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...

Horrible drizzle in the air.

But a nice coffee and a chat with the other club members who braved the weather.

MK Grassroots Competition.

Sets:-
Inverted Level Flypast
Remote Nose In Circle
Three Elevator Flips
Vertical triangle with 180 Piro
Sideways Tick Tocks

I felt that these went ok but rushed them a little with the rain on my glasses.
First Round Placing:- 16th

Freestyle:- Went ok but forgot to add a couple moves that I had practised.
Final placing:- 9th

Overall a great day which has given me motivation to practice harder !
Learn new moves and hopefully improve for next time round.
Before the day I had said that I would be happy with a top ten place, so out of 27 pilots that attended I cant be too hard on myself :-)

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... :-)

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.

First flight since sorting the electronics wiring....
Nice gentle circuits and some extreme hovering for the first flight.... nice :-)

Then second flight some flips and inverted hovers... Back to an upright hover when the dreaded pitch pump happened again... :-( This is an unwanted full collective climb for a brief second.
Throttle hold and a safe landing.
Have no idea what is causing this strange issue now. Have changed the vbar to a demon. Added a separate flight pack with regulator for electronics power. Only thing left is the motor (pyro) and esc (Kontronic HV).

Back to the drawing board...!!!

Couple of flights with the Logo just to get some stick time before I had to leave.
