MaxiR Belt driven tail conversion near.
Hey all MaxiR owners. I am close to releasing a kit for the tail rotor that will help all those that have had trouble with the tail rotor stripping gears.
Here is a prelim picture to show how the kit goes together.
Only thing to get done is design and build a Tail Rotor gearbox that goes well with the CF frames.
As you can see, the kit is basically a new frame set (CF), modified bottom main shaft bearing block, and an aluminum idler pulley set, pulleys, belt and a new Tail rotor gearbox. You will be able to re-use almost everything on the MaxiR without having to get any special parts. Weight remains virtually the same as before the conversion. I am also working up a set of stock looking LG struts that will bolt right on and increase the height of the heli 3/8 of an inch and get the tail rotor out of the grass.
Like the Pope said to Mike Angelo as he was painting the ceiling in the Cistine Chapel..........."When will you make an end?
Cheers - Boyd
Senior Design Engineer
