Just thought I would post this link to the main discussion as it is an area of rc helicopters that is dear to my heart. Good old fashioned classic helicopters.

I figure many of us remaining in this hobby would be interested in classic mechanically mixed, flbarred and nitro powered helicopters.

Cheers!

I have done a little flybarless and am converting a Raptor to electric but my fleet and my interest remains with nitro powered flybarred helis.
I still use NiMh for almost all of my flight packs.

Great to hear MartyH. It was only when I bought my second Ergo 30 (17 years after my first) that I realised that a mechanically mixed, flybared internal combustion helicopter is all I need to keep me interested and entertained. I'm not a 3d'er so my requirements are not for all out performance, more just reliability and fun.

I had an Ergo 60 back in the day. It was the worst heli I ever owned.
The design of the swashplate drive was bad. It always exhibited bad coupling between the loopavators and the rollarons. Even mixing by some well known experts failed to solve the problems. I finally tossed it.
