As for painting, I use normal brush and tamiya paint to paint the hub. The paint ca easily came off. For the hub, I use tamiya spray paint. After the Matt Black, I also spray a few layers of Tamiya clear paint.

Maybe u can try spray Tamiya clear paint 1st on the hub, then spray paint whatever paint u want. After that, spray clear paint again. That should protect the paint from coming off.

Thats a good idea. Clear it to protect it.

How is the tail holding?

The tail is holding good since I modify the tail to spin 6.5x (or 6x..can't remember) during the last few flights in MD500E...before I move the heli into this fuselage (AH-6)

By having 6.5x tail speed, my main rotor can go low RPM. I think I set my Castle Creations governor to be around 1650rpm

Current scale fleet

Hi All

I've had a variety of scale heli's in the past, but here are some pics of my current ones,

The MD500D is my latest model and I have just finished a cockpit for it. I am hoping to enter it in the UK nationals at the end of August.

Version A of the MB-6 had a 6.9 tail ratio using the two blade tail rotor but the belt didn't like it when pushing hard collective maneuvers and crosswinds.

BTW, I fly mine at 1500 RPM for normal mode, 1650 for idle up 1 and 1770 for idle up 2.

sdjb - Thanks!

I honestly don't know about the Heliartist fuses, as I've never had one... maybe someone else can jump in?

That Sea Ranger is AWESOME!!

You all are probably tired of seeing my Jet Ranger, but I just got some great in flight shots taken by a fellow pilot who also does photography.

Best source for 450 size fiberglass fuselages are:
US = HeliDirect.com
Hong Kong = Flying-Hobby.com, SmartModel.com.hk,

Thought I'd throw in some of my toys...

First is a Helibody JetRanger. Nothing special but a bargain basement marvel using a $59 CX450, $7 cyclic servos, $22 gyro, thrown away micro tail servo (T250 kit servo), and some sort of hobbycity motor and esc.

Next is a Trex 250 with the Align 500E body. Left tail rotor mod, tail servo relocation to next to the motor, and a Scorpion 3900kv motor to handle the weight much better. Next mod is a move to some 1300mah batteries which should work just fine CG wise and increase flight times...awaiting the battery arrival to see how that works out.
