So I took the whole engine apart and replaced the bearings because the rear was shot. I did a few other small things and put it back in. I reset the needle settings and took it back up. It's still very rich but not screaming over 250 Degrees F. YAY!

Not so great on the nitro today. I blew my first plug and was flooding the engine. I'll need to open it up to see what's going on.

Good flying at the FARCC today with a friend, Mark. Got some good flights on the helis. I tried the Fireball with the new Switch 283's and felt a huge difference. Much more crisp. I also maiden a Gentle Lady glider. It needs work but flew great!

Good Flight at the field with some friends. It was vey windy but we made do. I had my pipe come loose on my nitro and had to land early. However, when fixing that, I noticed that my blade grip bolts were almost completely backed out. Thank God for the pipe coming loose.

It was an ok day at the field. I did something to my hands earlier before I started flying and when I started to fly, my hands would uncontrollably shake and feel week as I pinched the sticks. I still managed to fly ok but it wasn't a good feeling. I did lose my 180 with the LED's on it while I flew it at night. Bent the feathering shaft and that was it. No biggie!

Had a great day at the Fall Heli Mow Down! I flew mostly my Nitro and practiced autos in the crazy winds we had that day. I competed in the Auto Contest for my first time and tied for second with, Robert Montee. I just got lucky but it still felt good to do so well. :) Then continued the night with night flying with my nitro and a flight with my 180 with my custom night blades. It was a great event! :D

FIREBALL!!! Finally got it going! Had a wobble, going to replace the tail belt to see if that fixes it.
Nitro did good, however, I had a large, slow tail wag on my second flight. Gotta figure out why now... Fun...
Flew the Stryker on a 3 blade prop. Not bad!
Got my Dad's large trainer flying. I took off and realized my ailerons were reversed. WHOOPS! Almost lost it but I was able to make three passes before landing it safely! THANK GOD!

Pretty good day at the field. Dad and I flew the Yellow trainer and Dad landed it. A little rough but nothing broke. I flew my Stryker for the first time in years and on an EDF 3700KV motor swinging a 4x4.5 prop. It was great and was about as fast as the stock motor. Time to put in the 4S next!!!

Kind of a mixed day. Dad and I went to the field and were the only ones there. It was very windy which wasn't fun on the planes. Dad's Yellow Trainer flew great and ran smooth. My little Red Trainer however, didn't run good at all. We struggled with the tune and the engine cut off in flight. We then decided to call it quits on that plane for the day. I was getting my nitro heli tuned very well and when I was running very low on fuel, I did one final auto. I then decided to do a skidding auto. But at about two feet off the ground, I realize that I had these massive rubber grommets on the skids and I knew the heli was just going to stop dead. So I pulled back but didn't have the head speed and botched the auto. A link popped off and one plastic servo horn stripped. I got very lucky!

I had a great day at the field today!!! I flew my Fireball and 420 but I really enjoyed my T-Rex 600N! I finished breaking in the new OS .55HZ-R engine and started to lean it out and start flying it. It is still very rich and I still need to lean it out A LOT! But I was having fun. On my last flight, I had a very loud squeaking coming from the main rotor head. It's most likely a bearing in the main bearing block. I'll find it soon. Overall, a great day!!! :D

Replaced the clutch and now I have headspeed again! Third breakin tank. Just pitch pumped it in my yard to load the engine. It sounded really good. Still very rich but that's a good thing. Haha.

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... :(

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!!!
