Had a great day at the Fall Heli Mow Down! I flew mostly my Nitro and practiced autos in the crazy winds we had that day. I competed in the Auto Contest for my first time and tied for second with, Robert Montee. I just got lucky but it still felt good to do so well. :) Then continued the night with night flying with my nitro and a flight with my 180 with my custom night blades. It was a great event! :D

FIREBALL!!! Finally got it going! Had a wobble, going to replace the tail belt to see if that fixes it.
Nitro did good, however, I had a large, slow tail wag on my second flight. Gotta figure out why now... Fun...
Flew the Stryker on a 3 blade prop. Not bad!
Got my Dad's large trainer flying. I took off and realized my ailerons were reversed. WHOOPS! Almost lost it but I was able to make three passes before landing it safely! THANK GOD!

Pretty good day at the field. Dad and I flew the Yellow trainer and Dad landed it. A little rough but nothing broke. I flew my Stryker for the first time in years and on an EDF 3700KV motor swinging a 4x4.5 prop. It was great and was about as fast as the stock motor. Time to put in the 4S next!!!

Kind of a mixed day. Dad and I went to the field and were the only ones there. It was very windy which wasn't fun on the planes. Dad's Yellow Trainer flew great and ran smooth. My little Red Trainer however, didn't run good at all. We struggled with the tune and the engine cut off in flight. We then decided to call it quits on that plane for the day. I was getting my nitro heli tuned very well and when I was running very low on fuel, I did one final auto. I then decided to do a skidding auto. But at about two feet off the ground, I realize that I had these massive rubber grommets on the skids and I knew the heli was just going to stop dead. So I pulled back but didn't have the head speed and botched the auto. A link popped off and one plastic servo horn stripped. I got very lucky!

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 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

Flew the 180. It's been having some problems lately. I got it flying but then the tail belt was having problems. I think it's time to change it. :)

Started as a good day. I was tuning my E7SE with a friend and getting the heli flying solid. Getting ready for tonight at Center Stage for Ircha's Got Talent. During the flight at Center Stage, I was getting into the grove and flying harder than I have ever flown before! All things were going great until the blades collapsed and sliced the tail boom off and smashed into the ground! That sucked because I just got that heli flying again from my last crash! Oh well, made a good show for the crowd. Got the heli rebuilt. It wasn't as bad as it looked.

Another good day at NATS. However, I was very unlucky when I went up for my final flight for the day and all of a sudden, as soon as I started my maneuvers, the wind picked up so hard that I had a hard time keeping control of my heli let alone fly the maneuvers properly. I got a bad score for that. Dang wind!!!

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!

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!!!
