Title: Freestyle Flyers Lounge- Laying the Smack !
Post by: bathmagic on October 29, 2010, 08:47:47 AM
Seeing we now have a field i thought i would make a lounge for us all to chat in.

"Australian Freestyle Flyers inc"

Our new field has to be given the OK by the VMAA yet, which will be no drama as it meets all criteria.

It will be another week until we have the documents all processed then we can fly here

The filed is on a PRIVATE residence at,

180 Bayview road Officer Victoria

THERE ARE A FEW RULES HERE GUYS AND WE NEED TO OBEY THEM PLEASE !

Guys we MUST travel slowly up the road so we do not induce dust and annoy the last house at the gate. PLEASE DONT DRIVE FAST

Once you get to the gate the road forks, take the LEFT track and follow it through the tress, where it clears turn up the hill to the left, the field is at the top of the hill

We will have 6-8 flight lines here with trees for shade!

More info and some pics will be up next week

There will be a working bee within the month to mow the grass and set up the "Shed" etc etc

That is great news Dale, thanks to you, Fredo and Biggles for getting us this far.

Any chance you could pin the field on google and put the link here, it is hard to work out which paddock on google earth from your description.

A couple of other questions.

Is the field accessible at all times, or is there some limit?
Are there any locks on the gates?
I am guessing there is no power available but just thought I would check, it will make a difference to what charging solution I end up buying soon.
When are we planning the first club meeting to get the admin part out of the way?

Let us know when it is all signed and sealed so I can go and have a look in person.

//Dennis.

Dennis,

That brings up an intersteing point.

Bruce and i were there today, Iwas flying and burnt 3/4 of a gallon today on the fury 55.

we spoke about having a meeting of the members quite soon and discussing all the things the need to be done so we can work a plan out.

So how about guys we have a working bee and fly afterwards on sunday next week, say at a 9am start,
please bring brushcutters , I will bring up the ride on an probably a slasher avalible so we should get it cleaned up in a couple of hours with a few of us.

please post here if you can make it.

I will be there, my brush cutter and mower are both electric so won't be much help, I don't even have a proper shovel. :o Thats what you get from living in a townhouse, but I can add some man power.

Can you give us some directions on which gate we go in, is it at the bend after the house on the left near the A marker on the map above?

Hi all,

I'm only just kicking off with helis after many years of thinking about it. Dale has let me know about this club after I posted in the startupTorque.

I don't have much in the way of usefull tools but I'm more than happy to chop in and give a hand in any way I can on the day.

I'm yet to get a real heli. I'm flying a co-axial and a blade 120sr which Nitros and large Electrics snack on.

I dopped in to the lilydale club last week so it wouldbe good to meet some more heli flyers and check out some more gear.

What time is the working bee kicking off?
Title: Freestyle Flyers Lounge- Laying the Smack !
Post by: bathmagic on November 09, 2010, 07:15:56 AM
9am guys is when i will be there

we want to get everyone there and have a meet and greet day along with everyone to give input on the layout of the area
Title: Freestyle Flyers Lounge- Laying the Smack !
Post by: bathmagic on November 09, 2010, 08:21:53 AM
Directions….

 

 Take the freeway towards Pakenham from dandenong direction.

 

After you pass Berwick turn off at the Officer turn off (left off highway) and follow the old princess highway towards Officer. Turn left at Bayview road (the first road before the buildings of the Officer township) and follow the road to the end (through the dirt road cross road),

 

KEEP YOUR SPEED DOWN AFTER THE CROSSROAD TO MINIMISE DUST PLEASE.

 

The road will end (house on the left) and there is a gate, go through the gate and take the IMEDATE LEFT TRACK once you come to the clearing take the LEFT track up the hill.

Sounds like you are offering. ;) Seriously it's up to us to deciede what we want to do, if you have an idea for a logo, draw it up and let's have a look at it. We will get out of the club whatever we put into it. :D

I will stick my hand up to set up a web site For the club as we start to get things together.

Hi guys.

First thing

From what I can see, full kudos to the likes of Dale, Fredo and Biggles for getting the ball rolling......but also recognition should also go to the founding members who stepped up to the plate back in july to get  AFF financial and recognized by the VMAA ............. Top effort guys ...........

Secondly I had hoped to swing buy and lend a helping hand this Sunday, but no can do ...... Work ....... But if you guys have another one in December then hopefully I can help out then.... And hopefully by then I'll have the coin to become a member as well.

Keep up the great work guys, awesome job so far.

David

It was great to get out there, see the field and meet some faces. I'll be looking to tap the knowledge and experience of many of you in coming months when I get my first CP heli in the air (or attempt to).

Here's some of the photos I took of the field today (a work in progress).

Who's looking after the memberships? Time I got payed up!

Title: AFF "The panoramic heli field"
Post by: Fredo on November 15, 2010, 07:32:52 AM
Hi fellow AFF Members
 Well after an overnight down pour Saturday which flooded many other fields we arrived Sunday at 9 am with optimism in mind. Walking from our lower car park the group eagerly made it way to the  top (Pitts) and viewed what could be. Mind you its not possible to see all our flight areas in one glance as it’s a panoramic area as the pits are situated on top of hill with a view many would envy. We held an informal meeting during the day agreeing to the layout of the field which includes 5 flight lines and a hover area for the novices.  All were tested in the afternoon making for some of the most exciting flying you will ever see.
Picture this in your mind as at our field when you hover at waist height the ground is another 2 or so meters below with a soft carpet of grass just in case .
Its early days yet but with what a small dedicated group can do in a short morning working bee and then to stand back and see and envision what CAN BE is outstanding.   Thanks to all who attended our first day and looking forward to seeing you at our field soon.

Guys,

Again thanks for your input yesterday, It was great to see a number of new faces so keen!

The bobcat will be up in the next couple of weeks to get the driveway sorted out and the landing pads manicured.

Then it will be time for a get together !

Thanks again to Fredo for lunch and everyone who went and bought the club tools!

Zurk none of the members will be there tomorrow to sign you in and being private property, only club members are allowed on the property, if your found there without being a member we will loose the flying site and you may be charged with tresspassing.
The owner is a personal friend of mine and has gone out of his way for ME.

We would love to have you as a member and fly with us but you need to follow the rules and be a paying member so the owner and you are covered by insurance.

Without being rude no membership no fly, please respect that this is not rays park!

Hi Jamie,

Sorry to hear of your misshap, if i had a TT on the Protos I would have had problem on my first landing on Sunday.

If you are still using that "rug" to land and take off from take care, I have seen a few people hit negative pitch and lift their landing mat into the rotors.

Hi all,

With the lack of power at the new club site I did a bit of searching and came up with a deep cycle 155Ah battery for a very good price. It's a US made quality brand but is old stock so they are running them out from a place in Breaside. Only issue is the weight, it is 40kg so will be a bit of a pain lifting in and out of the car but will charge big packs all day. You can pull 75amp out of it for an hour or 8-10 charges of my 10s 4000 packs to use about 50% capacity (for long life) and should last for at least 3-5 years if looked after. The iCharger 3010 I am waiting for will also make a good charger to re-charge it after a day at the field.  

They are normally $300-$400 for this size but I got it for $200 including the 1 year warrantee. There is only one left in stock so if anyone wants the info drop me a PM and I will give you the details.

Post by: bathmagic on November 19, 2010, 08:04:35 PM
Sorry to be the fun police but we are only allowed to fly after 9 am guys

Bruce, Jamie and myself we out flying tonight,

Richard has been on the digger and has done one landing pad, about 8-9 m in a circular shape and it looks great!

So were going to do 4 flight lines and one beginner area/ 3D flint line when we hold an event.

Within the next couple of weeks we are going to have a get together, probably at my factory in dandeong if that's ok with everyone, bring your indoor machines!

This way we can get membership cards and get a copy of the rules etc and discuss anything anyone has ideas on so were all working towards the one goal.

Overall the field is coming up better than any of us thought.

On hill? But it's or sum now it's cut back and cleaned up.
We have even worked out were to put the shed and a covered BBQ area.

I will have to call Richard and see if he will have the area done with his bobcat.

Post by: wyld on November 22, 2010, 09:25:27 PM

seriously, can you get vice grips on the head of the bolt for leverage as you turn it?
Title: Freestyle Flyers Lounge- Laying the Smack !

Title: Freestyle Flyers Lounge- Laying the Smack !
Post by: Fredo on November 23, 2010, 09:43:35 PM
Id say the nuts striped. If you have vice grip pliers clamp to the nut and jam a thin screwdriver between the pliers and head while turning the bolt slowly applying leverage to the nut.If that  doesnt work you could dremmel the nut off,
Title: Freestyle Flyers Lounge- Laying the Smack !
Post by: jamiep on November 23, 2010, 09:59:00 PM

I compared it to a honda 20i (craig had these) this is double wattage/KVA and elec start, actually not as loud.
Only dowside is that i don't think there is a economy mode where it only runs as fast as it needs to.

$2000 for the honda $699 for the ebay one.  Has 1 year warranty.  I might only use it once a month if that.

The spec.s are impressive, especially for that price. The blurb says
Quote
and will run for up to 5 hours on a single fill of fuel when used with the Economy Switch feature
so perhaps it does have that feature?

The concept of the integral wheels and handle is good but the implementation looks too flimsy and likely not much use outdoors.

Interesting note about "Based on HONDAâ„¢ Technology", wonder what that means?

Look forward to reports of how well it lives up to its spec.s and how it is going in a year's time :)

Post by: beans07 on November 29, 2010, 05:36:52 PM
I bought one of these brands a couple of years ago and it worked well (1000w) for like $200. They are copies of the good ones like yamaha and honda. I took mine to a bloke who has an oscilliscope and he checked the pure sine wave and it wasn't as good or clean as a honda but was good enough and would hurt my power supplies. Like a lot of chinese cloned things there specs were slightly different in real life especially fuel consumption and dba rating but I have used mine and didn't have the cash to get anything else at the time.

