Got some good practice in today but can not fly at Mk club until after 1 so the day is over before you know it.

Weather wasn't great, mainly went up the club to pay my Bmfa fees.Weather had brightened up a bit by the time I got to the field so managed to get a few flights in.Only the two Mikes, Alex, Duncan and me flying today.

Cold but lovely and sunny with little wind at Mk club today.Enjoyed my flying again after a few weekends of battling strong winds.Practiced my set manoeuvres and did a flight to music.Duncan O and Wayne turned up, they were testing what many people have been wanting for a long time, gears for the Trex 700 to speed the tail up at slower head speeds.Seemed to work well from the flights I watched and also increased the flight times.Duncan seems to have been inspired by Kenny Ko recently and has been flying very low and fast but with complete control, very demoralizing to watch sometimes.Nearly forgot Mike w had a crash.

I went though to MK to drop the trophy off. I had one flight on the 700 to make sure the servos were OK, but it wasn't worth flying any more until I've finished the geometry fiddling.
Alessio let me fly his new VBarred 700x. He's mode 3 and it really is amazing how you can bind your own radio in a few seconds and have his setup with your switch layout ready to fly. He had a head wobble during piros but that was sorted by lowering the head gains.

Started off fairly well, although the heli feels too loose, doesn't track well and seems to give a lot of unnecessary disk movement in piros. It really is time to do some serious maintenance to tighten everything up, and spend some proper time tuning it. Got to get the 2nd heli flying as well. My rubbish flying was highlighted when DO arrived and showed us all how it should be done, aggressive, fast and big.
I have some leave coming up, so gonna spend the whole week sorting the girls out for next year.

Knew it would be colder today so charged batteries up to use my heated transmitter mitt.Got to the field and realised I had forgot to bring it.Wind was a bit less than yesterday but found flying even harder as the wind was blowing straight into your face.I noticed yesterday my Trex 550 has developed the tailboom bouncing up and down,I put it down to the strong wing yesterday but its still doing it in lighter winds today so need to investigate that.Not the most successful weekend of flying.

Highlight was Dave s excitement of showing me his super new battery checker, which when he plugged a battery into immediately blew up.😀

Surprisingly busy considering the forecast of grey skies and wind. I had a real connection with the heli early on, couldn't put a foot wrong even in the wind. Not having my thermals, the cold got to me eventually and I called it a day. Nice session.
