Thanks guys,

Joe F, he a good egg. I let him fly my full scale. Ha.

Made some more fuse parts. The engine cowl and TGB fairing. The cockpit cowl and aft dog house and the last two main fuse pieces to make. Dragon Plate will be here today. Hopefully work does not call this weekend and I can get moving on the structure.

Thanks Don,

I hope to have it flying long before Dalton. I am hoping to get it in the air by late April/May.

I have just about everything to get it in the air less a few minor items.

Man, that has to be a super cool feeling knowing that you built the entire heli. I have a couple of ideas for a pod & boom that I may try to mold some day.
Keep up the great work!

Ron

I didn't crash. I just ran out of airspeed, altitude, and ideas all at the same time!

UIH,

Yea, its pretty cool feeling watching it come together knowing I started from a block of foam.

It is beginning to look like something. Pressing on with more fuse parts today.

UIH,

UIH!!!,

S-67 Blackhawk Fuse # 1

I pulled the aft dog house fairing this morning. This completes all of the main fuse parts.

This has been a fantastic journey to this point.

UIH,

Butch

I'm probably going to get lumped up for this but,,,,, Why does the fuse come out grey and looking like it is already finished?

UIH,

Now that the main parts for the fuse are finished up the fun is about to begin. The next step is making templates for the structure.

I use the heavy construction board 5 pack from Michael's for like $4 to cut and fit each bulkhead before transferring it to the Dragon Plate. The 2 mm Dragon plate with birch core cuts and works pretty easy. I chose the matt finish because it look cool.

Frames 3-4 and 5 will support the mechanics. Frame 3 will support the landing gear and frame 4 will support the spar for the wings. The battery's will be supported between frames 1 and 3. I have room for 4-5000 6S packs but it is a tight fit. I should be able to fly with 2 packs but have the room for more just in case.

The most forward batteries will sit under the aft cockpit seat and the aft battery's will sit forward of frame 3.

I have to lay up the sponsons so I can fit them to the gear and spar supports. Once that is complete I will cut and fit the structure then get it bonded in.

UIH,

B

Evan,

The gray is like a gel-coat. It is epoxy resin mixed with a high density filler and a gray pigment.

That mixture is brushed and or rolled on to the mold surface and allowed to tack before the glass is laid down.

Charlie,

Its carbon fiber laminate with a birch ply core. I use the 2mm thick stuff. Its about half the thickness of 1/8 birch ply and about twice as strong for roughly the same weight. One side has a protective sheet for working and I covered the open side with blue masking tape to draw on.

Here a link.

They have all kinds of cool stuff.

Awesome.

I am so lucky to be part of the scale community at this time and witnessing the birth of this masterpiece by a master builder.

Thanks for sharing this build with us.