It's a bit like the weed eaters, a cheap one works okay but you know that a still or honda are still going strong 20 years from now and parts are easily available. The camping and 4wd forums have many threads about ebay generators. Most of the blokes I know into 4wd and camping all have ended up buying honda or yamaha.

Everyone is very enthousiastic about the whole club and field

Hey Dale
Good to see things moving ahead. Can't say that I'll get to too many meetings,(or for that matter do much flying). I did my membership more out of support for what yourself, Bruce and Fred are doing. But, who knows, I may get there one day. Meantime go hard or go home.
Cheers

Hi all.....
I wouldn't mind getting some live updates going from the flight deck....
On the basis that most people now have smart phones and a large percentage of those run a Facebook account and with App installed (Dale love the face shot without the beard), I thought a Facebook Group could work well as a Live Updates site for us. As such I have setup a trial group on Facebook to try out and if no objections I can hand over admin to the committee to keep running or close if not wanted. Group is called "AFF Live from the hill" just type this in the search field on Facebook and request to join the group. Current settings for the group is private.
The group has a benefit of LIVE Posts, Shared Calendar, Shared Doc's, Shared Photo's, Video and chat. Really Easy to facilitate multimedia updates through smart phone App's.

Cheers
Andre

Will try to get the field mowed again this week ....
Currently flying John Deer LT155 gas powered with electric star,  38" rotor, 2D VBarless with Mode 2 fight controls. Mikado Logo badges for coolness...... :-)

Thanks again Jamie for your help today checking out my heli build. I've sorted out the programming for the CCPM on the tx. All seems to be ok now. The spare parts for the tail arrived today as well so I can strip that down and rebuild getting the smooth action that is needed.

I've also picked up some good tips for mountng the esc and protecting the gyro cables.

I do believe the thing might see air under it's skids soon.

zurk, I'm using a DX8. So far its only seen action with a Blade 120sr and Phoenix.

Jamie has an allergic reaction to Specktrum radios. He breaks out in a rash. ;)

Today I had the Trex 550 on my kitchen table finishng off installing the radio gear and testing stuff. I connected the motor for the first time AFTER ensuring throttle hold was set.

HOWEVER, I only had throttle hold active for the sim, not the real model (was checking how it works) so when I accidentally bumped the throttle I had a "change of underwear" moment. Luckily I was not within strinking distance, and nothing else was either.

BIG lesson learnt!

I think it will be a great place for a glider maybe not as large as yours Mustard but it will only be possible for a club member to fly there as you know we are a heli club first.  And by the way you may have noticed we have a resident EAGLE patrolling our sky and taking charge of any thermals, This just adds a touch of class to our club . On a clear day I recon you can see the Bay...

Post by: jamiep on December 12, 2010, 01:49:35 PM
I used to fly gliders a fair bit and its not uncommon to be flying with 1 or 2 eagles u just follow them around to get the thermals and hope they dont decide to attack the plane

Thanks for the great day today, I really enjoyed it and it was good to meet some new faces behind the archeli names.
 
My initial impression of the site was a little different from what I had expected but after the first flight getting use to the layout of the field it felt very comfortable and enjoyable flying off the hill :D
 
You guys have done a fantastic job getting the club off the ground and making making visitors feel welcome.
 
Anytime you need someone to assist with flight training or bronze and gold wings testing just give me yell, I'm happy to help.
 
 
Cheers,
 
Matty

Got up to the field at 9am (extremely optimistic & wishful thinking). Not a soul in sight, just the misty rain. Got to say though that it looks great up there.

If it suns up a bit in the arvo I'll be back.

At least you guys have a chance to fly between showers. I'm stuck down here in Lorne on a beach holiday with a couple of bored kids dodging showers. Might get some fishing in tonight with a couple of bourbons, even though it is illegal to drink in public places here.

Best of luck with the weather tomorrow guys, hope it all goes well, sorry I am missing it.

Well I got my T-rex 550e in the air (barely) for a good solid 90 seconds this afternoon  hehe :)

I had the wind in one ear and advise from Alan in the other and the wind won. I drifted and put it down too far away and too hard. Striped a front TT gear. $10. It was good to get the first flight out of the way. I was pretty nervous. It took me 2 hours to complete the repair but overall I'm happy with the day.

The field looks awesome. Bruce you have to slow down mate. You worked like a trojan the whole time I was there today. I couldn't clear the junk fast enough with you and Jamie soldiering away ;)

Your commitment to getting the place ship shape is obvious, and appreciated by all I'm sure.

Alan thanks for your help checking over my heli. If you hadn't found the tail servo needed to be reversed...... Hmmmm.... would have been interesting.

Hope to get back tomorrow.

Brent, no I still haven't got the tail wag sorted. I'm convinced the problem is with my handiwork at this stage and not the gyro. I'll get a few others to check out my tail assembly at the field and see what the opinions are.

Had my first forward flights today (3) after endless hovering till now trying to sort out the gyro. The tail wagged but I was too ecstatic about the successful flights to be worried about it :D

I'll probably be at the field before lunch. All going well, I will recharge and be back in the afternoon too.

Yes mate, it was just a simple binding problem. I also took the advise on offer to disingage the motor first. It occured to me at the last minute that this is most definetely a good idea. I changed my chipped tail blades as well.

I did fly again that day but not up at the club. I got another half hour in the air flying circuits and hovering tail and nose in so next session will be up the hill again. Hope to be up there Fri/Sat morning.

Ok guys, I've had an email from Vmaa, people are on xmas break, when they get back it will be processed then sent to Maaa they will do there bit send it back and then you will recieve it in the mail,
it also depends on how long the club has your forms for befor they are sent of to Vmaa, Fredy doesnt send each one of indervidualy, with the influx of members we are having and trying to run his shop I would be thinking that he sends them of within a week or two of you joining the club, hope that helps

If it helps, you can fly once receipted from your club until your card turns up at any MAAA club as long as you produce your receipt when asked to do so.

Great day today, had to leave early to pack but I was also the first there this morning. :-) Some great flying with James D there plus the regular crew of 3D flyers.

I had a good fly and am getting my first inverted orientation better and better, I did have a minor incident with the Protos on it's last battery when I hit the tail hard on an auto landing, only broke the lever arm and chipped a tail blade. Sorry to see Bruce and Scott have a bit more damage on their machines.

The scenery is lovely and flying off the hill quite a fun experience.

Many thanks to all the friendly folk for the warm welcome and it was a pleasure meeting some of the faces behind the names.

Thanks for putting the music on and posting it Jamie. The idea was to be able to get some video that could be edited and put on the AFF site showing the flying site so I tried to keep the aerobatics to a minimum. :-) The Logo makes a great platform for this type of work.

I am searching for the details on the ftp site so I can load them up to the site.

Had my 2nd major crash today. 80th flight. Not pretty. Flew 6 packs for a total of about 40 mins yesterday. Today, barely 3 mins into the first pack...

Managed to break both frames around the forward servos. Canopy is worse for wear but still useable. A good list of stuff to replace.

Just lack of concentration really so I'm kicking myself. Looks like a bit of sim time while I rebuild.  I won't be grounded long :D

It was unfortunate that the camera was pointing too far down for this flight and Jamie hadn't used some lateral thinking and put some tape behind the lens to clean up the picture. Oh well, we can try again on the weekend to get some better views.

Hey Biggles! was excellent - took a few tumbles along the way!..should hopefully be able to move my arms enough to hold the transmitter in the next week or so..looks like I didn't miss out on too much flying with all the crap weather back here!

Had a bit of brain fade on monday evening, crashed the fbl Trex 500 while flying on lake view... , but thats not the worst of it... I can't find the bloody thing... Crashed it around where the road splits and goes up the hill, probably in the long grass near the tree on the right as you drive in (our maybe the left). So far have spent about three hours looking for it. (Thanks for your help Andre).. so if anyone finds a Trex 500 (yellow canopy) its mine:bawl::bawl:

Thyphon - Im a definite for one of those loc8tor gizmos..

Have also posted this in our club room forum but unfortunately the post has remained moderated

Post by: Fredo on February 03, 2011, 01:19:31 PM
For those that are unaware of our field works ,it was decided to have a working bee this Sunday 6th  starting at 9AM.
What to bring, shovels, rake, wheel barrow as we will be shifting dirt onto the 2 flight pads to level them to the concrete flight pads which will be laid on Saturday 5th weather permitting. Also we need many hands to lift the shed so we can  distribute the Lilly dale topping to make a base/floor in the shed. If you have a brush cutter please bring it as well as many areas need tidying up. We need more than 1 wheel barrow if possible. There will be no flying until all work is completed so if you just want to fly make shore you arrive around 2 when all the work is finished.
NOTE. This work is subject to the “gods” weather permitting

I pulled all the electronics apart, by the look of things, no water damage. I'll leave it a few more days before I test.. I'm amazed how little damage there is, some WD40 and a few new parts should get me back flying..

Jamie - Thanks again mate, really appreciate (thought it was gone for good),  Theirs a little hamper of goodies at Fred's for you to pickup next time you're their.

Words of advice, be careful what you spray WD40 on as it corrosive and can damage electronics. Nice find.
Title: Freestyle Flyers Lounge- Laying the Smack !
Post by: Thunder Fighter on February 11, 2011, 07:52:02 PM
Yep, you should use CO Contact cleaner (Jaycar) on the electronics, but WD40 is fine on the screws or other metal pieces.

