Flew the new NEO update yesterday and the SAB was flying like a bag of [email protected]>t. Plugged it back into the software this morning and had a quick test and flying much better again today.

I was getting tail whipping occassionally and slightly odd feel on the cyclics yesterday. Was already looking at how to revert back to the previous version but will see how it goes from here on out.

Excellent session with a good turn out. Maidened the 550 I set up for a new pilot. My first Vcontrol setup :-)

Great session today. Had a good few flights on the Comp and have a better feel for the heli so tried the 2160 HS today. Also got a flight on Pete's 3 bladed KSE. A very nice, smooth heli.



Sat, 8 Oct 2016 09:00

Charmouth

Tony Rocco (Forza)

3 flights

3 flights at the Charmouth Funfly. Very compact field but it served to keep the flying closer in. Had a great time although it was all a bit ominous on arrival.

Tony Rocco (Forza)

4 flights

Lots of wind and dark skies this morning which cleared up as we were all leaving.

Got to try Rich's Logo 700 again with the Cyclone blades and got a much better feel to it over the VTX. Just glides though the sky.

Kicked up some nice dust on the last flight.


Wed, 28 Sep 2016 11:30

Medway Massive RC

Tony Rocco (Forza)

3 flights

Tried a few things and got the heli back in one piece. A rather lame Piro globe that didn't get all the way around (but beyond my skill level anyway), Aileron Poledancer, Woo-Hoos and the usual suspects.

Medway Massive RC

Tony Rocco (Forza)

3 flights

Loving it more and more. Sticking with 1960 (should be 1950 but Mikado know best and it keeps changing to 1960).

Off the cuff I had a good few goes at a 'Serpent' as well as some Piroloops and Piroflip reversals. For a first attempt and no sim practice I'm chuffed with the results and the extra stability/ confidence that has come with flying the SAB on the lower HS.

Looking forward to seeing what I can come up with next 👍👍

Medway Massive RC

Tony Rocco (Forza)

3 flights

Put the Gens Ace packs back into action today and they held up great so I'm back to 3 flights a session again 😀

Flew on the lower 1950 & 1900 HS this afternoon and despite the winds the SAB performed amazingly well and still had plenty of guts. I'm still getting to grips with how it flies as it is a bit of an animal but with the additional stability of the lower HS I am getting more consistent with the Piroflip Reversals (the additional flight time from the packs may help).

A great session slightly marred by the occassional shadowing of the model when the clouds rolled through. I gave this a lot of consideration before buying but we can't have it all

Another couple in a rushed session this morning before kite flying with my daughter at the annual local festival.

Playing with headspeeds for a good overall setup. Also reduced the pitch from 12.5 to 12. This heli is very different to anything I've flown to date.

Medway Massive RC

Tony Rocco (Forza)

2 flights

Had to epoxy the tail boom spacer as I noticed the boom had been moving slightly after my 2 flights this morning. Also a rewire to get the optiguard working while I had the boom out of the way.

Wind had picked up. Tried some different headspeeds out (1900, 2000 & 2100).


Fri, 23 Sep 2016 09:15

Medway Massive RC

Tony Rocco (Forza)

A maiden/ optimiser flight and second flight on my G700C.

Very impressed with how it flies and worth the effort that went into the build.


Sun, 18 Sep 2016 09:40

Medway Massive RC

Tony Rocco (Forza)

3 flights

2 on the Dom and a flight on a Goblin 700 Comp. Looks like I made the right choice for my next model but time will tell.

2 nice flights on the Dom and a bonus last flight on Rich's Logo 700 :-)

Medway Massive RC

Tony Rocco (Forza)

2 flights

Another great couple of solo flights. Fudged the Tic Toc Square on the corner that cost me a heli last year but not bad for the first flight of the day.

On the second flight I had a try of a transition that Connor uses to great effect.




Sun, 11 Sep 2016 18:30

Medway Massive RC

Tony Rocco (Forza)

2 flights

Missed the second flying session but decided to fly solo. Really enjoyed the flights and sort of had a crack at a backward rolling circuit......albeit a small one.

Medway Massive RC

Tony Rocco (Forza)

2 flights

Fantastic session and got to see Rich's new Logo 700 in action. Had some great flights on the 700 Dom but still looking at moving on. Choices were Logo 700 or Goblin 700 Comp and it wasn't made any easier with both helis in atendance today.

Connor's flying was mediocre at best this morning but we are trying to get him back to competition best before the 3D Champs :-)

Much better session today and a good turnout. Didn't hit the Piroflip Reversals today but did try a Piro Tic Toc loop CW.

