I just wanted to share my new canopy for my R90 with the c spec in it. When I got this it was stock white.I sanded the clear coat then primed. I then applied
2 top coats of each color. Then I clear coated and wet sanded. I then applied the decals and 4 more coats of clear. I gave $40 for the canopy and got about 20 bucks in the paint and decals. This is the first canopy I ever did. I am very happy with the way it turned out

This is my 2nd R90 I just got from Helijimbo. I am in the process of putting the electronics in it pcm 8311s,Reactor X,GV1/9253,770/8900 . I already went through it and checked everything.I got a 91 SZ with the OMI big bore mod from jasnlemons (that I am very happy with) to put in it and a hatori pipe from TankDirt. I will post some more pics of the finished product later. I am very stoked to fly it. I will try and post some videos when I get it going,and it warms up.I have to figure out how to do videos first Thanks for looking guys and thanks to the guys that I bought parts from on here,and RR for the great site to display it on

Fly it ! Crash it ! Rebuild it ! Repeat as needed !! Everett

Missing thrust collar
I just took my grips off to change from the blue dampers to the red ones. I pulled the thrust bearings out of the first grip to lube them and there was no thrust collar behind the thrust bearing.I had to look three times to make sure I was seeing what I thought i was seeing. So I pulled the second set out of the other grip and that collar was in there. Well I didn't have one so I went to the hardware store,no luck finding anything that thin 1/1000 it's thin , So I made one out of a thin piece of tin I miked for the correct thickness.I cut it out to the proper OD with a pair of scissors and perfected it with a file,then used the dremel to work the center out to the right ID.Finally about an hour later I had my second thrust collar.
Better than waiting for 3 days for one to get here from heli proz. Besides, I would have had to order some extra stuff to make it worth the shipping.
Try explaining that to the wife. Uh baby I had to order $100 dollars worth to get a discount on shipping for that $2.00 set of thrust collars. Yea that would have went over real smooth

Necessity the mother of invention
Just thought I would share,well back at it
Later Everett

you have the wrong gearing in that heli for that motor you need to white gear its 91 tooth for 8.27 you have 8.45 now no good for the Os loose the side plates and base plate that will lighten you the heli some. the black paddles will be slow get the red one and loose the end caps make them about 21 grams

Thanks Dino I got a set of super stubz coming for it.
I got a 90 tooth delren gear I was thinking about putting on it.
I like to run around 1850 to 1900 HS with my GV1, would it be better to put the 8.27 or the 8.18 gearing on the OMI modded sz engine
The black paddles and the 8.45 gearing was on it when I got it I just haven't got far enough into it to change the gearing yet but that's about what I'm getting ready to do next

I'm running the 8.27 on my other R90 with the omi cspec with 11 1/2 pitch it's ok but I can bog it if I'm not careful.
Will switching to the 8.18 help that any?

Any advice on the gearing would be great. Everett