Thanks for the advise, Only a little surface rust on the screws, so pulled the frame apart, WD40ed and cleaned individual parts as required (no electronics), I think I've been very lucky with the electronics (no sign of damage or moisture)..waiting for a couple of parts to finish repairs, so will hopefully test early next week..

You might want to just pull all of the servo plugs, etc and give them a spray anyway. Rain water (dew) won't do any immediate damage, if the devices aren't powered on and left to dry, it is any impurities that are in the water that can cause longer term problems. Worth cleaning any areas that were more open, like plugs.

Title: Pelicans Rule
Post by: Fredo on February 14, 2011, 09:22:27 AM
Sunday 13th . What a fantastic day. Challenge no2 went to the Pelicans AGAIN, they were out there in force, One of them even broke its back smacking the boundaries of flight.  Well the general flying at the AFF has improved to a new level . Keep it up boys! More Vides needed. Dale as usual is king of smack at the Hill but he will need more “Outrage” to help with the battle. It’s the first time I’ve seen Flybar with nose in hover now mastered. Well done flybar Ill have to take my skirt off to catch up. Again a great day with  visitors and new members enjoying our field.

I flew today....and the rave went in! the vbar sensor wire came out, even though it was hot glued...lost most control, so hit throttle hold and it tumbled to the ground from about 30 metres :( damage was 1 set of skids, 2 boom struts, 2 radix FBL blades, and a couple of links. I'm guessing the feathering and main shafts may be tweaked as well...not too bad considering I guess. Funny thing was, it was almost the same spot that alans 600 went in...

Went for a fly today after rebuild and much effort to reset vbar and cyclic setup.. thanks Gilligan for the help..
Removed and soldered the offending ESC plug that caused last crash...

She flew better than ever before so started to do tail slides (Backward flight my nemesis for the moment) and then wack!!!! tail is gone - JR-8900G burned its **** out leaving me to pick up the pieces...

The real sad thing was that I noticed the servo was unusually hot in the morning during setup.... did I do something about it! nup....

Remember fellas, the offer still stands you guys are more than welcome to grace the field at Werribee any time you like.  Just don't think we can compete with Fredos Guormet burger skills but I'm sure we can throw something together to return the favor.:thumbup:

It was a perfect day to be out there. Got some good flights in, after 6 packs started to feel like my flying was smoothing out again. Landed one nice Auto with the Protos, so pretty happy.

Jamie and Brent were flying great and only Alan's stripped TT gears stopped his fun early.

Had a really good day at the field, spent most of the time tuning the Vbar and CC Governor on the Logo600. Finally worked out how to make the CC ESC bailout work without losing one of my flight modes, I will write up how I did it in another thread.

Only bad thing that happened was I grabbed a used battery for one of my flights with the Protos, I noticed something was wrong after flying for a while and came down to the pad where I heard the headspeed bleeding off and knew immediately what I had done so I hit hold and landed it. The pack had 1 cell at 3.1v about a minute later when I checked it, so after it cooled a little I put it on a storage charge and all the cells came back up to the 3.85v without balancing so hopefully there is not too much damage to the pack. Only time will tell but I think the new packs are a little more tolerant to a deep discharge, a bit like the reputation the old Kong Power packs had.

To show how much of a safety margin I usually have, my timer is set for 6 minutes, and I ran an additional 4 minutes before I noticed the headspeed dropping, the timer had 1:30 left on it when I unplugged the pack on the pad. :shifty:

Sounds like you got the CC ESC auto functioning correctly. Once setup you should have all flight modes operating same as previously. I came across someone who was actually flying with the Normal flight mode set to 0,0,0,0 and was taking off in flight mode 1. They misread the instructions and thought you were supposed to leave it set like that permanently - which is not the case the 0,0,0,0 was just a safety precaution for the initial setup of the Throttle Hold switch when you crank it all the way to max then back it off until the motor stops.  Im using a JR 11x but assume other radios have similar setup or id you have to do something else?

Hi Simon,

I am using a DSX9, and I have had to use a mix on the Tx to get it working, so maybe I still haven't done it right. I couldn't get the ESC to arm when I had it setup initially. The instructions mention that unless you have three position TH switch you need to have normal set at 0 to arm the ESC but I didn't like the idea of that at all.

Do you have it working without a 3 position TH switch?

I also increased the throttle change speed to 14 from th 10 I started with and it works well.

I am using the 2 position TH switch on top left for Throttle hold, the throttle hold function is active in the menu and set to 16. For all three of  my helis all Flight modes (3 pos switch on top right) are setup using govenor so are Normal 0,30,30,30, Idle Up 1&2 100,100,100

Did you recalibrate the throttle (using fixed end points 0,50,100) after setting the Autorotation option in the ESC?

From memory I:
1. turned on Auto feature in the software & updated the ESC
2. Changed to Fixed Endpoints & updated esc
3. Changed Normal mode to 0,50,100 & did Throttle recalibation (High Throttle value was same as before at 94%, low value ended out at about +123% before it beeped.
4. Set Thtottle Hold to the max value (50) - stayed in the edit mode for Throttle Hold value.
5. Activated Idle up 1 so the motor (without blades attached!) ran up to full speed.
6. Whilst still in the Throttle Hold menu item, activated throttle hold then wound the dial back until the motor stopped - Throttle Hold value is  now 16
7. Tested it by switching to idle up 1 then hitting hold, when the motor stopped I flicked off Throttle Hold and the head spooled back up to 100%
8. Changed ESC back to Governed
9. Reset Normal back to 0,30,30,30
10. Did a test fly up nice & high in idle up 1, hit the hold then as the heli approached the deck flicked off the hold & it re-engaged the motor and flew off nicel & sedately!

Hmm, now I see, you are using 0,30,30,30,30 for your normal curve. I didn't think you were meant to do that when using the governor? The instructions (http://www.castlecreations.com/support/documents/set_rpm_governor_mode.pdf) on the CC website have been updated and now say you will lose the use of normal unless you have a three position switch for TH. They don't say you can do what you have, doesn't say you can't either, ;) but you would think if it was recommended they would have mentioned it.  

Your solution wouldn't work for me anyway as I use my normal speed to do some low headspeed aerobatics so run 30 across the board giving me 1650rpm on the head.

What I did was emulate a three position TH by adding a gear to throttle mix so that when I throw the gear switch it gives me a true zero on the throttle channel. So now I flick TH off when on the pad and then flick the gear switch down, the ESC then arms and when I switch the gear switch back up, the heli spools in normal mode with a slow start The TH switch now works as normal, but with a fast spool up, so while flying you don't do anything differently.

The only thing to be aware of is that when you spool down fully now you will get the fast startup. To go back to a slow spool up you need to flick the gear switch down, then switch throttle hold off, then you will get a normal slow start when you flick the gear switch.

This way the function of the TH switch is not effected, the gear switch position controls if you get a fast or slow spool up.

I only use Normal mode for hover routines & never do inverted - as such I will not pull the stick below position 2 (25%) for any other reason than to land the heli.

On take off, once I move the stick to 25% and transition to hover the governor kicks in and uses the settings as per stick position 25/50/75/100 - in my case from 25% above it is set to 30% so the HS is constantly governed to 1800.

Looking at the data logs it is working 100% correctly. The spool up rate is slow initially and if I land then spool up again it reverts to slow spool up...

The manual looks old - the governor now says "use flat 30%..." the old one used to say "..up to 50%".

Also why don't you just set your idl1 mode to governed 1650 and idl2 to something like 2000 etc for 3D. On the 11x there are upto 5 idle up positions but I still only use the 3.

Post by: Thunder Fighter on April 06, 2011, 10:54:27 PM
Great that it's working for you, not at all saying it is wrong to set it up that way but surprised Castle don't talk about it. The instructions are a newer version and have some updates since I did my first setup late last year so I think they are current.

I use 3 head speeds, 1650 for doing some low headspeed invited and flips, 1800 for my normal big air aerobatics and I have 2000 for when I want to throw it around and do fast fly-bys. :D Good suggestion on using another idle up, I think the DSX9 has an idle up 3 that you can assign to another switch, I will have a play and see if that works better than the mix I have now.

Title: AP Photos from yesterday
Post by: Thunder Fighter on April 18, 2011, 12:25:57 PM
Thanks to Luke (Midnight) who is visiting from Sydney we have some very high quality AP shots of the field. Simon (BatteriesRBetter) was on camera duty on the second Tx with the video goggles.

The Heli is a beautifully setup Trex 600 stretched to 700 running 12S with pan and tilt mount and video downlink. I am sure Luke will give more details if anyone wants them.

I have had a quick look at them and selected a few out to put up here and will get them to Scott to put some on our web site. There is also a video taken after I left that is on the way to us.

Perfect flying weather yesterday as can be seen from the photos.

Post by: SonicBOOMERSOONER on April 25, 2011, 07:42:00 PM
Amazing day today with only Thunder Fighter and myself on the hill for several hours.  He helped me diagnose a lose gear mesh on my 450 and it was flying like new afterwards.  I must also compliment him on the eye level inverted hovering....still impressive even with the assist from hill Dude!  

Another new member, Justin, showed up a little before TF left and got to see me pull off a tail down funnel in the wind with the 250.  I started to get the gyro gain on the little bugger locked in after a couple of blowouts transitioning to backwards flight.

Justin's FBL 550 looked and sounded great, and it's sporting the biggest set of training gear I've ever seen.....easily big enough for an 800. :D This guy is hooked and spares no expense; I'm jealous of his 2X 500W Hyperion charger. :thumbup:

When I left the house I was bummed about a servo that went poof and kept me from maidening my 700 nitro over the long Easter weekend, but the GP-Exhaust55 pipe really brought the power on my 600, which was reminding me of a 6HV with the endless climbouts and sick blade farts.  After one very high stall turn I did the fastest downwind pass I've ever witnessed.  I'm getting wound up just thinking about it.  I don't get to the field much and I can't remember the last time every heli I took was working great and the weather was great and the field wasn't crowded.  Who cares about a little wind with all that going on!!

