Hello All,

Just want to share with you guys my new project Jan/2010.

Today was my first day laying out the Trex 700 mechanic into the fuselage.

I did a few modification on the mechanic and adjustment on the fuselage to make both of them fit.

I'm currently waiting for my 3G Flybarless kits from Align to arrive. I'm planning to install the 3G trex 700 flybarless system into to this heli.

I will post more photos as the project progress...

Cheers!

Chapter,

Thanks for your comments Trickfrog / Dr. Copter

The home I live in is build in 1850 historic district of Savannah.
Kitchen is small but my fiance makes a lot of magic happen in that kitchen.

Hey Alex,

What engine did you installed in your heli?
I'm using the YS91 in my heli. hopefully it will give me the speed.

Do you have any photos build to share with us?

Thanks,

Thunder Tiger is right. I bought the fuselage from Heliproz in Billing MT for $425.00.

Dr. Copter, What is a good (strong) Retract Servo should I use for this heli if I'm planning to use the stock set-up one servo to operate all three retracts gear?

Today, I'm working the electronics set-up and still waiting for the Flybarless 3G from Align to arrive.

I'm planning to use the following components for the heli:
Electronic:
1) JR 8717 servos for cyclic/throttle.
2) JR 8900G for the tail servo.
3) 9-channel JR R921 receiver.
4) Fromenco Arizona Voltage Regulator.
5) SwitchGlow.
6) 3G Flybarless system from Align for Trex 700N.
7) Align Govenor G600.
8) Fromenco Relions 7.4V 5200mA Lithium Ion.
Engine:
1) YS91
2) Hitori exhaust pipe
Blades:
1) Align new main blade 3G 690mm.
2) Align tail blade 105mm.
Lighting:
1) Dimension Engineering.
Retract Servos:
1) Not sure which one to use yet?

Will post more photo soon...

Gents, Thanks for all the kind feedback and comments.

Going to order two HiTec HS-75 BB servos tomorrow.
I'm planning to use one for the front gear and one for the rack in the back gear. This servo has good torque / good price but don't like the plastic gear trans.

good grief!!! i need to start proofreading my posts, anyway, use of two servos is smart as this makes seting it up easier. one thing i have noticed about the tt way of doin the retracts on that bird is the nosegear. it retracts rearwards where on the fullsize, it retracts forward with bout a third of the wheel still exposed. i would have to change it

Completed the Wood-frame work and match drilled to the fuselage.
So far the Trex-700N mechanic fit well into this Thunder Tiger fuselage.

Just installed two custom designed FWD Lateral left and right brackets to support the Trex 700N mechanic and also drilled two holes at the AFT section of the left and right Trex frame to mount the rear support brackets that came with the kit.

Thanks Alex,

How is France?

Worked on the FWD section of the nose last two days.
Designed/installed 4 new structural supports made from 1/8" thick plywood. The purpose of this installation is to eliminate the original exterior mounting tap screws. This will give the helicopter exterior smoother skin and clean look.

Next Step is to install the alignment dow-pin and locking mechanism into the 4 wood structural supports.

Just received the 3G Flybarless Align system for Trex 700N and Retract servos today.

3G flybarless system from Align is sweet and fit really nice.
With this flybarless rotor head installed, I don't have to remove the Rotor head assembly when removing the FWD Nose section fuselage in and out for mechanics servicing.

Here are some photos taken this morning.
