Hi All

I have just picked up one of these fuselages. I am struggling to find any build info on it. Does anyone have any tips and advice?

Thanks

Barry did a build on one of these along with a Vario Huey. You can read the thread from the start but I believe he began detailing the 800 size UH-1 build on page 6.

Yeah, I built one of these. Look through the old build docs and you'll find my build thread. There's also a lot of pics in my gallery. One word of advice, don't use the belt drive tail. Use a flex drive or torque tube with a 47 degree gear box.

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

Mine came with A Vario cranked tail. Where could I get a flex or torque tube drive for one of these? Stuff like that is hard to find in Aus.

You can make your own cable drive using “Octura” brand boat parts and 6mm cable...

Hey guys , I have a second hand smartmodel 800 size Huey that build has been started as far as wood frame partially fitted and 600 TRex fbl to fit in it , just wondering if I need to run a 700 head to match the size of the model , if not is there a longer main shaft to make the head higher cos none in this particular kit ....? Has anybody got more in depth info on this model like manual or where ply frame parts are fitted and the reliability of the stock tail drive system in the kit ...
Came with a Scorpion 4035 450 KV motor or does it need a more powerful one I need to find a pinion for it, as Antsis said not much about this model and what parts and where to get them here in Australia ...
Cheers....
