I'm using 600mm Gohbee CF blades, mainly because I had 3 sets of them on hand. I've balanced them with tape for now, I'll paint them a bit later and use the paint to get the final balance done.

Still haven't done the drawing on the mount yet, we'll do that after flying the mechanics a few times.

Looks like she's flying nice! What head speed did you end up running?

Here's a build tip for ya: when you put the fuse half alignment pins in, use double the wood thickness for the side that the knurled pins press into. The pins are a tad long and stick out far enough that they bind when you pull the fuse halfs apart. Also, use painters tape and clamps to keep the fuse sides lined up while you match drill the holes. Lastly, pre drill the pilot hole through the wood on one side, then assemble the fuse halfs and continue to transfer the hole. There is very little room for drilling, so this saves you time and frustration. Ask me how I know...

1470, may try a little lower next time I fly it. Tail authority was good at 1470.

Flew mine at 1325 rpm, but the vibes from the stiff blades were messing with the vbar and causing a bobble in FF. Didn't help that the scale head has no dampening either I'm bumping up the head speed and I'm gonna try the new fiber reinforced scale blades from RCA. They have a lot more flex and thinner scale cross section.

Thanks for the information!

Let me know how the scale blades work out, I've seen some people claim that they don't work well with stabilization.

Hello ,

Marvelous hover flight.
So can you confirm you scorpion model motor and pinion ( 10/11 tooth ?), lipo and Esc ?

For the blades , like i said with a frenc forum , we can see that smartmodel blades flies not so weel ( avarage mA consumed is hight), the 550 mm century heli blade seems to be very well ( a french pilot flies well without stabilisation)and the best of seems to be the Mblades but out of stock and out of my bank ( mor 60 $ each blade).

All this informations are the begeninning of the test....I'll give you some news if you want.

So for you, tell us more of your feeling flight aand your conversion system ....

Best regards

Yeah, the first version of those blades were heavy. Average blade weight was 220 grams. The latest version have gone on a diet, so we'll see. I don't even know if they are out yet. I have the Century 600mm silver blades on mine now.

I'm using the Scorpion 4025-630 with the stock 20 tooth pinion and 170 tooth main gear. On the nitro version this is the only choice you have as far as I know.

Using 6S battery for testing, when I get it in the fuselage I'll be using 2-3S 5000 packs, they will mount to the floor on each side of the mechanics. This is what I did on my 500E.

For now I'm using a Castle Creations HV-85 and Medusa Potencia BEC, will be swapping over to a ICE-100.

If you look closely in the picture, you can see the battery pack under the seat and extending back. I have black construction paper covers over the packs, keeping them somewhat out of sight.

Hello ,

thanks, but you have always a scale ( hugue) with nitro mechanic converted in electric one or it's an ESP on your picture..for the motor i think you can choose the 1100 KV with a 10 11 pinion ?!

I'm buying a nitro one to convert like you, thanks to give us regulary information

Best regards

The Hughes has the original 600E mechanics. I'm using the helical gear and pinion (11 tooth pinion) with an ICE 100 and Neu 1907/H/1Y (1400 Kv)

These pictures show where the batteries are for perfect COG without the windows and cockpit installed. I should be able to slide the batteries back some more when everything is complete.

Cockpit is going to look great when it's all done!

Views from the side, this is going to work out great!

Hello ,

Now i understand....

For AS 350 , so you consider that your fly test was enough and OK, so you begin to put it in the fuse ?

One more time, thanks to inform us every day

Best regards.

P.S: my CNC manufacter is ready to make your motor mount object

Get better soon...need more build pics

I can tell you one thing, the Rex600E mechanics don't fit this fuse. The elevator servo won't clear the doghouse on the side. I may just buy a set of the new century scale mechanics with e-power motor mount and clutch adapter and put the rex mechanics in something else. They just came out...

I'm told that the Chaos 600e is based on the rex600N so the servo layout is different. It also has wider frames.

This is why I'm installing my 550E with a 600 boom and it does fit HEHEHE suckah

Checkout my TT MD530 up for sale which had the 550 installed in it too.

I'm only selling the fuse though and keeping the 550 for the AS350

When I installed it into the MD530 I just simply rotated the servos putting the servo shaft on the bottom and used linkages from a 600 which allowed more of a distance to the swash, thus keeping the servo horns below the point where the doghouse meets the fuse. It really works out nicely.

This is one advantage the 550 has over the 600's linkages to bellcranks. The 550 has a straight shot to the swash which can be moved around for added room if needed. GET A 550! LOL

Cheers!
