Gee, after that first post!!!!
How could I have not test hopped !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Glad to help out... I started with a 5 cell since I forgot what I had worked the numbers on.... didn't take long to figure out that I had used the 6s set up...

This is a set of Hawk mechanics running 620 Maverick blades, and from the couple of test hop's that I made with it, I am pretty much certain that it will carry the fuselage without any problem... after hitting the hold and setting it down, I was able to lift off and touch down no less then 3 times.... this came out very light....and still a bit of headroom left on the settings if we need it....

Glad to help you out Jeff.... now just get out there and KEEP ON PRACTICING!!!!!!!!

It's been a while but started working on the tail assembly of the huey glued the forms in thier places with the brass tubing for the cable drive and running the tail servo pushrod. Hint(don't use ca glue around plastic). Next putting in the mechanic's to mark point to where to mount and get cable lengths cut. Marking where best place is to mount tail servo. Will take some pics of tail and mounting locations later.

Sounds like you are coming along well with the build! Don't forget to take pics. As far as the tail drive and servo control, the golden rule applies... measure 3 times, cut once

All helis and planes have an expiration date stamped on them...you only find it after you crash!!

updates and pics
Worked on the tail section for some time last night. The forms and tubing is install and glued in the tail section. Lined up the mechancis and marked where they need to be glued in. Measuring three times and cutting once (Mojave) Glued the bottom wood in. Getting the placement of where everything should go. Direction aren't the best for a first time builder so taking it slowly. But should have it closer today.

Where do you see me beating you. I've been working on it two hours this morning and gettingno head way. thinking and placement is the hardest part of the build. This cable setup is giving me fits. But thanks for the comments.LOL.

I have to give alot of thank's to Doorman for the greatly setup Mechancis.

updates and more pics
Well worked on the huey 8 hours today. Most of the time was thinkin and planning where to place and cut. Have tail drive cable done and pushrod system is hooked up in rear. Front drive cable is measured and cut ready for hook up. Still figuring out where to run tail servo part of pushrod and mount so there is no movement in it. once that's done the mechanic's can be installed the last time and mounted. Still have to build landing gear. Also have to order magnets to get front of fuse on and off. Was going to mount but no way to get battery in and out.

Well work on the huey a few more hours. It's looking like the end is near. Spend more time today just waiting for glue to dry.

Mechanic's are in cable drive is hooked up and spinning freely and bolted down. Routed the tail pushrod the best and have to secure to he mechanic's tomorrow. Also worked on getting the front of the fuse mounted and setting up pins and dowels. Everything is coming together. Will post more pics soon batteries in camera died on first pic.

More work done today. It's getting there. Alot of gluing done today. Installed the fake landing gear for now. Still working on the servo pushrod setup. Started the front nose work glued in bottom windows and making support to hold it in place with magnets. Here's some pics. It tired me out today. Short notes Sorry guys.

Also now I know why Doorman asked me why I painted it first. Don't ever paint it first. Alot of touching up needed. but lesson learned.

Thank's for the nice comments
Just to let the new peeps know that what to build a Scaler for the first time IT's not as easy as it looks!!!!!!!

But I'm having a blast working on this and can't wait to see the final product when I'm done. But I've had alot of help with this bird and I'm sure they will be proud of it when I'm done too.

Jeff I'm interested in your set up to hold the nose on. I'm facing the same with my 600 size Agusta. Screws aren't going to get it can you eleaborate on how your set up will work?
Thanks

Rcmiket, look at the pics of the ugly wood sticking out the top and bottom of the nose. they interlock with the wood inside the main fuse. then I'll install magnets in the top and bottom piece. and then I'll have rod in the sides to line the nose up with. In the testing phase too. This will work in my mind!!!

hope this helps you.

Jeff

Thanks. I've been following along and noticed what you were planning. Strength is a issue with my build since I'm dealing with a nose wheel. I'm thinking along the same lines as you. If anyone else has any ideas I'm all ears.
Thanks
Mike
