Custom tail for Mikado 600
Hey all thought I would share my most recent project with you. This all stared with a little tail bump that turned into $150 crash. I bumped my tail on an auto and ended up breaking the y fork and both plastic links and had lost the tail an inch up. It didn't end well. So I set out to beef up the mikado tail. Here's what I came up with. I started with a Quick UK tail and and Outrage pitch fork,the rest is custom made. It is a dual link top bottom and ball raced all around. I decided to make a hard link between the top and bottom on the slider to make it a more solid link and make sure movement was smooth and lineiar. I am also proud to say that with 3 of the 6 screws missing it still works just in case. Heres some pics

Hey thanks guys, I am glad you like it. I left quite a bit of material on it since I wanted to get some test flights and see how the final fit and finish works out. I test hovered it in the garage last night and it hovered fine. Once the rain subsides it will be given a more through testing. I plan on trimming it down quite a bit to get to a target weight of 15 grams. The stock tail components come in at 5.2 grams so it will be a bit on the heavy side, but that means bigger batteries whoo. I designed this for a 700 class helicopter and since we have a year till Mikado comes out with theirs I couldn't wait. I have some other modifications coming and I will post pics when I get them done. Let me know if you guys have any ideas I am taking it back into the shop on wednesday to trim it down some.
