I had a very bad day at HOD. Nothing was going right. My nitro clutch went out, one of my 180's ESC was shorting out, I blew up a brand new inverter. And to top it all off, that speed up gear was way too fast on the tail. Causing the heli to fly unstable and sounding really pissed off. I got too low in a full speed funnel and plowed it into the ground. I bent the boom almost 90 degrees without kinking it. It was a perfect bend. Tail shaft bent, broke one tail boom support rod, and that's all I found so far. Not a good day for me... :(

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!?!?!?

Was practicing some F3C maneuvers when I completely drove my heli in when I applied positive when I should have applied negative. Whoops. I did break parts, cracked the main shaft, and a few other small things. I did fly it after the crash but it didn't fly well after. So I will consider this a crash.

Flew two good flights on my 180. Last flight, I blew out the tail and it fell hard on the ground. Luckily, no damage and I finished that flight. However, the E7SE wasn't so lucky... For months now, I've been trying to get the tail adjusted right but every time I get something worked out or close, something else would pop up. I was switching through my banks on the Vbar to see what setting seemed better, but when I lightly used the tail and flipped it inverted, the tail blew out and it was uncontrollable. I hit throttle hold and was able to push the heli away from me and lay it as flat as I could get it. The damage... Canopy is shot, one main blade, and about $100 in parts. Not so bad. However, my brand new Glaciers were ejected into the canopy, compromising the packs. If you felt the ground shake that day, it was me. I looked at the V-Log to see that my tail sensor has completely failed and currently isn't working. So that was a costly $550 crash. And that doesn't include the Vbar. Not a fun day...

A good day flying all over the place. I did some great flying on the 180. I replaced the main shaft and all problems are gone. I did fly it at a different field and did some awesome low 3D as well as some skid bumps on the road. I then flew it at the field and tried a skid bump, only to have the grass catch the tail and send the heli doing a chicken dance for a second. I picked it up and flew it with no broken parts. Rob also helped me try out some Sportsmen maneuvers that I need to learn for NATS this year. A lot of fun there. Also did a good flight on the E7SE. A good day today. :)

Haven't flown this thing in a while. I put the three blade head back on and noticed some head wobble. Turns out, my carbon fiber main shaft is cracked. Gotta replace it now. A great upgrade BTW!

I still need to work more on the E7SE but it's getting better.

I finally flew my T-Rex 600N and put the first tank through the break in process. Flew it under the lights.

I flew the 180 again with the night blades on Saturday night of the fun fly. Matt Botos was commentating my flight which made me fly a little harder than normal. I got inches from the ground a few times and just hearing the crowd cheer made me feel like a pro. (Even though I'm not. Haha) Extremely fun!!!

First flight on the 180, I flew under the lights and it started to rain hard. I slammed it into the ground but didn't break anything and continued the flight.
Second flight on the 180, I put the 2 blade head back on and put on my custom rail 156 night blades and it flew great!
Third flight on the 180 was even better.

E7SE flight was ok, still need to work on the tail gain.

Ok flight. Got too low and slammed it into the ground and broke the skids. They were already broke so I don't consider it a crash as I flew it without the skids.

Flew at the Heli Spring Fling at my local club. I didn't do much flying as, once again, having problems with my helis. The 180 is still flying but my tail will need to be rebuilt as I am getting a lot of slop in it. Nothing too bad. But my E7SE... I flew it for the first time since the ESC shutdown and I held my breath every time I flew it inverted. It didn't shut down but I'm having that really bad shake again. I just stripped the whole heli to fix it the first time, what can it be this time? I've been under a crap load of stress lately because of the problems with my helis. It just seems like everything I go to do fails or makes things worse. I just want to fly my larger helis...

I also crashed the 180 into a tree but I picked it up and finished my flight. No broken parts so I am not counting it as a crash. I am catching up to you, RichardV!!! Haha.

This was a very good flight in the tight space that I'm flying in. I did very well and had well control in funnels. I even tighten the funnels to the point where the tail stayed in one spot. I had it light that and controlled for about 30 seconds. Very fun. :)

Really good flight on the 180. I practiced some funnels and hurricanes and started practicing piro hurricanes.

