Hey,

Just a piece of advice, if you ever come across a tall chap with a white van smilie that preaches about a certain make of engine. Please refrain from taking this advice into account. It bogged down and caused a crash. I think this chap is on commission with a bin liner company as he had plenty to offer for the wreckage. Also after the crash he even had every spare part i required to repair the sorry mess. smilie

Many Thanks

Stan

I would never offer advice if i couldnt sell a spare part smilie

And as for the bin liners they are FOC smilie

P.S Every engine I have ever had has coughed at some time or other, the important bit is to find out why!

Dear oh dear..
Worrying when a man flogging old sceadu and parts because the heli is oh so good that he actually amits(Quote)Every engine I have ever had has coughed at some time or other(/Quote)

Oh yes don't we know it stan.. but hey they can't cut out in a van.

Well done to Stan for actually flying a west in the breeze today. Shame that sack of nasty harsh shite failed and shafted the model for you.

It was nice however to see you have taken a mature approach and bought a second model. Having a proper heli like a 90 showed its true colours today in the breeze. Superb bit of flying, far nicer to watch than that crapper plastic 50 that ended up broken by a west.

Shame i got conned into buying a foooking west. I turned it over when I got it and found it to be rough as hell. And as for the exhaust.. Well the nipple looks like it was smashed into the raspy pipe with a lump hammer.

Stick to the Millennium with YS Stan. Today was 100% testiment to that.
Looks like we just found our second "club clown".

Oh well shite happens, all part of the fun i guess. I am impressed with the millenium but just feels slightly uneasy to fly having that possible crash bill hovering above you.

I still really like the Sceadu and without making the man with the white vans head even bigger. The power from the West is awsome so im gonna change all plumbing check for tank leakage replace all rubbers on the engine and hope for the best.

Cant wait for this Align 700......... A 90 with cheap spares!!!

Cheers

well i flew your millenium today stan,and it's a lot better your the sceadu by miles,in fact it really puts it to shame. the sceadu seems to have a nasty gearyness about it.I'd say you have a winner there.don't worry about the crash costs,the milleniums air frames are plentifull nowadays,you don't have to buy all the crash parts if you look out for secondhand airframes. smilie

Maybe before you progress further into 3D flying learning to auto a helicopter would be a good idea. smilie

Unfortunatly flying a west means you need to be able to autorotate a model as I have never seen or had any OS, YS, Nova Rossi, thunder tiger, or even MDS cough or spluter smilie smilie
