Its a mostly electric airplane event Stan. Darrell and I have been there the last 2 years and of the 500 or so pilots there were about 10 heli pilots there last year.

Surprisingly, in 2009 I won best of show there with my 47G

If you want to go it's at Mac Hodges field in Southern Ga and runs the whole week from April 11th through 16th

Last year I got there on the Wednesday and set up my helis for charging up ready to fly next day. Thursday much of the day was taken over by a glider contest. We got some flying in on Friday but the patch was very rough and there was really only enough room for us to fly one at a time. Saturday I had problems with my bus and left for home but Darrell stayed and got washed away in a torrential rainstorm.

We dont plan to be there this year

Rock on Huey vid...

Very cool vid. Takes me back 30+ years to my days riding the jump seats and manning the 60 in the door. It was post NAM and I never saw combat, but we sure had fun training and wasting ammo

I tip my hat and say thanks to the guys that did see combat and a reverant bow to those that gave all...

Mojave, can you or anyone else post that link on here from the previous page to show the video? For some reason nothing I do is working, all I get is the link itself.

Thanks

Back At It..... Finally

Well, I finally got back to work and got the tail drive installed... as you can see in the pic's, I did it so that the entire unit could be removed if/when a belt change is required.... it took a little heat to get the rear cover to go into place, but it looks more "scale" not being perfectly flat..(that is my story and I am sticking to it!!!!!) Also I broke the control arm that was on it
so made up one from bits and pieces in the shop... but it had a little too much slop in it, so now there is a nice new metal arm on there...
Got flying video of it and will do my best to have someone besides me try to get it posted on here.... it was only of a test hop, but it is pretty close to being dialed in... now onto the fun stuff!!!! Stan

Stan, looking good! I like the modular approach to the tail. Now if I could only get the remaining parts for my build. Still waiting for the clutch spacer and blades...

Tail control complete. Used goldenrod and made some wood bulkheads. I'll show pics of the mounting inside the fuse later. Control runs super smooth, with no binding. I left enough goldenrod above the bulkhead to allow the pitch arm to run through it's arc.

Tail cap is installed. Stan, gotta tell ya, you were right on this one. That tail cap install was a PITA!!! Bad fit, lots of heat, gonna need more screws The problem was the vert stab wood kit. It was a tad too wide. Like trying to squeeze a fat chick into a small pair of jeans Had I known this, I would have removed some material from the sides before bonding it in the stab. Took some heat and a bit of stretching to get it installed.

LMAO!!!!!!!!!!

Looks like you got it though!!!!!! Looking real good....

So,....... Have you met my wife!!!!!!!

What do you need to finish up for the test hop???
At 12lbs 8ozs (as mine sits with batteries) this thing flies like there is nothing under the blades!!!!!!! I think I may end up adding some weight just to get some "mass" under the head... it is VERY LIGHT for this size heli..... sure likes to auto this way!!!!!!

Nope, haven't met your lovely wife...right answer? I still need a rotor head and blades and to set up the vbar. I got the clutch spacer, so I'm good to go. Thinking I might just run a RJX fbl head for the time being. Can't wait to fly her. At that weight she'll be very nimble and responsive. Wait, maybe I have met your wife...

Hi Mojave,

did you think in fly without FBL, I mounted a big Robbe Futura Se 800mm blades just mechanic phasing and was my better, smooth and predictable flight ever

Just do a test, can save U$S 200 easy, easy!!!, is not just for the money in my case.

Can see the video in my youtube channel...

Good Info...

Manuel,
Good info on the blades and your set up... NICE flying too!!!!!
Are the blades you used actually made by or handled by Robbe???
I used NHP 800's on mine but I am still running a flybar... BUT, I may have to join Moave and go FBL too.... I would not mind trying it without a stabi system, just to give it a go.... yours certainly looks great in the video....

Thanks, Stan

Hi Stan,

Thanks for your comments

This blades are old NHP 800mm, I do not know for sure from where, this heli has at least 7 years old, the first time I saw was almost four years ago, then pass a year and half before the owner ask me to re-build, and another year and half to finish...that because at first running with an glow engine, we both don't like, too many issues with that power plant, since this first flights was FBL without electronic, then I suggest to make the electric conversion, I took the idea and specs of the conversion from Rick and his post in rcscalehelis forum.

The flight is what you can see, just perfect, note the head high speed, the heli is heavy, uo to 8,5 kgm with two 6S batteries.

The blades don't need any mods, I added weight and don't see any differences after this flight.

The rotor head is the original, just took off the flybar, put new longer links beetwen swash plate and blade grips, a bolt in the washout to lock in to the main shaft to adjust the phasing and the most important 20 degress of phasing, this can be noticed in my video, after the fligt is a still image from above, note the position of the rotorhead/blades relative to the fuselage...

Hi Manuel, I had actually seen that vid a while back, when doing another search on the net. Very nice looking ranger. I noted the phasing during your spool up. You're very right, I could fly my helis without the vbar. But to be quite honest with you, I love the way they fly with vbar. I like the set up and they flat out fly so smooth. I bring my laptop to the field, so tuning is plug-n-play. It also lets you do the phasing electronically, so the head geometry is much better. I have 6 vbars right now and see more in my future Almost bought another one the other day, but I'm watching my heli budget until I get the cast off my leg and go back to work.

Hi Mojave,

I see your point and fully understand, in fact in litle helis I become fan of the Align 3G, because is really nice to fly with it and is cheap and easy to setup.

The project MD500 / Rex 250 , I have one 3G, but maybe a Mini Vbar was a good option too...what your thought about ??
