Heli-Log 3:11:12

Posted 03-11-2012 at 05:43 PM by rcnut

Its hard to believe this Thursday marks the half way through March! Talking about time flying by! Yea...well the weather is getting better out. The weatherman said we will be in the mid 70's by Wednesday. A bit too fast, but I'll take it.

I received the ball link sizing tool in the mail. Popped it into the link and a couple of turns, now the link fits the ball better and doesn't have that much drag. After fixing the warped canopy, I installed it on the heli and it looked funny. So...

Heli-Log 2:29:2012

Posted 02-29-2012 at 09:30 AM by rcnut

Here it is! The last day of February…

Progress on my 6HV is a bit slow. Ironed out a location for the remote receiver (satellite), power requirements (wanted to fill the remaining plugs on the AR7200BX), addressed the tail linkage and tight ball links, and the rest of the main programming in the Beast X.

I decided to mount the remote receiver under the battery tray at the very front. Then I routed the wire along the outside of the frame, thinking of routing it on the...

Wren 44 Turbines and Multi Rotors

Posted 02-26-2012 at 07:28 AM by lperagallo

It's been a long time since my last blog generally because there hasn't been much excitement going on.
This fall WREN turbines announced Kero start for their Wren 44 turbine. Ron Ballard of Wren USA invited Chris Bergen and me to his shop in Decatur Indiana to be the first to convert our Wren 44 helicopter turbines. Needless to say I jumped on the chance. It is a relatively simple conversion and it works sweet. It does cost a bit as you need to change out the FADEC, fuel pump and install...

Heli-Log 2:24:2012

Posted 02-24-2012 at 11:03 AM by rcnut

Almost the weekend and nothing but snow! But in the meantime…the build is moving along on my new 6HV. Ordered (and received already) KBDD Blue Extreme Dampers, 96mm Extreme tail blades, and JR satellite DSMX receiver. After a little research, ah reading the fine print instructions, it states to use the optional receiver for heli’s over the 600 class size.

I disassembled the rotor head (found one of the o-rings had squeezed out of the head, it is nicely deformed now), removed the stock...
