Hi everyone im back with some more pictures i hope you enjoy them.
Even though i own a turbine. I did not want to place it into my G Jive. Im not certain why i decided this, but i rather have it gasoline, driven for now besides 3 HP will be more then enough power to turn a five blade rotor head. I decided to start work on my rear exhust i got a little creative, and wanted it to look like a turbine. So i tried something out and this is what i created.

I made some turbine blades from scratch. I am using brass pipe, to be use to mount the turbine blades, on to. At the same time the pipe, will serv as the escape for the exhust from the gas engine. It will do two things at once look good but also serv as a exhust port.

Greetings Matt,
Good hearing from you! I hope family, is well and yourself. yes that will be a exciting day when i do. I will make a youtube video of it and post it. I would say what is left is a little more detail to the cockpit, fitting of the doors, placing the hinges were they need to go. Preperation of the body for rivet, work and then a two step paint job with black high light shadowing and clear coat. plus another adventure Then work on the mechanics, to get a 5 blade rotor head together.

Jim

If anyone has not seen it i will tell you just check out my video, of the full size G Jive, at the 11 second mark you will see an electrical static lighting bolt discharge from the rotor head to the skid very shocking to see! have it in HQ or you may not be able to see it

Hi everyone,
here are some hinges i will be using on my G Jive. One hinge is made of white plastic, the other is made of aluminum which is seen in the photos . I dont think the plastic, will stand up over time as well. These are made of CNC aircraft aluminum I think they are more durable so im using them on my bird.

Any one interested in these let me know.

Hi everyone,
I am still prepping the body for painting i guess I'm very picky i want to make sure there is no imperfections in the body that the eye can't catch before i paint.

cheers
