I built the Airwolf that Joe has been flying. That is of course unless he bought another one. What do you want to know? I have a lot of pics from the build. I will post them if you are interested.

airwolf

the one i built is a 30 size and i havent done a 60 nin recent years but will help anyway i can
i know that they come gel coated with a primer gray coating, the wing pods are molded separately, clear windows and look very nice when done. as with most of century fuses, it is universal and designed to accept most 60 size mechs. you will have mods to do. how much mods depends on the machine. i think the century predator, miniature's xcell and similar will fit without too many mods. the more compact the mechs, the better the fit. preferably something with a shaft/tube driven tail

Retracts

Once I figured out what to do with the retracts, it was a very easy installation and it functioned perfectly every time. The key to success is making sure that the pushrod exiting the retract unit extends all the way out so that the retracts will lock. I used 2 Y harnesses to connect all three retract servos.

i assume the front retract plugs into one end of the Y, the the single side of the other Y harnesss goes into the other lead not used by the front retract, then the rear retracts into the double end of that Y harness, with the first Y harness into the reciever. what about servo reversing? where can i get the linkages you used to connect the servo pushrod to the retract rod? what about the tail drive? use stock boom? i will be using an xcell 60, if i can find one cheap. i have been fling gassers, because i am not good with glow engines. spend more time tinkering then i do flying!

Greg

You are correct about the servo and y-harness connections. The linkages will have to be set-up so that all three servos operate the retracts in the proper direction. If you have a high end transmitter that allows you to assign different channels to the same switch, you can use 3 seperate channels. This will allow independent adjustment of reversing and endpoints. The same could also be achieved with programable mixes.

The ball links are model airplane hardware but helicopter links can be used instead. The pushrods were Raptor spares.

I used the stock tailboom and torque tube drive. X-Cell mechanics fit perfectly if the muffler is mounted up side down so that the exhaust exits towards the front.

Add Me To The Airwolf Owners Group

I took the plunge Sat. and ordered a Century 60 size Airwolf (kit version)...... I'll be installing my Hirobo Eagle for mechanics, and will go with 3 Futaba 136g retract servos for the gear, and air for the belly missles and wingtip guns
