Default Bad weather time pass ,,, new swash driver

Hey Lou and Keith
Here is what I came up with during the bad freezing rain days that I couldn't get out of the house .

It isn't exactly what I was thinking of as I didn't draw it up scale before starting and had to change it in the middle of production but it came out pretty good I think . atleast better than the 18 yr old Kavan swash driver I was using .. will tell more once I start flying it . This one looks really bulky and clunky to me ,, but at least solid and stable ,,which it is .

I am also trying to build the orginal idea ,, but taking the time to draw it out to scale first this time and make a pattern out of plywood first ...to see if it will really work and look any better .

That is almost exactly 100% what I had pictured in my head for this piece.

Looks clean! Far nicer than the first attempt that's for sure.

Larry,

I've got to be first on line for your prototype as I'm actually testing!

Mark, You'll just have to wait your turn and so will Ron.

Especially Ron......since he keeps rubbing our noses in that beautiful weather he has. I guess I can look at it this way, Ron has a better chance of having to spend money on parts then I do right now

Lou

Oh boy, Lou...testing, huh? Guess you're a bit behind. Did my testing 1 1/2 years ago. Just like Larry's swash driver better than most of the alternatives.
Though, I guess he can let you in on these. He'll just send me the nicer, Gen. ll version.

If I weren't lazy, I guess I could just get my butt on my mill and make my own, huh?

If I had a mill, I'd have already made one......NAH probably not

My set up isn't as manual like you early adopters with better piloting skills. I'm using the Skookum and hope to get out tomorrow to do more test flights. I have hovered in a limited space environment when it was windy and it did pretty good. I over controlled it as far as I was concerned. Being a bit nervous made my control awful. I hope to be able to do forward flight and if that's OK, maybe I'll try the 3D set up and see what it will do. It's supposed to get to 48 degrees, so I should be able to get a few flights in.

I'll also get a chance to test the new bird I just finished building. I did a test hover in my driveway on Saturday when it was 68 degrees with 30 MPH winds. It's my first eCCPM machine so I wasn't sure what to expect. It hovered fine, but I have no idea if my head speed is anywhere near where it should be.

Mark,

Maybe Larry can make one for me and one for you?

Lou

Ya know, Lou. Isn't it wonderful how we've taken to assigning Larry to do our bidding? Not presumptous of us at all, is it?

Mark,

I don't know how bad we are, but if it works, YEAH for us.

I spoke to Larry today and he is still working on another prototype. As I've said to Larry, I'm not very good fabricating anything. I'm OK with basic mechanics and electronics, but no good at creating something that would actually work from a block of aluminum

Lou

And notice how well Larry is not responding to your attempts of presumptous biddings !!!!!

Not all on my own will power ... that night after posting the pix ,,we had a really bad storm and the altra high wind and hard rain took its toll on the big maple tree next to our house and it dropped a limb on our electric line and internet cable line coming into the house .
The electric they had back on in 5 hours ....but the internet cable took 2 phone calls and 1 -1/2 days and a little finesse to get my router back up . So I guess I can not claim the afore mentioned over powering claim to self controlled resistance to the over powering presumptuos biddings
I also have no CNC that I am going to go into business with Chris .. these both took me 2 days of finger bleeding hand work with a hack saw , body /finish file , power sander and a hand drill . The pix make them look better than they really are .

Any how here is the slimer and more scale type proto 2 that I was really aiming for the first time around . It still isn't the scale look that I want for my Hirobo super cobra ....which is what this is headed for .
Enjoy

Well you can always send it my way, that way you can continue to perfect your scale version.

Oh Yeah, you could send me the original clunky one.

Lou

Yeah, if there wasn't some childish fighting, what fun would we have, right?

Second one does look good, Larry.

Well guys ,,, it was nice enough (40 degree and only 20 mph winds ) here today .. so I got in several flights in
But doing the preflight and post flight checks ... I suddenly remembered where I was on the flybarless GMP head that is going on the cobra ... and the scale swash followers that I had in my mind came from some where else as they were not what I was thinking about last fall when winter hit .

I also recieved my christmas present from my daughter in Ariz. today ( a book on the Bell Cobras ) and it shows the cobra's swash followerS which will make Lou jump and shout
Take a look Lou and drool as this is my new plan for the swash follower on my Tazer for the super cobra

And on the opposite side of what we talked about on the phone yesterday ... two followers would be better as you said Lou ... true one might break loose and foul the other one as I said ..but if you have two it will lessen the load on both and neither should break loose .

Larry,

I'll be glad to test the first one built that isn't up to your scale standards.

Lou
