The MB-6A


After a catastrophic blade grip failure (blade grip/blade shooted out of the helicopter) the original MB-6 fuselage was damaged beyond my repairing skills so the spare fuselage I had needed to be put into active service.

The MB-6A shares a lot of components from the original MB-6 but there are a few new things, amongst these upgrades are:

-new Align TOW Defender fuselage.
-new CF main blades.
-updated SK-360 settings for CF blades.
-added a feathering bolt locking mechanism (prevent blades from flying off)
-stubbier and slightly wider landing gear than the original MB-6.
-navi lights now on the landing skids (vs. under the doors on the MB-6)
-improved location of electronics and sensor arrays. RPM sensors, light controllers...
-different olive drab color scheme vs. the original MB-6's medium field green.
-interior cockpit is now painted flat grey vs. unpainted on the MB-6

Video.

Cheers.

Nice!
that is really good.
I like the lights in the skid. it looks natural, like that is where it was meant to be

LOVE the scale head, what motor are you using?
Looks all around stunning

I love the bottom left and right still shots, with the sky and just the tops of the trees, looks really awesome! The clouds are just right, nice and puffy with a little darkness in them.

Thanks! I agree, day was great for pictures, only that the wind kinda ruined the experience somewhat for some ppl. (you should've seen the tents/canopies flying off from these strong winds...)

Cheers!
