That machine is amazing, your many hours of patient work are repaid. You must be very proud of it, a target for any home builder to aim for.

Very nice setup...

Any plans for a scale head on that beast?
I bet it would look pretty sweet with a 5 blade head on it...

Just watched the VDO and have to say wow that heli looks totally awesome in flight!

You know I've seen some scale bodies that affects the flight characteristic of the heli but watching yours fly I can see that your scale doesn't effect how she flies at all! Shocked

Thanks again for sharing Very Happy

Thanks guys. for your excellent comments, yes it flys just like a standard TREX but the C.G. is 40mm Behind the main mast!! The mechanics have a 12.5 degrees down tilt, cams as full size wessex. And it does fly well, not that I can fly that good..
CHEERS.... Very Happy Very Happy
