Hi F3j,
I see from the pictures in the heli factory website that they are using a y harness. Is that the solution? Any experience?
Thanks

I was flying a Lama with the HeliFactory tanks. Y connection as also shown in the Jakadofsky manual, plus the tanks are stiffer (and better looking) than the Vario oil containers.

Y harness works perfectly well. For in series, you need more rigid tanks and larger fittings.

Thanks,
I will change my setup from series to Y.
I also ordered the hell-factory tanks. I plan to build a tank that will fill the two covers and "embed" the mechanics, being so more scale and allowing a greater capacity

OK Guys,

Some clarification:
Name: Gonzalo Martinez
name at runryder and other forums is: gonzalom

The Vario Lama doesn't need the exhaust with holes on the side. The Vario exhaust with no modifications works too perfection. She hover quite level plus it runs cooler and a lot more quiet a LOT.

I used to have those holes in the past per Peter W. recomendations and it was not need it at all.... Peter owns me the current exhaust I have in my Lama ..... its OK Peter we all make wrong suggestions

She hover quite level

Gonzalo, read this post and have been waiting for a quiet day
Just back from the flying field, and would like to pose a question
How have you eliminated the thrust?
My Lama is the stock Vario/Jakodofsky, and try as I have I can not hover on the spot level without moving forwards
It is close to level, and that was achieved with back trim
In the past on models suffering from turbine thrust I have tilted the mainshaft back, just a few degrees, this has helped but too many degrees it looks silly
I have looked at the mechanics, and if you tilt the main shaft back you mess the tubine gear drive set up
Not wishing for this to turn into an argument, just interested in what you have done to get it right

Rob,

On mine no angle main shaft. Are you using the 3 blade system as she will be more heavy? I did add some weight on the nose for mine so if you pick the heli from the main shaft it should be a little bit nose heavy. Also my exhaust system has a few shims to point upward but nothing too much. I don't use the trims as my helo flies via the Hellicommand Extreme.... so all tims need to be at zero. Check the video as follow and your Lama should fly like mine.

Watch at YouTube

Gonzalo, mine hovers, very close to yours, in the hover
It must be the trims in the exhaust that make the difference
Mine has the same vario head and blades as yours, but no stabilisation, bit of a pig on a breezy day
Thanks for the video, always good to see a well shot video
The art of seeing a good flight is in the hands of the pilot, the best set up helicopter in the world will not fly without one
Thanks for posting
