Thought I share my latest winterproject with you, last years autum
I got my hands on a second hand Graupner Nh 90 fuse adapted for a turbine mechanic,fuse itself had been painted and some stuff was already installed like navlights and a upgraded metalgeared taildrive, also the taildriveshaft was replaced to the Vario one...so i had this big empty fuse and wanted go electric, after gathering as much info as possibble I decieded to go for a Skyfox mechanic, talked with Joe at Vario Usa and bought a nice specialadapted motormount for the skyfox, reason for choose of the skyfox was that I think that Vario had the most userfriendly way to get parts, not the cheapest one but i think when coming down to get scaleparts quickly they are outstanding with theirs webbased order system.
I have both the Vario skyfox 2 blade head and the Graupner 4 blade one, bought the graupner 825 blades and initially gone do the hovertest with the skyfox 2 blade head.
Mine NH 90 setup looks like this
Graupner NH 90 turbine version
Skyfox mechanics with gearing 10.55
Graupner 825 blades semisymetrical
Vario taildrive system with 4 bladed tail
Futaba servo setup on the mechanic and tail(8 kilos on tail,10kilos on cyclic)
Futaba Gy 502
Bms servos for the retracts
Scorpion 4035-500kv motor
Turnigy Monster 200A esc (overkilled, but was only in stock
Turnigy 10s 5800 wired in serie
cockpit with night lights and pilots,weather radar and gps in the panel with ligths..etc
servoslower for realistic retractcontrol
I have the skookum 360 that is going to be installed with 4 bladed head but at this point I havent decieded if to use a stabilizationsystem or not, If anyone has some good initial flying tip i appreciated it, this is the largest heli I ever built and i think the behavior is going to be like flyin a bus?
