    Nigerian Homebuilt helicopter

    I am currently building a fixed pitch helicoper. Size 450. It is almost entirely homebuilt. When i first made the commitment to build this helicopter. My location and dwindling funds made it impossible to buy most of the critical components required to build a docile heli. But having made a commitment,i went on to fabricate those parts i couldn't buy. These parts includes,the rotor head,swashplate,oneway bearing,main rotor blades(wooden) and a Brushed Motor modification(to increas the Motor Kv). All these aforementioned parts have all been fabricated and tested to certify worthiness. The Heli is almost done. It took me roughly 800 hours,including several trial and errors to get it up to the current stage nowAs situation stands right now. The heli does lift up under its own power and is capable of carying the full heli weight including the li-ion battery pack. However,i don't do this for long as i have to hold and steady the tail with my left hand so the Heli does not roll or pitch. The reason is; i haven't installed the servos that control the swashplate. I'm still looking for servos and a 4 channel Tx/Rx. The one i am currently using for testing purposes,has only 3 channels. So it would be fatal to attempt to use it to fly the heli. Here is my progress work on the Heli:

    RcUniverse is not as friendly as it was before the "reformat". Cannot attach PDF's. If you PM (private message)me your email address, I will send you several articles on scratch built RC helicopters that will help you.
