Kavan JetRanger
Sorry to enter this thread late - but only just returned to Kavan flying.(I was a semi-professional Kavan model JetRanger pilot for a British business using a white JetRanger as their TV logo)
All of the observations in the thread are all basically correct. That diving right turn was the price we paid for the first collective kit that got us all hooked on RC helis! On the back of the manual Kavan listed country contacts of early, experienced Kavan pilots who, once contacted, updated you on pending issues and modifications. I did this in the UK with Aubrey Sharman and we spread the word from there.
Flying in the public eye every week I needed reliability for safety and low down-time for maintenance. (Webra Speed 61 + Futaba + Royle Electronics governor) Never a tail gyro!!
I am building the last but one of my JetRanger kits from that era - I will use homebuilt flat-bottomed 'Expert' blades as the kit was minus blades.(Cheap and easy) All modifications. New (eBAY) NIB Webra Speed 61. Curtis Youngblood governor. Slightly larger radius tail blades like the full-size Bell III. Mechanics 'stood-off' from the main transmissioin plate a-la-Lockheed 286L. Flybar.
Just flown my 1/7 Westland Scout with original Kavan mechanics and Lockheed 40 degree high tail gearbox. Risked an original drive belt which withstood years of storage and it held...okay, it would be silly not to change it when the new one arrives from American RCHeli!!
Speaks volumes for the inbuilt quality of Old Franz's finest hour.
Being recently (air)Born Again, my memory has worked overtime to get the Scout operational. Email me on salmonhermes AT aol.com if you need any insights...and if I can remember them!! Chris
