Thanks! You'll be there before you know it. It's a pretty quick build if you go the stock route. I got fancy and used different mechanics and tail drive.

Mojave,

It looks like you're using a clutch on the skyfox mechanics, what's the gearing ratio and rpm with this setup? Looks good.
How do you have the clutch attached to the scorpion shaft?

Thanks! I made a custom motor shaft from a trex500 mainshaft, shortened it, tapped one end for the clutch retaining bolt and cut the snap ring groove. The clutch is retained by the stock vario method, 8mm cone with retaining bolt. The main gear is vario 65 tooth, had to clearance the frames a little to fit it (no biggie). The pinion is 20 tooth, the secondary drive is 4:1. The head speed should come in around 1200 with the esc governed at 85%.

Frame Sizes

FROM: the 600 Choas Build Forum
Started the frames today. The frames on the Chaos are wider than the Trex 600 ESP.
I have a spare Trex esp base plate that I measured. It’s 47 mm wide the Chaos is 54 mm
Hello
Again More Questions
I have a guestion on frame width,
BACKGROUND: I just got a 600 Chaos, I will use the mechanics in a RC Aerodyne 800 size Huey, a lot of parts will not be used from the kit, like the standard carbon frame( Huey uses a short frame) complete head, tail, tail boom, landing gear, canopy etc, I decided to build another 3d Heli from the left over parts plus items that needed to be purchased.
I need to start with Bearing Blocks and Inside Frame Parts. I was thinking of using KDE upgrades and was told that the 600e Choas is 53 mm and the 600 Trex is 47mm, and I would have to use 3mm spacers between to make up the diffrence. However, I have a Trex 600 Nitro and was looking and found that the Nitro frame looks like and measures the exact width of the of the Chaos 600E.

QUESTIONs: Am I correct in these observations? Is the 600 Nitro the Same width as the 600E Chaos? What bearing blocks is will fit the Choas frame? Are they using Trex 600 Nitro Bearing Blocks? I know the base plate is diffrent between the Nitro and the electric, Wonder where they are getting the wide base plate from?
Hope anyone can help clear this up. Thanks

1. The Choas frames are the same width as the 600 nitro.
2. THey are using thier bearing blocks that are the same size as the nitro bearing blocks.
3.They are not "getting" the baseplate from anyone they make the wider baseplate for the Chaos.

Hope this helps

You had me at Hover

Mojave I know what you mean about work...
I am on the road one week and in the office the other week.
My huey is painted in dust

I leave for Oklahoma and Texas on Sunday but plan on having three days off when I get back next week so maybe I can sneak into the workshop and get some work done plus give my son flying lessons.
My son has completed five combat tours (in Iraq and Afghanistan) and is now stationed one hour from home so I am giving him a RTF Swift to get him back into helis.

He's already got his eye on an airwolf

Will do Mojave... I'm very proud of him and as he opens up more to me about his experiences I thank God that he came home safe and in one piece. Thanks for your kind words.

Yes, that huey really needs to get done before Emile kicks my butt

So I modded the tail support tube today. I milled a slot in it so I can access the set screws for the contour drive. That way I can just remove the tail gearbox without having to pull the entire drive out of the heli.

Very observant aren't we Here's a vid of the spool up. I think the clutch bolt needs to be tightened a bit. It started slipping at higher rpm. I'll have a look at it before the maiden.

Now that is a nice spool up!!
sounds great and maintains a lot of the "whistle" in the motor for a great sound.

great job Mojave!!

Figured out the problem with the spool up. The guy who sold the mechanics to me forgot to mention that the 1 way bearing had been flipped for right hand rotation... I'm so used to right hand that it slipped past me during the build...DOH The main will still spin with no real load on it, but the rpm will overcome it at some point. Had I installed blades for the test, it probably wouldn't have spun at all. Live and learn...

Here's the new spool up vid. We got it right this time

Nice nice nice!

The Huey is lookin good.

The long work weeks do make it hard to get a build done. I thought I had it bad traveling 5 days a week with occasional home time.
