This will be a design/build that has no finish date yet as I have 2 other birds to get flying. Plus a piper meridian design that is 95% done for a pal.

And as I am sure you know I got your stuff sitting here, so when you are in town one day stop by for lunch and you can get it. But no worries it can set here as long as you want.

And I have a 125" airliner to finish designing also.

Wow that looks just great! Can't wait to see it in your SR120

I am going to buy a 600 frame plus rotorhead now. Then I send you all the measurements you need to design the big one

Cheers
Alexander

Maybe we should open a new thread since it's getting serious

Trying to keep the 36 and Emmaselle going......

Amazing, 2 major builds underway and you still have time for this. Have you picked up a collective pitch heli yet?

Hi All,

it might as well be a Sikorsky S-55 which is probably easier to do (very low tailboom on the S-58) and it looks really great.

Enjoy

Cheers

Nope, no funds right now. Looking for some old airframes to play with.

I have flown a buddies CP heli. Completely different world, much more twitchy, but I did very well.

Thanks, DAG
