Sun, 29 Jan 2017 10:00

Eynsford Model Helicopter Club

Richard Hartmann (Rich23)

6 flights

Turned up and had nothing but rain for the first half hour, I thought it would be a crappy day but the weather cleared up and got 6 packs flown. 2 on the Protos 780 and 4 on the 700 Comp. The Protos still has me undecided on weather to keep it stretched or not, but I will give it a few more flights before I decide weather to return it to 700 or not. The Goblin came out just in time for the wind to pick up! Still had some good flights and on the last one started with some backwards flying and moving about while inverted.

Richard Hartmann (Rich23)

8 flights

A great day at Eynsford, although frosty its was sunny and low wind speed. Managed to maiden the Protos Max V2 780 which was rather rubbish. Spoke to Jim and managed to see were I went wrong with the rates and gains so a quick adjustment and wow, a great flying heli. Maybe need a tuning flight or two to get it dialled but extremely happy with it now.

Medway Massive RC

Richard Hartmann (Rich23)

4 flights

A surprisingly good session going over flips, rolls, piro's and tried to keep things flowing with transitions. Some worked some didn't but I feel like I progressed. Need to get on the sim to learn some new stuff.

Sun, 13 Nov 2016 10:00

Medway Massive RC

Richard Hartmann (Rich23)

6 flights

A great morning at the massive with 6 flights on the G700 Comp. On the first flight the balance plug came loose and got stuck between the frame and motor belt causing it to wear down through 2 pins. Luckily no shorting and the battery survived to fight another day. Had a few tuning flights to get it dialled in to my liking then had a few test flights to check settings.


Fri, 11 Nov 2016 13:45

Medway Massive RC

Richard Hartmann (Rich23)

6 flights

Had a great session at the field this afternoon in the sun and very little wind. I managed to finish the Goblin 700 comp in time and get its maiden done. Had a tuning flight after and got started on dialling it in. πŸ˜ƒ A very happy bunny


Thu, 10 Nov 2016 11:45

Medway Massive RC

Richard Hartmann (Rich23)

4 flights

Got out with Alan for 4 flights on the Protos today. Tried to get some funnel practise in but it just wasn't happening today, no matter what it went wrong!


Sun, 6 Nov 2016 09:15

4 flights

A cold early start today but had 4 flights trying to do some funnels and just fly about.


Wed, 2 Nov 2016 13:25

Medway Massive RC

Richard Hartmann (Rich23)

Had 2 flights at the field but the wind was cold and my hands froze. But managed to get a little practise in before letting Tony have the last battery.


Mon, 31 Oct 2016 13:40

Medway Massive RC

Richard Hartmann (Rich23)

4 flights

Had 4 flights at lunch today and got the flight count at 400! Also had a funneltastic time trying to get the funnels more dialled in. Managed 3 out of a possible 7 today. Went over a few basics as well.


Sat, 29 Oct 2016 13:40

Medway Massive RC

Richard Hartmann (Rich23)

4 flights

Had a great little session at the field this afternoon. Got 4 flights in and managed a couple of funnels but need to work on the elevator a bit more. Had a little incident at the end of the second flight with a little auto (Jack Hammer!!!) which broke the skids but still flew 2 more flights. The break was under the frame so they still supported the weight of the heli on take offs and landings.


Fri, 28 Oct 2016 13:30

Medway Massive RC

Richard Hartmann (Rich23)

3 flights

A great little session today with 3 flights on the Protos. Managed to get 3 decent looking funnels, although they climbed, today and almost had a full piro flip but the thumbs all went wrong at the end bit. Rescue saved the dayπŸ˜€


Tue, 25 Oct 2016 14:00

Medway Massive RC

Richard Hartmann (Rich23)

3 flights

A great lunchtime session today. I had 3 flights and got my first full funnel in, I was well chuffed with myself. It wasn't perfect but the height was consistent and it stayed in a circle. All I have to do now is remember how I did it!πŸ˜€


Sun, 23 Oct 2016 09:40

Medway Massive RC

Richard Hartmann (Rich23)

4 flights

Had 4 great flights on the Protos today after its maintenance. I had forgotten how good this heli was! Funnel starts felt better straight away and half piro flips were back to were I could do them fast and slow. Shame the wind and cold got to me.

