Nice looking Seaking... it looks good in the videos, but it seems the tail is a bit "loose"?? What type tail drive are you using??

RC Japan is where I heard people were getting Hirobo parts... not sure if they have what you need, but might be worth looking into them..

Good Luck

Ady, How I fixed that problem, I just copied the plastic lever on aluminum and made a few for I have a few of Hirobo tail gear boxes. This way I'm not worried about losing the tail or having the lever break, FYI.

thanks for the parts links , the tail was sloppie , lots of that i found was due to the very flexie snake controlling it , if you look at the garden hover video , you`ll see about half way thru , me banging the tail with the stick , and now i have put a better servo in the rear and up`d the tail speed , hacker motor thru wire drive , she held alot lot lot better ,time will tell when she flys in circuits , making the arm outta ali is a brilliant idea , thank you

Good Idea
Yes making the arm metal was a good idea!!!
I had foregotten that you had mentioned the separate motor for the tail drive.. it looks as if you are getting it dialed in..
Do you run a separate battery and esc for the tail motor...
I am thinking of trying this on my next project..
Looking forward to seeing your full flight video..

Thanks, Stan

Yes, I did build this heli - but I sold it (and immediately regretted it) some years ago. The rivets alone took me 6 weeks! Sorry to hear you are having tail control problems - when I sold it, it had Graupner mechanics and the tail was wire-driven through a 45 degree gearbox. How long have you owned it Ady? I see the doors are missing - is that a temporary thing while you trim the heli up? Nice to see that it is still flying though.

well hello there , i`ve owned the seaking around 6 weeks , and this very week i sorted the tail , with a BK goblin 500 cyclic servo at the rear and 7000 on the tail on a castle gov , the tail is perfect , tried several tail wheel landings in the wind and she held a treat . i removed the graupner mechs and have fitted rex 700v2 inside , with the latest head and red dampeners , shes lovely in the air , can see what ya mean about the rivetts , nice to hear from ya

Oh and by the way - it is not a Century Sea King - not sure who made the fuselage (think it came from the Sussex Model Centre).
I bought the fuselage from a chap called Wayne in Cardiff, and it took me a few months to get all the mechanics sorted - I had to get an engineer friend to make a longer tail drive shaft so that I didn't have to hack the tail fin off.
It is a lovely heli - you don't see many Sea Kings, which is why I bought it in the first place. The Graupner mechanics meant it was a little tail-heavy, and I had to put quite a bit of ballast in the nose. Made it fly ok, but with all the ballast was a little under-powered. My intention was to upgrade to a 90 motor, and fit a 5-blade head to it. Honestly wish I had kept it now!

Hi Ady,

Looks good. I have had the Funky Seaking via Century for quite a few years and gave up on it when the recommended mechanics, Century Predator didn't work. I have recently bought an Align 700N which once I strip it down will go into the fuselage. Hopefully it would take me as many years now to get it finished

Regards

Bob

Great flight, took my SK out last weekend, Align 700N insode but got problems with the tail holding. Because of the size of the hole in the rotor gear I put am aign 600 tail rotor gear box on. Not sure if that is causing the problem, had a crash on maiden flight and lost the sponsons. How is your main undercarraige held on please?
