I have a Hobbico Avistar. I am removing the covering and puting ultracote on it, with custom trim tape, and checkerboard decals. I am also puting rivets on the Avistar to simulate the real one, as well as sacle robart strut covers. I intend on entering scale competition with this plane, as it took a great ammount of artistic skill and talent to cut the monokote and take out the wrinkles with the heat gun.

Hi Guys,

why the hostility, if it's so easy to do why don't you try to do what I did. The wench works on the rescue Heli and I shortened the crew men to give a more scale look. To compare this project to an ARF is idiotic and makes my 2nd place victory over your AH-1 even sweeter. The heli that came in 1st place was a factory painted CH-53. I'm sorry if I insulted you by entering my model in the contest I thought people might like to see it.

Sealerman you just don't get it!
I will put this in terms that even you will get..... You put no effert in detailing the bird, it was done on an assembly line.... you mearly mounted a set of mechanics in it which did take some inginuity in doing so...

If i was building a heli that incorporated a winch i would also have one that worked and would have built it myself. I am far from bitter that you took second place as your heli did look good. if your building and detailing skills are as good as you think they are then enter another heli next year and see what happens. even better enter the scale compitition at IRCHA next year as well.

Enough Said..

Hi,

The winch does work thank you very much, but I don't understand why you are getting so nasty. I do understand where you are coming from, I simply took a heli I am proud of to a show that I did not care how it placed and you did not get the recognition that you so obviously need. If you had won we would not be having this stupid conversation, so na na na I beat you with a toy heli made in China get a life.

I am not trying to be nasty but you said i was arrogant and petty so as it stands you started it. I am all for showing off your stuff and taking pride in the work you have done. and as i have stated before i am not bitter about you winning second over me. that was not the intent of my first post.

lets be friends now and put this to rest..

Vibration

I'm finishing up a Toys R Us Fire Rescue with Hawk mechanics. Have any of you seen any vibration problems when flying these models ? There's a lot of plastic parts on these models!

mark.

Hi Lewma,

I built the Rescue heli and had no problems with vibration at all. The Heli looks great in the air I will post some pics of it flying, you can't tell it's a model.

Good luck.

well..after searching the web, K&B Toys, and the local Toys R Us...no luck. But I did find one on Ebay for $80. The black CIA one.

If anyone has photos of Hawk Mods, let me know...I will be putting a Hawk Sport in mine.

Hey guys,
continue looking at Toys R Us. I still see them hanging on display at some of them.
I bought two of them with pilots for $35.00 each at a Toys R Us. I just asked for the manager and asked to buy them. If they say no the first time, go back a while later and ask again. i had to ask three times before I got these. But they are like new WITH pilots at a give away price.

good luck.

Looks real nice...
From the pics...one of the best jobs I have seen yet...Really like the Lower mechs standoffs from the bottom of the fuse.

Did you fly it yet...Gotta tell us how it feels.

Flew the bird today. All up flying weight approx 10 lbs.

OS.32 SXH, OS#8 plug, Morgan Cool Power (green stuff) 15% heli, Vortex carbon 550s symetrical, stock tr blades.

Lift off at maybe 1 click over 50% throttle, if that. Had to reduce gyro gain to 70% in GY (HH) mode due to no braces on tail. Responsive, handsoff hover in normal and HH modes. No excessive vibration.

Stock skids worked great. There is alot of weight on the rear of the skids, so you have to be picky when searching for the LZ.

Next flight will explore FF flight. Don't anticipate any problems there.
Engine appears normal temp after a 5 min run at hover.

I read somewhere here where someone mentioned that 10lbs is too much for the OS32 and 550s. Thats horsefeathers. I have flown the Century Twinstar and Airwolf and both were heavy. The Airwolf was easily 10lbs. Having the right throttle / pitch curves and a well tuned engine is the key. I could easily drag a bambi bucket or cargo load with this bird.

Happier 'n a pig ina mudhole

what are the current mechanics for an electric version? i have heard of the hawk sport (?) but have no idea how old the heli design is. since i have been flying for just under a year with fixed pitch helism i have decided to step up to this project.

i REALLY dont want to go way of gasser. to me it detracts for the scale look,from all the billowy smoke, the oil/grime-cleanup, and just the fact that i gotta fuel it,deal with glow plugs and such.

i am wondering if i could make an internal frame using the green circuit board material to hook up what i want, how i want... could work possibly?
