What a gorgeous backdrop for a flying video! Guess my flights at the local field will be the equivalent of watching paint dry lol. What you can do with Big $$ and an exotic location.

Ok boys. Sorry this build is dragging on, that thing called life gets in the way. With my Lil Hailey and crazy 50hr work weeks not much time for building. Plus this is my prime demo/funfly season.

So any who, after doing a weekend of demos with my big AS350 Super Scale it resparked my drive! Got in about an hours worth on it today after I got home from the funfly.

My Lil Hailey

Mechanics are in, wires are soldered, head/tail installed
Next is linkages and set up pitch

Maiden Success!!!

I know it's been a Long time coming. I've been busy with multiple Goblin builds and enjoying life with our new daughter... I know excuses excuses. Sorry! I hope this makes up for it. Still need to tweak the iKON and throttle curves but extremely happy with the first flight! I usually fly a flat throttle curve so RPM doesn't change but forget to set it up when I switched to the Futaba 8fg. I'm flying a standard 0-100 linear throttle curve and you can tell he Heli would prefer a flat governed HS instead. It was a long flight about 7+ min so I cut it down for the video.

Watch at YouTube

She is one Big beauty

Kind of glad we got one last snow storm. It would be an injustice if I wasn't able to get a video and pics of the Air Zermatt themed Heli flying in the Snow!

Hi Chris,
thanks for the info and advice on this heli.

I think Angie feels bad because I was supposed to retire this year and buy a Corvette on my birthday, but alas it won't happen. I will stay working for another three years and she and I will retire at the same time. So... she agreed to buy me the 429 in AirMed colors AND a quad for aerial photograhy.

Actually I kinda ganged up on her with advice from you, Emile (Copterdoctor), Mike (Jestrr) and Rich (206 pilot) on what she should buy me.
I'm stoked and looking forward to this thing arriving.
Your build threads are awesome and I will be using them for reference during my build

thanks for the pics brokenlink!

When I get mine I can use pics like these for detail reference.

It seems this is a very popular color scheme for the 700 size 429.

Been a while with reviews and customer builds but finally back to my 429. Here is a morning flight to test my new throttle curves and tail gain settings. Much better than the maiden flight. Just about perfect!
