When I flew in Afghanistan they had these helis which we supported some they would land on some crazy pentacles re-supplying their OPs, lots of power. Never seen an rc onehttps://www.youtube.com/channel/UCE_rywpdgBAxA8bHVCw3VQQ

Petr,
do you have any pictures of the winch and generator on the GSU. Also, what sort of cockpit will fir your model. I am going to print these parts up on my 3D printer and will be making this cockpit.

Quick update. All the pins to locate the doghouse are in and a multitude of magnets secures everything in place. The rotor head is wrong but thrown n the top of the main shaft for looks

I am waiting for the tail boom to set, and busy spending millions buying electronics worthy of this model.

They are great models without a doubt, but I have a problem.

I am in a wheelchair and use one hand to drive it, so I have to be able to pick the model up and carry it with one hand.

I cant move my Seasprite because of the torpedo or MAD sensor hanging off the side and the wheels underneath, so having learned that lesson, KISS and no junk hanging off the side.

This is my latest thought on a color scheme

This one is a freshly painted newer one which will do as my subject for colors, but its a later version which is different from mine

sorry no pun intended...

this is a good looking scheme. Does it require a lot of modification to make it look right?

Not really, the upper one is a Mil 17 which is the export version of the 8 so there are minor additions but no changes to the basic shape. Its just nice to see what the actual color is before it got all dirty from the exhaust.Peter Wales

Peter, sorry I'm traveling for next few months.
Cocpit on picture is basicaly correct. Let say, this is the very common/standart cocpit for Mi-8. Analog gauges, green dashboards (sometimes black for export). Some modifications are with bigger mid console.
You can't be wrong with it.

My favorite color scheme

Sort update, I decided to do the mechanics the easy way and ordered the full kit from them. It will be here some time next week, so I am on my CAD system designing a few extras until it arrives.

So far I have done a set of turbine blades to go in the inlets and a generator housing to go in APU inlet. The winch, which seems to be on all Mi-8's is todays project

I still have to decide how I am going to attach the fin cover to the rear to make it removable without having screws showing

I visited the website, their pricing is reasonable for that size heli. They don't say how long before the gearbox and TT will be ready. It looks to be a simple and straight forward build. And the fact that you can use Goblin mech's is awesome.
Peter, are you beefing up the structure around the landing gear mounting points? The nose wheel looks like it needs more support... well, the whole gear front and back looks like it could use it.

Hi Stan,
the whole doghouse it held on with mega magnets and pins. The problem with the tail cover is that the cover itself is very thin. Nowhere to put a magnet of any size. I have a feeling a very tiny blob of PFM will hold it in place and be removable easily. Thats the best I can come up with right now.

Dennis, the landing gear needs no beefing up. It is securely bolted to 4mm Plywood at both front and rear. Wait until you see it next month.

When the mechanics set will be ready depends on 3 things.
1) they have to get a delivery of blades, and come to think of it so do I!
2) They have to wait for some reasonable weather for testing
3) They need to run exhaustive tests on the reliability of all the parts.

Once they are happy, they will make them available, which is very responsible IMHO

I have managed to order a set on the basis that if anything goes wrong it's my problem and I will only report back to them. I guess I'm a beta tester as usual but instead of being forced into it by v@rio I am volunteering to do it.

So where do I get a 5 blade set of RH 840mm semis from which are scale looking?
