you would be better off getting the fusew from Thunder Tiger with the Rapter 60. Nice flying machine plus it looks like a million!

Go for it, it's a great project if you enjoy problem solving.
As for trying to match Jetset65's one night assembly record, good luck.
If you take your time you can make a respectable scale ship.

If you need any help let me know, I've done 4 and I'm redoing my Rescue version now.

I'm planing on using a nexus 30 s type i have 3 of them and can scrap one down. i think i can cut enough of the frame away to make a good fit.

I did a Nexus Littlebird. Pics in the gallery.

As Sealerman said, if you like problem solving, you'll love this project.

I was going to take some more pictures (last weekend) showing the whole bird, but the new puppy got in the way.

Should be able to take some this weekend and post Monday.

Ah-6 little bird

hi: Nightow1
If your heli has ccpm. you will be able to make a nice ah-6. A lot of flyers have done this project. and it's nothing new. It will give you a semi scale ship for low dollers. You can put 4000 hours into your Ah-6 like some guys do, but it will still have toy look to it. It's easy to put the heli in the body. It will take some time to scale it out after that. Try not to forget the hole thing behind the world of R/C. Build it, Fly it, And over all ,,Have fun with it and if others don't like,,, well, you know what they can do.
If you you need help, drop a line and i am sure someone will have an answer.
Good Luck.

If I put a 5 bladed head on these helis it would be very hard to tell if they were real or not in the air.

It's much easier to build kit heli that is designed to take heli mechanics.

Very true.
you know what they can do.
No please tell us.