Medway Massive RC

Had my first try of the MSH Brain fbl unit. Flew on stock 3D preset and it performed well in the windy conditions. Rates could do with being a little faster but otherwise all very confidence-inspiring.

Slowly getting my confidence back up. Optimizer flight first then 2 just milling around flights.

2 flights

Got some really good mates and one has loaned me his Raptor E700 to use till I get back on my feet. Maidened it this evening and feel like I'm getting the confidence back now :-)

Another loaned flight of a Protos V2.

Pinched a flight on my mate's Protos Max V2


Sat, 6 Aug 2016 10:00

Ashford Radio Aeromodellers

Tony Rocco (Forza)

3 flights

Started off well with an optimizer flight and a nice 2nd flight although the tail fin stuck in the ground on a nose-in landing. One end of the TT unscrewed but at least the tail blades survived. I didn't even realise that Align had stopped pinning the ends of the TT!!

Was going to pack up and leave it there but was offered a TT out of someone else's model. Quickly swapped over, checked everything on the bench and before takeoff. Heli spooled up ok but then the tail let go......2 seconds and it was all over. Model wrecked, NEO case clips broken even though nothing hit it. Total disaster. Rechecked gears at home and still none the wiser as to why it let go???




Mon, 1 Aug 2016 10:00

Medway Massive RC

Tony Rocco (Forza)

6 flights

Poor visibility today and not a great deal of confidence behind the sticks. Took Connor's advice on the reversals and it's showing some promise. Also had a crack at WooHoos which may or may not be technically correct but look ok.

Oh yeah....my thumb slipped of the stick mid Piroflip but thankfully had my brain engaged.

Medway Massive RC

Tony Rocco (Forza)

5 flights

Great weather and a mammoth session at the Medway Massive. Had some handy tips from Connor and some superb flying on display. Had a go with his Blade 270 CFX....Piroflips really nice on stock settings but tail gain needs reducing.






Sat, 30 Jul 2016 14:00

Nice catch up session with Dean.

Really need to get a 3rd flight pack sorted!!!!!!

Another couple today and some moves are coming together nicely.


Wed, 27 Jul 2016 11:00

Medway Massive RC

Tony Rocco (Forza)

2 flights

Poor visibility and caught some of the showers but not a bad session. Trying to string things together and having another bash with the tail-wagging loop.


Tue, 26 Jul 2016 10:20

Medway Massive RC

Tony Rocco (Forza)

2 flights

Nice enough day for it. Attempted a tail-wagging loop on the first flight. Not tried these on the sim or IRL before but an opportunity arose and I went with it. Got one passable Piroloop out of 3 today.




Mon, 25 Jul 2016 10:50

Medway Massive RC

Tony Rocco (Forza)

2 flights

Down one pack as a cell went on one of my Gens Ace so down to 2 flights for now.

Not really with it today but trying a funnel figure 8 with piro crossover both sides. The return side is a bit of a mental stumbling block and very hesitated.

Didn't hit a single Piro loop today :-(


Sun, 24 Jul 2016 10:00

Ashford Radio Aeromodellers

Tony Rocco (Forza)

6 flights

Not a bad session at Ashford. The wind gradually picked up as the day went on.

Tony Rocco (Forza)

3 flights


Fri, 22 Jul 2016 10:00

Medway Massive RC

Tony Rocco (Forza)

3 flights

Carrying on with the regulars today. Didn't hit my Piroloops so well today but had a go at a funnel fig 8 nose down one side and also Piro tictocs with right rudder. Lots more Piroflip Reversal today (nearly 2 minutes worth in one flight) and a really nice final flight that, although unitidy, had a nice mix of stuff in it.





Thu, 21 Jul 2016 10:10

Medway Massive RC

Tony Rocco (Forza)

3 flights

3 back to back flights continuing with Piroflip reversals which are slowly looking better although I need to rethink the changeover as changing rudder one way gives an okish Pirowobble but the other results in a tilted disc which I just correct when doing my stronger side Piroflip. Weakside Piroflips are becoming more natural to the thumbs which is a bonus.

Also trying out some other little touches here and there and Piro Loops will be next on the agenda.

Not a bad morning overall.




Mon, 18 Jul 2016 10:00

Medway Massive RC

Tony Rocco (Forza)

3 flights

Went straight up on the first flight and into Piroflip reversals but later on in the flight I got it wrong and kept stirring away as I usually catch it but was just about to go in before rescue. Not enough punch for a decent climbout but the heli was saved and it only cost me a pinion as I snapped a tooth.

Went much better on the 3rd flight.
