Default Huey "HOG" UH-1B pictures

Here's a few pitures of my Huey Hog Uh-1B heli.
I used the Uh-1B kit from RC Aerodyne, and modified the Miniguns, then added the 24Rd. Rocket Pods to each side.

Hi Mike.
Nice machine and glad to see you have gone electric, after converting to electric I've not looked back so far. The only thing I noticed is you have a flybarless setup on a machine that actually is supposed to have a flybar(just weights instead of paddels) This has to be a first

tjmackey, I know the haead is not to scale. I made it that way so I could use the Skookum360 electronic stabilization system.
Besides, the flybar I've seen on other setups was not scale in appearance. The bar was too long, and did not resemble the
original.

I built this heli as a "fun to fly" heli, not so much as a super scale ship.
Also the Skookum360 is fun to work with, works great.

Nice looking model you have there Mike. The Huey is my favorite scale model and am looking forward one day to building one. Great job!

Mike, that's a great looking Huey. I have avoided getting into RC Helicopters for decades but my resistance is failing. I have been into RC for over 40 years but fixed wing only. Where did you get the airframe, body and the like for your model? I am sorry for the basic questions but as I said, I am a novice when it comes to RC Helicopters.

I flew Hueys in Viet Nam and intend to build my ship someday.

As an aside, the rotor is turning the wrong way and the tail rotor is on the wrong side. Is there a more correct airframe available?

Thanks in advance.

Chip, The model pictured is a kit from RC Aerodyne. It is intended for the T-Rex600e airframe,
that's why the tail is the way it is.
I built this heli as a fun flying heli, and not a super scale setup.
Depending on your scale building ability, you could make this heli more accurate to the
actual heli, or go to a more scale setup from Vario, Len Mount, to mention a few.

Actually the later models of the Huey had the tail rotor on the other side, they moved it so that the advancing blade was moving up and into the downwash to improve tail rotor authority. Though for the B model, you are correct, its on the wrong side.

Helo,

I'm working on the same model I got from RCAerodyne only in the Trex 500 size. No instructions on how to mount the frame in the fuse. Can you tell me how you did it? I also have a Trex 450 in a Hughes 500E running 5 blades and I was thinking of rigging a similar floor plate in the UH-1. Still have a Trex 600 that I will more than likely mount in Cobra Gunship. Thanks.

squawk7700, the 600 size kit came with wood spacers for mounting the mechs.
The other size fuselages I would assume they should have the same method. If not I would make my own
to fit what you need, as a matter of fact that's what I did anyway, with my 600 size huey.

Thanks for the info and the photo. I have already been working on designing a floor plate. As far as the spacers go all six are the same size in length which doesn't allow overlap on the ends for the mounting screws. So I need to make some additional spacers as well. Thanks again for the help.

Mike,
that is good looking Huey and nothing wrong with a sport scaler. As long as you're happy with it that's all that counts.
These ARF fuselages are spreading into the 1/6 and 1/4 scale helis now also, which is a good thing if you just don't have the time to spend building and just want to fly a nice scaler.

Chip, another option you have for a nice B model Huey is Unique Aircraft in Dalton, GA. He is currently building his website and also offers 1/7 scale Apache which is beautiful. the owner, Darrel Sprayberry is a scale master and one of the nicest guys you could ever meet. Here are a couple of pics of my UA B model Huey which I'm finishing up.
It has Century predator mechanics converted to electric with the clutch which makes it a "poor man's turbine" with the spool up and spool down.
