July 18th 2008

Owing to an intense workload in my full-time job, I have not been able to do much testing and reviewing of late (nor indeed flying due to poor weather again). That said, I have several things under ongoing review which will be published when they are ready. Gyro testing is taking up a lot of time, as is governor testing among other things. Lots to come, so please stay tuned!

Finally, due to unforeseen circumstances the review of the Pantera 50 will no longer be published. For more details on this helicopter please visit www.jperkinsdistribution.co.uk

February 6th 2008

Align governor (HE50H09) review published. Due to having serious datalogging issues, there are no datalogs at this time, but they will be added in due course.

 

The site was forced into a short hiatus due to incredibly poor weekend weather conditions and xmas all getting in the way of flying.

Following that, a close friend's wife almost died (I'm pleased to report that she is recovering well) which meant that I was unable to devote enough of my time to this project to keep the content flowing. Things are now looking up and returning to normal, so I'll be working hard to try and catch up in the coming weeks...

...weather permitting, of course!
