Hey Guys, I don't know if you heard, but the Bell 429 has had its first ground test run in Canada and it was successful. So it is well on its way into production.

See yeah

That's great news. We sure don't want this beautiful scale model to end up like the RAH-66 Comanche models.

Hi Fabien

The mechanism is installed in the ceiling like a full-size machine! Great!

Hi Fabien

Your mechanisms are great. The other scale mechanisms occupy
almost part of the space of the fuselages; Vario, Len Mount, Century,
ThunderTiger,....

Thank you for the compliment to my Agusta 109.
It is placed on the shelf above my desk; no problem for flying, but
batteries (SANYO 3000HV) are too old now. I have no occasions to go
to the riverside nowadays because of my business.

HI,

i'm now adjusting the mechanics in the fuse to make the woodworks kits.

It's possible to fit in the whole mechanics, just by removing the landing gears.
I am making the tail boom and belts kits as well with Rcer ( they need to be a bit longer for the fuse). There is plenty of room available, and we are now in the process to make some changes on the mechanics, we are developing with Rcer a new main pulley ( not gear, pulley) wich will be much smaller to allow usage of lower KV motors and this will make teh mechanics width smaller.
By this, the whole lower frames will be removed and a small motor mount will be made to fit on the upper frames. Then, it will be possible to create a little top mechanics support and to have the full scale interior.

The fins are made already and will be added this week, landing gears are ok and i need to make them aluminium or eventually carbon if i want them to stay scale diameter.

I will make it do it's first hops next week ends, i need to make the windows molds now ( for the moment i'll paint them black).

End of month, i try the E-Flex rotorhead ( designed by David for us) and final touch will be the left rotating main head + tail on the other side ( easy with Dragonus alu tail, can be mounted any side

BEst regards,

Fabien
