Hi everyone,

im new to scale, i am more the hard 3d pilot but have always had a passion for scale helicopters.

I recently bought a Miniature aircraft Ion - X 90 sized electric which i thought would be Excellent for scale as it would sound like a Turbine but without having to spend a HELL of alot of money on a real turbine.

I Love the Huey UH-1B helicopter, and i thought it would suit the ionx because it has big sized doors which would be excellent for easy access to the batteries which are mounted on either side of the helicopter..

now i havent measure up the height width or lenght with batteries on the ion, but ive been looking at this huey here,

http://www.centuryheli.com/products...entid=159?49,42

now the only thing im really really worried about which might stop me is the compatabilty with the 60 - 70 degree angled tail end on the UH-1B Huey, but in this kit it does say all the tail parts required are in the kit...

Has anyone out there put an Miniature Aircraft ionx into a scale or that could help me out..

Cheers,
Matty O'Connell

If you could make that work, it will be awesome Do consider the extra weight from the fuselage and make sure you get some killer batteries to get you at least a 5-8 minute flight time

ok i have done further investigation into it, and in the compatability chart it does have fury 60, xcell 60 etc so i think mounting the ionx shouldnt be a problem.

i've only looked in the century fuses so far, but have my eyes firmly set on the Black Hawk in there, as it has side sliding doors for easy access to the batteries (to pull in and put back in for charging etc) also for maintenance around the motor area.

here's a link...what do you think???

http://www.centuryheli.com/products.../Blackhawk.html

as said, weight Could be an issue being electric. If there are any electric freaks in here im running Hacker C50 motor, with 55Tooth Secondary gear, 0-77heliesc, 690mm vblades.

as std as mine is, it weighs about 10lbs, and as it says on the website flying weight would be 11LBS to 13LBS. I am not too sure on how much this extre bit of weight would affect the heat/current draw of battery speed controller etc.

Cheers,

The Black Hawk is not very big. The have it marketed for 60 size machines but it's more suited for 50's. A friend of mine had one and the swash of his mechs sits well above the top of the fuse and the tail is not looking to be a fun fit. I would get the UH.

Vario makes a few bodies that your Ion will fit into with ease as well.

If you're still interesed in the Black Hawk, my friend has talked about selling his. He modified some of the glasswork to make it Coast Guard J Hawk instead of a Black Hawk.

Hi Chris,

Thanks for your reply, so that black hawk isnt that big?, yeah i thought it would have had a fair size body seeing it also says for a 90 size as well.

the only thing that i don't know about is that UH-1B is that i am pretty sure those sliding doors do not open(the century fuse that is). And i would like biggish sliding side doors for easy access to Batteries.

im checking out what vario have now.

any help appreciated
Cheers,
matty
