Sure love this hobby......even when you don't have the time to physically work on your models,you can still work on them in your mind.....well that's how it is for me anyway.I am still not completely satisfied with my navigation lights setup.But that will come together later.One thing that stuck in my mind was that before I started this project, I made a sling load hook and release device for my pod and boom setup and always wanted to see it on my Huey. But the device looked a bit raw and it needed some work to be worthy for that task....so I think I got something that's almost done. Until then, here are some pictures of the original device in use.....enjoy.

I will follow this project closely. I wanted to do a hook on my 500...
Now I have a "few" 600s laying arround and this became even more interesting...

Btw you are spoiled with the scenery at your "flying field"...

Hey Gh,
Unfortunately my setup uses the RC zenoah engine for support but it may spark a few ideas of your own to make it fit your birds.
And yes, I am always reminded of the island beauty here.....Thanks

Cool! Helikid on SRCH has a bambi bucket that he sells, it's very nicely made. Just a heads up: If you want to avoid wearing through the "T" fittings on the skid tubes, you can just run a bead of silicone on the bottom of each fitting. That way you can ditch the rubber grommets. It lasts quite a while and keeps you from wearing the plastic.

All helis and planes have an expiration date stamped on them...you only find it after you crash!!

You can easily make a more realistic cargo hook. Here is what I did:

Thanks FlyingHuey,
My good friend Brian has a sharp eye for things like that. He was a Huey pilot in his first life.

Thanks Phoinix,
I will try and open that link on a computer, I am not able to access it on my iPad.

I have not been able to go to the field for a while because I guess it was my turn to get sick, my work hours did not help and also the weather did not agree on my days off.Things like this happen.But hopefully my good friend Brian and I will be able to get some pictures this weekend...if weather permits.

Well...at least I got to work on something. That was a great suggestion from Barry to save the plastic on my landing gear and also get away from the rubber grommets. I just added a little to come up with skid shoes(version one).

I have a question is how the main gear connect to the tail gear box axle?Because the mechanic is not Vario original so the angle it's not fit the fuselage.

Hi Kimo,
I used the connectors from the RCAERODYNE "Flex Cable UH 60(600 Size) system...$49.95 and I also used the "Flex cable" sold by Starwood Scale Models.com...$129.00.

If you look back on this thread post #4 and #18, you will see the set up I used to make it work.

Thanks for asking...

Hi Kimo,
My model does not use an onboard starter. I top start it with an electric starter.

RCheli808, any particular reason why you chose not to use the RCA flex cable? It appears to have a double lay and seems to be pretty well built. The reason I ask is due to the fact I have the RCA UH 60 flex drive kit and plan to use it on a 600 size ec145 V1 (designed for belt drive).
