here are the hinges being fitted. They will be removed for painting i think they turned out great . The screws that hold the hinges together will be the correct size these are just to fit it only.

here is a picture i found in the Vario catalog that Rocket Rotors sent me. They did not realize they just helped me out in finding the drop down light i needed . I Will be buying this light. I just need to alter some things with the light and make a round holder that houses the light. I may make a small servo, to move it up and down by remote, while not in use as seen in the picture of the G jive. When ever i find more detail i just can't stop im going after it.

G-JIVE, Video
James, It has taken a while to find this footage
Looking at the full size, I am not sure if the landing light does swing down
Hope Mike will not mind showing his flight

I'm placing all the antennas, also besides the fold down light. Vario has a fold down light thats about a $100 affordable for me. PS i think it's a compliment to Mick P. for placing his video on my thread, besides he is a great pilot he needs to show off his skills, now and then

Jim Cheers

Question:
Does anyone have a picture or a acurate placement for one of my decal logos it's proper place were it goes. The logo says Keep Hole & Surface Clear does anyone know were it goes on the helicopters body . I do know it goes on the forward part of the boom but nothing else.

thanks

That sounds like it would be for the static air vent. You would have to look at the G Jive 500 to see where it is located on that helicopter. Most helicopters will have them located on the side of the helicopter where there is little to no air to distrurbance. The 500 I'm scaling after has it located on the back of the doghouse just in front and on top of the tailboom.

It is the little silver dot on the yellow dog house above the boom. Hope this helps.

I do have few more, but none of the cockpit area. I will get them posted in my gallery. The photos were given to me by the new owners of the helicopter. A Dr. in Idaho used to own this one and he let me fly it around the pattern when I was doing my CFI training. It was a really smooth flying helicopter. I say it "was" because I knew how it was taken care of and the Doc only used it for personal flights and the new company uses it for powerline maintenance over on the eastcoast. I'm sure it is still a smooth flyer.

James, glad I was able to help and good luck.

UPSguy, here are those photos, they're also in my gallery. This is a Hughes 500 D model with the upgraded full tinted glass E model nose. The interior is an all white plush leather and it seats 5, a pilot and four passengers. The large stripe is a multi-color and it changes when the sun light hits it. Enjoy and try not to drool too much .

I have been kinda lucky as I have flown most of the helicopters that are in my gallery. The big yellow helicopter is a CROMAN SH-3H (S-61) and it may be big but it sure flies like a hughes 500 and it does not feel very big. That picture was taken at the Bakersfield Airport in Bakersfield California when I ferried it down there from White City, Oregon for a fire contract.

Here's more progress pictures, but i have a long ways to go on detail that will be on this bird. Retractable belly light, more body detail, also. After the paint job, there will be some more there too. Im waiting for some part's to be delivered.

The tail fin will be improved i do not like the way it turned out doing some improvemnts on it.
