All good until the G4 engine stopped mid flight.

Stripped down on the bench to find part of the top of the piston missing !

Freezing cold! Not flown for a few weeks and felt very uneasy but got better with more flights.

Decided to try and adjust vbar on the 700. Set up different head gains across a couple of banks. All other settings the same. Found that reducing the gain from 80 to 60 eliminated a wobble that was happening on elevator tic tocs!

Was good to see a good attendance...

Great session down at point D on the field.
Managed to sort generator out so was able to charge at the field.

More grass roots practice...getting more consistent.

Gary & Mark were just leaving as I got there.
There were also a few gliders parked a bit too close to our designated flying patch, so this had put them off.

I decided to stay and fly in a controlled space.
Haven't flown for quite a while but surprisingly not too bad.

Tried a few of the grass roots moves just to see how I'm going to get on.
Definitely need to work on a freestyle routine even if its on the sim.

Richard turned up and had a few flights until his tx battery reported being flat !

Let him have a fly on the 700DFC. Its amazing how quick that thing can eat up the sky.
BIG AIR BABY !!!!

Started to get more confident with some practice for grass roots with the Logo.
Can do the moves but need more practice to make them more tidy.

Then had a couple of fun flights with the 700. Blade sounds are great in a strong wind !

A bit of real practice for grass roots with the Logo. Managed to fly all of my set manoeuvres but they certainly need some work to tidy them up ;-)

Flew the 700 DFC after a few vbar tweaks. Seems a bit better.
Second flight...setting up the piro rate and stop gains.
A forced auto as the boom seems to have slipped and I lost all tail authority while piro at full rate.
Its a good job I have been practising piro moves. I have never tried a piro auto though, and never want to do one again !! Down safely in one piece... :-)

A bit more tuning of the FBL. Feels a bit better now.

Started with a couple of flights with the Logo with some practice for my set manoeuvres.
Some were better than others but... thats what practice is for.

Also put two flights in with the 700. Upped the timer to 6:30 per flight with the packs showing 55% left. I think that I should be able to get this up to close 8 mins !
Vbar still needs a bit of tuning. There seems to be bit of a cylic wobble during a forward flip. Happening when coming out of the inverted section back to upright. Might just reduce the gains next time to see. One thing at a time.

All in all a great time was had by all of the CMHC members that were there.
Also well done Gary T for nailing your A test practical.

Managed to get the YEP120HV programmed and governor store set-up.
Test flights in very strong gusty winds.

Flew well but need to tune the vbar in some calmer conditions.
6 minutes flight left 40% in the packs.

Maidened eventually after sorting out the ESC timing settings.

Smooth smooth smooth... :-)

5 mins per flight with over 50% left in the packs
