Haven't flown this heli since HOD. It didn't fly all too well as I found out my main shaft is slightly bent so it had a vibe.

Very nice day at the field. Practiced for NATS once again and I am feeling better with this set. Though, I'm a long way from perfect.

Went to the field with my dad and flew my 420 twice and practiced my F3C flying again. I also got my very first plane flying again. It's a very small nitro top wing plane. It's been two years since it flew. I have to recenter the servos because my trims were maxed out but other than that, it flew well.

Did some good night flying under the lights on the 4th! Robert Montee helped me with my Sportsman class maneuvers and then I flew some low head speed flights on the 420. I flew the 180 as well but only could fly low head speed as I had a really bad drift on a higher head speed. So I have a bad vibration somewhere. Overall, a very good night. :)

Thank you, Rob!

Replaced the clutch and now I have headspeed again! Third breakin tank. Just pitch pumped it in my yard to load the engine. It sounded really good. Still very rich but that's a good thing. Haha.

Great flight. First time My Dad saw this heli fly. I'm getting better with this heli. The rates are still a little slow but no problem laying it low on the deck over the beans. Did some big power loops, fast funnels, really low four point flips, and a dive so low when I pulled out from it that the skids touched the beans. OH YEAH!!!

I had a much better day at HOD. Still had a few problems here and there but I was able to fix the short on my second 180 and I was able to maiden my new Goblin 420 Sport! I had a friend of mine help me set of the gyro but we didn't know how to set up the gov. Luckily, Alex Rose, Owner of MSH was there to save the day. He willingly donated a part of his flying time to sit down with me and not only help me set up my gov, but also go through the settings and checked them off. Also explain to me what the different parameters were on the MSH BRAIN. And after we were finished, I asked if he could spot for me and he agreed and also grabbed his heli. I maiden the heli with ease and after a few seconds of hovering, I was 3D'ing it with little adjustments needed. Throughout the day and into the next morning, Alex flew with me every flight I made on the 420. Thank you, Alex for your time and your support. I am sold on the MSH BRAIN and will be buying more in the future!

I had a very bad day at HOD. Nothing was going right. My nitro clutch went out, one of my 180's ESC was shorting out, I blew up a brand new inverter. And to top it all off, that speed up gear was way too fast on the tail. Causing the heli to fly unstable and sounding really pissed off. I got too low in a full speed funnel and plowed it into the ground. I bent the boom almost 90 degrees without kinking it. It was a perfect bend. Tail shaft bent, broke one tail boom support rod, and that's all I found so far. Not a good day for me... :(

Got it flying again but it had a very bad, slow tail wag. Trying to get it out but couldn't figure it out. I flew it last flight and was hovering inverted and very low for a long time in the flight. I wanted to cut grass but when I got low enough, it got sucked in. I picked it up and flew it again but my main gear was stripped and my main shaft was bent so it didn't fly well, but the tail wag was gone...What!?!?!?

Was practicing some F3C maneuvers when I completely drove my heli in when I applied positive when I should have applied negative. Whoops. I did break parts, cracked the main shaft, and a few other small things. I did fly it after the crash but it didn't fly well after. So I will consider this a crash.

Uncle's House.

Michael Parker

Flew two good flights on my 180. Last flight, I blew out the tail and it fell hard on the ground. Luckily, no damage and I finished that flight. However, the E7SE wasn't so lucky... For months now, I've been trying to get the tail adjusted right but every time I get something worked out or close, something else would pop up. I was switching through my banks on the Vbar to see what setting seemed better, but when I lightly used the tail and flipped it inverted, the tail blew out and it was uncontrollable. I hit throttle hold and was able to push the heli away from me and lay it as flat as I could get it. The damage... Canopy is shot, one main blade, and about $100 in parts. Not so bad. However, my brand new Glaciers were ejected into the canopy, compromising the packs. If you felt the ground shake that day, it was me. I looked at the V-Log to see that my tail sensor has completely failed and currently isn't working. So that was a costly $550 crash. And that doesn't include the Vbar. Not a fun day...

A good day flying all over the place. I did some great flying on the 180. I replaced the main shaft and all problems are gone. I did fly it at a different field and did some awesome low 3D as well as some skid bumps on the road. I then flew it at the field and tried a skid bump, only to have the grass catch the tail and send the heli doing a chicken dance for a second. I picked it up and flew it with no broken parts. Rob also helped me try out some Sportsmen maneuvers that I need to learn for NATS this year. A lot of fun there. Also did a good flight on the E7SE. A good day today. :)

Haven't flown this thing in a while. I put the three blade head back on and noticed some head wobble. Turns out, my carbon fiber main shaft is cracked. Gotta replace it now. A great upgrade BTW!

It was an ok flight. Still have to replace the ESC and work on the tail. I did a lot of hard(ish) stops close to the ground and watched the young corn plants blow from the rotor wash.

I still need to work more on the E7SE but it's getting better.

I finally flew my T-Rex 600N and put the first tank through the break in process. Flew it under the lights.

I flew the 180 again with the night blades on Saturday night of the fun fly. Matt Botos was commentating my flight which made me fly a little harder than normal. I got inches from the ground a few times and just hearing the crowd cheer made me feel like a pro. (Even though I'm not. Haha) Extremely fun!!!

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.

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...

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.
