The rest of the build…

After installing the PEM nuts, it was time to install the fuel tank. I looked at the overflow nipple and main fuel line wondering how I was getting those to pass through the frame. The tank is not that flexible, so I couldn’t press in on the tank to make the overflow nipple slip under the frame opening. So I tried twisting the tank in…and it worked! It slipped in very easy…now good luck with getting it out should the need arise! I wire-tied the vent line close...

Happy April Fools Day!...Saying good-bye to my Trex 700N!



Setting the stage…

I made the decision to convert my Trex 700N to gas, a Trex 700G! I picked the HeliXheli conversion kit as the gas conversion platform. I have the Hanson RC300 3D Max motor with the Century V2 pipe. I will be using the Futaba GV-1 governor and RC stator Gator. Running the “show”, is the AR7200BX driving 3 MKS HBLS950 cyclics, HBLS980 tail servo, and a Savox SC-1268sg servo for...

Special addition!

I received a phone call from Dan wanting me to test fly their team project airplane. Yep...once again The Northen ILLinois University (NIU) Engineering students built another experimental aircraft. This year they decided to go with an electric motor and a simple aircraft design. They modeled it after the Sig Cadet, but is looks more like a C130 transport. There building skills are improving and I gave them thumbs up for their design and improved building technique....

Can you believe this?...this month is almost over! Ten more days!

Agile 7.2 As it turned out, it was a good thing Bob called as I forgot about finding a place to mount the LiPo battery for the electronics. I tried to mount the LiPo pack up front, like the manual shows, but the pack is too long and the canopy hangs up on it. There is a plate at the rear under the boom that is an alternative location, so I installed it there. I had to remove the plate to remove the coating on the plate…so...

Come on warmer weather!!! I am so tired of the cold...

Agile 7.2 build So I put Bob’s heli aside as I was waiting for a replacement tail output shaft, and started in on my new Agile 7.2 electric heli. This is one interesting heli, to say the least. At first glance, it looks as if there’s a coating on the carbon fiber, a wax coating? All the metal parts are machined nice and shiny or they’re anodized. It seems there are a lot of smaller baggies of screws, washers, grub screws, and...
