Finally managed to kill the drive belt on the protos. Had been showing signs of wear for a few weeks now but the aberdonian in me didn't want to change it till it burst. No panic though as I had the urukay in the van to fly but I had left the battery trays at home. Quick drive home to get them and I was back in the air. Was good to fly a nice gentle Heli for a change. 1 flight with Al's 600, tail. Still a bag of shyte, slowly losing it with this Heli but the challenge continues

Lovely weather today, was a crisp -6 this morning but didn't feel like it due to hardly any wind. Clear blue sky and nice crisp snow on the ground and the temps got up to a scorching -2.
After going over the connections in the protos powerbus and esc the problems from yesterday seem to have gone, no loss of power at all today so although I never noticed anything wrong with the wiring something must have fixed it.
Had one flight of Bills trex as we shifted it onto his new 28x Tx. First time I have held a 28x and it is a heavy transmitter with the twin batteries but I liked how butter smooth the gimbals were. Finished off the day trying to get the tail wag sorted in Al's trex 600, slowly but surely it is getting there.
Off all next week so hope the weather stays good so I can get plenty flying in :)

Nice flying conditions although cold on the feet with some 6" of snow underfoot. First couple of flights went well then I started to have issues with power, during tic tocs it felt like the power was severely lacking and on the 4th flight I only managed 1.5minutes before the Heli would barely maintain a hover. Still had 70% left in the battery. Suspecting the batteries being cold I headed home for lunch and charged up the batteries in the house.
Back at the field the first flight went fine but the next three you could feel and hear the power loss, seems to get worse inverted and also on the downward leg of a pogo so I'm thinking there is a loose wire somewhere.

Another good day at the field. 8 flights on the protos and also a couple of flights on other folks helis to set them up. Al's trex 600 has a severe tail wag which he can't get rid of, next up is to change the unnamed servo out for something decent and see it if helps. Bills trex is flying really well.

All snow has thawed out on the field. With clear sky, little wind and a tropical 8 degrees temperature it made flying conditions ideal. Managed 7 flights before the forecast rain started. Looking good forecast for tomorrow too :)

Great flying conditions although cold on the feet with the snow on the ground. Rolling loops coming on but still get the fear when rolling towards the hard stuff.

Yet again cold and windy but clear blue sky. 4 flights on the protos and 1 flight of Bill's Trex 600n which he bought off ebay. Very clean helicopter which has been well specced, well built and setup by its previous owner.

Switched to Vbar Control so today was the first few flights with it on the protos. First flight was good but I ran the battery flat :( didn't have a timer set as I had the current sensor running however I had forgot to activate the alarms so bit of a schoolboy error. Second flight onwards it did exactly what it says on the tin.

Feels like it flys nice and smooth but I need to up the agility as it seems lame compared to the Spartan. The tail is far slower and I'm almost at max rate. It also had 50% expo as standard which is far too much for me. Spent the final couple of flights tweaking away. Nice day for flying but got cold towards the end.

Busy day at the club today. Superb weather, blue sky, mildish, zero wind. Better than most of our summer flying days. Spent some time on the airwolf, tail is much better hold now and started to take it flying properly. Not sure if just due to the size/weight of it but it feels very disconnected to fly. Hope to sort that out next time out.

Managed a few flights on the protos, couple on the urukay as it hadn't been flying much lately and also helping out some members setups.

On the first flight the power was well down on what it normally is and could hear a whine from the protos. Landed to find a lot of black dust around the tail box, turns out the belt had come off the pulley and was down the side. Flicked it back on and back to its usual power. Couple of flights and then home to babysit.

Blue sky hardly a breath of wind but bloody cold. 4 flights on the protos before my Tx battery alarm went off and some more tinkering with George's airwolf. Still can't get the tail to hold solid regardless of mechanical or electronic gain???

Got it back into his workshop and look to have found the cause, the tail servo clamp has not been holding tight and allowing the servo to flex. It's in a shit of a place so a couple hours worth of swearing and scratching arms and it's now firmly in place. Will have to wait till the weekend before we can test it out again as back to work tomorrow :(

Bitterly cold at 4 degrees and poor light :( still managed a couple of flights before the feeling in the fingers left.

Day off work tomorrow so if the weather gods are in my favour then I should get some decent flying in :)

Quite windy but headed up for some flights. With the recent weather the field was very wet and flooded in most places. Would have been better with a rc boat today :(

Up to the field early as had a lot on today. Few flights in decent enough weather then home for daddy day care. Managed to get back up in the afternoon for some more flights although the wind had picked up by then.

Attended the SAA training day but unfortunately it was very strong winds and mostly horizontal rain. Managed one flight but caught up on the excellent banter from the West Calder members which made the trip worthwhile.

Couple of flights with the protos to warm up before more tuning on the Airwolf. Still struggling to get the tail to behave and although we had cured the power loss from the turbine it came back on the last flight :(

Up to the field to continue with some maintenance of the facilities. Managed to sneak in a couple of flights on the protos before leaving. One of my packs starting to show signs of wear and will need replaced soon. Couple of fixed wing members there also

Breezy but managed a few flights along side some site maintenance. Fitted the 105mm tail blades to the urukay and increased the tail gain. Seems to hold better in the aeros

Couple of flights with the protos to get warmed up before the remaiden of George's Vario Airwolf since fitting the flybarless head to it. Turns out that we were flying it with the tail & head gain at 100% but hovered fine until started to lose power. We have located the problem and it was air bubbles getting into the fuel lines. These have since been replaced and we are currently awaiting the next test flights to sort out the gains.

Good days flying apart from the piroflip auto which i managed to just make it to the field but damaged the landing gear on the protos. A pitch link was also sheared in the impact which surprised me??
