This is a must see video, i bet you have never seen this in your life, i am not kidding. Tareq Alsaadi is smacking his Outrage Fusion electric 90 petty good around under a tree, making som circles around the tree pretty good stuff. But when you fly that low are a going to crash, yes Tareq crashes. When they collect the parts, one thing is missing, the rotorhead that is stuck in the tree amazing stuff :)
You have to see this video until 6 min into the video.
And this is the rotorhead coming down from the tree.
Side note, i am still waiting to test my new JS Frenzy 90 Torque Tube, it is snowing a lot here in Denmark it seem like it will never stop :(
I have just seen a great night blades video by Tom-Erik the 3DMasters winner 2009 from Norway. It is his first night blades flight, and he is flying real nice, and ends with a autorotation, the first auto i have seen with night blades. Nice going, we are waiting for more videos Tom :)
I have one thing you can put on your wish list and this is a nice compromise for both of you. An RC Helicopter calendar, did you see that? This are some guys (World Scenic Flights) have been traveling all over the world to take pictures of their helicopter with some great background scenery, support them it’s a great Christmas gift you will remember for a year :)
I am going to be honest with you, it is not very fun to have a Funtech muffler at this moment.
I have been struggling a bit with my muffler for the last couple of weeks, after I set my Freya up to run 1980RPM on the head, my Funtech muffler start to unscrew itself, not where it normally loosens but on the mount where the pipe is mounted see picture.
Naive as I am, I started to remount the pipe mount with some bigger screws 5mm, and that was no problem until I started to run the engine, after two thanks the mount was starting to loosen again. I cannot mount a 6mm screw and that would problem not help either. The washers in the muffler were not looking good either see picture.
Now this defect is after max 10 gallons of fuel, which is a pure design if you ask me!
Any sponsors with a new muffler for my OS 91SZ running 1980RPM on the head. I can add some advertisement on my site as payment?Contact me
One other think I noticed today was my tail blades are staring to make resonance sound, I was hovering inverted and with a 10 degree angle against the wind the tail blades was making a lot of noise. I have heard about this issue from a fellow pilot with standard Hirobo Freya tail blades. I guess this means that I need new tail blades to.
This is one of the frustrating times for a heli pilot when the hardware does not play along. I was flying really great today, practicing tic-toc and doing inverted hover in all directions. Now I am back to the bench fixing my helicopter and begging the wife for approval to by a new muffler. I must be great to be a sponsored pilot. :)
