V950 - Hughes 300c scale build pt3


V950 Hughes 300c part 3

Rotor head update. Swapped out the stock plastic v950 blades for 2 sets of trex 250 fibreglass units . Online reviews warned that they can vary in weight between matched pairs so to get three matched was a chore - a fair amount of tape on one, but otherwise they balanced out nicely overall. Secondly they are thinner at around 3mm, added blade 450 plastic rotor shims on the bottom then selected thin steel gearbox shims over the top. Bit of effort getting the tracking spot on. They look great and the stiffer section adds crispness to collective and cyclic response. And they are dirt cheap from hobbyking and if you have the patience required to balance and shim them they do provide a nice setup.

Another rotor blade worth investigation is the new lynx Oxy 2 blades , lynx quality and a sharp price.

Replaced the failed stock tail motor with a Walkera Master CP unit, cheaper than the WL part and has the pinion gear already fitted which also matched the 950 setup.

added blue tinted acetate "doors" goes nicely with the yellow canopy.

Overall it is flying really nicely and I can see it being a fun park flier from here on in
