No, I meant, "how heavy is the fenestron unit"

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

Let me see...

The fan assembly is 172.2g with no blades.

I do not know the weight of the assembly with the stock control.

Did several bench runs this past week and all looks great. Its all apart for a few finishing touches and checks after the bench runs. Its hard to inspect the mechanics when they are installed however, they are really very easy to remove for inspection.

It will be soon, very soon.

Added weight of Aluminum control upgrade
The aluminum upgrade weighs less then 18 grams more then the stock Vario setup but provides TONS of peace of mind!!

Looking good! That fennestron is lost in the tail section. You get a much better perspective of the size of the heli with the tail unit installed. This is going to be one very impressive heli! Nice work...

The control upgrade was devised by me and a friend as the Vario unit had a fundamental flaw. It pushes the hub from one side only almost inducing the control rod to bend. The slightest bend in the control rod causes it to lock up and you lose control of the tail. This was my experience with my EC135 hence we devised the modified control unit.

He who dies with the most toys is the winner!

"UIH"

Got this thing in the air several weeks ago. Surprised and terrified all at the same time. I am sure we have all felt this way many time before.

Guess I was surprised the first lift was that easy, then terrified, it was in the air and now I had to hover it around.

Using 2 motors has been somewhat of a challenge, however, it is coming into its own. There were a few issues noted on the first couple of hops but after some thought, some gum flappin at NEHC scale event, and finally some adjustments, it feels pretty good.

A couple pics

This thing has got some game.

Glad To See It..........
Butch, glad to see this baby in the air..... sounds like you are getting things dialed in, and it is looking good....
I think I get the feeling you mention on just about any test pop....there is ALWAYS a lot going on and all you have to depend on is that you did it right......
As it certainly looks like you have done it again!!!!!!!!!

Amazing work as usual.

Not to start a debate or anything but I am very surprised that you are using a CC ESC in that beast. Keep a fire extinguisher around!

I have 7 CC controllers from 50A to 160A. I personally have not had a single issue. I have seen the post and read the story's where on the first few flights or runs the controller toast itself. Guess I have been lucky so far.

The CC controllers are like hard drives, if they run for more than five minutes you have a good one. I have two of them and so far no problems.

There's a saying I heard once...."Nothing good comes in life unless a lot of hard work has preceeded the effort" Butch it looks like your hard work has paid off. Nice to see it's taken to the air.
