EPIC MD-8 build
I will try to transfer my build thread from that other site to here, but basically it builds the exact same as what 6cuda6 has posted , except literally, you open the MD-8 boom parts bag(boom with torque tube already installed, boom supports, & tail blades), instead of using the 7 bag (you do need the hardware from the 7 bag though). Here's a pic of the final almost ready to maiden MD-8.

I am serious.....and don't call me Shirley.

Flew her around for five minutes at lunch today. Awesome heli! There is more blade noise than anything from the heli. Very quite! it was just a light flight checking things out in the undeveloped part of my neighborhood, but still a few houses around, so had to be easy for safety sake. d

Hello

What motor and pinion did you use?
Are you 12 or 14s?
Is it me or this time the ground was higher than last time??

I'm running a Scorpion HK5020-450 with a 13t pinion on 12s. I got in another easy flight the other day, and realized I will need more motor. It bogs a little easily. Now, for any kind of sport flying, its great with my, sort of low budget setup, but will not work for hard 3D, power wise. The heli is awesome, I just need a higher powered motor.I am serious.....and don't call me Shirley.

I will go for a 4530 450kv with 12t on 14S.
We will see but on the paper it should be quite good powerwise!

I will be playing with some 14s goodness as well.

Got just about everything I need at this point, just waiting on ESC to arrive!

I actually made some ESC adjustments, and it's better, but I still need more power, maybe 14s is in the future for mine.

Also, forgot to post here, but modified my canopy a little...
