more in the gallery, just for the record the machining was not done by me but done by Cforcht, the polish job and the rest of the outfit was me....

Ask your Doctor if getting off your ass is right for you.

What about homemade like without all the normal parts that looks different.

Here is a home built heli I made last winter. Started from scratch in Autocad and almost every thing hand made including several differnt types of fiberglass boards used for the structure. Only parts purcahsed where the gears, tailprop, and bearings. The motors where made from cd rom parts. They are a 16 turn 22mm motor on 5:1 gear for main rotor and a 19-turn 22mm motor on the tail. The main rotor is 12" and the tail rotor is 4". It lifts at about half throttle on a CC25 using 3s 880mah lipo. In the video I did not have an Esc for the tail so it is flying tied between 2 chairs to control yaw. Built from some 1/32" and 1/16" fiberglass sheet I made, carbon tube and rod, 1/8" steel rod main shaft and motor shafts, brass and aluminum tube for the motor tube and main shaft tube.

It flew but never real well. Was a great prototype for materials, methods and ideas though. My new scrathbuilt is much more advanced and looks more promising so far. I should get some pics of it soon.

A Beautiful Antique

This is a picture of Faye Peoples and his handcrafted machine. This picture was taken at Southbend, Indiana in 1978. I am told he still has it and it still flies.

This is picture of myself and Bill Youmans with a couple of Homebrew machines we flew in competition in 1978.

This is a picture of Bill Youmans with his Hombrew in Orlando, Florida January 1978.

This a a photo of Mike Mas with his Homebrew at TRAC in Tampa, Florida November 1977.

This is a picture of Don Rothman with his little Hughes 300 Homebrew

Here are a few pictures of a Homebrew helicopter that was built and flown at the 1978 Nats by Hubert Bitner. It really flew great.

Those were the days of Handcrafted, Homebrew, Fixed Pitch, Non Computer Radio/Non-Gyro/Non-Governor Radio Control Systems. Boy, we have come a long way.

Just some stuff I thought you might enjoy from the Ole Days. You can check out my gallery and homepage for other Oldie Stuff.

I made this Hornet frame. I made CAD drawings of the parts and printed out templates and then machined the CF and aluminum parts using my Dremmel. The head, gears and tail rotor is aftermarket Hornet parts. More pictures in my gallery.
