Hi guys,

its been very quiet in this thread the last time sad

Rich:

I´m asking me where did you get this carbon fibre box section from, which you use for the Tail.

In the www I´ve found lots of carbon fibre Box section stuff, but nothing which measures 6mm x 13mm ???

Regards

Markus

Yesterday I met up with Rich Elliot who has just finsished his nice example of the Revolver. he has used 10mm round carbon tube for his boom and spruce stiffners in the mast. So, either square section or round can be used. My rectangular section was bought from my LMS, where they sourced it from I have no idea but I will certainly ask them the next time.

So a few photos taken yesterday.

Very nice Rich E!!!

Is it the same gear setup as yours Rich (H) ?

First with RedBull, then Repsol we'll be on a full MotoGP line up soon!

Anyone for a Crutchlow Tech3 Monster scheme or maybe a Rossi Yammy ???

Glad you like it Dave.
Our gear setups are very similar in terms of motors and servos, but I am still I'm the midst of the trimming stage and am trying some different two and three blade setups. As for the Crutchlow tech trios scheme, I think it would be a little dark for good orientation!!

Congratulations to both of you!!!

Can´t wait for the plans getting published soon!????

I´ve got some rotor blade blanks ready for getting sanded to shape! Thought of make me a set of spare blades for my panther but in fact that I don´t have shortened them yet, to the size that the Panther is using, I think I will wait till I know how long this Revolver blades will be wink

Hi Chris,

The 2 models both have fixed nose wheels for simplicity. But I made provision for a steerable wheel by locating the rudder servo up the front end if the builder decides to go 'steerable'. One thing I would recommend is a metal geared servo for this job as I am sure it will take a lot of punishment.

Let us know how your build progress down under.

Rich.

I was thinking that it was fixed as it is a bit "squeezy"up front, but when I watched your video again...it looked almost as if you had stearing on that front wheel.......so does the rudder give you a little authority

I know that I can ROG the Spyro OK with out a steraable nose wheel.

Chris,

Yes the rudder does give a bit of authority on the ground, as long as it tracks straight to start with it isn't an issue.

G'Day Rich I see that on you model you have not added any support for the carbon tail boom as it passes from under the rear fuz.....and I see Ricardo has....cos I was thinking that may be a critical support. I'm pretty sure you used it on the Spyro...Or on the other hand ,you may have decided that it was unnecessary.?????

Happy Landings

Hi Chris

Well seeing as you've spotted it , I suppose I'd better confess all.embarrassed

My added rear fuz support is there to correct a small boom alignment issue cause by my inability to build straight beer!

My boom is round because Rich had bought the last piece of rectangular secion tube from the LMS and I couldn't find any more. I don't think he has had any problems with his boom and my instinct is that a round one without the extra support would be fine. You could always epoxy a bit of round balsa up it for extra strength if you wish.

Looking forward to seeing your take on this design.

Cheers

Rich E

Now as if I would change any of Rich's design..

On the side elevation of the plan ...it shows F5 extending below the rear of the Fuz with the tail boom passing through................although I can see that this has been added on one model and missed on the other. My tail boom is two arrow shafts mounted vertically..and this is a very strong set up...its just that I think the support from F5 could be a good thing.

I have made a couple of small changes to the design as any fool can modify...but it takes a lot of " know how" to design from nothing....and that is what Rich is good at.

Chris........
