As nothing that comes out of my shop is stock, I have a few questions (modified a lot of full scale planes too).
Is the stock landing gear up to the task? I would rather mod it now than after it gets mangled. I have installed a set 1 7/8" (75mm) light fat foam wheels. I have a steerable tail wheel mod that allows for the removal of the boom and tail mount for replacement. I'll see if I can post a few photos.
Has anyone thought about flipping the rotor shaft bearing block upside down? It would lower the rotor 1/4" closer to the roll pivot axis. It also changes the pushrod geometry and length. I had a bad servo so I went with a single HS-85MG servo with 50 "oz. (3.5kg cm) torque.
Does anyone have a ballpark figure for rotor RPM?
Thanks,
Ken
