Hi all,

We all do comprehend the 120 degree arms are for the CCPM system but according to PROTECH, this configuration is no longer in use or further developed. Should it be removed to save weight?

Any one has any ideas?

A 120 degree configuration isn't that easy to do on a zoom.

The zoom has a fixed swashplate, it doesn't move up and down. This has an advantage of giving a very precise cyclic control.

If you were to setup a ccpm configuration, you would have to tell it to do it only for cyclic mixing, and not for collective pitch. Then you would need to tell the radio to use a traditional pitch servo. I don't think you could easily program a radio to do this. Maybe with different mixing functions you could coax a 9z to do it, but it wouldn't be easy.

If anyone does a ccpm "upgrade", they would most likely change the servo linkage, and the washout linkage to work with a floating swashplate.

The zoom design is excellent, I don't think ccpm would be any better. It is dissapointing that this hobby has so many "fads" when it comes to upgrades. It is like the golfer that thinks if he buys the latest composite driver shaft, he will be a better golfer! When in reality, Tiger Woods could take his existing equipment and play better than he can ever imagine! He just needs to practice!

When your model is flying through the air 50 feet up, the stock zoom looks about the same as the zoom with all of the flashy upgrades!

Swashplate
Andy

i cant wait to get this item
it should be a winner.

MH parts are very good, and made from best material.
We have experience from other "Manufacturer " of Zoom parts, and you cant compare the quality, some of parts are getting corrosion, some have very bad finish by anodising, you can see its home made.

Microheli is the best.

i hope to see more parts from you Andy, since we all like your quality and delivery time.

Hi Andy,

I know I will not be using the 120 ccpm mixing ever! I think the heli just flies too well with the standard swash setup. I would like to the swash plate be as light as possible, no need to pork her out.

I am also waiting patiently for all the other goodies you guys are going to be releasing soon. Microheli's parts are of the highest possible quality and it shows in how precise every part moves. No slop here brother!

Hey Andy what do you guys think about doing a carbon alum. frame man?

Gotta fly,
Kev

Hi Kevin,

Thank you for your comments. We are glad you like our products. At this moment we are focusing on some of our key strategic products but CF frame is not too far away from our reach. Need time... We need to obtain at least 5 key superior advantages of the new design to be able to release the product. It is not just designing for the look of CF.

We got many inputs from many of our customers and dealers and we all take those inputs seriously to make sure those wishes come true.

Suggestions for new products are mostly appreciated and wecomed!

Best regards,

Andy Le
