a bit of update on the UH-1D

Initially I did what I did with my snowwolf.. using the hinges.. but scrap that for this..

I epoxy it on to the kit.. very strong magnet.. after epoxying them on then realise you can actually save one side.. and just use scrap metal.. well.. It's very tight with both sides magnet..

Inspiredapa...

I did though about the apache.. But I think the 1/72 scale is too small.. I'm Not sure.. haven't got one to try..

But the look of it.. It's frame is smaller the the airwolf 1/48 scale.. I had to hack quite a lot off my airwolf to fit..

You could look at my airwolf build and have a gauge on it to see if it will fit..

cheers

looking good Questerng!
we get enough of these built and we can do a re-enactment of Apocalypse Now as they are coming in with Wagner blaring out the loud speakers!!!
Mine is gutted right now for maintenance issues but I did finally get the graphics I wanted for it...

I need to trim some weight on my hog.... and do the motor upgrade! (hopefully Santa has a little motor upgrade for me!!!) your HP08 ought to do the trick!!!

Questerng, Nice looking build! and yes, definetely need at least the c05 probably the H05 or maybe even bigger! after burning a tail mosfet and getting the board repaired (thanks Cartrixx!) I put it back together and ran into the same issue. I could get it up off the ground, but it was REAL squirrally and way underpowered. After the holidays I am going to do a BL mod... really need two, on for my stocker and one for the Hog.
I am still looking for a Bell 47 kit to build...

Hi at all,
great scale projects
I'm also looking for a 4 bladed head. There was a video on youtube (MIA-Product) but can not find this one on the homepage of MIA.
Any ideas?

Default Hughes "Cayuse" Scale mCP X

Hi everybody.

Very impressed with all the scale models I have seen so far... Great Work!

I enjoy hugely flying my mCP X, but I am also a big fan of scale helis, so...

I am in the process of converting (oops, wishful thinking... more like experimenting with) a mCP X into a Loach (OH-6) which would require a 4 blade head, it looked like the easiest conversion (yeah I know how that sounds). I am working on a home brew version but had some issues building my own parts like the feathering shafts for the 4 blade rotor head that fit the 3mm carbon mast, that I found, not to talk about with phasing, torque problems, blown tail, etc... (If I ever get something worth while showing, I will post pictures)
I was hoping that somebody maybe has come up with something usable by now. I read that someone had build a semi working 4 blade (It might be the same that was mentioned in a previous post, not sure)... as well as about a guy in Germany that had a 5 blade (for a MD500 D) in the works...

Anybody has any information, advice, cautionary tale, laughable remarks at me? Anything and everything very welcome...

Thanks so much for your help!

Fly safe!

Erwin
(Hopefully soon with a Loach)

Here's my Revell 1:35 scale Bell 47G kit-bash. Done up in black and yellow like the original N975B from "The Whirlybirds".



Here's a thread with a bit more details.

I have to say that the Bell 47G kit-bash was easier than I expected. And it would have been even easier if I didn't keep the ability to go back to pod and boom.

One thing though.... this totally eliminates one of the major selling points of the MCPx.... its crash survivability. The only good part is that the entire Revell kit was $12.95 at the LHS, which is on a par with a new stock canopy.

("This is.......helicopter....Seven-Five Bravo.....!!")
He ALWAYS gave a "Safety Tip" at the end of the show!!
Oh....Yeah....GREAT JOB on the mod!!!
