Thanks Doc, but that is James' prototye bird. Mine are all still in the shaping stage, except my big 1/7th IndyHelis Apache. Cheers - Boyd

Well, my e-cobra coming to an end. I built most of the parts already, still some covering and wings are left to do. I broke the tail while gluing it, and I broke the canopy while gluing it as well :-) Really not used to working with balsa, it's so brittle. Well I glued it all together anyway, with an excellent G-1 epoxy and I hope to get at least 1 flight from this fuse :-) Not a huge aspiration :-).

Hey why is the tail rotor on the left side on apache and does it still have the belt drive?

Just curious.

Cheers,

Dan

It's on the left side because the full scale Apache has it there. The full scale Apache has it there because the main rotor moves in a CCW direction when viewed from above and the T/R has more authority when mounted on the left side of CCW main rotor helicopters.

The Swift/Logo 10 Apache has a belt driven tail just the same as the Swift/Logo 10 Cobra.

The .30 -.46 size Apache has a flex cable driven T/R which is compatible with the Century Hawk mechanics it was designed for.

hmm, from past experiences the ergo can be a bit fuselage "unfriendly" but the apache has plenty of room as i have seen someone here put an xcell 60 in one. as for the belt drive, approach has a clever unit that adapts the belt driven system to the flex drive. i believe it was designed for the raptor so some mods may be required for the ergo.
as for my apache, i am in the priming stage and making up all the little detail stuff. the mechs have been flying well and the mods to fit the "FCR" on top are completed, just got to make the fcr now. will post pics soon.

Looks like my e-cobra will never fly. The belt is too short 4-5-6 cm too short. And I glued it all together. Never thought this could happen.

cool! you are gonna love building this kit. i have actually gotten the mechs flown in the fuse today but camera issues prevented pictures. i will remedy that asap. it was flown without much of the top cowlings nd the lot in place. just want to make sure the instalation is sound and also to see what bugs have to be worked out. so far so good. maybe get time to fly again tomorow. the building board overflows with projects for others. not enough time in the day to get them all done.drive a rotary, fly a rotorcraft

thanks,
it features a cannon that not only moves left and right, but has the simulated flashes when it fires (doesnt really fire anything tho) the tads also moves left and right with the cannon and if i can find any pilots the right look and size, i may be able to make their heads move too.
