Finally finished my AS350 Eurocopter 700 Series
Finally after waiting on a replacement part I broke and the weather to break I was finally able to maiden my new AS350 Air Zermatt I've been waiting patiently to fly for the past few months. This is my biggest scale helicopter to date and my first big maiden of the season so forgive my shaky flying... Enjoy

Thanks Wrongler
Here are a few interior shots
It was my first time painting seats and using a flocking kit. Didn't turn out half bad...

Here is my estimate:
Electronics and setting up 6hr
Decals, body accents, painting skids, water transfer decals, and interior 4hrs
Final Assembly and misc 2hrs

I know my buddy went from start of build to flying in under 5hrs but I wanted to take my time. At the start of the build I horsed the motor pulley and broke off the guide lip so after that I decided to take it easy and slow down.

Thanks Stan!
The snow is finally gone but still cold...
They say spring is here but temps keep bouncing back and forth from cold to luke warm lol.

I took these pics a few weeks ago at our last snowfall. The Air Zeermatt is a rescue/sight seeing Eurocopter from the Swiss Alps so I took a few "global correct" pictures

Looks great! I maidened my AS350 mechs today, will be putting them back in the fuse soon. I like where you stashed the lipos. How much nose weight did it need with the lipos that far aft?

Realy nice job on the heli. Really enjoyed the photo's of the interior. Need more information on the seats. How was it applied? What was used to paint the seats and what and where did the flocking kit come from? I have no idea where to even start to look for something like that.

I had never heard of flocking before either.
I cracked the side of the seat and I knew epoxy would show. Went upmto my local hobby stire to look for advice and they sold me the flocking dust and paint. I used testors modeling paint and sprinkled on the valor flocking dusk. Let it dry and brushed off the access to give it a velvet soft interior look. I didn't use glue I just resorted to the paint to adhere it. Would have come out much better if I did some research first. Here is an awesome link I just found for ya.

Barry I added about 700g of weight in the nose as well as hard epoxying the floor of the bottom fuselage with a center spare to add strength and weight. The bird in all weighs in around 18 pounds.

Video isn't the best I had my phone on a tripod and the sun glare messed with the video image.
This is actually the first full test flight before the maiden at the field in the video above.

Not too bad. That's less than the weight of 1 6S 5000mah lipo
