a helicopter i've made last week, it has a gearbox, tilting rotorblades, and you can control those funtion in the cockpit!
About this creation
it has been a really long time ago since i've uploaded something big, and when i broke down my 1/8 scale F1 ferrari, i wanted to build something else of it. so, a lot of the parts are frome the ferrari. i was planning to build it around 40 cm long, but i realised i had oversised it... a lot. it is:
-34 cm high,
-19 cm wide,
-81 cm long, (with both rotorblades at 45 degrees)
and the top rotorblades are 85 cm.
it is based on a helicopter i found on the internet, but i had only one picture, so...
hope you enjoy my heli!
the side... i like the bubble, it came out really good(as far as i see)
i know, mos of the choppers habe bended steel train-tracks, but this is way cooler!
the tails is smaller at the end, and it is pritty light-weight
the doors of the cockpit open and close
the engine- and exaust system(hope i spelled that good). when the rotors turn, the engine works, but the exaust system is just to let it look cooler...
the back of the engine... here you can see the gears i've used for the gearbox
what makes my helicopter special? i has seatbelts!
and withthese grey things you controll the angle of the wings and the ration of the head- and tail rotor
when the headrotor turnd, the tailrotor tuns as well... with this gearbux, you can change the ratio: you can make the helicopter turn. this is a 3-speed gearbox, you control it with the right stick
and the system to tilt the rotorblades. i've added a blue line to make clear how it works. you control it with the left-hand stick
(and sorry for the overlighted picture)
if the stick is vertical, the heli hovers. when you push the stick away from you, you lift becouse the rotorblades tilt
Goed gedaan, dat met die plates als rotorbladen, of hoe je die dingen ook noemt, dat had ik zelf nog niet daarachter gezocht. Mooi ontwerp en welk foto het ook moge zijn, je bent er volgens mij erg goed in geslaagd die op schaal na te bouwen. Ga zo door.
