Looks cool!! Hey Chuck , is that Chris in the background with his Stinger 90 ?
Did the different tail blades get rid of the shakes? I hope so .. The boom braces look real good!!
Hey , those MScomposite 420mm blades I sold you look awsome!! Just curious, did they speed up the cyclic and collective , as opposed to those old flat bottom wood blades?
that EP-8 sure looks different than any EP-8 I ever saw , I kinda like that canopy, and the black does look good!!!WOW!!
Looking good!!!!
How is the 5mm spindle idea we come up with working ?

Jimbo, No the shake was still there. That is why I put the tail support. After that spooled it up there was no shaking or vibration. The ms composit blades did speed up the cyclic response. Thanks again for the blades.

I can answer for Chuck , cause he got the blades from me , they are MScomposite 420mm blades , and he is using them on the stock length EP-8 , I think the tail blades are whittled down .50 size Ghobee plastic blades ? Chuck flies alot of Ghobees, he has a whole fleet of them ,like 4x .90 size and 2-3x .50 size , All realy sweet helis!!

Hi Chuck,

What was holding me back for getting the EP8 is the stock landing gear/skid. I like the one installed on your EP8. What landing skid are those?

Thanks.
