Hi,
I have had an unpainted Funkey AS350 fuselage sitting in the shed since May.
I've taken it out and had a look a couple of times but to be honest I've found it a little overwhelming. I just need to get over the speed bump of starting.
I have the mechanics flying smoothly, a 6s trex 600 with a skookum 570.
After reading the instructions I'm slightly confused by them. Can anyone point me to a step by step build guide to putting an unpainted funkey fuselage together. I'd like to learn from others if possible rather than trying to figure out what could go wrong.
My previous experience is a trex 500 tow defender with 4 bladed head which flys nice.

Cheers Andrew

What are your issues?...but, before anything.. wash the entire fuse in a good detergent so you get thorough glue adhesion.. I use "simple green".

Then I would recommend finding a good set of documents/pictures so you can get an accurate placement of the mechanics as far as mainshaft location/height...

this is the only instruction sheet I have seen:

http://www.centuryhelimedia.com/Man...31_AS350_50.pdf

It's not overly helpfull though. my buddy and I have one that we just modified to fly whith a DJI naza-H, and i'm still trying to get that sorted out. It flew well before that though. I think the only modifications we made to the fuselage was opening up the cutout for the main shaft and linkages to come through, and we also used some old Trex-450 landing gear as struts to brace the mechanics from the outside of the mounting board. I will post some pictures when I get home this weekend. Oh, yea. almost forgot the tail. We actually used a trex 700 tail boom and shaft and had it cut down slightly by a machinist friend of ours. The 600 boom was a little short, and the regular 700 too long.

Always looking for the expiration date

Many thanks,
That's a good tip about washing the fuselage.
Many thanks for the instruction booklet, mine is different and in a strange order to yours.

I need to dig it out again as I have buried it back in the shed, however I now feel motivated to start the build in the next week or two.

Cheers Andrew

I talked to my buddy. Disregard what I said about the tail boom. that was a different chopper. These pictures show the 450 landing gear that we re-purposed as struts.
