I agree Tom, this is one the best threads I've ever been on.

Where are you getting your 3 blade tail rotor, that is a must have!!! It would definitely complete the look.

Mike, very cool collection of hardware. For the longest time, I wanted one of those big German scale gliders. I've never even seen one except in photos, but I bet they are incredible to experience first hand. The sub is way cool too. Would love to strap a Go-Pro HD in the underwater housing to one. Or better yet, a camera with a XMTR for FPV!!!

I understand about the photos, no prob. I only have a regular cell so I wouldn't see much anyway. Getting them from the computer to RunRyder is straightforward, just click on "Upload Photos" button to the left of where you're typing your message. Getting them from your phone to the PC is another matter. If you have a USB port on your phone, you could transfer it like that, or through a memory card if you have a similar slot on your PC. Or email it from your phone to your computer, probably the easiest.

I've got half a dozen planks, including one of the original Great Planes 120 Super Sportsters with an OS 120 4 stroke, what a sound. It is 20 years old and prob. has 6 flights on it. I don't belong to a club, don't like them. I view flying, plank, heli, whatever, as a solitary meditative experience. The only plank I ever fly is my Sophisticated Lady with a Rimfire .10 and 3S lipo. I use it to make my airborne vids with my lightweight Aiptek HD camera.

Helicopters have become, actually have always been, my true love. They're just so damn fascinating to watch and fly. And believe me, I don't do it because of this, not in the least, but people always stop and stare when you're flying a heli. A plane maybe, maybe not. I think that shows a fascination outside of our obsessive selves as well

Mike,

You painted the battery baskets black. Nice touch.

You also installed the ESC inside the heli. Is it heating up much? I've installed mine on the outside of the frame in the opening where the muffler was installed.

Thanks for sharing.

Tom

Regarding the esc
All my electronics are inside my black cover which happens to be inside the cockpit behind the front seats. There are no issues as far as heat. Will post more pictures as soon as i take themvwith my phone and transfer them into my laptop.

Mike & Tom,

Hope you guys had a great weekend!

Nice photos Mike. Is the cover over the electronics molded plastic? That's about the only part, that and no wire baskets, that I don't like about mine, the exposed electrics.

Motors - are you guys both running the Scorpion HK-4025-890kv? If so, how are you coupling to the rotor?? I'm using a 5mm prop shaft adaptor to which I bolt the stock Hirobo fan & clutch assembly, then slip it into the clutch bell.

Sorry, that is not a 5mm prop shaft adaptor I'm using on the Rimfire, that's what I was planning on using on the Scorpion. My Rimfire adaptor bolts directly to the motor, which I really like.

Jack,

Chuck Nowell did both of our eLama conversions. They are slightly different. I have not taken photos of it so I'll have to defer to Chuck on how he did the mod. Hopefully he is reading this thread and will pass on the info.

Both Mike and I are using the Scorpion HK-4025-890kv motor on 6s 5 to 6000mAh. I' use both configurations:
2 each 6s 3000mAh
2 each 3s 5000mAh

I like the 3 s better as the batteries are smaller and lighter. Mike's set up looks better than mine. I'm getting ready to paint my butter dishes sans battery holders. Just haven't decided to make them black like Mikes or red to match the heli. May even go brown like some canvas covering are on the full scale.

We'll see

This hobby is WAY too expensive!!

The Quick UK site still shows the 3 blade tail and pitch slider:

The sad part is that mine is still two bladed.

Hey Guys,

Couldn't stand it Just ordered the Lama 3 blade tail assy.,
3 blade pitch slider, and 2 sets of the NHP 75 mm tail blades from Quick UK.

Total including VAT and shipping is $146.58.

http://www.quickuk.eu/products/1710...der_lst-09.html

http://www.quickuk.eu/products/1709...bly_lst-11.html

http://www.quickuk.eu/products/458/...es_nhp0032.html

I'm running 80mm carbon blades now so the 75s should be perfect. curious to see how it affects tailrotor response, gyro gain, etc.

Thanks guys. The dummy tank and framing is a scratchbuilt item. I relocated most of the servos to clear up the cabin and put the batteries under the cabin floor. 6S 4000mAh (two 3S packs). I think the motor is too small for 3 blade main and tail so it remains a 2 blader for now.
