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!!!

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.

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.
