I have been working on building a Baron 50 like the first helicopter I had in the mid 80's. It has taken me several years to collect all the correct parts. OS 50 FSR-H, Kalt muffler, K1sb head, speed up tail drive. I have the original JR 100 gyro that I used, but they never worked very well so I am using a JR 120 gyro in this heli.Instead of using the JR Century VII radio I am using my JR 12X with Spektrum reciever.I did install a Century VII reciever with dummy wires though. Still working on the molds to make a new canopy.

Canopy molds
Here is the canopy that needed some repairs to be able to make the molds. One of the mounting hole dimples was broken away. I used silicone to make a mold of the remaining one, then stuck it to the missing side. Then I filled it with epoxy / micro balloons backed with cloth. turned out really well.

Test flight
First few flights went great. It flew better than then the original back in the day. Flying the mechanical gyro brings back a lot of memories. The tail is always waging back and forth. The pic with out the canopy is the new rebuild. The other pics are from 30 years ago.
