That's freakin sweet... One of these days I'll put together a heli with retracts.. LOVE the look of them..

Q on flybarless.. How's the head stabilize? Rather clueless as to that subject.

Thanks for your comments.

Config:

Hornet 1 main frame and carbon tail,
Axi 2208/20 with Hornet 2 3D style pinion (?),
Metal head with crap heavy fake carbons, which work well for a flybarless heli,
GWS gyro, cyclic servos, and RX,
HS 50 tail servo and very slow JR retact servo (5 servos in this thing),
Home made retract system using the smallest Dubro wheels I can find,
Shell is an Airwolf, not 222, local made but no longer produced,
Decals are printed on 3M cast vinyl (at work...)

The flybarless head has a very raw feel and requires constant stick input. Unlike flybar, which will keep flying in te direction it's pointed, this thing requires the stick constantly pushed in the direction required. You need to fly one to realy find out.

That is cool! I sent that to a buddy that was assigned to Mercy Air III which that heli is modeled after. He got a kick outta that...
