Default Alfie's Hughes MD 500 250 size Multi Blade !!!!

hi guys,

My friend Alfie Ibanes, who lives in Kansas ask me to build a scale detailed MD 500 with custom made rotorhead, after finish another MD we start to talk about mount one with the Illinois Police Department paint scheme and details tipically of police helicopters. Alfie worked with at the police department, later I told about why he ask to build this one...

This was my first attempt to make a penta head:

The details of the project are:

White unpainted MD500 E fuselage 250 size ( very nice !!)
Align T-Rex 250 SE
Align 3G Flybarless Stabilizer or Flymentor 3D Auto Pilot.
Custom Made Rotor Head
Align Plastic Blades

I'm plan to make a very detailed work, even open the tiny litle doors of the fuselage heheh!. Scale light and much more...

Alfie send to me nice gifts of the Illinois Police Department, THANKS ALFIE ...I LOVE IT!!! I will wear when make the flight video

....today started to mount the mechanics.

At first I will make the rotorhead, in my first penta head don't like the blades, so I have this idea of modify the Align plastic blades.

Cutting the blades I have a better scale appearence, less drag and weight...

After cut next step is sand the edge, need to correct the shape of the edge, then balance and paint.

[8D]...today I finished the blades, after cut to the new format I sanded the trailing edge to remake the shape..

Each blade weight 10,2 grams before the modifications...after cut and sand the final weight was 9 grams, with the area reduction now I have 15% less drag...

Now i'm mounting the mechanics, tomorrow will start the new penta head, maybe Sunday can do a flight test with fuselage...

To stabilize will use the Align 3G...
