Dry run on the retracts. I used a microswitch to delay the doors operating til the gear is tucked away. Its not exactly how it works on the full-size, but close enough. Doors are on a separate servo and a servo slowing unit was used to slow the mains to a realistic looking speed.

I've been wanting to build an S76 for a long time but just can't find a fuselage anywhere. Started looking into building a plug for a 600 size, then either look for someone to make a mold or do that myself as well. I was trying to figure out how I would make the rear retracts but seeing yours makes it look a lot less complex. Ingenious. Can't wait to see the final result.

Yeah its a rare find in a 600 or 700 size and there are still a few of the big scalejet fuses that pop up occasionally but be prepared to pay a good sum for those. i also have a 600 size that i will copy some day when i gewt the time. i need to learn that fiberglass molding stuff too and have done a few smaller projects with great success. working my way up to that fuselage.
as for the one i am building, its coming along but its been on the back burner for now while i work on the agusta 109, one of 5 helis i am currently and simultaneously building.

Test flights continue on the S76. more stuff to adjust with each flight. finally got some shots with the gear up and for me that is the best part, seeing what i designed myself in action and working like a charm. Video to follow.