Had 3 flights between the rain showers today. Just went over orientations, flips, rolls and tried some funnels.


Tue, 11 Oct 2016 12:25

Medway Massive RC

Richard Hartmann (Rich23)

3 flights

I got to the field to find the farmer and his mate ploughing and spraying the field. I was just going to leave but decided to have a quick flight doing some hovering, flips and rolls. I enjoyed it so much I went for the second pack too. By the third pack the sprayer had gone so had a lovely flight with loads of flips and rolls, hovering manoeuvres and some half piro practise.


Sun, 9 Oct 2016 11:00

Medway Massive RC

Richard Hartmann (Rich23)

5 flights

A bit of a mixed session today until Connor put his settings in the NEO. After the VTX blades were swapped for Cyclones I had to retune the head and found the sweet spot. Shame I ran out of packs before I could get on with some new stuff. Thanks Connor!


Mon, 3 Oct 2016 13:40

Medway Massive RC

Richard Hartmann (Rich23)

3 flights

Got out at lunch today for 3 flights on the Logo 700. The Cyclone blades are defiantly a improvement over the VTX's for me. Had a great little test session today a finally got my funnel starts consistent. Now just need to keep the pitch steady and maintain height as they tend to go up in to the stratosphere. Also got back on the half piro flips, need to get them consistently level so I can string both halves together. Also practised turns, rolls and flips. A good day.


Sun, 2 Oct 2016 09:45

Medway Massive RC

Richard Hartmann (Rich23)

4 flights

Met up with the rest of the guys at the field and would of been a great session today but the wind was just to strong for me. Managed 4 flights after sorting out some setup issues and swapping from the VTX blades to the Cyclones. The Cyclones have brought the heli to life with more pop and faster response. Going to try a back to back comparison and then make a blade choice. Tony flew a pack, which was a joy to watch and gave the thumbs up. Just need a calmer day now so I can get back on the new moves.


Thu, 22 Sep 2016 13:45

Medway Massive RC

Richard Hartmann (Rich23)

3 flights

Managed to get out at lunch for another 3 flights on the Logo 700. Kept on with the new moves but I lost the ability to maintain momentum in the manoeuvres.


Wed, 21 Sep 2016 13:15

Medway Massive RC

Richard Hartmann (Rich23)

3 flights

Popped out for 3 flights with the Logo 700 at lunch and had a good little session. I tried to get a few new moves to the field but only managed to either start them or used rescue to recover. I was a little nervous too which didn't help. More sim time needed!


Sun, 18 Sep 2016 09:15

Medway Massive RC

Richard Hartmann (Rich23)

6 flights

Met up with the Massive (Or should that be "Club Goblin") today and watched some great flying. Had both the Protos and Logo 700 out today and really enjoyed the days flying. After some maintenance on the Protos it was good to get it back in the air and finally got the Logo dialled in after some trouble getting it tuned.


Wed, 14 Sep 2016 10:00

Medway Massive RC

Richard Hartmann (Rich23)

5 flights

Another 5 flights on the Logo 700 this morning. A little more tweaking the rates and agility to get it to feel more precise and responsive. Also, under Tony's direction, I managed a funnel! Just the one mind but at least I now have a great start point. Thanks TonyπŸ‘


Tue, 13 Sep 2016 09:30

Medway Massive RC

Richard Hartmann (Rich23)

5 flights

A great little session this morning with the Logo 700. Managed to get the main rotor rates dialled in to how I like them and upped the tail rates a touch too. The Logo is very nimble and inspires confidence, I think we will get on well.


