inverted and very low for a long time in the flight. I wanted to cut grass but when I got low enough, it got sucked in. I picked it up and flew it again but my main gear was stripped and my main shaft was bent so it didn't fly well, but the tail wag was gone...What!?!?!?

A lovely session with the comp. Started to get back in the groove and get some new moves in. Had a flight with the BN after rebuilding the tail and all seems good. Tony had a flight on the BN and after the flight when I disconnected the 2S LiPo the connector came away from the BEC. I'm really starting to think nitro is not for me.

First was the scale round and I was asked to be a judge, which was interesting. A fun auto contest followed, with me missing the circle completely in one of my attempts. I should have done them inverted, maybe next year.
They finished up with the presentations and I got a trophy and a mug.
The trip home was made in one go in 7 and a half hours, no stops. Awesome weekend, and I'll have to go back next year as they want their trophy back.
