It has been sometime since I have had a video recorded of me doing some flying. I was just goofing around with this flight mostly just getting some stick time since I hadn’t flown in a while. The goal was to get a few flights then to record a video with the Outrage Velocity 90. Unfortunately the 90 went in do to a servo failure in flight, that’s for another post later maybe. Anyhow this video came out pretty good and shows a few new things I have been working on so I decided to post it.

I have decided to open up a forum in addition to the blog. I thought it could be useful for all of us to share our hobby as well as a place to help one another. The content obviously is non existent at the moment and I hope that all will join in and start populating the forums and help spread the word.
As with every year I attended the NEHC Heli Phenomenon. This year I only attended on Saturday, the event was a huge success and was amazing. The night flying this year was insane and worthy of the wait until dark. I did do some flying and I know there are some photos out there but I am not sure if there are any videos. As I was representing Outrage and Morgan fuels I flew my Outrage Helis and enjoyed doing so.
I also took a ton of video which can be found on my YouTube page.
Here are a couple photos of the Outrage tent with my helis.
While at the NERFF Fun Fly in New York I was asked to help clear up how the Torque Tube gets placed inside the boom for the Fusion 50. The confusion was around the fact that the bearings were placed in two different locations. The manual does state how to assemble and where to place them but I thought this video would help even more as it is visual.
I have been using Google+ for about 1 week now and I am really liking the clean fresh interface. I am looking to start building a R/C Helicopter Community as well as make some new friends.
Right now the only way to get into Google+ is by invite. Want an invite? Use the Contact Me tab on this site and put Google+ as the subject and be sure to provide me with the email address you would like the invite to be sent to. Let’s start building a community that we can all share our hobby on.
I took the AVANT Aurora out today and put in 5 good flights. My friend Steve took several photos today. The photos were taken at a safe distance and a large amount of Zoom was used to bring this photo up close. No one was ever in harms way.
This is my favorite photo.
About two weeks ago I went out and flew the AVANT Aurora around. I put in two flights with no problems. She flew great, I had to richen the carb just a bit because it was going lean. This was done during flight two, the machine had a noticeable power increase. During the attempt to start her for flight three there was an odd sound coming from the clutch bell area. It sounded like the Clutch broke one of it’s shoes. I went home and ordered a clutch, problem is there are nearly no AVANT parts available anywhere. I found one and finally received it the other day.
I took the heli apart to install what I suspected as the issue. Sure enough the clutch shoe snapped. This heli has just over 100 flights now and has been amazing since day 1.
Here are a couple pics of the broken clutch.
