Wow that is expensive for just a frame, hopefully you can use it to convert to belt dive later.

Here is a sneak peek at the BCP Ecureuil I have been working on before clearcoat, vinyl graphics and tinted windows. Looking like a chopper now!

Hi, Gino! There are no compound curves to these windows (including the front) so flat material will work for all of them.

Fuse is 2 oz exactly right now. Trim and windows will only add a couple of grams. It is turning out about a half an ounce over my target build weight but I think that's still an acceptable payload for the BCP to handle.

Throw in a Brushless motor and you'll be ok. I have an apache body thats pretty heavy for stock setup well at least the prototype is/was but the final production Apache is going to be lighter. The prototype with stock motor/partial Superskids, Plywood landing gear plate/fixed wheeled landing gear and 100g battery pack It wouldnt get out of ground effect. I bolted in a brushless/Gyro and it was a rocket. Plenty of power. So, if you find the Astar to heavy, you can always go brushless. I went seperates but you can tap the 4-1 for brushless operation.

Got that covered, Darth. Using the HD brushless set-up and have already flown it with fuse on prior to painting. Flys fine! I slaved the unused 4in1 channel for the brushless ESC.

The thing looked like a big pickle before the trim. These graphics helped though. Just need to install windows and a few little scale widgets and I will get a short flying video. Put a green (go figure) strobe on nacelle behind rotor.Looks great but added 5 more grams. Looking now like AUW of this fuse will be about 2 oz+8 grams.

That's cool! Where is the blower mounted in the tube and what are you using for the fan and motor? That opens up some real possibilities! Hmmmmmmm?

My new Stuff:

Super Skids or landing gear.
Palsti Blades
Heli Direct Mainshaft and Gear
New 3-1 controller
Metalic tube as my Tail boom
New 10 pinion gear

It flys better than ever, had a test flight this afternoon and it was so smooth and steady bcoz if the added weight..Pictures coming soon..!!
