Started off at LMAC. Was a bit busy with planes, left early.
Wasn't sure where to go after that. Felt like a bit of company but still with opportunity to fly big, so made the drive through to MK. Turned out to be perfect. Sun was out, fairly warm and no wind. Just myself, Dave and Phil flying helis. Flew Kev's quad again and crashed it. Good session.

Back at work, but went out for a lunchtime fly. Good fun in the zero-wind conditions. Got the Yak to launch off the stilts and also figured out how to increase the response rates so it will prop-hang on its own.

Decent forecast and nothing to fly, so I quickly glued the Yak back together and charged a few batteries before work. Blue skies and sun but very cold wind. The VBar is definitely an overkill on this plane, good fun though.

Good fun with the Yak until I put it in nose-first and the engine mount broke off. Took a break to go to Central, but Dave was the only one there and on the way out. Went back to LMAC and had a couple of flights on the A. Was chatting to Kev while waiting for a flight and the heli started smoking. I thought it was a lipo but turned out the be the new servo I put in the replace the previous burned out one. Either there is something wrong with the VBar or I haven't set the endpoints properly and it's burning out when it stalls.

Took a half day based on the forecast and it turned out to be foggy all morning. Got loads of flights on the Yak. Tried the gyro stabilisation which can be useful for one handed take-offs but it tends to do weird things at low speeds with high bank angles. Not a bad morning.

Flippy floppy prop hanging bouncing stuff with the Yak. Bored after 4 flights. Back to helis from tomorrow.

Horrible weather for helis. Got the Yak out and messed around. All the Turnigy batteries are stuffed, so those will be going in the bin tonight. The new ones have arrived so I have lots to fly this weekend.

Swapped the dodgy servo out of A this morning. Also set the a Yak up with the new NEO and had 2 flights with Allan's batteries. Mine were all knackered so I'll have to order a bunch tonight.
