Greetings all,

My little project on destroying 2 RC Helicopters is progressing. I have got my self to the home stretch. I have 1 fully assembled machine and the other is shy a just a few things.

What is still needed:
3 servos with mounting hardware (Or 2 servos with hardware and 1 set of JR Mounting hardware.)
1 30 size engine

Here are the machines that are going to meet each other in a midair collision.

I had several members offer up engines and I gladly accepted however none have arived yet. If anyone has a good running 30 on there shelf I might be able to sweeten things by offering a few bucks. I would like to avoid that as this is a project for all RC Helicopter pilots to enjoy and I would like to avoid spending anymore money beyond what I have already invested. Yes, I am begging


More info can be seen here:

LOL, Yep they are doomed!

If all goes well I'll send them into each other in late March. I plan on getting 8 or so video cameras to catch the event. Then it's all about the editing.

Ken, just don't understand why you would be obsessed in crashing 2 perfectly nice helis.. could have donated to those poor souls who are trying to get into the hobby let them have a crack at it. (Pun intended )

If you really like to see mid air crashes videos.. there are a couple of them .

Chris, Yes I got the servos. They are installed in both machines.

Thanks!

Naomi, I have to agree with you to some extent. This is more of a short film project than anything. I always wanted to capture the distruction of my own machines on film. Well now I can do that. Oh, if you saw the machines up close you would understand that they arn't perfectly good.

Naomi,
I looked at those videos, They are some really bad video quality. My goal is to have a high quality video so that when people download it they can see the whole thing clearly. Going to do multiple angles and all that jazz. I know it all sounds strange to you and others. But this has been my winter project and stress reliever. So it's good therapy, at least that’s what my doctor says. (J/K)

This will the RC Community's equivalent of a snuff film.

Ken, An Rx will be on it's way to you tomorrow.

Now, let's talk about background music for the film.

Opening: Ride of the Valkyries (Wagner)
Walk-out-to-the-debris field: Funeral March of a Marionette

Any others??

Music for the Video has been something that I was trying to figure out too. I need something that is 2 1/2 - 3 minutes long slow in the beginning and climax's near the end with a simple fade at the end.

donation for the cause
I have a TT36 with the stock R30 muffler from my R30 if you are interested. It ran great for several gallons, then developed a leaning out problem. After getting sick of messing with it insted of flying, I replaced it with an OS32. I was going to send it back to Ace for warranty repair, but this seems like a better idea. All I ask in return is for an actual copy of the crash (not just a download). Send me some shipping info and I will get it off to you. Good luck!
