Mines up there on the left - the only electric left in the fleet, but it will definately always stay.

Pics

Ok, let me try and post an image for the first time. I hope it shows!

Here is a picture of my Eco8 with training gears. It's setup: Phasor 30/3 motor w/ Jeti ESC, HS-81 servos, 8 cell 3000 NiMH pack, Ikarus micro gyro, Hitec Eclipse 7 transmitter and a 23 tooth pinion.

I'm still trying to learn forward flight with it. It's kind of hard to make the turns since it's not a plane. I can manage to hover it, but I still need practice. so far I have about 15 flights with it. Only one little "incident", where the blade hit the ground.. I only had to replace the main rotor shaft (bent).

Of the numerous Micro, sub Micro helicopters I've designed, the House FLY, World's First Real Sub-Micro at the left, is the one I am flying these days.

Although I think helis look much more realistic flown upright as real helis were intented, the main reason I included the inverted photos of this FP House FLY sub micro heli
( see Inverted House FLY Post) no reason to repost here,
is to show that you do not need fancy mechanics to fly a heli inverted, just a bit of creativity. But I've also cautioned that flying inverted is not simple as it looks.

Flying inverted as shown is not exclusive to the House FLY. There is no magic in this if you rearrange the mechanics and use common sense.

You asked, I am showing you my brand new sub-micro chopper.


Merry Christmas.
