st

That would have been about 1700-1750 head speed on a 6.9 ratio.Still playing a little with head speed but sweet spot will be somewhere between 1730-1800.

Thx

Like the sound
BarracudaHockey,

Thats nice, but I like the sound of Zman's gasser. I like electrics also. I am waiting for UPS to deliver my Chaos 600 super combo kit.

That will get me warmmed up to fly the more expensive gasser. Its good to have both. I will have two projects going at the same time. Cool.!!!

Zman,
Thanks for the info. Thats the ratio that I am going to use.

My first venture into scale
Hello Zman;
Congratulations, your Jet Ranger is to be admired. Thank-you for the closeup photos. I wondered how much room there was to service the mechanics with the front section removed. Well done.

Not the most exciting flight. It was much darker than the video appears so I had to keep the heli closer. I guess the camera had a low light function enabled or something. Anyway, it gives a fairly descent representation of the lighting I have installed. Hope you like.

Yup, same thing happened to me when I was filming a review for a night lighting set, it looked a whole lot darker when we were out there than the video came out looking.

My first venture into scale
Hello ZMAN & guys;

I am wondering if having a fuselage helps to keep any of the dirt that swirls up off the ground from sticking to your heli. I don't mind wiping some dust off after flying, but I hate the abrasive stuff that adheres to balls and links and the main shaft etc. that I keep well lubed.
Thanks!

boom questions
I'm kind of stuck on the tail boom installation on my G20 JR, did you put it together as a unit in the rear and bolt it to the main chassis with the 8 bolts last? It looks like the best way but harder to get the gear mesh right. That's one part in the instructions I don't see covered.

For boom using stock parts, set your gear mesh before installing it in fuse. You will then insert the boom without the rear tail case on. It is tricky but the rear tail case can be installed, just need some patience and a third hand if you have it.

Alternatively, you can upgrade to this part

and this process becomes much easier. Considering the quality of what you are getting and the price, it is a bargain.

Yeah that was what I tried first thing but with the main shaft sticking out the collision with the back of the fuse prevented me from getting to any but the very aft screw on the tail gear box. If I reversed the screws if would be better since the open side I could get the ball driver in but the way it is the nuts are on that side. No I haven't started or flown the heli yet it is a new build. As you know the JR fuse changed a few parts on the G20 but they wouldn't affect going without the fuse just add the tail boom supports and stock gear and fly as far as I can tell.
That upgrade part is out of stock but thanks for the suggestion I'll keep an eye open for it DTR.

Okay,

Reason I asked is I highly suggest you build the heli pod and boom and get it tweaked out before putting it in fuse. What you want is a smooth heli and consistent engine before putting a fuse on it. It will save headache and time in the end.

As for tail, as you mentioned, it would be almost impossible to set and secure the boom and case to main frame with fuse on so you will need to do that first and then slide into fuse and then put the rear together.

Sure I fly all my heli's stock before installing them in a scale fuse.
I noticed in the instruction sheet they showed the main shaft off when installing it so I guess that's how I'll be able to get the tail gear box on pushing the boom past the fixed point.

you either need to trim the back end of the fuse off if it's too long. When they fit perfectly, you will slide the fuse in past where it sits bolted down, fasten the tail then slide it forward into place and bolt the main frame down.
