Up to the field with nice conditions just cold but nobody else there. Had 4 flights but wasn't really feeling it today probably due to the works night out last night. Home to watch soccer Saturday.

Leicester Model Aero Club

RichardV

8 flights

Was supposed to be decent day. Got a few flights in and then the rain came down. Alan showed up with his 470, but it was too wet for flying. Went home early. The forecast for tomorrow now looks wet too 😠

Aberdeen Aeromodellers

P1Andy

4 flights

Remaiden of the protos following its yearly maintenance. Heli was completely stripped, belts changed, bearings inspected (surprisingly most in superb condition). Replaced tail bearings, main thrust bearings, dampers and all servos stripped and greased. Leo replaced the tail boom as it was slightly crimped at the end which made the belt ride to the side causing noises and dust.

Flew well and sounds really sweet in the air now.

Few flights on the Urukay. Field still covered in snow and the car park is like an ice rink, could hardly walk from the car.

Busy doing maintenance on the protos so took the urukay up to the field since the weather was good.

VERY cold 20 degree flight this morning before work. With a very cold wind chill to add to it.

Aberdeen Aeromodellers

P1Andy

7 flights

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

12 flights

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 :)

1 flights

Just 1 flight in the snow. The flying was fun, but the heli came down a bit damp, so I didn't do it again.. Just dried the heli in the workshop and called it a day.

Nene Valley Aeromodellers

Jonah dave

6 flights

As it was so cold just went to my nearest club for a couple of hours, found now I have a heated transmitter mitt cold weather flying is no longer a problem as the main problem was fingers getting so cold you couldn't control the heli properly.My new Blast xk110 turned up from China yesterday so gave that a maiden, it seems to fly well but was stuck in stabilization mode most of the first flight until I figured out you have to alter the tail gyro gain to get it into 3d mode.Only have one battery for it,I did order more so they must be coming in a separate shipment.

Michael "Shaggy" Parker

1 flights

Flying before work while it was snowing quite a bit.


Sat, 9 Dec 2017 11:00

Aberdeen Aeromodellers

P1Andy

9 flights

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.
