I went to a local club as a guest flyer. The weather was sunny but a little bit windy. First it took some getting used to flying "in public", but then it was ok. Having that much space to fly was a completely new experience and is definitively great.

I will have to change the belt on my Protos. The tension is a lot looser and also I think the belt looks different.

Had a bit of a chinwag with Martin, Max, Neale and Ewan in the morning. The rain stopped for a bit and I got a few flights in before it came back and we packed up. Met Andrej later and we had a few flights at LMAC in the light drizzle.
I did have one weird thing happen with the VBC though. At one point it completely froze during switch on, with the Mikado logo showing. It wasn't responding to any inputs so I couldn't turn it off. I was about to open it up to disconnect the battery when I remembered the reset hole in the back. Pressed it with a bit of wire and it restarted fine. It all seems OK now and I didn't lose any information.

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.

Started off OK, occasional drizzle but generally flyable. After 12 it just got a little too windy, too cold and the visibility got worse, so I called it a day. I'm trying a slightly higher headspeed on the advice of Phil, we'll see if it pans out.

Very windy, but decent visibility made for a really nice back-to-basics session. I removed the external sensor after a few flights as I didn't like the feel and I also noticed some servo creep on the bench. Took a lunch break just after two to get some food and watch the F1. Went back at around 5 and got 1 flight but it was just too dark.

JR broke the nose off his Sbach in the morning which shorted something out.

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...

The jive 80 died under the construction lights, 2 feet off the deck inverted, neat skid in landing. Not much damage time to go through it anyway. Won the duration auto contest (44 seconds) but came in second in the spot landing. Awesome time!

A good day of flying. I flew 8 flights at home and just hit 200 flights on my 180 since I bought it. Then I went out to the field, day one of the ten day funfly and put on another two flights.

Took the day off work to take advantage of the decent weather. Cloudy and grey most of the day. Set up the external sensor first thing and had a reasonable session. Quite a few fixed wingers out but not enough to get in the way.

I was getting some jerkiness in the cyclic so I've replaced and greased the dampers.

I changed back to the Spinblades and took the 500 for a spin, to see how it handles the wind. It worked really great. I think I will keep the Rex with SpinBlades for the windy days and take the Protos as my good weather flyer.

A good day of flying at home. I did crash the 200QX as the gyro did something and flew straight into the ground. A little glue and it'll be flying again. 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.
