LOL, I didn't see this canopy on HH's website. Must be one of the "optional" accessories.

Just goofing off with this one. I have about a third of the heli modeled in SolidWorks...lack of a micrometer has been slowing the progress. I just keep forgetting to go buy one while I'm out n about. After I have atleast the pod modeled I can lay some canopies over it super cool like and then 3D print the forms!

Super excited!

Well, lets see if this will work out. I realized that there is a possible cross compatability using the Rakon CNC main gear hub with the 300/350/450 main gear. I have the 300X/4503d main gear in the pictures and my Rakon Delrin main gear and CNC hub will be here tomorrow or Friday. I will then be able to see if the CNC one lines up to the 300X.

In the mean time I felt like modeling up a hub to 3D print. Might sound silly, but at $0.40 or less a piece printed it would be cheap to have a bunch of hubs printed to replace in a crash instead of the whole main gear.

That being said, I don't plan to crash. So...it's just an extra piece of mind knowing that if I don't have a spare stock main gear and for some reason everywhere online is backordered, I can utilize another models main gear with an adapter.

Up next is custom airframe. Why?...because prototyping is my passion!

Servo horn balls in my grips...(that's what she said) bahahaha

Always kinda bugged me how they angled out, now I can do the "o-ring" addition to the grip links to help minimize some of that very minimal play. Prior, it would already be pressing on the o-ring when at 0 pitch and get way too tight at full negative.

Since I haven't been into helis for too long, the swash follower concept doesn't mess with me. My buddy always gets backward when I start talking about swash up=negativeCP and down=positiveCP

Smile BLADE 230 S

Just some of my backyard flyers and some photo's of the optional BLADE orange fibreglass canopy & main blades. The yellow and orange tail blades are a LYNX option.

Nice fleet of backyard flyers! Also some great shots showing the relative size of each.

Scroll up a few posts see what I got.

DON'T...I REPEAT DON'T get the Rakon gear and plan on it holding up during crashes much better than the stock gear. My buddy is almost positive the reason why my main gear stripped both of my crashes is because the main shaft pivots separate from the motor mount.

In other words the mesh gets all angled upon impact. That was one of the first things I noticed OTB...pulled the main shaft left or right and mesh didn't line up. Forward or backwards isn't' bad at all.

Now if you are not crashing or pushing yourself hard then the delrin gear is super duper smooth! Don't wait...just buy it and let that smile grow when it arrives in your hands!

I'm hoping to continue on my CF frame design tonight. Hesitant to post pictures prior to it being finished. The input form others may be nice, but I just need to wrap up the 1st prototype then get some feedback. Otherwise the 1st prototype can take forever to get out and inevitably a 2nd prototype will be made anyways soooo...I'll have it up asap!

Currently trying to modify the rear servo geo to have linear servo/swash throw instead of the servo horns parallel with the heli and swash link at 60 degrees off the servo horn...hope you understand what I'm explaining but no biggie. It honestly probably doesn't matter at all but I think having a "proper" servo geometry would be neat.

Fun stuff!

Yes I know the AR636A isn't programmable so attempting to move the servos is probably futile. I was just considering the fact that as long as the swash isn't changing and the servos aren't swapping sides I should be fine. Its the swash angles that are really key to not change because that actually where the point of cyclic adjustment is made.

I'm really aggravated that I can't do any servo reversing in the FBL though.
Time to open up some servos and reverse the motors themselves, after sleeping on it another week or so and deciding if the experiment is worth it. Prolly be the only person attempting to do so cause it's really not worth it haha not on a heli like the 230S, train on it and move on really.

Different for me cause my girlfriend will be flying it for a long time I'm sure.

Yes and it's beautiful to fly!! I know it's hard but if you re-focus your eyes a little closer in you should be able to see the 230s lol

Lynx 245's with stretch boom. Bit easier to see. Nice yellowy disc. Also using Blade 245 carbons and Gaui 255 carbons.

I need to see how it flies with the stretch boom. Got any vids? Also...how do 255s handle?

I wish I did but I enjoy how the Ares Optim 300CP carbon blades fly so haven't purchased any others. Also the initial Zeal review was "more responsive but a little less max thrust"
If I remember correctly the reviewer said they were good but a slightly less climb rate do to shorter chord.
The Blade carbon 245's are probably pretty nice to fly
Not sure if I'll get Zeal
