What I turned my Coaxial Heli into

Tired of playing around trying to get my QS8006 to fly.
I did a complete rebuild, and now it has NO problems at all. LOL!

Thanks kgoodone.
The first build was made of door skin plywood and a little heavy, but got about 20-25mph.
The second build is made of 1/4" Sintra PVC Foam Board and is 1/2 the weight.
The pond dried up, so haven't had a chance to get it wet yet.
Both versions are 1ftx2ft and 1.5" deep. Rudders are none moving, you steer with the motors.
Will do a donut in a 15x30 swimming pool but no room to open it up and get a speed test.
I used the tail blades as pusher props. The main motors really wind them up. Sounds like twin .40's at wot.
I guess it will rain here again someday. lol !
