Durafly Auto G night flying blades

Hello Gyro nuts! It has been a while.


Auto-G night flyer (0 min 15 sec)


Pics and flight video to follow. It would be cool if HK could make/sell a kit to do this

Here's a previous conversion I did on Al Foot's Twirl.

"Box" Twirl Nightflying2 (3 min 37 sec)

This conversion was done using the parts from the Hobbico Axe 100 SSL.

Here are the brushes. I used 2 because I was not sure how much current they can handle. I am using 12v straight off of the flight pack. The LEDs came from Linrose Electronics and were already resistored for 12v. The SSL main gear with the slip ring is just sandwiched between the bottom nut and main rotor. The gear was reamed out to fit the Auto G mast.
