I've scratch built my own head, tr, and mechanics as well. It's the most enjoyable part of the hobby. At least with The Vbar, the wobble can be too low of electronic gain. It can also be too stiff of mechanical dampening for the head speed.
Indeed make parts form scratch is a pleasure, even better when work rsrsr

The V-Bar did not working for me, maybe because is second hand unit, the old black case 4.0

I want to try the Micro Beast !.
Wow, truly amazing! I'm going to continue to watch and see how it goes!!!
YOU ARE WELCOME !

Manuel.
Since the 3G is not able to correct the phasing electronically, it would make sense that the heli would be bobbing all over the place and quite a handful to fly.
The only issue is the stiff feel on the control, besides that is really stable even with moderate wind.

I thinked about the servo option to control the phasing but not is possible with this head.

All in all the phasing is only 10º out of the ideal, but I don't want to loose the scale appearence working on the links !.
that was scary to say the least, if that had been me I would be needing a fibreglass repair kit by now! Glad you got it down in one piece and you know what needs done.
Guys...was not so bad, trust me.
I was in total control all the time, I know is far from perfect, but i'm still working on it !.

Third test...almost there

This time improved the Align 3G gains and tail control.

In this flight test i'm runnin the main motor in 8S, up to 5 minutes flight time.

The Fenestron run in 4S.

After this I did a new TX setup, now the Tail curve is flat. Will test this tomorrow !.

As well I have two new motors to test for the Fenestron..will see

There is no doubt that it is getting better with each flight. As well, I got to the bottom of the issues I was having with the Airwolf. Keep up the good work.

Hy guys,

to busy working in the BT !

The cockpit almost ready, improving pilot movements.

Watch at YouTube

The mods I did in the 600s frames serves to the new Gazelle, in fact I think make full cockpit in the Gazelle is easier than the BT.

I NEED A TIP IN HOW TO MODIFY THE MP4 TO PLAY VIDEOS AFTER POWER UP ...SOMEBODY CAN HELP ME ON THAT...PLEASEEEEE !!!

G'day Manuel,
Firstly "very nice job" -
Can you tell me what battery configuration you are using - and where do you put them? I am running 3x3Sx5000 mains (9S)- the mains and the 4S fan batteries take up a lot of space. Some go under the removable cabin floor and some stack up at the rear of the cabin. With your new customisation, things must get pretty tight - where do you put you batteries?

Regards,
Jim

Nice question Jim !.

The receiver battery LiPo 7,4 volts/4000maH is under the cockpit floor.

The Fenestron battery 14,8volts/3000maH is in the belly, I opened the rear of the belly ( the flight recorder, remember the movie).
But...if is needed to correct CG I can put this in the front side of the cockpit ( under the removable fornt part), there is room for that.

The main batteries, 2 X 4S/5000maH located in each side of the frame, still need to make a better fixing way.

I flew the heli with extra weight in an total of 8,5 kilograms, even with 600mm blades of my AS350 seems OK !.

Soon as I finish, i'm painting right now, will post more details of the mechanics.

Manuel.

Manuel,

I remember when you modded the heli for the Gatling gun and I thought you had done a great job on it but now with all of the controls slaved through the pilot, FANTASTIC!

Looking forwards to seeing it back together again and in the air (knowing you, it won't be long until it is!)

Great Job.

Amazing!!!
Freekin fantastic!!!!
But I think Barry said it best!!!

I watched all 3 of the flight tests and am wondering if you are running a flat line on your main head like you do on the tail motor... if not, I would highly suggest that you either use the flat line or governor mode on your ESC... with this change, I think you will be just about finished with the test hop's...It is looking much beeter...

You already have an amazing machine and with the pilots and controls moving as they should, you will have aa complete show stopper!!!
Excellent job!!!

Hi Guys...Thanks for the comments

I really enjoy the cockpit part, is time consuming but at the end is
fun to see working.

Hi Stan,

Yess...indeed i'm not using a flat line or governor, basically I prefer not to use.

But in this case I agree can be better, i'm just waiting for a new tail belt and new drive gear before fly again.

Soon as finish the painting and details will test the Castle 80 HV II governor mode. I have no experience with this , so I will need your help with a few tips !

Dirt Biter at this moment i'm doing the primer in the fuselage, Saturday and Sunday the rivets, Monday the Blue and Black paints... till next weekend this BT will be ready ( I hope ! )

Glad To Help Out...
I would be glad to help you set up the governor or a flat line...
Either will do just fine...
Just to give you some idea, to set up the ESC, all you need to do is hook it up to the your laptop and go in and set the gearing and motor info, then set the desired HS and it will tell you if it is atainable with your set up...

On the flat line, I just fly the heli as you have been, and see exactly the throttle stick position that gives you the desired HS, then I set my idle up 2 with that setting staight across.. and with the clutch that you have onboard along with the slow spool up that is available in the ESC, you will have no problem with bringing it up to RPM on the ground and then when you are flying it, you will only be flying the pitch... the HS will stay constant throughout the flight...
Let me know when you are ready to set it up and I will give you more detail...
Looking forward to seeing this in finish paint and ready to go...

Thanks for sharing,
Stan
