G....I feel the same way....turbines are most cool...but I guess one has to be well off to afford one.....that pretty much leaves me out.!!

Hi Barry,
I'm running an AXI 5330-18 and no clutch. The big Kontronik Power Jazz ESC I put in provides extremelly nice and slow spool up. Two 5800 mAh 6s Turnigy Lipos in series provide the juice for 10 min. + flight time.
BTW, Peter Wales used this same motor on his big Vario Bell 47g conversion.

On another note: superhornet, those are some fantastic photos

Thanks...what happen to the original post about real till u see the 2 packs of battery
No choice and I can't find a good location to place the battery. Maybe I paint those batteries black or Olive Drab

Thanks hrbeta for the compliments. Only the UH-1C/M and bo-105 are mine. The rest are from my flying buddies (Adrianli, Wangzx and Ang)

Well it was a nice helicopter , he crashed it at the end of the video and the righthand door flew open. Looks like he got spooked there at the end maybe Tricopter got to close?

Actually, it wasn't that bad....he had it back in the air in an hour or so.

Excellent Hap.....thanks for the info. I'm new at E stuff and learning all the time. I like the soft spool up too.

Excellent, now add a little LZ smoke grenade, and preferably not a Hot LZ

Almost HH-60J

Had a request for a HH-60 Jayhawk but I had to tell the client that I only made the UH-60 (I guess he saw the HH-60J on my website and wanted one like it. Not having the time to do all the necessary mods we agreed that I just go ahead and paint the UH-60 like a JayHawk . Although Its not a true JayHawk I still think it looks pretty cool Im really hating getting to the place where Im making everybody elses helis look better than my own. Still got a ways to go on this , Landing gear, clear windshield and window install and Electric tail install then it is complete.
