Amazing Ady, leading the way again absolutely brilliant.

Which mixer are you trying to use? I have no idea how control actually works on a K-Max but I would try the TH-2 GP mixer from TechModelProducts - http://www.tech-mp.com/kits.php I used it in my KA-22 which has the rotor heads side by side but not as close as yours.

The mixer can be configured to this layout and will tilt one swashplate forward the other back to achieve rudder control, you could use DCP for roll control but I would imagine just tilting both swashplates together will give this, again the mixer works well in this respect

How are you driving the other rotor head and are you using two motors, absolutely brilliant still shaking my head in wonderment

It's cool but I can't help but wonder if those tail gears will be stout enough to handle the load of driving a second rotor head. I'm looking forward to an in flight vid for sure.

Here's an idea, why dont you use two motors one for each rotor, that way there would be little load on the gears as all they would be doing was keeping phase.

Love this its brillaint

hi , kind words , thank you , the two auto gears mesh a treat , the tail gears also help with loading . my latest tandem didn`t strip the umbrella gears , so hopefully with the added auto gear mesh , they shouldn`t strip , time will tell tho , and if it strips and smacks in , it doesn`t really matter , ken , a club memeber has built a small tandem , he uses two motors and the TT to help with timing , he also mentioned that to me , the only problem i found was that to mesh the two main gears ment the heads where alot further apart , will try this version first

Right got you now couldnt see in the pictures that the two auto gears also mesh thats really neat and should be fine.

You have got to make a Kaman HH-43 Huskie fuse for it!! -

Should fit as the body is very blocky
