Hey Totto

Your Vario 412 is looking good, My name is Craig Anderson from New Zealand And I to am building a Vario 412. I'm not in that much of a rush with mine. I bought mine 3 years ago from Vario in Germany and have only just started it, mine is Skyfox mechanics with Rossi power plus 4 blade head. I see you have some custom exhaust pipes, how did you do these? hey key the pics coming, they all look great and give me insiration to get mine unway.

Regards

Craig Anderson.

Hello Craig !

Thank you ! On this fuse the other owner has done quite much already and done a good job on it. Regarding the custom exhaust pipes it seems that he has done it from a very thin (light) steelplate which then is shaped. I am not sure but looks like something like that. He has done a very nice job with those. Ok so you are also building a 412 as well. Then we can inspire each other then. Yes ill post pics on my site as the building process goes on. This will be a “winterproject” and there will be no building (probably) for a while I think. The summer is here up north and the weather is so good for the time being so we enjoy that very much. In sept/oct I probably start doing something. Good luck further with your project ! See you later :-)

Hello Irogers !

How are you and thanks for those kind words ! Any projects ongoing ? Well the fuse is really nice and I’m looking forward to get it airborne but that will take some time. Ref my previous post.

Best regards

Actually, the only projects I've had going are house/yard related. That time of year! I did finish a small project for the helos night before last, a simple securing system that lets me strap the Evo and Freya to the top of my flight box (wheeled tool box) for transport to/from the flight line.
Pretty much determined the Century H500D fuselage for the Evo will be the first scale under taking and that won't be until spring next year. That will give me plenty of time to hone my piloting skills. After that, the Freya is going to end up as either a Sea King (top runner), Huey or Blackhawk.
All project are going to halt next week for a while due to shoulder surgury. Tuff enough to fly with two arms, no way I'm going to try with one!

Ok, house/yard takes its time for sure Good system bringing your helis around. A H500D is a nice choice and yes take your time with training. The better you get as a pod&boom pilot the more secure you will be when flying scale ships. (A good way of training is to fly very very slowly in all directions.) Good luck with your projects and with your shoulder !
Best regards

Your 412 is coming along nicely. I'm looking forward to seeing a vid clip of the first test flight.
On a differnet subject, where did you get the pilots for your Sea King, are they from Vario? Any closer to a multi-blade for it?
