Yeah!

I get mine Monday and plan on frying it by the weekend. Then it is off to a fun fry event. Anybody need an extra frybar? I won't be needing mine. This will be my night frying ship as well, and the first night frying frybarless experience. Like I said before: it should be a good summer 2009.

The Mikado Vbar 4.0 with Mikado head conversion (plastic grips). I am told I should be able to directly transfer it all from the Trex600. But the first day of flying I'll use a flybar.

I am going to swap over the flybarless setup from my T600. I did hear that AHF was going to have a flybarless head for it soon.

Cool thing is it can fit on other helis with no mods. The Raptor, Rex, Vision all use the exact same main shaft and jesus bolt configuration.

Completed Aeolus 50 3D
Hi everyone

I got my Aeolus at the beginning of April and completed the build a couple of weeks ago. I must say first off that building this heli was a great experience. This was my first kit heli built and at that a nitro heli. The best part of putting this heli together was the first lift off. The hardest part of the build was getting all the electronic components together. I had changed my mind a couple of times for serveral of the components after reading some reviews, comments on the various forums, and talking with vendors about their electronics. Anyway here is what I have:

CF/TT model
Transmitter: Spektrum DX7
Receiver: Spektrum AR9000
Receiver Battery: Rhino 2S 1750 mAh 20C
Cyclic Servos: Hyperion DS20xSMD
Throttle and Rudder Servos: Hyperion DS20-GMD
Gyro: Spartan DS760
Engine: OS50 Hyper
Muffler: Mavrikk Hi Volume
Fuel: Cool Power 30%
Governor: MultiGov Pro
Voltage Regulator: Align 2-in-1

I will be posting photos of the completed heli once I read the FAQ on how to add photos to a post.

Have fun and be safe
EJB

Congratulations!
Aloha Sam B

Yes, another sibling is born.

Oh boy, you did not waste any time at all. A little over 3 minutes for the whole build . Just kidding . I am confident that you will enjoy flying your Aeolus as much as you seemed to enjoy building it.

Sam!

3:03 seconds to build and you didn't even have any coffee

Looks great!

I know you're going flybarless, but wanted to ask what brand/type of paddles those are? I didn't recognize them.

Also, I saw you were using a swash leveler. How much work did you have to do to dial out the interaction?

look forward to seeing how things going with this model after you get the engine broken in and the flybarless setup done.

Nice build Sam!

Dan: those are V-paddles. Ask Sam to tell you a story about those

I'm convinced that Sam goes flybarless just b/c he doesn't have much luck with paddles

Thanks, guys. Yes, those are 80mm V-Blades paddles. I guess I should have used the stock paddles because on the first flight after the first landing one of the paddles flung off during spool up! Fortunately it flung away from me. The paddle went flying so high and far it didn't hit the ground until my main blades took time to actually stop spinning after throttle hold - about 20 seconds. It must be that airfoil design .

With the flybar I dialed out the aileron and elevator interaction via two P-mixes, but I already wiped out the settings so I can't remember exactly. I believe I set both P-mixes to be about -15,-15. I believe elevator had to a higher (further negative) number than aileron. Now with the Vbar, I've not dialed it out on the workbench simple because I want to see how it flies with the Vbar in its current state. If it feels like there is any weirdness in the air I'll play with the P-mixes again, but I instinctively don't want to add P-mixes with the Vbar, being separate gyro for elevator and aileron. It might cause unpredictable flight characteristic with cyclic input. I'm not sure yet, so I will post my finding after today's Vbar maiden flights.

Yes, the Vbar flybarless conversion is done and I will re-maiden it again today for this weekend's Brooks Oregon fun fly event. I should have it ready for night flying too. Pictures and video to come!
