DJ just be careful on blade size just because its a 700 size fuse dosnt meanu use 700 mm blades Mark can tell u he found out the hard way that the load and torque of 4 700mm blades was way to much for the tail blades to hold the tail. Try to stay around 660/680 @ the most. But u will need to go larger on ur tail blades to handle the load. I use 115mm tail blades

Barry,
Thanks Mike contacted me and we got things squared away. Thanks for the help. Ed I'll post my progression on the other thread, seems like that's where all the 407 action is so I'll be sure to get over there.
Thanks Dj

Rich,
I did order the v2, primed and unpainted. I think I read somewhere that the tail boom is short. Any info on this ?

Hi DJ , I never heard the boom being short so far I believe all of us who have built it didn't have an issue with the tail being short but u will have to cut your tail boom on your mechanics for proper length I believe u cut 30mm off the boom but double check with Edward on that measurement ...

Yeah, I was gonna ask about that, I realize I'll have cut the 700 boom down but which end do I cut, the fuse end or the tail end or does it matter? Also are there any modifications to the align tail rotor system other then flipping the tail rotor? Got a set of skids coming from Mike, so thanks for the help on that guys.
Thanks DJ

Mike made my skids also I made my own floats and float bottle, as of the tail boom? You cut the back end were the tr goes on not were it mounts in the frames, as of the tail slider plate I would have to see wat type of tr casing u have, it's very easy to do u have all the Tr parts does your tr have like one 3 mm screw that just tightens down on the boom or do u have 2 screws top and bottom and a hole in the center of the tail rotor case?

Rich,
I haven't ordered my tr yet, I was gonna build the frames first then get the tail rotor, I.like and will most probably get the same tail rotor assembly as what's found on the trex 700 denominator which has the two screws in the housing, unless someone suggested something better.

the only issues I ever saw with the boom of the V1 fuselage is the area for the t/r to exit was not far back enough, and on the wrong side. It looked odd. I opted to make a longer tube drive for my mechs (century predator) and mount the t/r on the correct side as per the fullsize machine.

drive a rotary, fly a rotorcraft
