yes i did change the gear ratio
if i remember correctly its got an 18 or 20t pinion on it but the ideal one is a 22 but needs to be made for it and you will run into trouble with the belt being too short
the std pinion is 14t
i went for the asp61 four stroke as it rev's higher than the os four strokes, the 51 may be too under powered as the 61 is a little weak, but the engine is still running in on 0% nitro

and i've got the crank nut tightend again on the four stroke 47 so hopefuly it will fly
and the tail gear box it back together on the white one, they haven't been tested but i will try to see if they'll fly

yes the head speed is around 1200-1400 mark but the electric one will go a lot higher

Thanks for the info it has been very helpful. Maybe I will put 2 stroke to get it flying. And think about getting bigger pulley made later, and go with a 61 four stroke.

with the 2 stroke the os46/50h and the tt50h fits ok
the hyper and red line have a little too much power for it
or you could always go back to original with a 40 size aero engine
or an os50 hyper with the 40e carb off the 50sxh

Thanks MK Heli Club.
had a great day on Sat (first fly in).

Very interesting meeting Jim and bought a new canopy and silencer off him.

450 pylon racing was fun to watch though the 50% mortality rate was a bit painful!!

Will be back next year I hope.

Hi all,
I am new to this forum and have just seen this thread on the Morley, I restored mine about 2 years ago and would like to meet up with you guys for a fly, guess I have missed it this year, only found it by a search for Morley Helicopters, still will keep an eye on the site for the next fly in.
Thanks.
Steve

Hi Steve
the next scale fun fly that my Morley's will be at is the LHC scale weekend (scale + pod n boom saturday scale only sunday)

this is on 20th & 21st September 2008
at
Leamington Hobby Centre
LHC Buildings
Leasowes Farm
Oxhill
Warwickshire
CV35 0RL
UK

http://www.lhc-rc.com
sales@lhc-rc.com

you can camp or there is quite a few B&B's in the local area (only 15 min drive from Stratford-upo-Avon , Shakespeare's home town)

if the 47 is based on a full size machine and you have pictures of the full size then take them with you and enter the LHC scale cup on the sunday , I placed 7th in the static and 4th in the scale cup with my electric Morley 47 in 2007
and Mike at LHC is a vintage heli nut

you will need proof of third party insurance (anything similar to the BMFA membership) you can contact the BMFA http://www.bmfa.org if your stuck for it

Thanks Dave, I look forward to seeing you and other Morley fans, fitting that Os 32 motor was a nightmare, but it flys ok, would like to get hold of the later rotor head as I feel it is a better set up. Its a shame as I only fly it a few times a year, my club seems to be T Rex or nothing
Steve.
Ps do you know what has happened to the Morley site, as I got my new glass bubble from them and got a few photos on there but now its just dead.

i think the chap doing the morley site gave up the morley's
he started buying and selling morley's on ebay, two of mine came off him as a box of crashed parts (he out bid me the first time they were listed and I paid less than he did for them)

as for the bubble jim morley still has some and the molds for them pm tish if you need to contact jim
you can make the hirobo shuttle head fit
or try and make the mavrick head fit although the mainshaft dia is bigger

how did you get the fan and drive pulley to fit the 32?
did you leave off the fly wheel?
i looked at a 30 size motor in one and realised that it was not a straight forward fit and put an os46 in the one

I fly mine only a few times a year also

we don't have many scale flyers in my club either and the new trend is to sell the trex for a vibe 50 or go to a 90 size but not many are having the 700

Like I said the Os 32 was not an easy fit, when I got the Morley it had a Royal 40 motor fitted, but thought the Os 32 would be a better motor. But on the Os the crankshaft is shorter, so had to move the engine back, this meant a new alloy engine plate had to be made, the fan cowling had to be cut down as well as making a thinner flywheel and counter boring the starter pulley so I had some thread showing to lock it all on, even now it is a very close fit but it all seems to work ok. Bud of Quick UK helped me out a lot, he cut me down some carbon blades to fit, cant tell you how I felt when I hovered it for the first time in the garden Its not been an easy restro, as I crashed it on the first flight through a massive radio glitch close to the ground, this broke the undercarrige, canopy, tail rotor, and plastic bubble, lucky I got a new one from Dave on the morley site plus a new set of tail blades. So now it flys ok, sort of, the tail does not feel very powerfull and turns with the torque ok, but if a little windy struggles the other way ! Tried to copy my Raptor head and made some alloy arms on the swash plate this gave me a lot more control but still not great, will fly great if not too windy. Years ago I had a Morley 300C, this had the plastic blade grips and the new head and flew great, think this was the head that was on the Mavrick but not sure, it also had the free wheeling auto bearing that my 47 has not. I have now fitted it with all new PCM Futaba radio and have never had a problem after the rebuild, not happy with the yellow tank, and the tail never seems to sit still but I still love it to bits, looks good flying big lazy circuits with the lights on, hope that the pics will show you the few mods I had to make, the first is how I got it, a real basket case.

Hey Guys, Just thought I'd post to say hi and thanks for the info in here. I know Payne from RCMF who has helped me a lot of late. I have gone a bit morley nuts I'm afraid, I have at the moment, 4 x 300 hughes in bits, a 47 g in bits and the rear half and mechanics from a morley huey! I also have several other helicopters like shuttle's hawks etc that I am trying to graft parts of onto the morleys.
Hope you guys still follow this thread as I will be needing all the tips I can get.
I also have an engineer friend that has just started to scratch build one making all the parts himself. He has just finished the 47g tail section which he has made an excellent job of and has fitted a century hawk wire driven tail to.
I also have lots of morley instructions if anyone needs any and I have nearly all the original (unchopped)47g plastics including canopy and a large box of morley spares.
