Gonzalo

You have told me this often but you dont like to fly your Lama in the wind. This is because the disk isn't level and the slightest breath of wind causes it to bob up and down making it difficult to control. My Lama is as noisy as heck due to that exhaust, but I'll fly it in the wind as it flies level, and there is only 0.5lb lead in the nose.

My 212 has 6lb of lead in the nose right now and hovers fairly level, but still bobs around all over the place even in the slightest breeze.

I think the consensus of opinion is that you cant make them fly completely level just by putting weight in the nose. If you have a rearward thrust vector, you will have the tail down to give a countering forward thrust vector from the disk

The other problem with adding loads of weight for those of us living in the UK is that it will take you over the 20kg mark and that requires certification. That is a concern for the Vario Lama Turbine I'm building. Fortunately, Gonzalo was kind enough so sell to me his modified exhaust so I will go for the noisy solution.
That Gazelle is agreat project. Peter, you probably know that they are coming out with an updated version soon.

Fredd, I have gone with this fuselage,the updated one only carries rivits, I cut my own opening hatch's I can do that, in an inflated price tag, which I do not want to pay
I am waiting for the new fenestron though, that I think will be an improvement,
still waiting on delivery, paid in full for it 11th December 2009

Peter W, whatever you end up doing, please post back here. I'm very curious to know how this ends up.

Forgot to mention earlier , that I set the main shaft more upright than the plans show , this was to counter the tail hang. In so doing it was supposed to level the body , maybe to a small degree this has helped , but far from perfect!!

WHAT GOES UP MUST SURELY COME DOWN.
