Famous idiot!

This person takes the price for being the most famous RC Helicopter idiot around. I am very sorry to be this honest. What is he thinking? See video

One think is that you fly in a area where you should not be, flying a crowed play ground, with lots of kids on, that not okay. It is not safe to fly a helicopter in an area like that. You can have mechanic failure and hit somebody.

That’s one thing, but he is flying with traning skids on, indicating that he don’t know shit about flying yet, he cannot fly a helicopter and he is trying to fly that close to other people, in front of the flight line.!!!!

There is a reason why people is standing behind the pilot when you fly, that whey you the pilot can protect the ordains if you run they run.

Please think about your fellow pilot and do not ruin it for other pilot by doing stupid thinks. Thanks.

If you a looking for a place to fly, look at the field locator map and go fly at an approved flying field http://wmap.rcheli.dk/?club


National radio

I was on national radio the other day, it was a program about cooking. But one of the chef’s on the program was just starting to get a helicopter addiction, and that’s why they asked people to send in pictures of their helicopter big or small.

It was a phone interview and they asked about how I got started in the hobby, and what my wife was thinking about the hobby. I have been trying to find an archived recording from the radio station, of the interview but I don’t think they have one, sorry.

There was a vote on what helicopter was the coolest and my heli was in the vote, but the result was not that good, check it out , it was not a fair match.

[Site Note]
I have just redesigned the pilot locator page and I think it is very nice now, now I can truly handle unlimited pushpins on the map, I have change the design to use AJAX/PHP. And I have made a simple clustering technique to be able to show a lot of pins on the map. Without the map being slow and heavy to maneuver.

Furthermore I have added about 2000 flying fields in the US only, this is really great and if you see a missing fields please don’t hesitate to register the flying field on the map. Check out the new fields here http://usmap.rcheli.dk/?club

On the new design you just have to be aware of one think, if you see this image :
not viewing all pins
The image indicates: at your current view you don’t see all pushpins registered. The maximum pushpins you can view are 300. If you would like to see all pushpins you have to zoom in at a specific area, until you see this image :
viewing all pins on the map
Then you see all pins in that area. That’s what’s called clustering.

And you can still do all the old thinks like: get a driving direction for the flying fields, a direct link to one pin, a link to show only clubs or shops, and I have improved the mailing service, now the mails you can send to you fellow pilots have a nicer design. And the pushpins load dynamically when you navigate the map, that way you can see pins all over the world on the same map without post back.

I can’t get any fly time around here, this shitty weather I am NOT happy. Please please please can the weather just clear then I can fly tomorrow.

But time is not wasted around here, inspirited by another Danish map site I have developed a driving direction for all the clubs and shops on my map, hope you find it use full. http://wmap.rcheli.dk/?club=1

Here is how it works, on the pushpin hover text for clubs, you can see a textbox and a “Route” button. If you enter your pinid in the textbox and push “Route” button then you will get the driving directions from you to the club. Note if you have security set on your browser then you will be prompted for popup windows error, if you accept you get a turn by turn driving description in a new window.

Here is how the pushpin looks, try it out.

The fieldbox is driving

Now the Fiat 127 is fixed. I got a new gear box and clutch in the car and the engine is running, well it’s running. I have to change the ignition system. And then I can drive it in rain too, not like now where I lose some of the cylinders when driving in rain.

As you can see on the pictures I was out flying yes today, I still have some issues with setting the mix on the engine after I have installed a governor. And when I was out flying last time I had some issues with getting the mix right, but I found that I had mixed up the high and the middle needle when I was trying to adjust the engine, that’s way I could not get the engine to run clean.

Yestoday I almost got the engine tuned right but not quit, when I was switching from idl1 to idl2 and gave it full throttle the engine died on me. About 7 meters over the ground right in the bad height for an autorotation. But finally all the years of practices paid off. I managed to auto it down with only a broken land skid not the best landing but hay it’s a cheap repair.

SiteNote : I have removed some of my Google adds well to be honest they don’t pay enough, compared to the space and load time they take on the page. For some of you that maybe interested in Adsence from Google here is some data from my site. I have average 120 unique visitors on my site a day, I have a CTR at about 5,5% and the pay is about 120$ every 4 month, not really something that can motivate me. But now you can chose if it’s something you want to use.

Check out the fieldbox, I can fit one more helicopter in the back, any sponsors for a exstra heli?
