G'day every one the names Steve,I'm writing from down under, Just thought this might be of some interest to you. I had the 160 sitting on the bench from an air plane and wondered how it would go in a heli . The trex clutch go's on without much modding. I'm planing to put the trex mech's into an align hughes 500 with a four bladed rotor head. I'm going to get a mate to machine the rotor head for me . I've never flown a mutibladed head yet so it should be interesting. I dear say I'll be coming to you blokes for help.

Get that baby flying with a 2 blade head first. The motor doesn't make a lot of power and revs pretty low so you may find yourself running out of headspeed if you cant re gear it. It does make some torque and it also sounds great idling on the ground, just like a Harley

Early models of the 500 had four blade heads.

OK fallas i have a question about the four bladed rotor hub I'm designing it with rubber dampers just like a normal too blader, just wanting to know if that would be the way to do it?. I'm going with the four blader because i think it would be easier to make. as for my other idea of putting the 160 in the trex I'll just try it and see wot happens.

I have a mate with a earth moving business and he owns a 500D and I'm pretty Shir it has four blades I've been up in it acouple times. an awesome experience.

Do you have any video to see your trex 600 with a OS 160 twin flying?

Briteshine, I have been designing and building multi-bladed heads since the mid 80's and I would advise to go rigid. Much simpler to build and don't have to worry about inconsistent dampening.

The blades will supply enough dampening on their own.

i agree, with the blade technology today rigid is the better way to go( note all the manufacturers seem to be taking this route) if dampening is your preference, then spring steel is the way to go. much more consistent than rubber dampers.

You need to build a Bell 47 or Robinson R22 for that setup... 2 blade head, low rotor speed, and the 4 stroke sound would be about right for scale!

First test it as simply as you can , years ago I put that four stroke in the Robbe mechanics , two flights later as I landed it snapped the main shaft right off , at idle I think it reversed itself.

Thanks for every one's reply's it's been quite a wile sence that stupide idea of putting the 160 in the trex600 the engine didnt like to run sitting on it's back so just put the screaming 50 back in as for the 4 blader i was working on i just ended up buying one from rcaurodine witch wasn't as hard to fly as i thought just pitchy my biggest problem with the trex600n in the 500 is getting diffrent gearing for running a slower head speed, any way i have a trex600e know and have the 800size uh1 from rcaurodine orderd for it i can't wait.

quick and probably stupid question. How did you flip the configuration of the jugs?? On a plank does that motor really exhaust that close to the prop??? Just curious. Too bad it didn't work. When I swapped out 2 strokes to YS 120 4 strokes in my planks, I never looked back. The sound was just too cool.
