Greetings All,
I’m working on a semi-scale 500 using a CMS fuselage and was wondering if anyone has rotated their tail rotor 180 degrees, so it would be on the opposite side as it comes in the OEM set-up? I can’t think of any adverse effects of doing so but thought someone on here has surely tried it before. Thanks for your input guys/gals.

Flip the twist in the belt, too.

This will make the blades move up into the rotor wash again.

The servo will be on the top of the boom now, though. It might interfere witht eh scale fuse.

Yeah, if you flip it, the linkage rod needs to then be on top as well, it would be fine if the scale body allowed for it... just remember belt as well, to keep the tail going up into the heli, or the way I think of it, from the top it spins toward the end of the tail....
One last thing, the post on the frame will need to be trimmed off or the one in the tail case.. the one that holds the tail shaft in place.... cause on one side or the other, the posts won't match up...

But Honey, I can't live with just stock.....

Thanks for the input

Heres 2 quick photos I snaped to show the tale its a mix of MicroHeli and Duzi. I'm trying to keep it a flying state so I can test the mods before I start stripping it down to fit in the fuselage. Thanks for all your advice and any more that you have would be great as well, never have to much info.

Well I cant upload a photo. for the most part the only parts left from the factory kit are the skids, tail boom, tail rotor blades and main gear set everything else is either MicroHeli or Duzi running SAB mains.

Thanks again Guys

Kind Regards,

Jimmy