I've been trying to decide if I would join MRCHC or Freestylers when my Werribee membership is up for renewal, and today sealed it.  The guys at MRCHC are as good as they come but I have fallen in love with the hill. :wigglie:

Yep, it was a great day, was wondering where everyone was as I was there most of the day and had Flybar for company in the morning then SonicB came along later on. Hope Flybar had some success getting to the bottom of his power problems as he was only able to get a couple of hovers in.

Mad chemist (Justin) turned up just as I was packing up but I got to see he had the 550 sitting right over the pad in a good controlled tail in hover. Looking good.

SonicB had the 450 zipping around including some nice backwards circuits and a bit of inverted going on and the 600N was singing as well. Glad you like the hill and look forward to seeing out there as a member in the near future.

I was really happy, most flying in a day I have ever done, 4 packs on the 250, 6 packs on the Protos and 3 packs on the Logo. :) Had a real breakthrough with the inverted hovering and can now hover inverted nose-in at eye level just out from the pad with both the Protos and the Logo, even with the wind blowing a bit this afternoon. I even did my first inverted forward flight but haven't tried doing any turns yet.

Just returned home from the field and it's looking awesome (Big Thanks To Jamie)
for mowing the lawns. Did some last min test flights with my Heli's to make sure everything sweet for tomorrow. Jamie and I put some 9 meter markers in, brush cut and sprayed the weeds around the pads. Just before i left I mowed the flight pads for tomorrows events and we roped off the pits. Looking forward to tomorrows shenanigans hope my Heli's stay in one piece. !!!!!!Happy flying dudes!!!!!!!

Fantastic event guys!  Great food and great flying.  I'm proud to be an associate member of the club now.  :salut:

In looking through my 250 parts stash it turns out I did have a set of rear blades and could have gotten back in the air.  I'm sort of glad I didn't notice because I would have pushing the envelope time wise to repair and fly again.  I got the aluminum standoff for my header installed on the 600 and then thought better of "one last flight" so I packed it in for the day.

Thanks to everyone for showing such hospitality to "the Texan".  What a great day!  :D

Well the shaft on my DS420 tail servo was damaged so it's time for a new tail servo for the little guy.  I've recently heard good things about the MKS DS95 on 250, and I love the MKS DS8910 on my 450.  Any other suggestions?

How big do you want to go? The Inolab 261 is good but big on the 250, not as big as the 8910 though. I am going to try the Hyperion 11g tail servo on the Gaui 255, it is getting good feedback.

I have a CC in the Protos but a YGE in my X2. The programing card is only really needed if you plan on using governor store mode. The difference is with normal governor mode you will get a different head speed if the batteries you use are very different to ech other. I.e. If you put a new pack in one flight followed by an old pack the next.

With store mode you set a head speed that becomes the 100% level and adjust the head speed against that constant regardless of the packs (so long as you have the headroom).

There are a couple of other settings that can only be set by the card but the defaults normally work fine.

Title: Freestyle Flyers Lounge- Laying the Smack !
Post by: Thunder Fighter on June 08, 2011, 11:50:55 AM
Spoke to the importer and he is going to supply a new Swash. I haven't heard if he has had any further information from Gaui about the issue. I pulled the heli apart and it looks like the damage is mainshaft, feathering shaft, main gear and oneway, canopy post, frame strengthener and landing gear.

All things considered it crashed pretty well considering it had a bladestop at 3 meters followed by impact to a hardwood floor.

Got inspired watching another member, Brian I think?, fly his FBL Velocity 50 today and did my first ugly piro flips in moderate wind with the 450.  One of them was spectacular, an "Ugly Betty" with an accidental throttle hold hit thrown in for good measure that cost me about 30-40 feet of elevation with a save off the deck.  Anyway, with that psychological barrier behind me a lot more stuff I'm doing in the Sim should start make its way to the field now.  

Freestylers Rocks! :twisted:

Today at quarter til noon  I was eating a snack and heard a heli approaching.  To my surpris it flew up to maybe 700 feet from me  and hovered.  After I gave a wave it did the better part of a nose down funnel and flew away.  If it comes back I'll be sure to put on a show!

I don't know the make but it has a body that encased the tail rotor and looked like it could seat four people comfortably.  It had a multicolor pattern with odd shades of red, maroon and purple overlaid on a white body.

Hey Dennis today I did one piro per half flip piro flips where I pause inverted, then do the second half.  I did these with the 450, then the 250 and then the 600.  I still feel like I'm a long way from the continuous piro action though.  Man if you can do something with the 250 you can do it with anything I think!  The 250SE head I bought from Typhon Saturday sorted all my tracking issues.  The 250 is a dream to fly now.

Title: Why I love Freestylers!
Post by: SonicBOOMERSOONER on June 28, 2011, 08:14:03 PM
In three days aggressive flying, pushing my comfort level, I put my 450 in twice and my 250 four times.  In working on piro flips with these quick little birds the weaknesses in my collective management caused the most trouble.  Typically I had reduced most of the speed at low altitude before hitting hold, and one crash with each bird was caused by inability to control the "programmed" urge to hit throttle hold while recovering at low altitude.

Total damage:
- one 250 flybar
- two 250 feathering shafts
- minor nicks on 250 main gear (not replaced)
- minor nicks on 250 tail blades (replaced but kept for beater spares)
- one 450 feathering shaft.

Freestylers is the most consequence free environment for small birds I've even had the pleasure to fly at.  Of course this doesn't hold as true for bigger birds, as a perusal of the trash can will confirm!

Hey Sonic
maybe we can have a comp on who can do the best "Ugly Betty" because what you described sounds like the first piro I did on my Protos the other day but I didn't recover as I was stupid and flew at 20 feet so I could see how preety my bird looks" and the fact that I can't see much past that anyhow! but we could be the ugly piro brothers and go take on te "Pitch Brothers" ;-)

Nice!  Not sure when I'll be back out at the hill much though. My project at work is entering an intense phase and I've got to ready an unrelated prototype for a presentation I'm doing at an event in San Francisco in October.  I have a feeling we're in for some crap weather over the next several months anyway...

The "Ugly Betty" festival I had for a couple of days really paid off though, as I've identified some weaknesses and been working hard in the sim to correct them.  Next summer should be awesome!

What an awesome day dudes, big thanks to Biggle's and Dale from Latrobe for putting on a great day. You guys have an amazing field and with a bit of luck hopefully we can do the same. Another big thanks for all the Freestyle Flyers that came along, we are really starting to get a good club atmosphere. Here are some of the pics from the day (Warning these photos may contain planks!) Thanks to the boys from Latrobe for the great hospitably.

Today up the hill was Awesome heaps of pilots and heaps of fun. Biggles Scale Heli made it in the air and I got to test the New Speed control the SJ Hawk. I'll post up my thoughts in my review about the details but the weather today couldn't have been better. Nice to see everyone, it's funny how a little bit of sun shine brings the heli's out. Can't wait for Werribbee Next weekend hope the weather is as good as today. Biggles I'll post up the flight of your Scale a bit later.

Yep, a great day up the hill. My third in a row and I had a great time. Its great getting a good bunch together up there.

As far as Biggles' Bell 412, what can I say. Superb. Seen it static before but seeing it fly was a real pleasure.

Now, the weather for tomorrow...??? ;)

Looks like I won't make it, I've missed most of my motorbike clubs rides this year and they have one planned on Sunday. Been neglecting my other hobby lately and 450km of East and South Gippsland back roads beckon. I will go up the hill on Saturday for a fly and to the indoor Sunday night so should still get plenty of heli flying in.

Everyone must be going to Werribee tomorrow because the field was empty this afternoon. I missed the company but it meant I didn't have to wait for a pad. :)

Ran a total of 7 packs through 3 of my heli's, there was a little wind but conditions were perfect. Got my new Mini Protos with 350 blades and 4s running nicely ready for indoor tomorrow night.

Dennis, what throttle percentage are you running on your Protos 500? I was running 85% and governed with the YGE before I stretched and now that I have the 14T pinion I was thinking I could just leave my throttle curves where they are. I like quite a lot of head speed :)
Title: Freestyle Flyers Lounge- Laying the Smack !
Post by: flybar on August 20, 2011, 05:47:13 PM
I was up there in the morning and left by 1. Weather was beautiful. Got 14 flights in (1 battery left for good measure ;)).

Started hooking in to some inverted hovering for the first time. The 550 was a challenge but I couldn't believe how well the 450 FBL handled :D

Walked away with no crash damage and very pleased indeed.

I'm running the CC Ice with set RPM mode and I also have the old motor not the scorpion so I my throttle percentage won't help. I run between 2300 and 2500rpm and the max for the stretch kit is 2800.

I think you are on the right track, one tooth down with the bigger blades and you will have more pop, even with the lower head speed, so start with the curves as before.

Hi Justin, best wishes to the new Church family!

Yep, if you're talking nitro then it would have to be Sundays, otherwise with the electrics I can usually manage to reorganise my diary any day of the week to fly before or after work - or even around lunch time if I time it right!
Title: Freestyle Flyers Lounge- Laying the Smack !

Bugger must have just missed you, I left about 3.30 after getting there before lunch. Got 3 flights on the Protos and 6 on the Logo. Only misshap was breaking the plastic bolts on the Landing gear on an auto with the Logo. No damage, just need to replace them. Otherwise a great afternoon.

