Team orders It's still a time of year I look forward to. I live in an area surounded by NASCAR fans most of whom have no clue about F1 or much of anything in motor sports beyond left turn, left turn, left turn, left turn.......yawn. To each his own. Thankfully it's a very competitive year in F1 after the first half looked like Red Bull had it locked now the prancing horses are coming on strong.

Sorry for the OT.

I guess, to each their own. I try to watch F1 ( I like all racing) but one guy gets out front and that's the race. Really don't see the appeal short of the very attractive women hired to hang out in the sponsors tents.
IMO that is.

Hey I guess that's why I'm attracted to all motor sports. Nothing wrong with anything on wheels going fast along with some nice eye candy. I'm there every time.

Here's my T500 AS-350 after a repaint and a few mods post-hard-landing. Windshield opening was opened up to better match the 1:1 version with a new windshield oven-formed and installed, side windows tweaked, and the air intake up by the rotor added.

Now that is one sweet "squirrel" Just add a center brace at the middle of the windscreen before you get rid of that beautiful blue paint. Masterful rework on your heli. Thanks for sharing.

Cheers - Boyd

Hey thanks! Yeah, that center bar is on the to-do list. Maybe a very very light tint on the windows as well...a little too invisible.

Some video of squeezing it in the backyard under trees, avoiding walls, innocent bystanders, etc...

Very smooth and steady. Good stick work in a confined space.

I'm only a beginner myself, but I've got flybar weights fitted as supplied in the kit. I also use 20% expo both directions on cyclic stick. I've also got a little 'flat spot' set up on the collective pitch curve just at the hover point. Hope this helps
