Wasn't a bad day for flying.  Not as nice as the weather in Bundaberg, but still nice.  About 13 degrees and a bit of wind and clouds that were blown away mid morning.

The flights consisted of the usual stuff... piros, forwards and back flips, loops, stall turns etc.

I barely had enough fuel on the first flight, with only about 2-3mm in the bottom of the header tank after the 10 minutes.  The second flight was better with about 3/4 of the header tank.  I leaned off the main needle by...

Battery #6 took 1588 ma to charge in 71:21 minutes for a 7 minute flight

It was chilli morning for flying and the icy northerly wind didn't make things any better.

The repaired tail blades held up really well, but the heli was very twitchy for some reason.

The flights were still enjoyable though, with lots of flips and loops with a few rolls thrown in.

Two flights, 11 and 14 minutes.  Max engine temps were 84 and 92

Edit:  I found out why the heli was possibly twitchy...  Two of the engine mount screws (muffler side) had come out meaning the...
