50 Size Airwolf build

Postby Cyberfyn » Fri Aug 26, 2011 5:03 pm

Finally getting around to matching up the Century Airwolf fus and the Hirobo Sceadu Evo 50.

First trial fit of mechanics to fuselage to mark for mounting points. Vario Strobe kit fitted (one top, one bottom)

Mechanics mounted onto supplied hardwood supports and bolted to fus. Cooling vent cut for the OS50 Hyper. Century scale Muffler fitted (cheers Ian)
Image

Trial fit of top hatch to mark for swash plate cutouts. Front screen mounting holes drilled. Retracts fitted. You can see the nifty little Turnigy unit in the front side window that syncronises all three retracts.

10 minutes of carefull Dremel use later:

That's as far as I've got so far. Bank holiday weekend and a trip to the Nats for some bits and she'll be done! More pics to come....

Yeah, the 600 is a mechanical work of art. I'm still building it, so will bring it down when its all sorted. Just programming the flybarless system and setting up the governor on the esc. Talk about complicated!

Lol. Yeah it's the new 600EFL Pro with the 3GX system and CC Phoenix 80 ICE-HV ESC running on 12s. Both the 3GX and ESC need to be setup on the computer and ported across. Good thing is that there are real world setups that you can download and use, rather than blindly trialing yourself. Got four Tunigy Nanotech 5000mAh 45-90c winging their way from Hobbyking, so should all be ready soon. Looking at the Youtube vids it's going to be pretty much unlimited!

And back into bits again! Exhaust came loose on the second test flight, plus it was running hot, so all stripped down again. Exhaust re-fitted with red Locktight AND nylock nuts. Heatproof metal tape fitted to front of frames to help duct cooling airflow over the head and out the cutout in the fuselage. Plus fitted a Model Avionics Revlock Governor I had siting arond. Will be re-re-built and flown at the weekend.... Weather permitting.

Keep it for year mate. It'll still get the same money next year as they are sought after models. Especially so with the extra scale bits on. Might nip down and have a looksee at the waterplane at the weekend. Need to blag a go on something to see if it's something I like :wink:
