Heli pilot dipping his wick (so to speak)

Postby Steelie600 on Sun Jan 10, 2016 6:16 pm

Bonjour from Shitty Crewe!!

My names Kev Davies and ive been involved with rc flight since i was 16. I flew planes from 16 - 28 until I saw my first 3d heli, then promptly sold all my planks and have been egg-whisking for the last 10 years. With only a small hiatus when I got rid of her who thought she must be obeyed.

Ive recently jointly taken over the reigns at South Cheshire Heliaddicts club, and as we have just moved site to a field with a TARMAC BLOODY RUNWAY!!! It would be downright rude not to get back into fw.

Aswell as my 6 Goblin helicopters, I currently own a HK Sbach 1400mm foamy, Sebart 30e sukhoi, and a World Models 28% extra is nearing completion. So ive been reading the snot out of the threads for ideas hints and tips :clap:

Ive never had anything bigger than a .90 plane before so kinda intimidated at its size, but the build has been really pleasant and the kit has a lot of nice little touches.

So thats me, and if anyone lives near south Cheshire and wants to fly from tarmac, send me a pm and ill make it so

Welcome Kev,

It's nice to hear from someone who lives north of Birmingham! Glad you're seeing sense and getting back into FW especially with your new site, sounds awesome you lucky bugger!

My son flies Heli's as well as FW and they are a bit like jets...addictive!

I am sure you will get all the help you need here (and probably some you don't need! :? )

Cheers mate,

Dave.

If your son uses the same username as you on RC Heli Addicts I know him already. And thanks for the welcome!

Haha, no that's me...I just finance his endeavours...! :roll:

The Extra looks really nice, what kit are you putting in it?

It'd be good for us to come and have a fly at your place....you can teach Mathew some Heli flying stuff and he can teach you some plank stuff....ill just watch and do 'extreme' circuits...! :lol:

Most of its in tbh, bls 451 on ailerons and elevators, savox sa1256 rudder and savox sc0252 on throttle. Vbar neo on vplane with the vcontrol, direct life and gonna put a dle 55 in it when I've saved up enough pennies. Still not decided on exhaust yet, theres no tunnel in this model but can soon make one, but will prob just run stock to start with.

Also need to figure out smoke system and all that jazz, I'll get some detailed pics tomorrow n make a dedicated thread

And your welcome anytime for a fly, just lemme know when u want to come. And if you hadn't guessed I'm KevDavies on rcha

Will take you up on that Kev (I had guessed ;) ) Would it be ok to fly a Jet at your place?

Look forward to the thread on the Extra!

Cheers Dave.

I'm sure we can accommodate you . can u stop it in under 100m on tarmac? All the jets I've seen come in fast
