3x F3C and 3x Sportsmans flights. First few flights were a struggle due to nerves but improved as the day went on. Couldnt buy a landing in the circle after the autos but never mind. Weather was absolutely fantastic and a large dose of sunburn was received. Also watched the F3N guys demonstrate their skills on the sticks.

Saturday night was a hog roast washed down with a few beers :)

Wicked as we used to say.

I flew all morning with Mark and Andrew. I did as much flying as talking today, so I enjoyed quite a bit of each.

My Trex 150 can do quite tight tic tocs without bogging when at full rpm, significantly more so than the Blade 130S. Having said that, a moderate amount of collective management for either model is all that's needed to help smooth the flying. Perfect morning then for the little ones, especially the first 2 to 3 hours during which the wind was almost zero.

It was great to fly the Goblin 700 again for the first time in absolutely ages. I'm hoping to get stuck in with flying it much more often too. And the Logo 550SX, simply wonderful as always.

MK Heli Club

I was aiming to be there really early, but got delayed a bit. I didn't miss anything because the drizzle only stopped at about 8 anyway. From there on it was endless flying for me. Quite a few people were out, including Baz who took his 700n out for a bit. I don't do nitro, but I can appreciate it when people know how to get it working Andy did over 2 hours on his 600n and that engine just goes flight after flight.
Alessio had his 700x go in after one of his servo screws came out in flight. It's not a bad crash, mostly boom, should be a quick fix.
After 2 weeks of struggling with weak side piro rainbows, it finally came together today, and I couldn't get enough of them, I think I flew more of right rudder piros than anything else.
Eventually it was just myself and David until it got to grey for me to fly any more. Home for a adult bev and a bit of F1 qualis. Perfect day!

Good flight with the Fireball today during the Eclipse! We only got 80% where I live but it was enough to throw off my depth perception! Still a good, short flight. :)https://www.facebook.com/michaelshaggy.parker.1/videos/vb.100021359140176/112857786102859/?type=2&video_source=user_video_tab

I wanted to watch Matt practice for the 3D Champs, but he wasn't around so I skipped Larcs and went to Gumley for the morning. Then off to MK for the afternoon and some flying with Mike and the Daves. Rain set in earlier than expected but not a bad day.

Decent evening of flying with Tom. Last flight of the day and I was messing around with autos. I did an inverted delayed bailout, and flicked the switch the wrong way, thereby cutting the motor instead of powering it up. I flicked it back immediately but fast spool-up had been cancelled and I knew I couldn't save it. It plopped onto the grass inverted and fell over. After a brief checkover, it was flying again. The boom had shifted up a few mm, but that was fixed easily enough, so I'm not counting it as a crash. Lucky escape!

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

Good flights with the airwolf, we have sorted he fuel system out and it reliably will fly for 10 mins without losing power. Did have one flame out due to the clunk not being at the base of the tank but soon fixed. The tail wag is almost gone although still a tiny oscillation which I'm sure can be rid of. A couple of flights on the urukay then home.
