That's me
Here's our
Field Mascot

New to this hobby in May 2003
I was down at the hobby shop picking up a part for a nitro car.
I saw this Hummingbird and asked for a "demo" - That's it, I was screwed!
Currently up to 16 Helis(!) I NEED HELP!!!
Guess I should learn to fly better.....

Beautiful day!

Heh Heh Heh
Is that ugly
(cruel pic Andysan! ;-)
Woo Hoo!
I broke the PINIATA!
Now I can gather
up all the tasty
goodies out of it!

Century Airwolf
My First Scaler
Good kit overall
but the fiberglass was
formed such that the
Horizontal fins wouldn't
Join at level
Still looks cool
Getting the retracts
setup was the
hardest part
I eventually
Installed lights in it.
Also a pain!
Here you can make
out the light installation
Beacon on top
R/G on the fuse sides
Search Light in the nose
Strobe at rear/ underside

You can almost hear
That theme song!
The TT Carbons are
The perfect look for
this Kit
I painted up the T/R
Blades to match
Hirobo Lama 30
Here you can see
the setup for remote
Fuel and Glow
Simplest setup
This muffler came
standard with the kit
Not scale, but functional
I had a lot of fun
with the Airbrush
on this project

Here you can see
the Lama's panel
I painted the instruments
and illuminted them
from the rear
These are the
GEM2000 Heli lights
I used a similar set
on the Airwolf
Lama Cockpit
Nice details for
a $500 Kit
Hey - Does this
probably not!
It is pretty Cute
Fun to Taxi through
the living room...

Andysan with his
4-bladed project
It's cold here
on November 30th!
Andysan's X-cell

Hard to beat
when I need to relax
Especially when the weather
is good.
Only dilemma?
Sailing or Flying?
With only 225 ever
made for the US market
it took me over 5 years
to find this car
Worth the wait!

A really stupid Project - The inverted Hummingbird
10710 views HELP-FAQ

OK, so I had this really stupid urge to get the fixed-pitch Hummingbird to go inverted
I had the right idea with the setup, but it just wasn't going to happen
Here's a link to that thread:
Thread - Inverted Hover - Please talk me out of this  

Here the blades are swapped
and I've reversed the motor polatity
This the the reversed
Tail Rotor
I had to strap it in place
Thr Gyro needed to be
flipped since the rotor
directions are now reversed
I'm sure you can guess
how well this worked!
