Yep, going to give it the old school try..

Stainless steel torque tube is already fabbed up along with a carbon fiber boom.

Waiting for the new head to be delivered and test it out before ordering up the blades.

Hopefully by the New Year will test spooling it up.

Payload is considerably lighter than most AP rigs, a pair of small cameras, one for video the other for stills.
Target AUW should be under 16 lbs.

The next question would be ..Why build a 900 for such a light payload.
Answer...
Why not? Need a winter project, besides how many home grown 900E's are around?

Hey nightflyr,

I never learned what the sizing criteria are for helis... How do you know what size of blades/boom constitutes a 900 size heli?

Boom is easy...

As long as you clear your main blades from your tail blades your good to go.

As to blades.. that is a gray area..

700 class can run 680, 690, 700, 710, 713, 720

As to 800 classI think there is a 790 blade set, 800's, 810's, 820's and I believe 830's

900 class would start @ 880's and up
