Now the video is up, you really have to check this great night flying out, two guys making the crowed wild. They a banging there landing skids on the ground resulting in broking landing skids, how do you land a helicopter with no landing gear ? Watch the video, kids don’t try this a home they are highly professional rc helicopter pilots.

One week!

One week before I am going to travel to the local competition Helibatic here in Denmark, and my helicopter is not flying!!! Last time I was out flying was a week ago, my clutch broke. When I tried to remove the hex starter from my Freya to get the engine and the clutch out, the screw in the hex starter was ripped and I was unable to get it off.

The dead screw

The only solution was to drill it out that combined with holidays here in DK where the stores are not open, and me missing some sharp drills resulted in a week of frustration and anger. I hate when stuff like this compromises my flight time and a week before my first competition this year.
Not a good start.
