It's finally here! The long awaited Gaui X3 for RealFlight 6.5 and RealFlight 7!

This heli was modeled and tuned from the ground up to be a total smack machine! With an incredibly high power 6s power system and a specifically tuned VBAR this heli is an absolute joy to fly both in real life and in RealFlight!

Months of work have gone into this model, and it wouldn't have been possible without Anthony Donzella.


-KDE Direct 450XF 1750Kv
-YGE 40A ESC
-Pulse 1350mAh 6s LiPo
-VBAR FBL System
-New Halo 360mm Blades (which technically don't exist yet)

Canopy can fall off with the CH.6 Knob, turn it all the way to the right.

There are several camera angles. Press F4 and F5 to explore them (must be in a 3D field)

Headspeed is 2700 in normal mode, 3000 in stunt 1, and 3200 in stunt 2.


Enjoy!

More Progress.
Added Battery, Tail Boom Supports, Tail Pushrod, Tail Pushrod Support, Battery Tray, ESC Tray, Lower Bearing Block, Motor Mount, and Washout Arms.




Current Poly Count: 1688

Still have a long way to go, but I'm really liking it so far! Blade grips, canopy, and tail grips are gonna raise my Poly Count a lot.

I'm designing a Gaui X3 for RealFlight. Here's what I have done so far.

Anthony Donzella helped me get started, and we used TeamViewer so he could see my screen and control my computer if I needed help.

I feel accomplished

Ok, so the flight in 29 degrees went well. This thing is AMAZING.

Turning the cyclic pots down to 10 o'clock on the 3GX did the trick, no more cyclic wobbles, just crisp easy movements. This thing is SO stable!

However I do still need to sort out the tail wag, it even wags at 60% and a pitch pump really gets it wagging.

By the end of the flight my fingers were so cold I felt like I wasn't even touching the transmitter stick and it was hard to move my thumbs. I was scared to land since if I messed up and accidentally moved the cyclic stick back, the tail could hit the ground and strip a gear! I ended up just going a bit forward and landing with throttle hold on the street rather than try to land in the grass/snow-covered sidewalk.

Definitely a winner! Even with that 'crappy' Align 3GX
