Trex 600n Flight Log - Flights #56 and #57

Apr 4

Down at SARCH the weather was yuck compared to last weekend, but still very flyable.

Heli seemed strange today.  The engine rpm was low compared to last weekend, with no changes made to the tune.  It was also very tail heavy as well.  I had to put in about 10clicks of forward cyclic to get the heli to sit nicely and not lurch backwards toward me.

I did my first 6 minute flight with left to right side in hovers, a small amount of extremely shakey nose in.

When i went to fill up for the second flight, i noticed that the header tank was half empty.  I filled the tank up and while it was filling i could see fuel spurting and hitting the top of the tank - Split clunk line.  So I will be replacing the clunk line later today.

Second flight was a bit better than the first.  A bit more nose in and lots more left to rights.  This flight was probably 7 minutes, with the last small bit doing some nice steady hovering about 30cm off the ground waiting for the header tank to run out of fuel.
