    The heli is done, got the last ajustment done with the eletronics and it is now ready to fly. I had some problems fitting the govenor sensor and the caberator with the pump on the OS 91HZ-R engien, i move the sensor to the other site, i hope the muffler don’t get too hot and burn the wire.

    Other the that i was a fairly easy assembly, 3 night is in my world fast :)

    Now i am ready for the test fligt, it is starting to snow here :( keep a look out for a complete review on

    Here are some of the last pictures, for all the pictures go here


    And the final results

    JS Frenzy 90 TZ-V2, day 4

    I would have liked this to be the last build day, but unfortunate for me it is not the case. I have mounted servo horns and made most of the setup, but currently I am trying to fit the governor sensor and figure out the GV-1 setup with the transmitter, I can’t get the RPMs on the Futaba 8FG to fit the RPMs in the GV-1.

    Look at all the pictures from the last days 4 here.

    I discovered another problem today, i recently got a new car, sold the old Fiat 127. But i have a problem with the new car :(
    Current build status:
    The next couple of days, I am doing non helicopter related stuff :(

    Just got a Futaba 8FG TX

    I just sold my old Futaba FF9 35Mhz to get a new and improved Futaba 8FG 2,4Ghz. Why? i was the only guy at the file with an antenna, and if i would like to fly some electric powered helicopter in the future a 2,4 system is a must have. The new small electric helicopter are fun and my transmitter was one think holding me back.

    Back to the 8FG, a nice transmitter with a compacted design and a nice balanced transmitter. Some new features that i haven’t been using before like the virtual cyclic ring, a nice improvement in my opinion. I haven’t got the transmitter for that long but it seem like a good product and i am definitely looking forward to using it this season.

    Helibatic 2 is over

    Well now Helibatic 2 2009 is over and I ended last position AGAIN, it is not a good year for me :) What can I say if you don’t practice you don’t win. That’s a lesson to you all.

    I was struck by a little bad luck, when I was in my free style flight I was trying to make a rainbow up against wind, and the engine lost power. It was in the last part of my flight and I end with a nice autorotation right in the circle. There was a lot of comment asking me if I didn’t have a governor installed, but the answer is yes I have a governor installed, but there was a small problem with the governor, see picture.

    governor sensor broken

    The sensor was broken off !!

    I have posted some pictures, most of them are from my friend Kurt, and he is still learning about his fancy camera that is why some of the pictures are dark :)
