I finished my MX-400 rebuild , well it has been done but tonight I finished off the fine adjustments for the pitch curves and setup idle again after replacing my 400DH with an Align 430L. The new motor seems to have loads of power , I'm running it on a 11T powered by a polyquest 2100. The HS-55 can't seem to keep up to well in idle so I'm going replace it with an HS-65 or an HS-81. I have been lagging on getting this project finished since the temps have dropped and the winds have been rather harsh. I'm having a bad case of the winter blues, (I'm sure you guys are too) , all these toys and not much of chance to play..

Waiting to have some fun.

It's funny how we become addicted to trying this that and the other thing. Over the few years I have been into flying I seem to have started a moth collection of planes and helis, I figured I would post a few pics from projects past since the blogs were not around when I did my builds and who needs to see one more GWS build?

Since RCG gives us a blog I figure why not fill it up with my builds

For all the fuss I have had with Esky changing parts around this is one fun Heli. The build includes:

Esky upgraded swash and washout
CC-25 w/5V ParkBEC
HS-55's for swash
HS-50 for Tail
Futaba GY240 Gyro
JGF 400DH with 8T

The heli has a much better climb out then my Honeybee King ever did AUW of build came out to 498G. Sad to see Esky take the Honeybee Cool out of the lineup.

My favorite dynamic dual , well in my strange RC world anyway, hat's off to Multiplex for making some fun planes to fly , can't get enough of these two.

I modded the MX-400 today, moved the tail servo out of the frame and onto the tail boom. The servo linkage rod was picked off my old honeybee King, the threaded Z bend was removed and a threaded rod was inserted. Still messing with the motor plate to get my 430L installed, after that it's back to flying again.
