The rear struts have steel rods inside for more weight or support, hard to say.
You can also cheese-hole the metal parts, and go to lighter aluminum for the landing skids.


Chopper #17 blown apart for paint. 22 screws removed to get to this, not too shabby.

Is this one going to be 'Killbucket Black' or 'Wifey Pink' then?

Dilrod Dayglow Orange.

Krylon's #3102 Yellow Orange Fluorescent.

Possibly with flecks of another color on the frame plates, for added artsy-fartsiness.

orange sounds interesting, Iv'e seen motors "cheese holed" 1-2 grams in total?
I know dust may become a problem, in theory the motor can could be trimmed out to the point where its just a cage and if needed a light plastic wrap, like the yellow stuff on the cell terminals?

thermal mass


the motor needs a lot of its materials there to dissipate heat, but that's the thinking.
Cut away what doesn't need to be there.

Maybe replace the frame plates with thin aluminum tubing struts?

I seen what you mean about the cans heat sink properties, you maby, and I do mean maybe... with the coil exposed it would become air cooled?

I may experiment on some of the picooZ I have floating round, Lisa would prob kill me for thinking this but we have a rather nice/expensive "in-ear" thermometer for the baby, that should give me a good indication of what effect removing that much motor can has on cooling.

Dayglo Orange! Those poor dogs of yours will need sunglasses...

Looking at that tear-down pic really shows how big that tail blade is in comparison to the main blades. It looks HUGE.

You must like your brother's photo - haven't you posted this photo of him several times already? Is he really in jail? What for? Did you really send him one or was that a joke? I wonder if they would let people in some prisons use those things... I would imagine not.

Question: does the s032 battery have a built-in charge cutoff?

Do you think that there is a chance of doing "240mahs batt upgrade foe s107" for s032?

Edit: so that mean that you can actually plug the batt directly on the charger and then have multiple batt? Or its just not the same connector type?

Hello from the South Pacific island of Vanuatu.

Loved the S-107 thread - killbucket you are prolific, thanks to you and all the other heli "engineers" I understand how interesting these little birds are.

I got an S-107 in Brisbane, cost AU$59 but that was before I found this site.

Now I have ordered 6 more red 107s and now 2 silver/blue S032s. i am using a Hong Kong distributor

These guys have the Syma S032 listed as a "firey dragon" or "snow dragon" rather than firebird.

http://www.toptoyexpress.com/syma-s0...pter-gyro.html

They have silver/blue too which I think looks real classy and only US$29-95 each, two cost US$45 to ship registered airmail.

Sorry I don't mean to hijack the thread.
