RE: GT17 in the fog
Thanks. I would have you check out Mickey Nowell's designs. Single rotor, direct head control. The difference, he uses a a fixed pitch heli head to control the gyro. The flybar maintains stability, and steers the model. Works great! No load on the servos, and can be controlled at all airspeeds. I would suggest a tractor for a 1st model, the pusher is "James Bond", but a tractor is much easier to fly.
