Fertiliser Spreader Bucket
Time to try something different....a working spreader bucket....

Video below of a typical spreader bucket here in New Zealand.

Watch at YouTube

Progress so far using a plastic funnel and modified Predator Gas caged cooling fan for the spinner.

Fertiliser Spreader Bucket
Hi Emile

Well its been fun using my little Mill/Drill/lathe for a lot of this as I've hardly used it since buying it a good 15 years ago, I think it probably wonders what hit it as I've been using all three of its functions , and it should be fun getting the bucket to work with at least some degree of realism
Drive will be a KDA22/15M motor

Nice work on the parts, the fling wheel is really impressive.
Using a real chopper to spread fertilizer seems really expensive.
.
When you get it finished you can use it to fertilize your yard while having fun.
Keep us posted with pictures and a vid when done.
I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

Helicopter Bucket Spreading
Cheers, re Helicopter bucket spreading.....here in New Zealand, we have extensive steep farming terrain that requires regular fertiliser application.
While much of it is done with fixed wing aircraft, there are many situations in farming here where fixed wing is not practical due to terrain, size of block, type of fertiliser mix to be applied and many other factors. The bucket is also used to sow out smaller complex blocks with seed for a more accurate cover.
It is actually a very versatile and common part of agricultural aviation here in New Zealand.

Helicopter Bucket Spreading
Hi Emile, Plenty of examples on the net, I just wanted to show some example of whats its all about here in New Zealand, as aerial application is somewhat unique here....in fact on the fixed wing front we have specialised aircraft specifically developed over the years for broadcast aerial fertiliser spreading 2 Ton at a time, sowing up to 1000tons on some larger jobs.
.....but I wont post a pic or video of that here eh

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

Great flying! How much weight is that holding?

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

weight
Hi Cobieg, approx 1.75kg AUW including net etc worked out about the right weight for it to fly nice...too light and it fluffs about too much and heavier....well it just runs the risk of letting the smoke out of the ESC eh....
I have lifted 3kg however on the strop very briefly for an ESC logging check for amp draw.....it actually wasn't too bad even on a 6S set up, but there is no need to be lifting any more than needed.
I did that test to determine what is reasonable for what is fast becoming known as the "cheese" bucket (cause I told Mike that good things take time LOL) This being the working "fertiliser spreader bucket project" earlier in the thread that I will get to eventually

Litter bucket
Well done if you weight it well it will be ok to fly with and will stay well below the heli I did a fly around with a litter bucket with the rappy 90 and used fishing wire and used a 2 oz sinkers to try flying with It was ok , the heavier or weighted right you don't have to worry about where the thing is , and most important hook it just aft of the mast so it counteracts the drag ,
