Will,
Yes we are using a stock Intrepid gasser for a camera ship.
I am waiting to see how your EB 3d's

No problem on the tailbox. Chris and Larry are looking at it and going to put a new gear in. No hurry I know they will get it back to us soon as they can.

In fact in typical Bergen fashion I got a PM from Chris today about my post above.
I didn't mean for it to sound like I was impatient or that it wasn't getting done. It kind of came off that way. Sorry guys!
In fact it probably didn't hit Larry's desk (Where Chris said he saw it. ) till Wednesday of last week so if it makes it back by the end of this week that would be quick in my book.

I am really wanting to try out one of those Industrial tailboxes, but I want to be able to get the mesh set 100% on the origianals before we upgrade this one to the stretch and new tailbox. Maybe the winter project for next year.
The stock Intrepid tailbox is so stout anyhow, but those larger gears I think will wear better over time and handle the torque of these gas motors better.

Thanks for the info Jason. Your post did not come off as impatient at all. Not a big deal. I am really looking forward to flying my EB. Waiting for motor now, it should be here soon. You coming up to IRCHA this year? If so you are very welcome to fly my EB at that time to see what you think of it. It would be nice to finally get to meet you!! Chris is quick on the draw to help. I have to be faster to be helpful and earn my keep.

Have a great day!!

I would love to come to IRCHA, but my work schedule is up in the air for that time now.
Hope to be changing departments real soon so that will put me at the bottom of the food chain for summer vacations.

Is it just me or shouldn't your elevator servo shaft be mounted the other direction... I don't say this to pick, but because I'm building mine now and if I'm wrong I'd like to fix it.

Elevator and Throttle servos both go in with the output shaft toward the rear of the heli on the Gasser EB.

HTH,

Should be the same manual as the the EB only means extended boom! Right?! Otherwise the machine is the same as every other Bergen Gasser. :!: :?:

Well there are little things that are different that I'm able to figure out.

But this confuses me. The manual says otherwise. Baja says the above. I don't disagree but how do you know that if it not in the manual? Is there anything else that's diffrant that I need to know about?

Here is a quote from the Intrepid Gasser manual page 27 explaining that both the throttle and elevator output shafts are supposed to be oriented toward the rear of the machine.

"Mount the throttle servo to the left lower sideframe with the output shaft towards the rear of the machine. The servo mounting ears (flanges) go on the inside of the frame. Mount the elevator servo to the right lower sideframe with the output shaft towards the rear of the machine. The servo mounting ears (flanges) go on the inside of the frame."

Hope this helps,

Not a big deal man. I am feverishly working on a 3D Rage right now myself, and I know exactly what you mean. I jsut cut myself with a razorblade.

Time for me to slow down to....

The most important thing is that you enjoy the build. I can tell you first hand after test flying my Observer for the first time yesterday that all your work will payoff 10 fold once you get to fly the fruits of your labor!! YEA BABY!!

I think I'm done for today. It's time to cut the torque tube. I'll wait for tomorrow to do that.
