Hey Stewart,
I know of one person who is ordering a V2 407 but I think he is ordering it in primer.

I now wish I had waited a little longer to order mine as maybe I could have bought a V2 which would be sweeet.

Angie said if I thin the herd there could be a 1/4 scale 407 waiting for me for retirement. but I also have another BIG military project in mind so we will see...

GOT A KEEPER!!!
Roy,
Sounds as if Angie is definetly a keeper.. reduce that fleet.. you will "SO" enjoy flying a 1/4 scale bird.. not only do they look awesome in the air, they are also awesome to fly..
They certainly beat up some air...
So how long till you join us retired "bums"!!?

Stewart that is a good looking paint scheme. I'd like to see it myself

Stan, I turn 62 next June and was planning on retiring then but this has been a rough year for us so not sure if it will happen as planned.
But knowing Angie as I do, she will probably buy me whatever I want anyway LOL

I have the V2 Bell 407 fuse in primer and it's very nice. I'll do a build thread on it some time down the road. Right now I'm super busy with a skunk works project and my big R22...

Roy, I have a little trick for making sure that the grub screw is located in the "sweet spot". I color in the divot on the shaft with red sharpie. Then I remove 1 grub screw from the hub (the one that locates in the divot). Line it up on the shaft looking for the red through the tapped hole. Run it in until it just locates in the divot, but not tight, then wiggle the hub on the shaft. You will know if you have the sweet spot when wiggling the hub it feels like there is a positive stop in either direction. Then tighten it down and you know that you're in the right location.

Thanks Barry! Just finished putting it back together but will check it again.
Better safe than sorry, right?

Btw, I was looking for that scale Huey head and can't find it for sale anywhere. Anyone you know sell it?

Thanks

They discontinued that head. It had a lot of problems. There's a new great looking huey head that should be on the market soon. I just need to find the website info again...

thanks Stan, yeah I have gotten into the workshop and am getting a few machines done. Mark, ive seen that rotorhead on a couple of machines and its nice looking, but I don't know if I would have chosen it for my 407. not that the century head I am using looks the part but that one doesn't seem to fit the look. some rotorheads look better on some machines than they do others and it seems "scale" rotorheads are emerging. theres a starflex for an Astar that looks great.
anyway that head is a work of art.

That head would look great on an S58. Mike Spinner had one on his Bell 429 at scale masters and it looked the part on that heli. Your 407 looks great with that paint scheme!

I was looking for a 407 cockpit but all I could find were Jet & Long Ranger versions. So I asked Ron (Bell222) if I sent a picture, could he see if the factory could do a custom 407 version. He sent me this today and that it should be on its way shortly. It's now available for anyone to purchase.

Thanks for the info Mark.

good to know a special order dash is available as I know there are at least three 407s being built in Police schemes so the dash is a little different from what you have.

Looking forward to seeing yours completed and in the air. Looking real good!

I think it's around $190 and you can get it from Ron at Just scale.

Roy (Heli143) came down to my place with his 407 and after some trouble shooting, we had it hovering nice and smooth again. He went home a happy camper
