I have done both, and I actually prefer to mount it in the main body fuselage. The reason being trying to access the tail servo for maintence is a pain to have to disassemble the tail section if it is mounted in the tail. If you have it in the main body it makes it a lot easier. I glue a tube in the tail that is just a little bit bigger that the push rod going to the tail to strengthen the push rod. It goes the length of the boom but does not go up the vertical section of the tail. Just the horizontal.

Creamer, thanks. I assume the extra tube is only in the tail section and does not extend all the way to the servo in the main section, correct? Otherwise if you glued it and it extended through both halves you would be able to remove the tail section.

That is correct. The tube is only in the tail and is about 12 inches long. It really helped take up alot of slack in the pushrod. I also got rid of the blue one that comes with the kit and bought a gold-n-rod by sullivan and that also helped a lot.

Anyone know what changes they made to the "V2". I'm looking hard at this one but the flex drive has me a bit spooked. I've read about a few issues in the past.
Thanks

My Seahawk just showed up. Impressive is all I can say. Looks like this should just fall together but I know better.

rcmike,
I'm not sure about the changes on the v2 but I got the v1 last season and have been flying it without any cable issues.

Thanks, To me it looks like they simplified a lot of things. The overall quality is very good. All the parts arrived in tact and accounted for. Think this needs a functional elevator ( I guess that whats you would call it). I'll need to check around for the pro's and cons of doing that. Other wise this looks like it may be the simplest scale build I've ever done.

What's the "preferred" method of attaching the tail section glue or screws into wooden blocks?
Thanks

Attaching the mechanics to the fuse and attaching the tail section
How are people attaching the mechanics to the fuse? The directions are very clear on this. If you just use wood screws into the plywood base won't they work loose after awhile. I wanted to drill all the way through the fuse and bolt it in. Howeverr, I'm not able to slip shims under the plywood so it would be solid and without the shims the bolt would just be compressing against the air space between the fuse and plywood base and wouldn't be very solid.

As for the tail case I am drill through the wood block and fuse and will bolt it in, I am also afraid of just using wood screws for the same reason I don't want to use them on the mechanics.

If anyone has pictures to share on how the attached both the mechanics and tail case it would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Keith

I have worked on 3 of the new V3 hawks with the torque tube tail. The heli's are now rock solid and dont have any tail failures like they had in the past. I am currently working on a new blackhawk that I will post pictures soon.

Has any of you guys still got V1 RCA Hawk and has successfully converted the flex drive cable to the Smartmodel / RC Aerodyne torque tail drive system. I am planning to convert it.

The only problem with doing that is you need a bigger access door in the back of the fuselage. You also have to get the different side frames from RCA to lower the tail case. If you make a bigger access door on the vertical stabilizer and get the side frames from RCA you should be able to convert the fuse.

RC Aerodyne Jayhawk
Thanks Creamer for your advise. This system also comes with a 5 degree gear box which allows the tail boom to bend down to suit the Blackhawk's tail. So I think the orginal TREX 600's side frames are OK.

The big problem is how to cut the a section of the vertical stabilizer while that section can be re-attached to the vertical stabilizer like the RC Aerodyne V3 Blackhawk.

If any of you guys know how to cut the fibre class please feel free to help/comment.

Thanks

I would try a hot knife, that would make a smaller cut than a dremel and would be easier than multiple passes with a regular knife.I don't always fly helis, but when I do I prefer to fly scale.

+1 on the hot knife

Nice clean cut with little effort.
I bought mine at Michaels for $14.00 but they can be found elsewhere for less sometimes.

Good luck on ur project!!
