Fifty Titan in Bell 222
Has anyone installed a Raptor 50 Titan into a Bell 222 fuselage (Century)? I'm stuck on the tail boom/belt - do I go with a 60 tail end or what???

Up, up and away!

Hey BigD
If I'm understanding your question correctly. What you will need to do is:
Send a piece of string (3 times the length of the fus) through the fuselage boom. With the heli boom installed and belt installed. Set the mechanics next to the fus and tie the string to the belt. Now you can lift and slide the mechanics into the fus. While at the same time using the string to keep tension on the belt as you position the mechanics in the fuselage. To get the tail rotor box on you will need to slide the mechanics as far back into the Bell fus. as you can. This should give you enough mechanics boom sticking out to be able to install the tail case. Once you have aligned the mechanics into the heli(left/right,up/down/level,in/out) Then is the time to determine mechanics mounting bolt locations. Use your top fus. hatch to help
position the mechanics in the right location. Trying to locate the main rotor shaft in the exact center of the Bell top hatch.
I've built a couple of Century 90 Bell 222's using Raptor 90 mechanics utilizing torque tube's. The only thing that I did not have to do as described above was use a string to keep the belt under tension. But I have used the complete above procedure when working on other scale fuselages using belt drive tails.
I hope this is of some small help.