The E7SE, however, was the first real flight since the vibration problems. It wasn't a great flight as I think I was just rusty. However, at the 5 minute mark, I was inverted in forward flight climbing when my ESC shut down. I immediately flipped the heli over and killed the head speed to the point where I could count the RPM of the blades! Luckily, I was able to regain enough head speed to flair it at the end and land it safely without even a bounce on the ground. I was very lucky and will look at the logs to see why it shut down.

A very good day of flying. I'm still a little sick but a lot better today. Flying the 3-Blade head and at a lower head speed makes for some great flight times! Also, I tested the E7SE after some work and finally got the shake out!

A very good day of flying. I'm still a little sick but a lot better today. Flying the 3-Blade head and at a lower head speed makes for some great flight times! Also, I tested the E7SE after some work and finally got the shake out!

First 3D flight with the 3-Blade head and it flew great! The heli is so much quitter and more stable in the air. It is a lot easier on the tail and just feels like a larger heli! I flew it today in between thunder storms. a lot of storm systems are passing through all day today. But I had to get a flight in today to test it. Haha.

First flight was good.

Second flight was at night and under a light. I changed my head to the 3-Blade head that I had for years. I decided to give it a try again. It was a good flight. There's a huge difference from the 2 to the 3 head. Can't wait to try to 3D it in the morning. Oh, and I did change the pinion.

Ok flight at home but the second flight was on my way home from work when I stopped at an empty lit parking lot and flew it. The wind was strong so it was very hard to fly. I did a flip at one point and the wind caught the disc and blew it straight to me. I hit TH and the heli bounced off of me. Close call. Only light damage.

A good day of flying. Though on my 3rd 180CFX flight, I had a link pop off in flight and the heli shook and the crashed. I only had to replace skids, one tail boom support rod, and the links. Then I was back in the air!

A good day of flying before I go to work. The temp was great but the wing was high. I still put on some flight in the day on both helis. Though, my last E7SE flight was cut short due to a bad shake in the head and tail. I am still investigating the shakes. The 180, I continued to fly under the lights at night after work.

Practiced some tic tocs and some speed passes on the 180. The E7SE, I flew it for the first time this year and since the crash at HOD. I still need work done on the tail but it did great for what I did to it today.

I had a great day with my 180CFX today! I did my normal stuff and getting better at it but I practiced my piro flips and got them really smoothened out! I didn't want to land when my timer went off! Then this evening, I flew in the yard over a huge fire in the middle of my yard. I pulled off the gloves and just smacked the shiznit out of my 180 over the deck and over the fire. There was a lot of brush in the fire so that led to a lot of smoke. Seeing the vortexes from the tips of the rotor blades was so awesome to see. I almost lost my heli as I was staring at the votaries when the heli flew through the smoke. By far, the best flight yet!!! Battery 2, both flights.

Good Flights. The wind was in gusty but the heli flew well in it. Same stuff as before but I did tightened my funnels to one spot and about 5' from the ground.

Great two flights. Very windy in the field. I practiced some more speed passes and tried a pirouetting tic toc. It wasn't pretty but it was my first one in real life. Battery 2 for the first flight, then battery 1 for the second.

Great Flight, no wind. I dialed the tail gain down from 70% to 67% and it reduced more tail wag. I did some mild 3D and then tried some speed passes. I gotta say, even though I haven't practiced speed flight and I was in a tight area with trees and fences, I still got that thing to hall!!! Very fun flight. I can't wait for the next. Battery 1, flew at home.

Crashed as a servo died and the heli pitched forward with full negative pitch. I throttle held and watched it fall. Only damage was the feathering shaft, main shaft, thrust bearings, bottom plate, and of course, the servo.

This is the first three flights I flew for the year before I started logging them on here. I had them logged in the RC log application but it crashed and I lost all of my flight tracks from last year and the beginning of this year. So I know they were around the 3 minute range so I am adding them as 3 minutes each. Now my total on here is the real total of flights I have put on on all of my aircrafts. :)