Now I just need to sort out the vibration in the Fusion an all my larger helis will finally be in one piece at one time!

yeah I was going to be there for sure - that is until last night when I got home from playing hookey all day and had 78 urgent emails none of which qualified as junk mail!

At least I managed to get the 700 complete tonight & might get a chance to fly in the morning...

Another great day at our field. I got a few flights in at 9:30am before the buffeting wind became a bit much, but I was back by 4PM for a full afternoon with no mishaps. Looks like the field was in constant use all day going by posts above :D

Even had Dale have a fly of my 550. Sorted out a few bugs for me. Big thanx for that :D

If anyone comes across a 4 mm grub screw from a 550E tail about 10 metres past the burnt out car it will be mine ;-)

Lost it about 30-40 metres up, lost all tail control and thought I was about to obliterate the heli after only just rebuilding after the last crash.  Fortunately had Dale standing beside me and he talked me down, seems the only damage is the lost grub screw!  Yay for long grass and Dale's experience :-)

Great save! Not surprised though given that you were using the d.a.l.e attachment.

In about 150 years time they'll be filming an episode of Time Team and your grub screw will appear. They'll be completely stumped.

Yep, I will be there Bruce. I get back into Oz the Wednesday night before it and will try and get some practice in on Friday at our field to blow the cobwebs out. Anyone else up for some Extreme hovering? Even though it is the state champs anyone who can hover tail in and do a 90 degree piro each way will be able to have a go in the novice class.

That would be fine, I will be there from 9am but have to leave at lunch time. There should be a few pilots there tomorrow with a bit of luck.

What time and who is going out to the field tomorrow? I know that Stewy, Churchy, Max, Aidan and myself will be there.

Had fun boys! for the short time I was there. Can't wait for the next inter-club BBQ funfly (or should I say the first) after driving the Mini Protos into the ground hard. I got home a quick blade change and all good nothing bent, this little machine has 10 lives I am sure. So it has 8 left. Haha

I will be organising a general meeting very soon once the Speed Cup is over. We need to get the field up to scratch and the atmosphere up and going while the sun is out for the next few months.

Hey Guys, I had planned to come down and have a look at the field and meeting some of the guys tomorrow, but as you have a working bee and I am not a member YET !, I refuse to stand around like a stale bottle of **** .
So if you want to let me know what you have planned and I will bring the appropriate tools / equipment.

Unfortunately the Nanotech 1000s I bought for the 250 don't quite fit under the canopy.  I may just fly sans canopy to get the extra ooomph.

How's the new field?

No worries at all, looks like your flying is processing very well. It's always good to get someone to look over your heli to make sure everything is in good shape. Dale was great today spending time helping people out, the help he gave me getting the 180 Degree autos in better shape made a big difference in only one pack of autos.

Don't forget to send me a PM when you have the paperwork on joining in to Fred and I will add you to the clubroom.

Cool. Yep, it was quite windy, the last couple of times I have been at the club we have suffered with lots of wind. It is amazing that heli's can fly with plenty of wind but its not that enjoyable sometimes.

WOW, even without the free membership Freestyle Flyer seems to be the club to be with. No LAKE, No PLANKERS, and availability of 240V Power, it's the ideal club. Pity I live on the other side of town and by the time I get there from work it probably be midnight.
Radar, count me in for Saturday after work. I'll try and get there before midnight. :p

Title: Swan Hill FunFly.
Post by: Radar on July 25, 2012, 12:31:33 PM
A friend of mine and soon to be member of AFF is one of the organisers of a Fun-Fly in Swan Hill (3 1/2 hour drive) So I have started this thread so see if I could get a few of us to go and have some fun. It's in Swan Hill on the 13th-14th Oct this year. Most people camp on the grounds and it's an electric only event. I will be driving up on the Fri night and coming home Sun arvo. I will be camping at the field on the Fri and Sat night. If anyone is keen please let me know as I think this will be a fun weekend.

Wanting to join aff. Currently a member of GMAC so maaa insurance paid.

Does associate membership allow me to have gate key? Also are the club fees 50% due to under 6mths left in the year?

What's the quickest way to get an application processed?

Hi Guys,  I am a beginner! But enjoy flying my nano and 130X and I am building a Warp360.  I think it's time for me to join a club and get some lessons/flying advice... I live in Ormond so AFF in Hallam looks like the closest club to me? I have read the website and it looks good in terms of events etc as does radar's flight school.  How often do you guys fly here? Is there a season ie in winter you are closed?

Cheers, Trav
Title: Freestyle Flyers Lounge- Laying the Smack !
Post by: AThommo on April 20, 2013, 03:07:52 PM
Im a new member too.. Drop by and meet some of the members.

No seasons like in other parts of the world. The field is open all year except for fire ban days.  
During the winter months there can be mud and puddles to navigate but you can still fly.

Sundays are our main club flying day but as stated above, members have access everyday. As we move in to winter its really just the weather that is the limiting factor. Feel free to drop in to Hallam Hobbies if you are in the area. Fred is on the Committee and can bring you up to speed and even sign you up if you're ready to take the plunge. We have a great supportive bunch of pilots at every skill level using just about every type of equipment going so its worth coming down and having a chat. Checkout the AFF website and facebook pages as well.

Finky,

if your coming from melbourne city stay on the monash...

take the hallam exit , go up the ramp and turn right and go over the highway you just exited.

go through 3 sets of lights
down hill
over railway lines

take the NEXT road on right (is dirt)

club is about 150 meters up on the right

Real simple to get there so now you have NO excuses !  lol.lol

See you tomorrow

Well another awesome day had buy all and such a great turn out. The new charging bench went in today and we gave the new Geni a good test run shutting it down three times, but we found out why after Big Jas's power supply caught fire and then it was all good. Amazing pilots and there's some pilots out there that are really progressing. James pulled off an amazing flight and Beniki laid down some smooth flying. My new set up went well and I think I might sick with the new settings.

A big thanks to all that came, not sure where all the MARCS boys were but I am sure I counted two. Thanks to Wayne, Steve and all that helped with some of the works done today.

I can't wait for the next session boys. I really feel like we have formed a family down there

We have power on site. Make sure you confirm with a member that they will be there before you make the trip down, as the gates are locked when no one is there and even on the weekends the feild is not always in constant use.

New member here! paid up today and will post off my form tomorrow.  Anyone flying in the weekend (15/16th)? I will come down to introduce myself and hopefully get some flights in.

I'm having some issues getting my warp finished, and if there is anyone that could walk me through the basics of mechanical setup and beastx I am happy to pay for their time in whatever the local currency AUD/Beers/etc....

My key doesn’t work??????
 For those financial members that were unable to attend the AGM you will now be aware that your old key doesn’t fit the new locks.  It’s simple send me your old key and I will issue and send you a replacement. Alternately come to Hallam Hobbies between 8am-6pm perhaps on the way to the field and exchange your old key. A $10 fee is required if you have misplaced your old key, no ifs or buts!

This person probably wish he didn't "go to the AFF field.."
He was taking a "shortcut" to drop off some atv's so his kids could go riding..
Took him about 20 minutes to get out..
Watching him was more fun that flying in the wind!
Guess flying over the "mud" is better..

Not too much that I could do..
I noticed the car when landing.. while returning to the pits they headed off into the grass.
At least certain details are clear in the top photo..
I raised these points, but he blames the landlord next door for changing the locks.
I have some video as well although my (covert iphone) filming sucks..

Post by: flybar on July 21, 2013, 08:53:16 PM
This is bloody rediculous but the answer is fairly simple. Shut the gate when you're at the field. If its left open its a free for all. I've had several cars and utes slow down at our gate and see the chain on (looks locked up) and keep driving. Landlord probably changed the locks to stop them getting in and its irrelevent to us anyway. If you are the last person to drive through the gate its YOUR responsibility.
Title: Freestyle Flyers Lounge- Laying the Smack !
Post by: argypak on July 21, 2013, 09:59:16 PM
Mike is right, its also for your own security, so if your the last one in, shut the gate.

Post by: wobblygts on July 22, 2013, 10:38:38 AM
You're between a rock and a hard place there fellas..... If you shut the gate you don't get interested bystanders (new members/customers) but at least you are safe....I could just imagine some gangsta's coming on and wanting a go of the "sik heli man"...... :2c:

As we are on a dead end road the only passers by are the motocross riders and the people illegally dumping rubbish on the roadside. I always keep the gate closed if I happen to be there on my own, so no one can sneak up on me while flying. If there are more people there we see anyone driving in and can head them off if they are not meant to be there.

Not taken personally!!
I'm not sure that I've seen the gate closed while someone is there..
That's a good idea, & now that I think about it, they could have come in and made off with one of my Heli's, which were by chance out of sight.
I did not see them drive in & I think that they were watching me fly...

The "lucky" difference is that this time, I was able to get his number plate/evidence when he got bogged.
The other times I have seen them "cross the field" they have been too quick.

I have audio of him complaining about their landlord putting a new lock on the gate, which just gets cut off.
As this was my last flight for the day, I packed up and drove past the gate. He was able to get his kids atv's into the track through a hole cut in their gate. I think he thought it would be easier to bushbash over our field than the effort of lifting them through a gate.

Unfortuantly I was not able to get his name, but I have video of him driving back & forth, & the photo's of his car..
Some good points have been raised, but wouldn't it be easier to block the route using (even) the pile of wood that we have. Regardless of the "moral" issues of trashing the grass, there is also the insurance/liability issues.
What if I had been flying from "western" line..

how about we extend our fence to encompass the whole car park? We already have the materials, it is just a matter of labour.
Good idea.. I took too long typing my reply up!

