Gear ratio
Yep My gear ratio is all wrong on the 109.I have 20t gear and want to change down to the 17t thats available so I can run the speeds you are running - that will be my winter improvement work.

Very nice Heli you have there - Looks smooth. I like the 4 blade head.Did you use a belt or TT to drive the tail? Can you put up some details?Blade size rpm - flight times etc??
I was watching the Jayhawk on TV last night.Show called coastguard Alaska - amazing big heli. The Irish CG have taken delivery of Sikorsky s92 Helis. Would love to build one of those but don't think anyone makes them in 700 size

Thanks,
It has a plug and play main rotorhead(that I modified)and a tail rotor from RC Areodyne. I am using Align 600 on the main and 95mm on the tail rotor blades spinning at around 1625rpm. I am also using a flex cable drive from Dr.Tim. The mechanics is a Chaos600 with a HeliBug gasser conversion. I only have a 10oz tank so I can fly for about seven min.s with half a tank of fuel left over when I land. The fuel is Coleman with a 40:1 oil mix.
Thanks for asking.

Thanks for the info on your setup.would like a look at that flex drive sometime😄.I have just ordered the 17T pinion from helibug to calm down my head speed to something a bit slower so I will strip her down over the winter,
Always work to be done😄

So from what I understand, the pinion gear for a HeliBug conversion is specifically made for the frame when ordered as a kit. In your case, I assume your frame was made for a 20T pinion gear.If I am correct, you will have to adjust quite a bit of frame screw holes to correctly position the pinion to the main gear. If this is your intention,please let me know how everything turned out when your done.
Thanks

Yes I suppose you could doctor the frames to make slots for main gear to adjust on the existing 20t frames but then you are into adjusting gear mesh etc. I just ordered new 17t side frames. That's one thing I liked about the helibug. The gear mesh is already spot on if you build the frames correctly. I have a g20 radikal, getting the gear mesh correct and having every thing run smooth took a fair bit of time first go at it.with the helibug just tighten the screws correctly and away you go. I'll see how it goes when they arrive - they still at USPS in Chicago waiting to cross the Atlantic..

Sounds like a good plan.....I have no experience with other gasser kits. The HeliBug is my first gasser. It was a two bladed Chaos600 originally set up in my JayHawk. I was so happy with the performance of this gasser and the options that this kit gave me to run a lowered headspeed for multiblade operations. I could not resist getting another setup. I was having a blast flying the two blade setup to practice sport and scale flying and was always on the lookout for something to put it into. My friend Erben made me an offer (I could not refuse)on a Vario UH-1 #1100 kit made for the Fox mechanics. I brought the box home and placed the mechanics next to it...........now I am half way through completing this build. This build like all my building projects have never been straight forward...and like you and many others that I have seen on this forum that this is part of the hobby that is so enjoyable!
Thanks

Sorry if I was not clear, the UH-1kit is made for the SkyFox but I am placing my 600 Chaos Helibug mechanics in it. I plan on using Dr.Tims flexcable for the tail drive. I will post some pictures later.
Thanks
