FBL Embla 450 finished
Hi Guys
Finally finished my Embla 450 (lost my heli mojo for a while there)

No vid yet, as it was only finished a few hours ago.

Hirobo Embla 450 FBL kit only (no motor and esc, but has CF blades)
Futaba CGY750 FBL gyro
Futaba BLS257 tail servo
Futaba S3156 metal geared digital cyclic servos
Futaba R6203SB reciever
YGE 40a 6s esc
Thunder Power 6s 1300mah 35c lipo
Scorpion 2000kv motor
12t pinion
Gov RPM is set for about 3300rpm.

Pitch is just under 14deg, no idea on cyclic

The blades are stock Hirobo as supplied with the kit, but with all this overcast silver sky weather we are having, I need some colour to see the heli.
So a quick trip to bunnings (hardware store), and away we go with Orange blade tips

Its unflown, as the weather is a bit poo here lately, and blazing hot!
Friday was up to 42deg C, or 107.6F.
It brings strong easterly hot winds with it.
So for now its airconditioning and beers

PICS!!





Cheers
For the love of the hobby

Hi Gorn,

Very nice Embla!
Just curious, why did you decide on using 6S cells? Also, how many minutes of flight time do you get with the 1300mah battery?

Regards.

Hi ritsuku

Thank you.

I went with 6s for maximum efficiency.
I find with 3s, Im lucky if I can get 4mins of flying time.
With 6s, amp draw is very low, efficiency is higher, so I should get longer flying time.

I have not done a 3d flight with it yet, so I cannot comment on how long I can fly for just yet.

We have been having very hot and windy crappy weather here lately, which is not ideal for flying 450's

Aaron, am looking forward to hear the results of your maiden flight!
I'm just using the stock ESC and motor, and with 2200mah 3S cells, I set/limit my flight time to 5minutes. I only do mild 3D (flips, rolls, inverts).