Yep, spoke to Dale about that a couple of days ago. Define the carpark and then put some form of barrier up, could even be star pickets and rope to start with.

Who allowed this to happen the field is private land !!!!! Not a fricken hwy for the motor bike idiots to gain access to their bike track..
We bust our guts last week and now we have to bust them again to fix this, bloody great !!!!!!!!!!

I've been known to chase a few of these idiots off in the past, I also usually shut the gate which works 99% of the time.

I reckon next time this happens we send Scully over with a can of petrol to assist just in case they run out. Who's to say how that might go.. :)

Guys,

I have only been made aware of this tonight, as this is private property this guy has no legal right to be there.
I will be chatting to our police member tomorrow and addressing the process to recover the cost to rectify this and to what our legal options are in proceeding  the person responsible.

Hey Ben,

I'm in the middle of re skills to mode 2, so although I want to go and fly at the club, I don't want to make Glen or Radar happy by crashing my E7.

I'm about a month away from coming back to the field I think

Indeed it was Dennis... Note to self, make sure battery is strapped in securely.
Andrew got it on film lol... Heli dropped like a rock. Surprisingly little damage though:
-main blades
-blade grip arm bolt
-boom
-tail belt
-skids
-frame

 Unfortunately one TP 4400mah pack was harmed in the making of the above list.

Would someone please pm me answers to the following questions as I'm considering joining you guys.

How much does it cost to join the freestyle fliers club?
When does the subscription year start and finish?
How long does it take to get the insurance, key to the site etc?
If theres no one at the field can I still fly on my own or is it club rule to always have someone else with you?

What other rules do I need to know.

Regards

Neil

The rates are listed on the membership form on the website.
http://www.freestyleflyers.com.au/getresource.aspx?objid=eec2758a-862f-4638-b297-a67cb9f71d30

Fees can be paid to Fred (Treasurer) who will give you a key for the gate.
The fees are due June/July but will be prorated for if the period is less than 12 months for the ongoing fees.
Fred will be able to handle the MAAA insurance, and will take approx a month to get your MAAA info.

All MAAA rules apply, including no flying on (Nitro & Electric) on Total Fire Ban days.
There are no time/day restrictions on flying except those that contravene MAAA rules.
It's always better to fly with company, but there are days when there is no one else..
Non members/Visitors obviously need to be signed in.

All visitors to the field should review the information posted before entering the pits from the carpark.

I don't have anything to fly, but I may be heading out tomorrow.
Flying depends on weather, with more people there on better days.
If you would like to come down (to have a look) & would like to be sure that there is someone there, please send me a PM.

No probs,
I know how frustrating it can be to try & make a visit only to find a closed gate.
Let me know when you will be coming down & I'll make sure it's open.

It won't be long (Oct 9th?) that the afternoon/evening flying starts again..

Just to add to the excellent info from Yak, while it does take a bit of time to get your MAAA card, you are covered by insurance after paying your fee, you don't have to wait for your card and number. Your receipt is valid proof of MAAA membership.

Yeah... Our field.
The tree was next to the fence/train line, near the drag racing area.
We thought he was chasing a train & combined with bad examples of tree pruning from +ve pitch...
It went down right as a train was going past & it kept "raining" branches for minutes..
Hope it's not a rekit..

Hey Radar/FFGuys,

was at MARCS a couple years ago when they went down the same route and shelled out 5K for a generator.
All good and dandy, till the Gennie got stolen, Gennie was locked in a shipping container but that didn't stop the robbers.
not sure how the insurance claim turned out. I'd investigate out insurance options.
If that site is perm, might even be able to run power to the field, might not be to expensive... but worth checking out.

train line looks close, 11kv right there :)

Yep, we have insurance and have some very good security systems in place, our old Generator was there for nearly 12 months before it developed a fault.

The new generator should be "in the post" now.
Expecting delivery Friday.. maybe tomorrow, but might need a bigger letterbox.. :)

It will have remote start, so with no need to access it except for refueling, we can make it even more secure.
We expect that it will be bigger than the old one, and might need a day or two to get it setup.

BBQ's ARE BACK ON! Wednesday nights.

The BBQ's are back on at Freestyle Flyers and they start tomorrow night.

So if you are up for a Wednesday arvo fly and some tucker, get on down and bring a bevy or two to crack one open after a fly and talk all things Heli. Weather is looking good and I know a few people are keen. See you all there!

Had the detectives drop in this morning and warned only to fly within our boundaries.

I would advise speed cup not to be held here.

Apparently i upset a fellow member doing a speed pass, we were aware he was flying in the left and i was centre spot main flight line. I did not enter his area and neither of us felt his heli was close at all.

Fellow pilots,

Can I ask that individuals (and spotters for that matter) show the appropriate respect for other pilots.

After setting up for a great but rare morning flying today I managed to get just 2 flights in before being cut off mid flight on my third by a visitor commencing a speed run with a member spotting/filming. (The speed runs themselves created a separate serious issue which I won’t go in to here, that’s up to the committee to deal with.)

Of concern to me was the lack of respect shown to another pilot already flying. I don’t recall experiencing this before at AFF. It’s not how we do things. I thought for a few seconds that I was going to lose control of my 600 in an attempt to pull away for the speed run but I recovered and landed roughly with shaking hands.

Suffice to say that my mornings flying was over. Next time I will be far less diplomatic expressing my concerns after such an incident, but let’s not have a next time.

Fly safely & enjoy (at no-one else’s expense)
Title: Freestyle Flyers Lounge- Laying the Smack !
Post by: Thunder Fighter on January 09, 2014, 12:38:50 PM
Hi guys,

The issue with the CIB will be looked at by the committee so no need to discuss further here till we investigate further.

On the other issue this morning, if we follow the club spotter rules issues like this can be avoided in the future. When flying back to back on the left and right flight lines or if a single pilot is flying then you can fly without a spotter but as soon as two adjacent pads are used, both pilots need to have spotters or only fly one model at a time. Having a spotter in place helps avoid surprises like this as the spotter should be watching where the other model is and advising the pilot.

//Dennis.

Please gentlemen if we could discontinue speculation, comment, and hearsay on this incident on this forum for the time being our Committee will investigate the facts and resolve any issues that may arise as they have for the past 3 years.  You all know how out of control and destructive forums can get.

In future i will wait for fellow pilots to land.

To be fair i had a spotter and we both did not feel we where anywhere near you.  Nevertheless i apologise and am an aff member.

Happy flying

Post by: rchelijc on January 09, 2014, 01:51:00 PM
I'll be honest... I didn't think there was enough room for the speed cup at AFF..  But only guessing since I don't know the dimensions of the land available.

I would think with the train line and factories bordering us, it might pose a challenge especially for speed runs where boundaries are pushed a little harder due to the competitive nature.
Title: Freestyle Flyers Lounge- Laying the Smack !
Post by: flybar on January 09, 2014, 02:14:23 PM
Dennis, the issue here wasn’t that I was flying without a spotter. There were only 3 of us at the field and I had no issue whatsoever alternating flights with the others. It was quiet and relaxed. Given they were flying speed runs I felt it just a matter of courtesy to not be in the air while they were doing so, giving them a free run and no chance of interference from another machine. There was no inconvenience to me in doing that.

My issue was that having been patient, and then put my model up; I was forced to stop flying the pattern I initially started, sport style across the field North to South.
 
Helicraze, I understand that you had a spotter but to be fair, a “spotter” focused on filming a heli in flight is not a spotter. Their focus is on the heli being filmed and keeping it in frame, which as I heard expressed, was very difficult. A “spotter” would have said, “You have a 600 doing wide circuits on your left so that air is not clear at the moment.”

These factors are what I took in to consideration when deciding not to fly at all while a speed run was in progress.

The reason you didn’t feel you got anywhere near me is because I took the immediate action required to prevent that, almost at the cost of my machine and certainly at the cost of the remainder of my mornings flying. I cut my flight short and got out of the air.

I’m quite sure that had I started flying 2 mins in to a speed run and flown across the field to the trees you would have understood where I am currently coming from.

Having said all that, I appreciate the apology and will say no more on the matter.

Happy flying.
Title: Freestyle Flyers Lounge- Laying the Smack !
Post by: bathmagic on January 09, 2014, 03:13:32 PM
Ok, Now thats sorted I will follow up on one last thing, The CIB.

I have been over and chatted to the owner of the scrap yard, They did not report any of us to the police.
The crime squad was there on business related to them and scrapping cars (for checking VIN numbers etc). The police took it upon themselves to come and visit and warn you guys who were flying at the time about flyover areas (In fact the information they gave you was incorrect and pointless).
The scrapyard owner and staff whom i spoke directly with love watching us fly, they often have lunch and watch.

They have NO issues what so ever about us flying over the top of their machines...Again I repeat NO issues.

Although as the club's President I feel the need to remind all members and visitors that it is best from a safety point of view that we do not fly over the scrap yard between the hours of

M-F    7am-330pm
Sat    7am-12

I also request if you are at the field doing speed runs that you make other members aware of you flying these high speed passes and if possible try to fly when someone else is not to save any scary moments.

Please note a "spotter" is not a camera man... Everyone should fly with a spotter unless there is not anyone else at the field.

End of subject, lets move on.

Jason as I posted above there is no flying at the field on total fire ban days. It is a club rule as the risk of causing a fire that could get out of control and cause property damage and possibly loss of life is too great. I believe that Turbines and Gassers (petrol fuelled) models are forbidden by MAAA rules and for other models it is just a recommendation that has been adopted by our club.

As the field is open 24/7 (except for fireban days ;) ) people fly at a lot of different times. Wednesday evenings during daylight savings time is a regular club event often followed by some night flying, otherwise both days on the weekend are when you normally get a few people along. To be sure post up on here or on our Facebook page to check if someone is planning to be there before you venture out to the field.

