Trex 600n Flight Log - Flight #105

Nov 21

Weather was crap today.  One weekend we have blazing heat, the next its drizzling LOL

I only squeezed in one flight today.  Even that flight was a wet one, with the drizzle starting to fall about half way through the flight.

Well I can thankfully say that this is the first flight since upgrading to the inolab servos that I didn't have a glitch :)

Since the last flight, I have replaced the tail belt as the old one was starting to fray along the edges (it's also done over 100 flights), and I also ran an earthing wire connecting the tail boom, RC-Booya canopy mount, and upper and lower main shaft bearing blocks finally being grounded to the motor.

I guess that as there was no glitching today that it is safe to assume that the issue has been static electricity build up.
Wether fitting the grounding wire has fixed the issue or not, I won't know until I fly on a dry warm day.

Maximum temperature for the flight was 98c.
