PRO-STAR "A star is born"


This is a reconfiguration of L.A Heli's Maxir helicopter components + some custom made components.

This is a 3D flight capable aircraft with 3 variable pitch lift rotors and a conventional rudder tail.

This is just a personal project for now. at least until I build a functional prototype. if everything works as expected then I will produce some parts to make a Pro-Star.

This is still a VERY BASIC model, not many details have been created yet.

Very nice CG modeling. It should be a fun project.

I bet you wish that there was a sim to practice with before maidening.

I would LOVE to have a sim that would import my Solidworks models, man that would be sweeeet.

but with this I already fly helicopters, and have the Y-ufo and I'm basically just mixing the 2 together.

the Pro-Star will work with a standard eCCPM radio setup. the hard thing will be figureing out which way to exit a Kaos LOL ( good thing I don't know how to do that move yet )

lately I have been visualising it doing 4 point tic-tocs 8 point flips etc.. I sure hope the Maxir driveline can handle what some of you crazy pilots can put it thru. :-)


when the design is final, i.e. all parts modelled I will render it in ultra high quallity .

Thanks for the comments guys, that fuels my desire to finish this

I guess you'll find out.

Swapping the 555 gears, main, and conicals gears would be a major PITA.
