Hello fellas, Im im getting ready to start building a (semi scale heli) here in the nex couple of months but I need help! my mechanics are t-rex 700fbl nitro, and I going to set the agusta 109 body on it from thunder tiger. I would love to put a 4 blade head on this beast, but have no idea what im getting my self into. my only other scale heli is a old school raptor v2 with a md530 body lol. if any of you guys ave any input id love to hear from you thanks.

Well being new to muilty rotor head I would suggest the plug and play head from either RCA,or Just scale. So it will go on the ur main shaft Noproblem and as long as ur swash plate has 4 balls for the links to connect to u should be good to go, that head dosent need to be adjusted for phazing it already taken care of. U will need to make sure ur links measure the same so that ur tracking is rite. And depending on ur FBL controller if u need to make other ajustment to fine tune that heli. But most important is scale head do not like a high head speed so if ur planning on doing this figure out what head speed ur comfortable flying at? With a 700 size 4 bladed head u want to think of around 1300-1500 max on ur headspeed. And if u do ur research rite to find the best gearing combo that will not only give u the headspeed but also keep ur ur motor cool during flight.

scale head!
awesome info on that. I had no idea the facts on head speed when it comes to multiblade, and well Im not a professional at setting up helis this will bring quite a challange to me lol. Like I mentioned I will be using the t rex 700 nitro Im not a huge fan of electric helis planes etc... I bought this heli from a guy here on RR, it seems to be pretty decked out as well as a V bar system, which again I have no clue how to set them up. Just fyi my current heli is a raptor 50 with a 601 gyro throttle jockey and flybar lol so im pretty old school, although my raptor has over 800 flights on it, she still flies awesome. But back to scale basics I will do my research on gear ratios and look into those head units you mentioned. thanks a million for your response.

RC Rescue Helicopter:

Watch at YouTube

noproblem glad ti see another new scaler join the fun! But good thing is ur runnimg nitro so u.car run astraight throttle curve so u can keep the head speed u want. For example Im run a.scale head on a raptor 50 nitro and just using the radio throttle curve I fly in
Idle 1 and my curve is 65% straight across so im really only using the collective most of the time. And it gives me a nice 1400 headspeed and on a full tank ican fly for 28 mins.here a video of my nitro acale bird with a.scale head ans the throttle running 65% straight throttle curve.

Invest in a Digital pitch gauge,, the. Set up is easy peasy and your tracking will be dead on.

RCA is RC aerodyne in Seattle washington( website is scaleflying.com) and just scale is in Australia, Ron a member on here his screen name is bell222 he owns the shop and a really great guy to so business with and has a large selection. Justscale.co.nz is that web site and under either 600/700 size heads just look for the plug and play ones.

Main bades?
Awesome guys how about when it comes to main blades I have seen a few companies that offer them but not to many. What size blades would I want to run I hear talk about cord whiths and different style tips etc..

Its all up to u. But when ur talking about more then 2 blades u cant stay the same size as a 700! So for example if ur running a 700 size blades x4 the torque on 4 700mm blades would be so much ur tail will never hold! Normally u would run some 105mm tail blades on a two bladed head but with the torque of 4 the smallest u could get away with is 130-150mm blades to hold the tail or install a 4 bladed tail rotor with 105mm. But when ur talking about scale heads u want to go smaller in size with the blades so for a 700 I would go with a set of 660mm blades. A 600 size I would use 550 but if u can find a set of thin core blades like spin blades or funkeys scale blades then u can go little bigger because the thinner blades dont have as much load to them as a set of thin core blades. U can use standard blades but just go smaller so the loadung wont be so high because for a thick core blade. Stay with in 630- 660 mm for the blades and u can use anykind. But remember with adding 4 blades increase the size of ur tail blades to hold the tail strong under any flying conditions. As for the tail blades just get a set of SAB 800 size tail blades and you'll be happy.

The head is from audacity models and I love it. It has alittle over 540 flights and still kicking strong. That head is so well built I really didnt need to install a FBL gyros on it it really flew like a flybar head and the price was great too it was only 199.99

Flybarless systems whats the deal? lol
I see some of you guys run flb systems and some of you guys dont? is it better to use one? if I dont use one just simply run a tail gyro and set up the head mechanically? The mechanics I got T-rex 700 came with a V-Bar system not sure what to do nor how to program it lol. Im sure I can figure it out. I dont car to do aerobatics with this heli, but my raptor 50 scale has a 601 gyro and throttle jockey I originally set this heli up for 3d flying and did pretty good in its time, so when I threw the scale body on it, she flew bad ass.

Audacity head
The audacity head looks cool, and I like the price but I dont see one for a 12mm shaft. So I think the RCA would be my best bet on a 4 blade.

Well im sorry the audacity head is for a 600 size. And even going with thin core blades and keeping them 700mm x4 is going to be to much gor yhe tail to hold. So remember if u eithere put a 4 bladed tail or go smaller on or main blades. And with a scale head u will find urself keeping tge stick pushed forward to keep it flying in FF but a FBL will hold it for u much better that it feels like it flying on rails. And one more thing with a V-bar if ur 2bladed head is flying perfect u can install a plug&play head and it will fly the same as long as ur throws are not to extreme.