Sun, 11 Sep 2016 09:30

Medway Massive RC

Richard Hartmann (Rich23)

5 flights

Today was Logo 700 maiden day and it couldn't be a better forecast. little to no wind and sunny! The actual maiden was interrupted by a dog walker so after about a minute I went off to the side and checked rescue and bail out under the encouragement of the club members. A little bit of tuning still to do with the rates but I am very impressed with the Logo 700. Nimble, very precise and surprisingly quite.


And Connor Sloan putting it through its paces. (Sorry about the different video sources)

Wed, 17 Aug 2016 14:00

Medway Massive RC

Richard Hartmann (Rich23)

2 flights

Got out at lunch for 2 flights on the Protos today. The wind was a big put off as it was blowing in your face. Tried to get the 105 tail blades dialled in but the tail just feels soft compared to the 115mm that were on it before. Thankfully the new Rail 116mm turned up while I was out so will fit them this evening.


Sun, 14 Aug 2016 10:00

Medway Massive RC

Richard Hartmann (Rich23)

4 flights


Sat, 13 Aug 2016 10:30

Medway Massive RC

Richard Hartmann (Rich23)

5 flights

Went out for 5 flights after updating the NEO and Kosmik to the latest software. The NEO software was almost the same apart from the the rates were a touch sharp! Reduced them down to where I like them. Also adjusted the head speed after fitting a 21t pinion.


Sun, 7 Aug 2016 10:30

Eynsford Model Helicopter Club

Richard Hartmann (Rich23)

8 flights

Had a great day up at Eynesford for the BBQ and some flying. Great guy's and a fantastic club.


Sat, 6 Aug 2016 16:15

Medway Massive RC

Richard Hartmann (Rich23)

4 flights

After the wind picked up at ARA I thought I would try my luck at the massive on my way home. First pack needed rescue to save a half piro then the Kosmik went in to low voltage mode. Never had this before so panicked a little but got it landed. A cell on the Zippy's had gone down. Normally that would be a sign to pack up and go home with a intact heli...

On the last flight the heli made a funny noise on positive pitch inputs. I bought it over to check it out and the motor belt snapped. I bled off as much head speed as I could before the crops got it.


Sat, 6 Aug 2016 13:30

Richard Hartmann (Rich23)

1 flights

Popped down to ARA for the Heli day after work. As I turned up the wind picked up so just had the one flight as the wind was to strong for me. Got to have a go on a glider too.


Fri, 5 Aug 2016 18:15

Medway Massive RC

Richard Hartmann (Rich23)

3 flights

Went out for a little evening session and got 3 flights on the Protos. Went through some inverted hover orientation practise and tried to string some moves together. Then I thought I would practise auto's. Got over cocky!


Fri, 5 Aug 2016 13:30

Medway Massive RC

Richard Hartmann (Rich23)

5 flights

A bit of a mixed session this afternoon. Trying to get some new stuff to the field but failing badly! Managed to get a few bits of grass cut though. More sim time...

2 flights

A good session today although it was cut short.


Tue, 26 Jul 2016 13:15

Medway Massive RC

Richard Hartmann (Rich23)

3 flights

A mixed session at lunch today with darkish skies and a few gusts. Managed to get a little over cocky with the auto practise and nearly put it in as I nearly ran out of spool up space! Started on the second part or the piro flip but need more sim time on those.


Sun, 24 Jul 2016 09:45

Medway Massive RC

Richard Hartmann (Rich23)

5 flights


Thu, 21 Jul 2016 13:10

Medway Massive RC

Richard Hartmann (Rich23)

2 flights

Had a quick 2 flights at lunch with the Protos today. Went over half piro flips, both right and left rudder, and tried to get some aileron tic toc's going but just couldn't get them today. I then went on to blade stops but my bottle kept going. I even managed a inverted to normal auto, which went well, but flicked out to early. Could of gone lower and closer to me.
