Looking for info on an Airstar Mongoose with 950mm blades
does anybody here have pictures of subject above? I'm thinking about stepping up from 810's to the 950mm blades but I don't know the boom & belt size needed for this project, any ryders here with pictures & tips?

Thank you

You need a 2240mm belt and the boom needs to be about 38.5". The belt length is assuming you don't have the driven tail. Can post a picture of a set up tomorrow.

2240 Belt with a 39 3/16" Boom. Those are actually 850mm blades, but the 950s work fine on their too.

I currently am swinging 850 mm blades on a standard size tail boom. So, the main blades over lap the tail rotor.

I am working to do the same thing. I want 950 mm blades because I want to use my Goose for aerial photography.

But I gave up on painted tail boom I ordered January 2nd because the paint shop is so excessively behind and it still wasn't back as of mid March.

I finally told Airstar to send an unpainted one. It had a slight ding in it... But now I need to get the belt. So, let me know which size belt you end up going with.

Keep me posted because I want to set mine up properly too and am interested to hear how well it flies. Thanks.

Mine has white/orange 950mm blades with an orange boom
Waiting for clutch collet from josef to go on my axi electric motor.
Change out the belt gears too ( for better tail blade rpm)
