Hey guys!

Does anyone know of a Bell 222 fuse with retracts for the Hummingbird? And if so, any feedback?

Thanks,
Daniel

Jack Dunkle / JMD Models has the slickest set-up for both the fuse and retracts. I have a pair of both. The Airwolf he sells can be painted like Bell 222. It's a world better than the Ikarus foamie 222/AirWoof kits. I like his retracts so much that I am reconfiguring them to pull up the mains and tail wheel on the darthdrk Beta RAH-66 Comanche that I am currently building.

portsix,

For people that don't know how to paint (ME), the Century fuses can't be beat. I will have my Airwolf in time for Christmas. The JMD retracts will work and are sold seperately. In addition, there is a very good possibility that Century will be offering a retract kit as an add on if there is enough interest. I know there is

Anyone know of a Huey lexan body for the HB? The one's at helihobby are foam.

The maximum effective range of an excuse is zero meters

One little hicup in using the JMD stuff on an HB airwolf.

The lowers that come with the wolf are not as long as the stock picolo or HB.

This and the fact that the rear main frame on the HB airwolf is different make the install work a little different.

It can be done, just expect to differ from the instructions.

Exactly...plus it needs to be painted...all too much work for me. I am not good at that stuff. The pics of the Century Airwolf look great. Can't wait to get mine!

chopperscott ,
Keep an eye on Darths website. If you ask him he just might make the mold and pop one out. I know thare are a few people that would like to have non foam Huey. He has one but it is not for the HB.

His are not Lexan, they are made from high impact Vac formed polystyrene and his prices are very reasonable. He is making a Comanche that should soon be available

I was talking about the HB airwolf.

New it looks good. I just wanted retracts on it.

LHS had a retract kit. I installed it and upgraded to the lithium cells.

I had to cut a lot of the bottom of the fuse and the battery pack sticks out lower than the fuse.

I guess I could make some drawings of missles and hide the battery with them.

Thanks. I understand now what you meant.

I guess I will just have to wait until I get mine to see what I am up against. I have to wait until next month to order the servos, gyro and receiver but I have everything else. What are you using?

I got the RTF HB wolf.

I am using a hornet RX.

The servos that came with it glitched real bad. They were swapped for hitecs at the LHS.

I am running the stock gyro.

If you run the lithium pack make sure you get the heat sinks.
