Wow, except for the pic showing the blades I would have said that is not a 450 size. Good detail, post a pic of it flying if you can.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

Well, that sucks. Because of your post I just spent more money on a fuselage that I don't need. Well maybe it will get me back into flying instead of RR.

Hey Reaper31
Because of you I just received my UH1-B fuselage, but no instructions. I emailed Aerodyne but it's the weekend so don't expect any info till Monday.
See my other thread. Do you have any comments, hints, or warnings.

Most of the time a lot of the fuselages do not really need instructions maybe unless you are really really new to the hobby world. Sometimes things only go together one way. There are alot of forums out here that does go through some building steps.

Thanks guys. This is not my first helicopter, but the first scale. All parts made sense except the wooden mounting parts were new to me so I wanted just some idea how to use them. The build sites gave me the necessary info and now I can start tonight.
Also I wasn't happy about the push rod for the tail and one suggested the flex plastic push rods from a hobby shop. (Sullivan's Gold-n-Rod #515 semi-flex cable.)

Hey gyrofreak,
mine did not come with instructions either. It went together pretty easy. I like to epoxy the landing gear to the fuse on these little ones so i put it together with some tiny screws and a drill. Then after painting i glued it to the fuse (was not sure how long that this aluminum would hold). The little wooden parts are used to prop up the mechanics my kit had way to many. The mechanics mounting screws go all the way through the cut out in the shims.
