Yes I have

Hi..I have built a coaxial rotor heli from scratch.

I made the blades from scratch..machined all the metal parts and designed the dual motor transmission and dual swashplates myself.

You can check out my work by looking for the experimental coaxial rotor posting and the build your own foam cored epoxy/fibre glass blades in this forum.

If you want more info private message me or I can respond to this thread.

Regards,

Dan
