It's getting close. Servos are in, finishing up the linkages and will join the upper and lower frame Sunday then I'm down to tailboom and a whole mess of odds and ends and setup.

Even if I weren't going to OCMA, I wouldn't have it done for Paso. Just have too many things on my plate that take precedence over anything helicopters. If the job situation doesn't change dramatically in the next few days, I don't even know if I'll do Paso...

Well alright, I guess we can let it slide this time . None of these silly work excuses though for IRCHA. I want to hear and smell some Jet A baby!

I'll bring what I've got done to Paso... It should be pretty much assembled by then, but I doubt it'll be flyable by then.

IRCHA may be a bust as well if this place folds... (Which is looking pretty likely at this point)

Man. Sorry I didn't realize it was THAT kind of work stuff going on. I'll hit you up on chat or call you so we can leave this thread to the turbine stuff.

Mere minutes from me hitting the render button. Just tidying up some transitions and text notes and it'll get going.

It'll be posted before I head off to work in the morning.

Head build part 1 is rendering right now. I've got to get some sleep so I'll post it in the morning before I head off to work.

Pic is posted in the Bergen forum. Lousy cellphone camera, but there's one there.

The update to the Head Build Part 1 vid was a correction to a mistake I made in assembling the washout block. Didn't catch that I'd installed one arm backwards. The price one pays for doing build videos at 2:30am. hehe

Posted a few more pics in the Bergen forum a couple hours ago. As of 5 mins ago, basic head setup is done so all that's left is curves, double check pitch ranges, build the tailboom/TR hub and set up the gyro and I should have a flyable airframe!!!

Kevin,

Haven't hung around Helifreak in a while to say the least but just got through wading through all 22 pages of this conversation. I've watched the first couple of vids, "very" impressive.

All this reminds me of the days back on rec.aviation.rotorcraft newsgroup when you were posting your adventures as a student heli pilot, working on your private certificate. Looks like this is ranking right up there with the newsgroup posts only with pictures and sound. You do have a knack for telling stories! Best of luck with the maiden flight.

Fly Safe,
Steve R.

Quick! Run! It's a usenet k00k!!!!

I was wondering when you were gonna pop up in here Steve... You gonna be at IRCHA again this year??? I'll be there, turbine in tow, Tuesday through Monday.

Riccardo - not sure where it'll be. I may take the drive up to Corona and have Ron Keith give it the once over before I spool it up.. 1st few flights will be trimming and tuning flights, but I'm hoping I can make a good dent in my fuel supply and get some FF and maybe some mild aerobatics in..

Hey Kevin,

I was planning on IRCHA but had a couple of things pop up that "might" get in the way. If I am there, it'll only be for two or three days. I'd love to take a look at the new bird though and it would be good to see Chris and company again for awhile.

Best of luck with those maden flights and try to find some place quiet. For me at least, things go a lot easier "without" an audience, especially when you're working on something totally new and unique. I think the Bergen Turbine falls in that catagory!

Fly Safe,
Steve R.

Update.. Had a small issue with the TT drive shaft that stopped me for a day, but I'm back on it again.

I've been holding off on editing video until I finish the helicopter and that should happen by tomrorow night as I'm down to just installing the tailboom (it's built) and the fuel tanks.

As soon as I'm done with that and have a (potentially) airworthy airframe, I'll start working on the rest of the videos. Should have at least one more up by this weekend.