Depends what you consider bad... :)
Remember the shops think crashing is good.. (for business) :)

Whilst it is hard following the standard set by some, I wanted to learn to fly, not crash, so was not embarrassed to strap training gear on & fly at the AFF field.. (Though I did get some looks..)
Now the fly/crash ratio is almost acceptable to "she who controls the $$$"
Now I'm just in trouble for accumulating heli's..

Just that Total Fire Ban days suck..
The weather can be perfect, but no flying..

Hey mate, I'll try to make it down tomorrow. I'm also on of those with zero clues on what's happening, and thought all of this was some sort of joke, but I guess it all looks serious.

I also realise someone got expelled... How does that happen, and who makes the decision on this?

I'm coming from the PoV of having deep insights into the working of such committees for large clubs (10k + members) and there's usually a formal process to ensure fairness.

Obviously I only fly there and do pretty much nothing else, but interested to know that a fair process would protect my own membership... Does that make sense?

Given the facts at hand, and once you see the real facts and the lies someone has been telling people, also by letter with false and misleading information in it your concerns will be put to rest.
Once the financials are brought up to date by a CPA the prosecution process will begin.

There is more than enough evidence to call in the police so far, but once we have everything at hand and we can make sense of things we will be looking for recovery of all things.
I would like to ensure you all that the clubs constitution is current and upto date and has been followed along with the dispute process.
The committee voted unanimously on the decision to do what it has done so far and has agreed to follow this through to the letter.

Please attend the meeting guys and see for yourself before believing the lies someone is telling you to cover up their tracks.

Jas, you have clearly got me wrong. I am not talking about the issue with the suspended member. I am talking about what the members of AFF want. In the past we had club meetings but know one turns up, I am trying to get people there so we can get some feed back. We can't make changes if the members don't say anything.

Jas I have never seen you at a club meeting or AGM so how can you have a sook! Come down dude we need to here what's on your mind.

Personally i dont have time to go to meetings often working long hours im lucky to go to the field.

An email with a survey i can do at any time and in this day and age more appropriate?

To date i havent recieved anything from the club in regards to how to use the genny or where it is, would be good to send welcome email to new members with points of contact and general information also statement of the club and things the club is looking at.

Im not into bookface

I quite enjoy melb heli clubs newsletter i feel like we are kept in the loop.

I understand the commitees job may be thankless but it is appreciated.

Thats my 2.5 cents

Michael,
This was organised, voted on and put into place but the committee and I agree with your point.
The committee put an action into plan for this over 12 months ago….

Where it failed to work was the "registrar" at the time failed to let the let "field liaison officers" know of any new members.

Can you guess who that was???

Michael,

No problem with that, Im just clarifying for you what has been done by the committee for these things.
If people attended the meetings they would know about it

As for Melb helis news letter this is a great idea, I would welcome this as I am sure would everyone else

Would you like to stand for a committee position and do the newsletter ?

Post by: flybar on March 04, 2014, 09:42:28 PM
I joined the committee previously as one of 2 field liaison officers to act as a first point of contact for enquiries and prospective new members. I raised the issue at a number of meetings that my name and contact details would need to be available on our site in order to do this. My details never appeared at any time and I subsequently was never contacted by any prospective or new members. The position effectively was redundant and I chose not to continue in the role.

I am unable to attend the meeting as I am away with work but I have spoken at length with both Wayne & dale and expressed my concerns, both in relation to past expenditure decisions and future transparency. I'll be looking forward to seeing the minutes and seeing everything sorted out prior to the next membership year.

And as you are aware after our discussions Mike this is EXACTLY what the committee is now able to do and has been trying to do for over a year,
Provide the members with the following
Transparency of the financial information
Transparency to all club information
Transparency to all club members details

The implementation of "Tidy club" to our association will cure all of the past unquantified spending and "financial transactions"

Only once an Audit is completed on the clubs financials will the true state of the clubs financial position be known and be available for all members to see.

Lastly please note only after the Audit will the association have the correct accounting information that is required by law for any association to operate with.

I'm sure I'm alone on this, but the only updates I never need are the following :

1. When is the field out of use / events
2. When is the Geni out of action
3. When and how much for renewal
4. What are changes and when
5. When will the locks change and where can I collect the new keys

I know a lot probably run in the background. Updates on webpages / newsletters take time, and quite possibly money. I'm fine with updates on Arc, and the Facebook (I joined FB when I joined AFF).

I already appreciate the time and effort put in, and I know it's already a thankless job.

Jason,

Once Tidy club is released to the members ( within the next few days) you will have all that information at your fingertips when ever you want it.

This is what the committee has been trying to implement for over a year now.
There has been one particular "issue" which has stopped it from happening, now that is sorted its full steam ahead, This is one of the reasons we want everyone to attend the meeting tomorrow so we can run through this with you all.

Mike,

I see your friend has clearly been in your ear telling you lies again.
The suspended member you mention is not suspended but infact expelled from the association.

There has never been an open cheque book on spending, in fact its been quite the opposite and you are aware of this.
So i ask you Mike why all the question now when you yourself can attend any meeting and ask this stuff?
As for paying for the girls to sell raffle tickets, if you were involved in the running you would see why and how this worked, but alas you were not and have a biased opinion from a certain person.
It seems to me that you have again been mislead by a certain lying bitter individual.

As for the toilet block this has been on my agenda for over a year and we had to put it aside because of not knowing the true financial position of the club.

If you took more interest in. The running of things you would know the whats, hows and why and would not be taking part in these slanderous unsubstantiated comments.

Lastly Mike, If you have issues please raise them with me and or the committee directly not on a forum like this please.

From my armchair and scotch in hand (a bit early I know) I think this back and forth on a public forum over hobby club politics is stupid and needs to stop.

Whoever the President is, please send a mass mail to all members email addresses, and thrash it out there for those who need to.

Currently there no real channels I can think of other than this thread, or Facebook, so please create one out of the embarrassing limelight.

Post by: flybar on March 05, 2014, 12:19:38 PM
Dale as just discussed by phone, I am aware he was expelled not suspended. That was a typo. I haven't been "misled" by anyone. I do take exception to the suggestion that I am taking sides with our "friend". I am not trying to instigate anything or cause issues. I have just raised some issues. I have made NO slanderous comments. Nothing I have heard from anyone is substantiated yet, although I can see what appears to be happening. Hopefully the meeting clears everything up.

Having said that I have deleted my post in the best interests of the club. What you have discussed with me makes sense and I support. As discussed, I will make myself available as a general committee member if supported to do so. I take a great deal of interest in what's going on hence my interactions with you and Wayne over previous weeks. As explained I am unable to attend tonight despite very much wanting to be there.  

My proxy vote rests with you at the meeting.

Why is the dirty laundry being aired so publicly? I know things have to be discussed, but it's making you all look a bit silly when viewed from the outside. Surely a club meeting would be the best place to deal with the issues.

Exactly.
The committee is following the correct and legal procedures to deal with internal issues within the club.
These include mediation of the disputing parties by a mediator from an independent organization.
All parties to the mediation should be refraining from posting to a public forum.
If a party to the mediation decides to make any further public posts, I will take that as granting me or the committee permission to fully discuss the matters that were to be taken privately to mediation, in this forum without any legal recourse against myself and the committee.

We have called a meeting of the members, but due to the notification rules within the constitution members had to be given 14 days notice.
We have complied with this, and the meeting is to be held tonight and all current members are encouraged to come.
Hopefully the weather will be good and some fun flying be had.
Yak.

Come on guys you need to read what people actually write before cutting them down.

He clearly wrote that he did not know there was a meeting and than later said that he was never notified by email. Yes he said he could not make it but only after saying he did not know about it.

My intention is not to defend HC but to point out that you guys are arguing like children. It's really making a great club with lots of great people look like crap.
Was intending on joining as i'm in the area ever Wednesday night. Might stay clear for a while until you guys can sort out your stuff.

I joined because Radar who is a top bloke recommended it, and because it is near. That was pre-Generator + flashbang whistles days.

I didn't have a facebook account then, but knowing it was a facebook only club at that time, I set up an account.

Fast forward to now - awesome setup with a high-powered generator, multiple plug points, kitchen, and its a dedicated heli club. I would really LOVE it if we could flatten one side and allow planks to land but hey, maybe it's against the religion here :)

If I were to do it all over again, I would still join AFF for it's current features, and not it's people, although no offence to the people - it's just that it's secondary to me. I go to AFF to fly Helis, take my son there to see others fly, and that to me is a good time!!

Positively YES!  This club is made of the finest group of dedicated enthusiasts who will go well out of their way to help.  The camaraderie is second to none.  The most important ingredient of any club is its general members and this group has the best of the best. The infrastructure plays an important role to some but without a cohesive dedicated group of members with common goals you just have an empty paddock.  Why not come down and check them out for yourself. You’re most welcome!

We all have a good laugh when we get together and fly, and occasionally crash. Lots of good people i'd call friends and TopA I would suggest you come down and see for yourself rather than take this waste of a thread as a representation of AFF.

Hi Helicraze,

Just to clarify, if you live over 100k from the field then you can choose associate member. If you are member currently choose Existing Full Member without MAAA (Member of another Club and less than 100km from field) - Full Year with Gate Key  (https://freestyleflyers.tidyclub.com/membership/levels/6n1Bd/edit), otherwise New Full Member without MAAA (Member of another Club and less than 100km from field) - Full Year with Gate Key  (https://freestyleflyers.tidyclub.com/membership/levels/5d8WM/edit)

Hope that's clear. If not send me a private message.

