Evening flying with Tom. The dampers were completely shot, making clicking noises, so I replaced the head with one I'd just serviced. There's still some bearing noise but I have the replacement motor back from Align, just need to install it and check everything.

Rain forecast for the afternoon so I got down to Larcs at 7. Lovely blue skies and warm enough. Cleaned the shed out a bit between flights. Once we get rid of the cobwebs and rubbish, it'll be a decent place to hide from the elements.
The weather seemed to hold, so after lunch I went to Gumley until the wind got too strong.
A pretty good day of flying considering the forecast was so bad.

Gumley first to make sure the heli flies and genny works. Then through to Alcester to fly with Dave and Ian. It's a very nice wide field with the sun and wind from behind all day. It'll make a pretty good competition field for F3N.

700 is sorted finally. Found a few issues one after another since the tip over (servo arm cracked, rx cable soldering, boom bolt broke, main grip arm) but finally flying it again. Got a few things to fine turn now.

Cologne, North

Hobee

3 flights

I am still not completely happy with the helis behaviour. It still has a slight shake, which is not like a fast tail wag. So I decided to start over. I set up one bank in the FBL with the default settings which have a lot higher gains than what I am flying at the moment. I just wanted to see how much more the heli would shake with those settings. I was amazed to see, that the shaking did not get worse. The tail wag is a little bit faster, but not really worse than before. And the heli seems to fly a lot better. Of course it was difficult to tell because of the wind. But I think I am on the right track with higher gains.

A good session today trying to get circles nailed but kept losing forward momentum. Still a improvement and got a few good ones in. Had some backwards flying practise too but the sky went dark very quick towards the end and had trouble with orientation. Whilst doing some pie dishes I had a LVC and just made it back to the landing pad in time!

I really felt like I was getting back into it today after my recent year and a bit without flying.

Shockingly after sliding a Turnigy battery into my Logo and tightening the strap it burst into smoking, but luckily it didn't actually go up in flames. I managed to pull it out (it wasn't plugged in to the ESC, so the lead was just dangling out the front) and toss it across the grass so no damage was done to the heli. It was a slightly tight fit sliding the battery in (no puffing though as this was a new pack having only flown 1 to 2 flights, but the plastic frame needs a gentle sand just to make it slide in a little looser), but I don't believe that was the reason, and I'm still extremely surprised that it happened. In the moment it was absolutely shocking, so a very lucky result to have no damage.

I tried flying a few different moves today including several attempts an pirouetting loops, a few of which were starting to form not actually that bad, but as usual a few heart wobbling moments throughout todays flying for me, but you've got to push I suppose if you want to give yourself a chance at getting better.

Richard was very good about 1 1/2 years ago around the time he started to fly his 700 size helis, but now after seeing him fly today it's obvious that he's progressed to being...... not trying to make his head swell any bigger...... but it's simply correct to say a brilliant pilot.

I'm looking forward to next time and what a great day indeed.

Not a very good forecast so decided to stay local. Went to Larcs for an early session before meeting Gary at Gumley. Had a great morning flying with him and the usual fixie group. He managed to smoke a Turnigy pack while putting it into the Logo. Never seen one go up like that before.
Eventually the rain arrived and we called it a day.
