Airstar Internatinal 3D PRO

Thanks for all the input concerning weight. Since we are admittedly new to the 3D Arena it definitely helps to have some kind of benchmark to shoot for. So far we are still working with our first 5 production prototypes (which includes using about 80% of the same parts from the Mongoose). We honestly have not even gotten into purposefully shaving off weight yet as we wanted to be sure we had a good proof of concept. Shaving off about 3 pounds from the Mongoose isn't a bad start! We are looking forward to see where the final weight comes in after we put her on a little diet

I saw a friends Mongoose fly ,,a very nice bird but he didn't do any 3d of any kind. Saw a 3d video of a Airstar and liked it .
With all do respect to Airstar in this discussion ,,where the hell is Bergen as they make a very good gasser too??? Let's see the Bergen in action...

Setup is everything, All my heli's can fly far better than I can pilot them

this is the best one I could find......no tic tocs, funnels, no inverted (well one small tiny bit)...some rolls....and "Magnum PI" music

Airstar 3D PRO

We are just about finished with our endurance testing and having some serious 3d pilots put the 3D PRO through some hard flying. Once that is completed we will start putting out the videos and information you all are so anxious to see. In the mean time here is what our regular Mongoose will do in the hands of someone just learning to fly 3D. Another thing to remember is this machine is over 3.0 lbs heavier and not the same CG setup as the 3D Pro

Enjoy.

I hope the 3D Pro minus the 3lbs will be better. The only thing in that flight routine that would load the head up was the 1.5 tick tocks in a row and it started to bog. Long way to go for "3d" flight imop. I look forward to the 3D Pro vids.

well keep in mind that its swinging 800mm blades...not going to get 2100 HS out of that...not 100% safely anyway...

weight is what kills the pop in any gasser.

but high prices kills it for everybody even more so.

That is what is so impressive to me ,,the blade size 800mm on a gasser. I have never seen a gasser perform like that with a standard or modified powerplant using 800mm blades. But maybe my Spectra with my Hanson 29cc engine with 800mm blades and same ratio would do the same ,,I don't know.

does Airstar have any intention of making a 700 class 3D gasser?

I do not know but I will say in my opinion a Bergen which is very similar to my Min Air 1005 would in the right hands be right up there in performance with the same engine. I wish Bergen would show us as this would be a very good opportunity to show his stuff as Airstar has ....Bergen should not be underestimated

My Opinion ONLY!!!!!!!!!!!

Bergen's for me!

I love my BERGEN helicopters, I have 3 gassers, one of them is going into a scale Bell 206B fuse. They've used the same reliable frame design for years now, it's tried & true. Just like the full scales. In aviation we use the term "Time Tested" which is what these are. AND you'll never get better service anywhere.

HELIBUG -- All the way- ! check out this video

Watch at YouTube

This was a couple years ago on a completely stock zenoah motor in the summer and at altitude. Helibug 800 gearing.

I dont want to talk too much about something already obvious.

Testimonial: My gasser crashed bad. Tailboom, head, blades, skids. Helibug Frame survived perfect to my surprise as it was a nasty crash.

I tried the following and all are junk for one reason or another:
stay far away from:
Bergen---a Burden! complete waste of money. Here's a video:

Watch at YouTube

Hold your breath ! Thank God it didnt crash !

Predator gasser:Better than Burden, but still a waste of money. Century begged me to keep the video private. "F" it.
Broken Blade grip in flight:

Watch at YouTube

Thousands and thousands spent and disappointments had !

if im not blade bogging youll find me pack puffing

I hear ya Kogibankole,

Had a friend yesterday with his new Century Radikal (FBL) on its 2nd flight, was coming down the runway level flight and it went unstable/ uncontrollable and went in totaled with nothing left.

Another friend had his Century Gas muffler baffle break inside and rattle. (300 buck UAV Commercial) Century told him the warranty was void because he put it on a gasoline engine!

so for the unstable/uncontrollable........was any root cause found? sounds like a radio/fbl controller problem, not a model problem

what radio/fbl system?

If you're not flying a gasoline helicopter
You're paying 10 times too much for fuel!!

Airstar 3D PRO

Welcome back from the weekend hope you all had some great flying.

As far as the Mongoose Video those are 830mm main blades and 120mm tail blades on a cheap CY engine, not a Zenoah. The purpose for me showing that video was to inform others that a regular mongoose is fully capable of some 3D maneuvers. Also we have a 700 size prototype in development.
