View Full Version : Zoom versus the trampoline :)

07-23-2004, 12:51 AM
Got some nice weather today at my house and coerced my Gf into taking some shots. Played around the house with the zoom. Bounced on the trampoline, blew the pine needles out of the garage and trimmed the hedge.

The thing is flying great with the Axi and belt drive, I was having a blast with it today flying and shooting some autos!

Falcon, Hubdave over on Rcgroups makes the belt drive. He is a super nice guy and very helpful.

Hotshot Charlie- It is a stock airframe with:
axi 2208/20 18t pinion
csm 560 micro (401 or 240 work as good or better)
TP 1320 gen 2 10C packs
Daves Belt drive

I think that is it, if you have any more ?'s feel free to PM me or ask here.

Good Luck!

Hey Tabbytabb,

Thanks for the info. Is "hubdave" where I would get the belt drive from? What is the cost and is it worth it? Thanks. (I think I see a Zoom in my future!)

Charlie, the belt drive Kit is 75 I believe. It is definately worth it in my opinion, no more stipped tail gears to work on, no tail problems ever!

I tipped over 2 autos yesterday that everything was fine. You also get to fly off the grass and onto the grass with no worry of stripping gears.

the belt drive is super smooth and quiet also, runs much smoother then the torque tube it comes with stock.

Hope that helps

Thanks Aaron, it is a fun little heli. I have been a bit preoccupied with my Joker for the last few days so no new zoom pics.

Will try and get some more soon. It has been really nice here this summer, wind usually dies down around 5 so i can burn a few packs at night after work.

Thanks for the comments!
