Default Any one seen a Kaman K-Max type RC Heli?

Any one seen a Kaman K-Max type RC Heli?

Just curious if there have been any custom built K-Max type RC heli’s? I have always thought this would make a cool RC.

Back in the right seat after 6 years off!

You know its bad when you are picking up parts from the latest crash in your normal flying spot and pick up more parts than the heli had pre crash.

Hi Helocat,

I've not seen the K-max modeled (even though I agree; it would be a cool chopper to model). But I have seen pictures of another side-by-side tandem helicopter model, the Flettner Fl-282 Kolibri. The K-max should be a similar project.

I knew I'd seen pictures of one:

I always thought the Husky might make a good model too.

Talk about a coincidence! Just a week ago I was crewed on a 212 with a Swiss pilot who up until April this year, had been flying a Kamax for Rotex. When Hienz found I was an avid R/C heli flyer, he told me about a Swiss fellow who had contacted Rotex regarding their color scheme(s) because he was buiding an R/C Kamax. The guy later sent some photos to Rotex of the completed model - I'm guessing the link above is to the same guy and the same model! Quite an achievement given the complexity of the flight control mixing on the full-scale (arguablely more complex even than the Chinook flight controls).

hey guys , I'm glad to see someone else interested in the k-max. I think this could be built using 2, simple fixed pitch hummingbirds ....I built a small proto using stuff I had , and I know that differential cyclic will yaw the craft. In the full size they use both , diff cyclic, and diff collective. Timing of the rotors can be done with 2 smaller main gears , set on the 26 degree angle . Can you make these smaller helis' flybarless ? any input would be appreciated .

thanks , {new to the site,but helos ...} Terry

Default that is neat!

We used to use k-max heli's to run supplies ship to ship when i was in the navy, on west-pac cruise. I really like that heli!

Having grown up on SAC bases most of which had a few HH43's for fire suppression I loved watching those Husky's fly. The intermeshing rotors are absolutely fascinating and I've been wondering if anyone had come up with a kit yet....I know the issues with mixing and syncronization of the rotors shouldn't be too big a deal anymore with the microcomputer age upon us. Be nice to see some of these start trickling down into the ranks of the standard scale types. I guess they really weren't all that common in the real world though with Kaman and Kamov being the big names there....
