Wa,

Got the inter sponson pieces bonded to the fuse.

The plug finish is pretty good but there are some places that need some filler before high build primer. Hope to work on that over the weekend.

A few pics,

Move the epoxy can I can't see the girl in the calendar.

Oh and the helicopter looks good. Keep an eye on the draft angles so it will pull from the mold without too many issues.

Hows this Gary,


2017 Dillon Precision Calendar

Did a little lay out last night just to refresh my little mind. I plan to run 12S and can fit up to 4 6000 mah packs. That a lot of battery's and may not need that much but good to have the room.

The mechanics will sit pretty low in the fuse to keep the tail drive shaft angle under 3* to the IGB.

After getting a few days messing with this thing, I am ready to get back on track.

Looking good Butch, glad to see you back working in the shop. I like the layout with the batteries down low and forward. having scale drawings like that is really nice.

Looks like its going to be really tight back there in the tail!

HA,

The Lizard.

It was found in the floor joist when moving from the old house. When unpacking stuff, I ran across it and threw him on my bench. He has been keeping an eye on me. LOL

It will be a tight fit for the IGB. The IGB will be pretty far forward which will help for room but it will all fit.

The assembly that actuates the stab has to fit in that area too. I have that figured out in theory but will have to wait for a fuse to see if it will all fit.

Butch,

On my cobra the battery CG is 300mm from the main shaft and I still had to add lead weight, this was without the cockpit installed. With the cockpit installed I can remove the lead. The 4 bladed tail rotor is 1200mm from the main shaft, this should give some idea where your batteries need to end up. Your results may vary depending on how heavy your tail is constructed.

Thanks for the info Gary,

I took some quick measurements this morning. If I run 2 batteries, the CG of the bats will be around 350mm forward the main shaft. If I run 4 bats that will move aft. The TGB will be around 1100mm aft of the main shaft.

The landing gear will add some weight forward of the the main rotor that will help.

My Comanche is 25 lbs ready to fly. It is a lot smaller then the 67. Its like a brick with a rotor but fly's real nice.

I am hopeful the S-67 ready to fly will be under 22 lbs

As long as all weight is part of the useful load I will be happy.

UIH,

Got some schit done the past couple days. Have the first coat of high build primer down and sanded on some of the parts. Next in the main fuse.

If this thing works, it's going to be BAD AZZ...

Thanks guys,

The fuse is 75 inches long but only 5 inches wide. When finished it will stand around 20" and have a wing span of 37" so yes, its a pretty big model. It will use the sane Vario 2 bolt head and I use on Comanche and Blowhole but turn 875 blades. I am hoping to run a head speed of around 900 or so but we will see.

I am sure Ro will be ready for dessert in Dalton. we are really looking forward to getting back into the game,

Waaaa,

Working final fitment of cowls. Once all this is complete, will lay down a couple coats of high build primer for fuse detail.
