Making hinges..


Anyone familiar with flight test build videos will understand this process, for newbies not familiar with dollar tree foam board, mark a line where you want the surface to hinge. Cut through the first layer of paper and foam careful not to cut into last layer of paper. Laying the stabilizer on a flat surface carefully flex the control surface over. Take your razor and cut a 45 degree bevel in the foam. Run a bead of hot glue into the joint and wipe away the excess glue.

If there is enough interest I I can Scan the dimensions of each part, I made an exact replicate or drawing of every part. Unfortunately I am not computer savvy enough to make downloadable plans. two chippy 2.0's on the board along with plenty of spare parts , a little detail of my servo access cover.

In case anyone is wondering why I called the model chippy, its cause when the blades are loaded in a bank It sounds like a wood chipper running.

installing the guts in chippy


Using a turnigy park300 for power with a 3s 800mah flourein battery, turnigy 10amp esc, cheap $20 spektrum rx, and some three dollar nine grams servos. I found a cheaper motor from hobby king that should be the same weight but have more power.

flight stabilizer


This is the flight Stabilizer I will be experimenting with "shipped from china "It should install right behind the battery and get beginners hooked without being to hard to fly.

Free rc Autogyro for a willing person


My only requirement is your a fixed wing or heli pilot looking into getting into rc autogyros or you fly autogyros currently, located in the US, frequent this part of the forum alot and are willing to assemble and a do a video review or just a flight showing how good or bad my model flies. All speculation for now but forward your resumes. I will be releasing free plans in the future.

Working on a set of 16" blades the original ones were 12.5". This is to hopefully make for a slower model so the beginner can easily keep up with the model. Still waiting on gear to finish these three models, one is mine the other is my copilots and the third is a spare.
