Well I finished the mods to my Big Lama backup cam ship which will become primary ship for now. Added a cnc swash and lower head along with Xtreme gears. Collar set was stripped and had to be drilled out anyway so it was a good time for the modes while tore down. Xtreme gears sure tame down vibes. Had a bit of a mishap as well due to a friendly dog off leash lol. Not a great video due to rotten weather and hoping for a sunny fog and wind free morning soon! In about a month or me when Fall arrives we have 3-4 months of excellent clear, windless mornings for flying. Can't wait. Right now it's hit and miss. My apologies for the bad video, Mother Nature won out.Confused No more videos until I get decent calm sunny weather. Video is in in HD (720p) and best viewed in YouTube.

Thanks for the video. I love watching these birds fly. The rain has finally let up here. Things are kinda muddy and wet but I might get a chance to play a little this weekend. Got the new motors in and the vibrations tamed down some what. I went ahead and put the OD green Lama canopy on it. It does look kinda military. Got to change the shafts on the other one. Not sure which one is bent so for now I'll just change them both out.

Cool deal Tom. Chasing vibes can be a bear until you learn all the little tricks etc. Sounds like the motors are a good deal, may try a set in 1 ship. One way to check your shafts is to take the inner shaft out and spool it up slowly and if it's smooth and no wobbles from being bent then install the inner shaft and slowly spool her up and check for wobbles. Just one way I do it. Works for me Wink Hope ya get to fly soon! I'm too still on still on the hunt for decals.

I spoke too soon about the rain. Its raining, again. But we need it so I'm not gonna complain. Might work on the second ship today. Or I might just finish the F-22 I've been working on. What ever they're both good indoor projects.
