Blade 230S Scale Helis - Bell47G, UH-1 Huey and S300C

Recently assembled the Microheli semi scale S300C kit with a three blade head and had a great morning flying it along with the Ken Luo Bell 47G and the heavy cruiser UH-1 Huey gun ship.

I typically run upgraded main motors, more recently the very good aliepxress silver can 2627 motors in both 3600 and 4200Kv. the 4200 really give these guys some serious legs. The Bell is running the slower speed 3600 and that actually suits it quite nicely also.

Huey has a ZTW unit, great torque and spins the modded 300X rotor head and 245mm CF blades with ease.

the sportier of the bunch is the 4200kv powered s300c with triple blade head, very spritely performance and quite agile.

I often run my own twin esc as these are more reliable than the 230 V1 units, the V2 esc is a big improvement and can be tuned with BLheli software which is a big bonus. Boththe Bell and the S300C will get replacement twin esc, the bells tail is not happy and the stock 250cfx escs are not a nice match to this heli. Just waiting for the 25 amp hobby wing esc to arrive and will use a 20a little bee pro on the tail.

On they bench is another Ken luo kit - the SA316B Lama which will get a three blade head, and an align 250 MD500 unit. the align fibreglass shell is heavier and I'm considering using one of my upgraded 250 CFX units to power that. Still deciding what rotor head to run on the MD500, no one has a readily available 5 blade unit so will probably settle for a three blade on that as well.

anyways, some park fly and tuning videos.
