I've read that since Bham, Bergan has come out with an EB for the Observer. I understand that it is not belt drive any more, but the TT (torque tube) from the Intrepid EB.
Are there any pictures of the conversion parts?
I was wondering how you did away with the belt, and drive the new TT shaft from thre clutch bell.
I just purchased a nice set of 800mm high lift blades, and would like to use them.

Thanks,

Thanks BK, Sounds like its more involved than a simple boom conversion. If I have to replace half the airframe, or more, its probably not worth it.
Still would like to see some pics of the new EB Observer and the conversion, (if there is a conversion).

The conversion is quite extensive as Shawn mentioned. I believe it involves replacing all four frames, tail boom, tail gearbox, tail transmission, boom supports, and probably a few other bits.

I think there are pictures in the BHam FF thread, or Chris may have some. I don't think there are pix of the conversion kit yet as the prototypes is currently the only existing Observer EB.
