Moving on..............helicopters.....remember them?

What a day, great flying, Ben finally cracked 'nose in'! Headhunter ripping up the clear blue sky. All birds performing perfectly, stall turns, fff and good company (plus we both got our cars washed while we were flying.....there is a company right behind our new flying field that do a car wash for about 2 quid and park your car back for you when its done) It just doesn't get better than this!!!

Default WOOHOO SHIPPING SOON

OK Boys

Haven't been on the forums for a while had a crazy busy couple weeks at work and one major disaster that i have been trying to rectify.

SO

I now have all the Head Hunter parts!!!!

I have assembled a full production HH frame set with all actual production parts and she went together beautifully. I even had a short test flight with my new Flybarless setup that went very smoothly, I couldnt have been more happy.

Unfortunately there is a small downside .......isn't there always a downside.

I got some of my protoype parts back from the guys who was doing the vibration polishing and I didnt like the results. They just ended up looking dirty and you could still see the tool marks. My wife has dissapeared for a few days with my camera so i cant show you pictures.

SO i have decided not to have any more parts polished and this first batch of frames will have some minor tool marks on the aluminiuim components.

That means...drum roll please......I can ship THIS WEEK!!

for thos of you who are stil linterested in purchasing a set of Head Hunter Frames please send me a PM with your FULL Shipping address and i will give you my paypal address.

Thank you all for your patience

Ben

Hey, what's wrong with tool marks? Tool marks can be SEXY!

As long as they are neat and orderly of course.

Personally, I think post finishing erases all the precision and craftsmanship.

I imagine it could be designed for a Hurry. What boom size and pulley is used on it?

Hey Bob

Yes i totally agree with you!! I like to see good craftsmanship but unfortunately there are also scratches and a few other minor marks that dont look so nice.

Until i can solve the problem the parts will be "polished" with something like a scotch-brite pad to give it a brushed look.

Bob i have received your email and will get back to you very soon, have been very busy in the real world. Thanks for that.

Cheers

Hey Bob

Show them a picture of your Three Bladed tail and your FBL head and swash combo

They will love those!!

Bobs Stuff is mainly for the Trex 500 i believe which means there is a good chance it may fit the Hurricane will have to check on the boom diameter.

I know the Trex has an 8mm main shaft the same as the Hurricane.

Bob the boom size is 21mm... the tail shaft is 5mm.

Do you need a tail unit to make one??

Yeah, your memory is getting there...Scott's handling distribution. But, actually, I don't want to rob the thread from my friend Wazzer.

WAIT a minute, he asked me too.
Here you go.
