The air exhaust I got from RC Aerodyne and all that was done to the inlets was to wrap lexan plastic over the intake and paint them. It was a really easy process and took only an hour to complete.

Ok more additions. These are pictures of all the lights I put on the helicopter. I have all the navs and beacon and a Xeon strobe. I also added a retractable landing light. It turned out really well.
I am now about 99% complete with all the upgrades that I wanted to make.

I figured I would put the helicopter in its natural habitat. I am currently working on the 3rd video of this helicopter. I am going to take it to a lot of different places to fly and shot the video so it may take awhile to complete.

Hi Guys,

Due to the RC Aerodyne Jayhawk version 1 is quite heavy, I just wondering if it is OK to replace 600mm main blades with 700mm blades. I am using flybar main rotor head and 2 blades tail rotor head, I fly with 12s setup on Scorpion 4025-630kv.

Please feel free to give me some advice.

Thanks

Hi Choppercopter,

I did try this a few times, but I was not really font of the result.
While in the spoolup phase, the head was really shaking badly. I got a little frightened that it would brake out of the fuse.
When it has successfully started up, then it flies ok.
The 12S can perfectly handle the bigger blades.

But due to the startup problems, I went back to the 600 blades.
One time while starting up, it began to shake so bad that the paddles struck the top of the fuse. No damage or so, but that was the limit for me to go back.

Perhaps when flying flybarless it works better?

Thanks racebeest,

The reason I want to stretch to 700mm is to keep the helicopter more stable in the air. Was your Jayhawk fly more stable with 700mm blades than 600mm blades? Did you have to replace longer tail blades as well or is it OK to fly with existing tail blades? Most of 700mm blades have 5mm hole, is it OK to use it with 4mm bolt in 600 blade grip?

Thanks

I run 688's along with 90 size tail blades on mine. If you are going to run the longer blades I would recommend bracing the top of the mechanics in one or two locations. I found that the top of the frame was flexing slightly on mine. Once I braced it fore and aft of the main shaft it was fine.

Thanks ea01bg

I already have installed the third bearing block and replaced the longer main shaft from Trex 600CF and extra aluminum frame mounting bolts for my mechanic (Trex 600ESP) to strengthen the frame. Do you have any pictures of your hawk?

Choppercopter,

You have those special rings to go from a 5mm hole to a 4mm.
I used these to fit the standard bolt.
I can't say that it flew more stable, since I only hovered with it.
The second and third time I had these startup problems and that's why I stopped using the 700 blades.
But maybe if you get the head more stable it will work (as others seem to fly without problems)
I'm thinking about flying flybarless with this one.
I'm using a beastX on my other heli and that is really working well.
The jayhawk is really sensitive to wind and airflow. This is what I think causes the instability.
A beastX (or other electronic flybar) will correct this if you're not giving stick input.
the only reason I have not tried it yet, is that my servo's are not strong enough. So I have to replace them.
This is something for later :-)

I built mine electric but I see no reason why my 600 Nitro wouldn't fit. The fuselage has lots of room.

Don't Panic

I just got the RC Aerodyne Blackhawk (600 size). I have been reading this thread and saw a reference to mounting the tail servo in the removable tail section. Seems like a good idea since it will shorten the length of the control rod. However, I didn't see any pictures posted by someone that has done this. If anyone has actually done this I would appreciate a couple of pictures. Also, I'm always up for opinions. Is mounting the servo aft, is this a good idea, bad idea, or does it not matter. Thanks, Keith
