That is one way to get a model AV-8B to hover.

Ok is that real or is it an artifact of perspective? That is, is there another heli just behind it? I don't see a tail rotor. Would, or who would seriously spend the time and money involved to build a scale mutation like that anyways?

giheli: it almost looks that way, but check the rotor, the right blade is in front f the rear vertical tail fin, and by about the same amount as the left blade is off from being above the nose. Those rotors are centered above the plane. Note also the gear... it doesn't have rear wheels, it's got a pair of struts in back. (plus a set of small wheels on the bottom of the wings) Not sure about the tail rotor though, maybe it's on the far side, out of view?

Anyone remember the late '80's or early 90's futalba ads that said their radios could fly anything? Looks like someone decided to build one.

That blue model behind the Harrier is a rendition of a Sikorsky S-51 (aka R-5), which was the second production helicopter accepted for military use- the first being the Sikorsky R-4.

Somebody put a lot of effort into that model. Of course, it may be a commonly-available kit in Japan. There is all sorts of heli goodies available there that we will never see, because Horizon, AlTech, and The Empire don't think there is enough profit in it.

Damn, I tried the IMG thing. Didn't work, why?

I'm not sure if it has a tail rotor! If not, it would be a bitch to fly. Maybe it's heavy which will help counter the torque.

I dunno, looks like it might have a pusher prop at the back. Would that help counter the torque?

The only other one that I can remember seeing was the "Piggy Bank" but I don't have a picture of it.

coleopter, dupe.

revisiting one of my earlier posts on 12/3 - already covered under "harrier heli or ufo oddities" with not much interest.. but heres my post anyway with additions - thanks ..

http://www.runryder.com/showtopic.h...13&topicid=1319

as for the bug - not sure how many of you go back that far but the first one that I remember seeing was a waspland dragonfly done in europe , but was completely enclosed, was the cover on one of traplets r/c helicopter mags ages ago. takes aot of building skill to create one. those bugs are cool.

here is where the concept originated from - a bell 47 .
article is in radio control helicopters - spring 1986 issue(predates most here) , I still have the mags , it's a nice one.. enjoy

unfortunately the author crashed it in two pieces as documented in the article and had it rebuilt . the above yellowjacket picture bee is the nicest i've seen since those days .. my congratulations to the builder..






as you all can see theres more to the hobby than 3d flying. how about a 3d flying bugfest .. the outer limits of r/c heli's .. hehe
