Verti>>> Heat sinc idea
Verti... Check out this link...

You could try and make your own heat sinc! Then it would be just the size you want...I made one on my ECO8 and it works fine...CHEAP too

You just have to measure the accessable part of the motor for sizing when you make it...Light as a feather ...less than that even...
Check this link.... Make your own!

I'd make the fins a bit longer than in the pic but you can experiment with it....

Thanks for the link, I like the do it yourself heat sink. I will use it in the future when the need arises. I think I fixed my gws heat sink. I drilled three 5/16" holes in it. I put the sink in the vise and used the drill press to make the three holes. I put one on top and the other two on each side. I think it took about 25% off the weight. The cg balance seems good now.

ok i ordered the DD tail mod from rcheli and i just wanted to know what i will need in the way of other parts to install it so that it will last. i mean things like diodes or stuff like that, i see some people are using them and some aren't. i just don;t want to install it and have it burn up right away. i would rather have the parts to fix it or to make it last before i install it. where would i get these diodes and what size and make do i need? or should i just install the DD mod and see what happens?

From what I understand you do not need the diods if you get the
GWS CN12-RXC Motor Set Tail Drive(tower hobbies). This is the dragon fly tail motor, it is a edp 50/h. As long as the motor says h on the end it should be ok and comes with its own 104 micro farad capacitor installed. Here are the other parts from Tower Hobbies I ordered:

EP3020 Tail Rotor Blade EDP-50/H
GWS Heat Sink for CN12 Motor
GWS Tail Rotor Housing & Vertical Fin

I ended up not using the tail rotor housing because you have to reverse the polarity. See previous post in this tread. I used the stock Blade CP gear box so I did not have to reverse the motor. See same previous post on how to convert the original gear box to dd.

see helipilot64 post on 09-29-2005 11:37 AM page 4, this thread.

tail mod in works
i will be mounting the DD tail mod this weekend. FF was ok with the stock tail but looking forward to better directional control.
Has anyone compared the HB CP2 Bell/Hiller parts cost to the new EFlite upgrade being offered? I will try to do that this weekend unless someone has beat me to it.

Bsoder,
Yea I just converted the stock housing to fit the DD tail & actually this weekend I took it off and tried to use the fin mount and I had to turn the proportional all the way up and it still wasnt holding. Didnt care for it at all so I just switched back to my mod DD tail.

the amount of time you fly is directly proportional to the amount of parts you buy.
