Went out with the Goblin this morning for some post AIR flights and met up with Tony and Pete. Had a great session with just practising and made sure the auto bailout was set up.

A fantastic weekend at White Horse Flying Club for AIR 2016. I had 14 flights over the weekend in the funfly and loved it. Well done to Dean for placing 5th in sports.

Had 6 flights at the field today. First couple I had to share with the farmer as he was doing some crop spraying, but by the 3rd he left me to it. Today I went over hovering, lazy 8's and circuits for the first 2 flights on the Protos, then moved on to piro flip, transition, flips, roll and aileron tic toc practise with the last 2 flights. Made some progress as didn't have to use rescue once with the Protos. Then I had a tuning flight with the Goblin and settled quite quickly. Tried some piro flips but couldn't quite get them and rescue came to the rescue a couple of times. Turned the rates up a little and a touch more style and now they are almost there. The sky was dark with the last Goblin flight so spent most of the last pack messing around and cutting the tall grass.

Met up with the Medway Massive for a good mornings flying. Had a few showers and the wind was quite strong to start with but settled once the sun tried to break through. The first flight on the protos was going well until I had a loss of power then a un called for rescue. Landed and everything checked out ok. Finished the rest of the flight with no issues, I will review the video and logs later.

After some issues with the NEO on the Goblin I finally got my replacement unit to put on. The first flight was perfect, good feeling, responsive and most importantly no elevator nodding!!! 😃 After the first flight the rates and style got adjusted and the second pack was great. Very sharp on the Cyclics and one or two more flights will see it dialled in to how I like it.

A great session at Eynsford today. A great club that made me feel very welcome and has a great atmosphere. Got to fly in front of a crowd which was good experience for GR but the nerves were there in force. Watched some great flying and even managed to borrow a NEO to test the Goblin nod. New NEO = no nodding. Had 4 good flights with the Protos but the nerves held me back.

A great session today for the 2D chumps. Would of been a cracker if the Goblin had stopped nodding...

Some good flights with the Protos and a little progress for the freestyle. Still trying to get the new moves to the field but can't hit the right pitch at the right time! Installed the mid pitch beep to try and help. Hit a new current draw of 208 amps messing about with climb outs and overspeeds.

Got to the field early to do some more testing with the G700C but the nodding is still there. Had 5 flights on the Protos but just wasn't feeling it today. Nothing on centre and nothing seemed to work how I planned. Still managed some practise.

All set for a morning at the field.

A good session at the massive today. Swapped the NEO for a Mini VBar (cheers Pete) and the nodding on the 700C has gone... Looks like the NEO was at fault. Nice to know what it was. The Protos flew great today. More practise for GR and some general practise.

Took the Goblin out to see if the latest batch of "fixes" have sorted out the nodding. Took off nicely but the nodding was still there. Swapping the FBL over next to start eliminating the electrics.

Well after more swapping shims about, gain adjustment, head speed adjustment and gyro pad swaps I still have a elevator nod that will not go away.

Any suggestions?

Met up with the massive today and had a great session. Would of been better if the Goblin re maiden went better, it appears to have a bad nod. Tried all the usual stuff but no luck in sorting it out at the field. Looks like some rebuilding is in order.

The Protos flew great as ever and I got a little practise in for GR. Also started getting the thumbs warmed up for some new moves.

Went out early to try and beat the weather and got 2 flights in on the Protos. I then tried to maiden the Goblin 700c and thats where it all went wrong. The tail was not doing what it should, it was just spinning. After checking everything I tried again but this time the tail blades got munched good and proper. The cause? I had fitted the belt the wrong way. I had checked this but the tail pulley rotates the other way to the head. Moral of the story is to turn the head not the pulley to check the rotation 😠.