Regards

Hi Guys,

Sorry for the confusion, this is a new club administration system we are implementing and of course we are having teething issues.

Just to clarify:

Are you an existing full member and you pay your MAAA to us - then select Existing Full Member - Full Year with Gate Key

Are you a new full member and you will pay your MAAA to us
- then select New Full Member - Full Year with Gate Key

Are you a member of AFF already and a member of another club and live more than 100Km away from the AFF Main Field and pay MAAA to your primary club
- then select Associate Member (Member of another club and more than 100Km from field) - Full Year with Gate Key*

Are you new to AFF and a member of another club and live more than 100Km away from the AFF Main Field and pay MAAA to your primary club
- then select New Associate Member - Full Year with Gate Key*

Are you a member of AFF already and a member of another club and live less than 100Km away from the AFF Main Field and pay MAAA to your primary club - then select Existing Full Member without MAAA (Member of another Club and less than 100km from field) - Full Year with Gate Key

Are you new to AFF and a member of another club and live less than 100Km away from the AFF Main Field and pay MAAA to your primary club - then select New Full Member without MAAA (Member of another Club and less than 100km from field) - Full Year with Gate Key

Hope that helps. If not please send me a pm

Argy / Radar, I accidentally clicked "New Full member with MAAA" and paid for it including the new joiner fee - I intended to just renew my membership.

How do I go about getting a partial refund for the difference?

Appreciate your help.

Hi Guys,

Sorry for the confusion, this is a new club administration system we are implementing and of course we are having teething issues.

Just to clarify:

Are you an existing full member and you pay your MAAA to us - then select Existing Full Member - Full Year with Gate Key

Are you a new full member and you will pay your MAAA to us
- then select New Full Member - Full Year with Gate Key

Are you a member of AFF already and a member of another club and live more than 100Km away from the AFF Main Field and pay MAAA to your primary club
- then select Associate Member (Member of another club and more than 100Km from field) - Full Year with Gate Key*

Are you new to AFF and a member of another club and live more than 100Km away from the AFF Main Field and pay MAAA to your primary club
- then select New Associate Member - Full Year with Gate Key*

Are you a member of AFF already and a member of another club and live less than 100Km away from the AFF Main Field and pay MAAA to your primary club - then select Existing Full Member without MAAA (Member of another Club and less than 100km from field) - Full Year with Gate Key

Are you new to AFF and a member of another club and live less than 100Km away from the AFF Main Field and pay MAAA to your primary club - then select New Full Member without MAAA (Member of another Club and less than 100km from field) - Full Year with Gate Key

Hope that helps. If not please send me a pm

Argy

New Flying Site For Freestyle Flyers, Still Laying The Smack Down

After slight hiccup AFF is up and running again. We are leaving the old field behind and starting a fresh at our new location. Our new site is just next door to the old location and features an improved layout with additional flying space and a Southern outlook which greatly improves visibility when flying.

 Thanks to the hard work from members yesterday, the majority of the clubs infrastructure is already in place and so the field can be used while we put the final touches on the location

 Regards
 Argy

Dropped into the new field this afternoon. Wow. It's awesome.
The new setup has heaps more room for parking and the flying space is huge compared to next door. :) Had whole flight line to myself and managed to get two flights in. I think I will be joining very soon. Congrats to the members on there new site.

Cheers Craig.

I am so pleased for you guys however I have a question.  Have you had the vmaa approval for the new site. I was wondering how that went as it is directly next door to an existing registered field? There seems to be now separation which used to be  a big no no. I hope this is not an issue and you can build the new club :-)

On Thursday afternoon there was a guy down at the club who flew a E-Flite UMX Habu. I might be wrong but I thought he said he might want to sell it. If I got that right, I might be interested. Let me know......

I am guessing it was 3dMick but I could be wrong.

In other news we had a great working bee at the club today with a lot of tasks completed. The place is looking great.

I also want to congratulate Justin Law and Daniel Tilley on gaining their Bronze wings today, well done guys.

I went down to visit the Freestyle Flyers Club yesterday and I’m glad I did too......

Great bunch of blokes with a really easy going environment. I’ll be joining up this week, can’t wait..... It sure does beat flying on your own!

Just a quick thanks to Dennis for taking the time, giving me the ins and outs of the club, some helpful flying hints and even a quick fix on my Forza!

My camera is never too far from me, so I have some pics to link up here tonight....

Was great you made it down to the Club Steve and glad you enjoyed the day. Thanks for taking so many great photos and posting them up, I think we have a role as club photographer vacant so please keep bringing the camera down. ;)

Thanks heaps for the Video Steve, I've edited the post to embed it, I have found arcHELI can be a little temperamental with embedding and it took me a couple of goes to get it working.

Congratulations to Geoff Smart who gained his Silver Wings today.

It was a great day at the field again today, even though the wind came up later in the afternoon, the sun was shining and all the heli's went home in one piece.

Thanks again Steve, didn't know you were filming that flight. I saw you had your phone out after the flight and wondered why you weren't using your camera to take pictures, didn't think about you taking a video. :)

I've never really had any videos of my flying before the couple you have taken recently so it's nice to have some record of my flying.

Congratulations to Josh Hilder and Harley Costello who both achieved their Silver wings yesterday. The wind was blowing but they both handled it relative ease. Special mention to Harley who has only just joined the club and set a new benchmark by gaining his Silver Wings on his first day flying at the club as a member.

Very nice Steve, some nice action shots of my new P380 EVO, it looks great in the air. The 766 doing F3C practice isn't as dynamic but you captured it well anyway.

Great warmup to the ******** funfly at AFF with Chopsy and Chucka dropping in for a fly. We kept the flight line busy till the afternoon when we drifted over the MRCHC for the start of the fun fly.

Congratulations to Ozzy Mozzy for passing his Silver Wings today, no problems for him even with the strong winds we had before lunch.

Very nice pics mate.  Thanks for sharing these.  Nice to see some guys are still flying heli's.

I hate to admit that since I got into FPV ~2 years ago my heli's are starting to collect dust.  Currently I'm mainly flying FPV 250 racers, 450 quads, racing wings, and planes.

I know I should just take a few of my heli's to FPV but I just do not feel comfortable thinking about the FPV landings, lol!

Cheers,
TomC

Hey Dennis

changed a couple things and seems to be ok but we will see.

new set of Kosmik esc cables and stripped the neo down and  made sure all looked ok inside , replaced the antenna's  as one had a little kink near the end, plus they were  touching each other inside the case , so i adjusted them so they didn't touch anymore.

What a beautiful day in Melbourne it was, still is!!! I didn't get there till late morning and Dean, Argy and Justin were already there ripping up the sky...... A little later Simon and Daniel turned up. It was a pretty busy flight line!

We had a good range of different Helis.... Fusion, Protos 700 & 380, soXos 550 & DB7, Synergy E5, Logo 550 & 600, TDR and a HD750..... Now for some Photos.....

Last night we had a Night flight at AFF. Brian, Argy, Dean and myself all had our night rigs ready to go and Wayne came along to watch...

The only casualty was Brian's Raptor after it had a de-solder..... He got off lightly with only a broken skid and some links

It's from Insane canopy.
Original Henseleit that was sent to Insane for painting at great expense!
Yellow / green in color, matching tail fin.

It's from Insane canopy, pretty sure Andrew designed it and it may have been Lens canopy

It is the most beautiful canopy I have ever seen

was a crazy expensive canopy that I didnt really expect would cost as much as it did. Got the bill afterwards. Price for this paint job has gone up too. Dont know i would do it again :)
Looks amazing though.

What a beautiful day at AFF, yes it was bloody hot but you can't have it all..... We even had one of Brians mates visit us, he is under the container waiting for you Brian lol...... Dean aka Mr soXos was smacking his naughty soXos machines.... Geoff was fine tuning his TDR and discovered his Goblin 570 was in desperate need of new head dampeners..... Cliff brought along his beautiful Diabolo 700.... Argy was giving his Protos MaxV2 a real hard time.... Justin was flying under the radar lol and Daniel  left just as I got there.......

Freestyle Flyers now have a gravel driveway making access to the field during winter a lot easier..... A big thanks to Geoff, Argy and Steve for all their hard work today.

Had an awesome day yesterday at AFF. Andrew brought his GoPro Her Session down and we mounted it on my Logo 700. I managed to get 5 flights with it on the boom facing forward and some backwards, so I edited it all into one vid, probably shouldn't have as its a bit to long!

I hope you enjoy and thank you Scoobalimalima for the inspiration

Australian FreeStyle Flyers are having a BBQ and an Open Fire tomorrow. Everyone is welcome to come along and join us. Even if you just want to watch! All pilots that wish to fly must have MAAA insurance.
Also, our big Generator is being serviced, we have two small ones to use but if you do have a small Geni bring it along please. thanks....

Big day at AFF..... Mickdee and Min aka M&M came over with their Chronos Smack machines. Min certainly beat on his!!! I took photos but as suspected they arent in focus, Min is just to quick!!

Matt brought his HD750 for its maiden which went perfect.... Its got a Pyro 1000 and at 15 degree pitch nothing could stop it!!

Big day at AFF today..... Lots of Chronos helis getting beaten on by MickyD, Adam, Vito and Min.....I put in 14 flights today so didn't actually get many photos... But I did get a handful of photos worth posting of Adam and Vito.

Oh and I had my first Banshee 700 flight. Put in a total 4 flights for the day on it.... WOW what can I say, smooth smooth smooth.... absolutely beautiful to fly and yes I did go to bank 3 with 2300HS at 16 on the pitch  :notworthy:

The best part of the day......


I am surprised the blades didn't break from that, must have made a loud noise cutting them down. Last time I just clipped one of them I thought I had damaged my blades.
Nice pics.
