Update: Rotors

Ok, so I thought I would step away from the engine for a bit and start tackling The folding rotors or should I say the NON-folding rotors[tongue].

Parts to start with



As you can see they aren't very accurate to the real thing to start off with so the end result will not be as well. I'll get it as close as I can.



First thing to do is separate the blade from the rotor joint.



I was going to try and go around the tight corners but THAT was NOT going to work...so I decided to just cut straight across the blade then cut out the 2 little pieces that were left.



This is the correct angle I'm shooting for.



Then I needed to clean the joint end. Just used a round file to get it round again.



Here I needed to cut the center out of the joint end to look the part.



And here is the result. Brushed a little Tamiya extra thin on the inside to clean it up. Happy with how it turned out.



Now I started on the blade side. I had to replace the 2 nodules that join the blade to the Rotor so I had to cut some notches to receive the styrene strips I used to replace these.



Measuring the width of the strips to transfer them to the blade. then I cut them out.






Time to glue the strips in



Then brushed on some Filler goup



Now just got to let it dry then I can sand and shape the nodules. One more to go!![crazy]

That's where we sit! more to come!![biggrin]

Cheers!

Spectacular work. I'd be way to afraid to try and make such adjustments. Can't wait to see you bring it all together.

Thanks Jim. Yea I was reluctant it took me about 30 minuets to actually put a blade to this thing lol kept telling myself "Ok now if you screw this up your gonna have to buy a whole new kit just to replace this rotor". but it turned out to be easier then I thought, even found some PE I could use on it.

that video is great! I have watched quite a few but that puts everything together in just over 90 seconds. the maneuverability and ordinance power is astounding. I want one--a real one.
Just went through the whole thread again--I love all the work you have done. that engine is a piece of art all its own. the rotors? the manufacturer will be calling you to get you to let them cast those!!
