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.

Gloomy skys, not great visibility but still a nice day to fly as there was little wind so didn't feel to cold.My old computer died over Xmas so haven't been able to Sim and learn anything new.Dave s showed me the new F3n manoeuvres and we both had a go at the new Rough Diamond manoeuvre which we both felt is something we could master in the future.Usual Sunday crew out today, Me, Mike w and Dave s.

Didn't get going to early, still felt a bit delicate from night before.Arranged to meet Dave s and Mike w at Mk, beautiful sunny mourning but as I drove to the club the skys darkened with heavy constant rain.Looked a waste of time so stopped and rang Dave s who was already there, he said it was brightening up there so took a chance and carried on to the club.Glad I went as turned out to be a cracking afternoon of flying and chat with Dave and Mike.Really going to try and fly more this year,

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.

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.

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.😀

Had a go at the set manoeuvres required for F3n,made a right hash of most of it.When you have only one shot at it and its got to be right its not so easy.I hope more practice will iron out any inconsistency.Me and Dave S tried calling for Richard, don't think he was impressed with are efforts,can't remember exactly what he called us but it wasn't very complementary.Mike S had a little mishap resulting in little damage.Mike W had some bigger mishaps.

Good day of practice today at a windy Mk heli club.Flew to music for the first time ever which I found fun and called set manoeuvres for Dave S realised how difficult its going to be to complete 8 set manoeuvres in one flight required for F3n with the short flight times of an electric.

Wind coming from opposite direction to normal, so made for good practice on my set manoeuvres.Found I could actually do a pirro loop in the other direction from normal.

Practicing F3n set manoeuvres with Richard V and Dave S.Found out is ok being able to do manoeuvres any where in the sky but when you try and start them in a certain position and keep them centralized as required for F3n its a hole different ballgame.Much more practice required

Been struggling to do rolling loops, Richard V noticed a problem in my heli setup than could have been hindering my progress.I've improved the setup on the heli so hoping it will help me crack the rolling loop manoeuvre.Richard V was entertaining us with some risky autos at the end of the day, he rolled out of one really close to the ground but the wind had changed direction and the heli went in, luckily the damage wasn't too bad.

Got up Mk heliclub early for me, intending to get more flights in..Did 6 flights practicing piro loops any piro funnels and rubbish attempts at rolling loops ,which I always lose momentum at the top.My piro loops now go over the top better after some advice from Richard V.Recharged my batteries only for rain to arrive so end of session.
