skyfox converted to 23cc gasser
Hi guys
Here's my last heli :

click on the link to see the whole gallery !
http://www.hiboox.fr/go/albums/dive...8e1a18ee97ba8ec

I saw and trimmed the flanges manually, and modified the first reduction stage with a belt a pulley and a bulley clutch originally used on Vario's benzins
The second heli you can see is a fury also converted for a friend. Both use g230rc engines. The first flight looks chaotic, actually it was, a servo was damaged, I had to fix the pitch and change only the rotational speed, which was not easy as the clutch didn't totally engage at such a low speed with such a torque (pitch was fixed rather high).
Tell me what you think about it !
Greatings from France

(videos are being published, coming tomorrow)

I will post another video as soon as I will have flown it once the servo is repaired, it should be much better with the collective pitch, the heli will not bounce next time ^^
bye

Nice work, I think you need a bigger Heli pad though It was a bit scary watching you nearly fly into the wall.

You don't need that header tank.. Just use a good clunk in the main tank..

What belt, and secondary gear did you use?
