i am using century's diamond 4 bladed head and so far i have used century's rotortech and funkey's 660mm fiberglass blades. both hover very well and ive only done a small figure eight with the rotortechs. only three flights on the fuse so far. will do more when i get a chance to fly it again.
Nick, progress is slow, got some projects for others i am trying to get gone so everything else is slow progress.

actually Barry, its miniatures gearbox from the xcell. course it was a copy of vario/graupner's.
i like its compactconstruction and use of metal gears. you can also reverse the direction of rotation which came in handy since the tail drive in the mechanics had to be lowered and run underneath the main gear. i thought also of running the main rotor ccw as per the full size but flying a ccw machine freaks me out too much and i had a tough time getting used to it and gave up.

10-4. Yeah, those boxes are almost identical. The mounting hole pattern is different by under 1/2 mm. Close enough to fudge if you open up the holes in the tail case.

So you just can't seem to get used to the left lean with CCW rotation... I guess there are worse things in life

Yeah, but that's because 1 of your legs is shorter than the other...

64D flight vid
as we all know, it gets flown long before it gets finished, and it doesnt have to be finished to go to ircha, it just has to be flying
still working on a few issues but it flies very very well.

Can you show us how you setup the Rotor Head? CW or CCW? Probably swash phase settings? Thanks

the t/r gearbox is a std xcell 60 but one from a century hawk (use the metal gear upgrade if you do)will also fit so long as you make the woodwork for it to mount to. i will get pics of the swash setup when i get a chance. i am spining the head CW.

Nice work on the tail section.

I think on my MD500E, I will try and lean to the right a little more. Maybe that will help me with the CCW rotation!!!!

Just call me Farmer Brown. 'Cause I know how to really plant 'em

Hey looks like your angle is good for the hover, just a note the 64 also sits 3 degrees left side low. So when your sitting in it looking forwarits the left side or #1 side. Looks like i want see this till the fly in.
