Jockobadger.... What's the link to the CineScale Gazelle and pricing? I'm interested in a Gazelle but can't find it on their site

Thanks Peter Rob,

I appreciate your post very much. Believe me, I won't send off any money until I'm reasonably sure of what I'm doing. I just got done looking at the Vario Gazelle on the Starwood site and it looks great. Plus, it's more local (for me) and there are many scale parts available. I have read a lot of posts about the fenestron units that are out there. Most of them are not very complimentary. I've seen the one that Bwellmaker is using on his Comanche, for instance. Starwood has the "13 blade Fenestron" that looks very much like the one on the Cine Scale site. What do you know about this topic? A bunch, I'm sure, and I can use the advice. Starwood also has the "speedup" gearbox that is used with the fenestron. I think I understand the purpose of this - to give the heli more tail authority by increasing the rpm of the fenestron? i.e. above and beyond that provided by the source that is spinning the main rotor? How does one determine the gear ratio of the speedup gearbox? Or is that even adjustable? So many questions, but that's what make this interesting and fun. Does the Vario fuselage have the same level of "built-in" scale detail that the Cine Scale fuselage appeared to have? Sorry for the dumb questions, but one can't learn without asking them. Thanks again.

Hello F3J,

This is it: http://www.cine-scale.com/

I just checked the site and it's kind of hard to tell what fuselages are for sale. It's clear that there are a lot of parts available, and the site suggests that a Gazelle is still available. Don't know....? If you check into it, e.g. contact them, please let us know what you find out. Thanks very much. J

Geez, that thing is beautiful! What is the "periscope" affair mounted above the cockpit? Thanks

Gazelle flying
Ian, photo's are great, nice to see it flying well at last

Jockobadger, I f you are still interested in the Vario Gazelle, Vario have discounted the kit and fenestron until 31st October 2012, I am tempted to get another, as I have a spare PHT3-3

Mine was built by Cine Scale and whilst from a foot away it looks great, the actual build quality (i.e. the way in which scale details have been attached etc) is nothing short of appalling (sorry Ben but true). When trying to get this in the air, it really was a case of two steps forward one step back as it seemed that everything you touched just fell off.

That said, I am over the moon with it! it really is a stunning helicotper that all who see it are impressed. In the air, as you can see from the pics, it does look real which is what we all aspire to.

General quality of the fuesalge is ok (I know Peter had issues with the thickness of the tail) but anyone who saw me fly it on Sunday will tell you I really gave it some hammer and it performed perfectly.

The Vario product will I'm sure be better in quality and you can convert it to put the turbine in the right place if that's what you want to do. I was tempted because of the issues above to strip mine right back and start again on the detail, but those who know me will realise I don't have the time to do it... so it will stay as it is.

Video...
Thanks to Skytrak Video I have some footage of the flying at the weekend. I thought the field was a little tight but still great fun.

Thanks to all again for a great day and perfect weather.
