Friends,

Just want to share with you a new project coming to me in a few months. This is the AH-1Z Cobra Viper that I commissioned my good friend Romano from Chile to build me one.
As you might know Romano is a Master builder! Romano would be providing me and ARF version of the AH-1Z Cobra Viper ready for Vario electric mechanics. I would build my mechanics and do all the fun part for the installation.
This is going to be a 4 blade head system for main and tail system and it’s my intent to have it ready for HSM 2013. A few of us would be bringing some serious military ships for HSM 2013 and I can’t wait for the videos we will make.
This is a traditional Vario Cobra modified for the AH-1Z Cobra Viper version.

Enjoy,

Gonzalo

AH-1Z Viper
Now, that will be one fantastic ship! If the build quality is anything like your Lama, it should be awesome. I can't wait to see the progress.

That's one nice looking project there. I have seen a few of these Vopers done and they really are impressive when fully detailed out. Enjoy.

A few updates of the Awesome work Romano is doing in my upcoming Cobra-Viper..... noooo I am not getting lazy.... too much work at the corporate life plus I am building another jet :laugh:

The TADS and gun will work via a servos and the electronic board that i am programing using Arduino..... lots of fun there.

Romano I will be ordering all the mechanics and electronics this week and once here I will put them togheter quite fast.... so keep moving on your end

Enjoy,

Gonzalo

AH-1Z Viper
The zulu Cobra is my favorite Cobra variant. If this build is anything like your Lama, it will look extraordinary. Keep the pictures coming.

Looks great bud! I like the way you moved the servos aft to clear up cabin space. Great job! I get to see this one up close at HSM in a couple months.
