Superb weather up here today with the forecast even better for tomorrow.
Few flights on the protos, still can’t get over the stumbling block of doing the downward section of the rolling loop :(

Quick flight on bills raptor after setting it up again from scratch. All is well with it

Early start, brilliant day of sunshine and light wind.
Mike lost his Goblin 380 early on and spent an hour looking for it. At the end of the day he drove out half a mile away and managed to find it in a yard, amazing.
The B machine is flying really well. I sorted a tail gain issue early on. It's still a bit whippy in the piros, but at least everything else is pretty good.
Back home to dismantle it and pack for the trip.

Managed to get upto the field after work for the first time this year. Wanted to test the protos to make sure all was ok for the weekend following the motor changeout.

Feels like a new helicopter again. Replaced the motor like for like but the power difference feels substantial.

Weather looking good for the weekend too:)

High wind, hail and snow, still a blizzard out there now. After yesterday's bench trimming, the heli is flying fine. It has a little shudder at high speed that might be related to head gain, but I'll play with it on a day more conducive to testing.

The A machine has been dismantled and made ready for packing. I'll fly and tune the B a bit more this week, and then I'll pack that too.

Woke up to howling wind and rain so headed to B&Q to get supplies for painting at home. The wind then died off and sun started to come through so scrapped the painting to go flying.

The protos has just had a new main belt fitted since I shredded one last weekend and sounded different for the first 6 flights. On the 7th flight whilst practicing 4 point tic tics I lost all drive. Auto it in and took it home to discover that the motor shaft has sheared off. Have a spare motor here but will need a new motor mount bearing.

Set up bills raptor Hughes and gave it a little test.

Would have thought it was summer up here today. Blue sky, sun out, very little wind made for a good day at the field. No hats or gloves today and got to the stage where you could take your jacket off.

2nd flight of the day with the protos suddenly gave off warning sounds. The main belt is shot. Stated to wonder why as it was replaced not long ago but then remembered I left the protos in the van last night and the temps must have made the belt loose :( didn’t have the spare with me so just flew the urukay.

Busy at the field which is a good sign, but you just end up chatting more than flying.

High of 3 degrees, wind, snow and rain. At least the flightline stayed clear. Flew the B machine a few times, but it needs the dampers replacing and a lot of trimming.

Great day at the field with very little wind, only downside being the temperature. Tweaking a few settings and just general flying. Left when I couldn't feel my feet due to the cold. Weather looking better tomorrow too so let's hope the forecast is correct :)

Usual Sunday crew out today,me,Mike w and Dave s.I don't normally enjoy flying when the wind is as strong as it was today,but I seemed to be able to make some decent attempts at some of the F3n moves so maybe I am improving a bit.

Sunny and windy. Windy enough to keep the fixies off the flightline, so I pretty much flew all day. Alan brought his 470 down, although he didn't get to fly. I took it for a test fly and a gust took it away. I literally had no control until the heli exited 20 metres downwind and I managed to get control back. I should have stopped right there, but I thought I'd give it another go, and 1 minute later another gust came through and put the heli in the fence. Idiot!
I'd set it up so docile for him to learn that the FBL simply didn't have enough throws to cope with being thrown around. Fortunately it's a hardy heli and it's just a few links and a main gear.
I carried on flying my 700 and had a really nice session. Finished up when it got too dark to fly any more.

Good flights at FARCC. Very windy but it was still a good day. Rob let me fly one of his E5SS's which was nerve racking, but very enjoyable. Thanks, Rob! I then practiced left to right autos with the nitro. Very fun. :)

Had a meeting with a contractor regarding works to the field so despite it being wet and windy decided to load the van with the models in case it cleared. Following the meeting we had a coffee before servicing the club generator then another coffee. By this time it had cleared up so had 4 flights before stopping for lunch.

After lunch was a different story with the wind, it had really picked up again and wasn't much fun to fly in. Another 4 flights then home. Urukay flying nice in the calm wind but a handful in the howling wind.

With the weather not looking good for tomorrow nipped up to the field after work to test out the urukay following rebuilding the head. Still has the bobble so have just out it down to headspeed. Upped the HS by 40rpm and much better.
Was dark after the 1 flight. :(
