Just a reminder to folks trying to deal with the dreaded Toilet Bowl Effect to go check out Heli Pad's awesome blog post about it:

I fixed a pretty severe case of TBE on my rebuilt Helizone S107G by flying with only one flybar link. I wouldn't have thought of trying that but Heli Pad's list had it on there. Worked great!!!

Gotta also mention that HP's info was of great help when my first helicopter, a Swann Micro Lightning, had TBE almost a year ago. Fixed it and it is still flying!

LARGE S107, 28" in length (not a Syma)
Noticed this one on eBay recently:

she flies great! not what i'm used to in terms of speed haha but she flies exactly like a stock s107... the weight of the LEDs, chip and socket cant be more than 1.5g or so

i tried to leave everything as stock as possible, but i had to resort to doing the removable battery mod and relocating the battery beneath the body, between the skids. i did this so i could solder the LEDs to a socket, allowing me to remove the chip for adding patterns and such later on.

if i had connected the LEDs directly to the chip legs (instead of a socket), there would be enough space for the chip to straddle the battery -- so everything would be contained in the canopy. assuming we started with a stock S107, the extra weight up front would mean faster forward flight.


now for some pics



test fitting the LEDs:

everything installed inside the canopy -- added a button for mode selection:

Quite a craftsman you are. Moving the battery help with the balance I think. What does you battery mount look like now?
