Cold but lovely and sunny with little wind at Mk club today.Enjoyed my flying again after a few weekends of battling strong winds.Practiced my set manoeuvres and did a flight to music.Duncan O and Wayne turned up, they were testing what many people have been wanting for a long time, gears for the Trex 700 to speed the tail up at slower head speeds.Seemed to work well from the flights I watched and also increased the flight times.Duncan seems to have been inspired by Kenny Ko recently and has been flying very low and fast but with complete control, very demoralizing to watch sometimes.Nearly forgot Mike w had a crash.

Knew it would be colder today so charged batteries up to use my heated transmitter mitt.Got to the field and realised I had forgot to bring it.Wind was a bit less than yesterday but found flying even harder as the wind was blowing straight into your face.I noticed yesterday my Trex 550 has developed the tailboom bouncing up and down,I put it down to the strong wing yesterday but its still doing it in lighter winds today so need to investigate that.Not the most successful weekend of flying.

Highlight was Dave s excitement of showing me his super new battery checker, which when he plugged a battery into immediately blew up.😀

Had a go at the set manoeuvres required for F3n,made a right hash of most of it.When you have only one shot at it and its got to be right its not so easy.I hope more practice will iron out any inconsistency.Me and Dave S tried calling for Richard, don't think he was impressed with are efforts,can't remember exactly what he called us but it wasn't very complementary.Mike S had a little mishap resulting in little damage.Mike W had some bigger mishaps.

Good day of practice today at a windy Mk heli club.Flew to music for the first time ever which I found fun and called set manoeuvres for Dave S realised how difficult its going to be to complete 8 set manoeuvres in one flight required for F3n with the short flight times of an electric.

Wind coming from opposite direction to normal, so made for good practice on my set manoeuvres.Found I could actually do a pirro loop in the other direction from normal.

Practicing F3n set manoeuvres with Richard V and Dave S.Found out is ok being able to do manoeuvres any where in the sky but when you try and start them in a certain position and keep them centralized as required for F3n its a hole different ballgame.Much more practice required

Been struggling to do rolling loops, Richard V noticed a problem in my heli setup than could have been hindering my progress.I've improved the setup on the heli so hoping it will help me crack the rolling loop manoeuvre.Richard V was entertaining us with some risky autos at the end of the day, he rolled out of one really close to the ground but the wind had changed direction and the heli went in, luckily the damage wasn't too bad.

Flew well for the first few flights then my flying went downhill.Think I've been persuaded to do F3n next year so need to do more flying.

Got up Mk heliclub early for me, intending to get more flights in..Did 6 flights practicing piro loops any piro funnels and rubbish attempts at rolling loops ,which I always lose momentum at the top.My piro loops now go over the top better after some advice from Richard V.Recharged my batteries only for rain to arrive so end of session.
