Designed to take your Chaos or Trex torque tube versions and transform it into a scale RC version of the twin-turboshaft civilian helicopter.
This kit includes the scale body with mechanical retracts one servo is required but not included to operate all three retracts. CNC Aluminum landing gear is also included as is a side weapon set, tail fins, "wings", and mounting accessories. When you open the box, the fuselage is completely painted in standard automotive base coat and clear coat for a super gloss finish.
The HUMMINGBIRD Helicopter
A removable canopy and nose section allows easy access to the battery and mechanics, and is factory installed with magnets and locating pins. This fuselage can be installed in as little as hrs and is intended for the intermediate to advanced builder. No modifications needed when using compatible mechanics.
Roban Scale Helicopters are intended for modelers who have advanced level building skills. KIT product formats also require you to install your own helicopter mechanics. Because helicopter mechanics can vary greatly in size and shape, you may be required to modify the fuselage slightly including cutting, drilling, etc. Roban fuselages are all handmade from fiberglass and therefore may have slight variation in tolerances between body panels, doors, or windows.
These variations do not affect flight performance and can be easily adjusted by an experienced builder with proper tools. These precautions are intended for novice builders; an experienced modeler should have no issue achieving perfect results with these premiere scale helicopters kits. Good size, great detail and paint. Instructions, vague to assemble landing gears. Overall good product.
The landing gear hardware is problematic, but can be overcome with the proper components. Overall, a great value. I put this body on a trex Posted By: redback June 16, In fact, kit helicopters are so complicated that many builders never finish them. The company was promising to produce a kit helicopter with simplified and fast construction and increased reliability, all for about the price of a mid-size automobile. To introduce its new single-seat kit helicopter called the MiniRHC was hosting an open house that included a factory tour, flight demonstrations, and the complete assembly of a Mini in two days.
Now, I must admit that while I was intrigued by the concept, I was nonetheless ambivalent about flying the Mini Kit rotorcraft enthusiasts will remember him as the designer of the successful Air Command gyroplane. He is the classic idea man, always trying to make improvements, never completely satisfied. Now, four years later and with more than kits pre-sold, he is ready to start production. With some coaching from Fetters over the radio, I lifted the little helicopter into a hover, and indeed it hovered as promised.
The cyclic control had about the same feel and sensitivity as the R22 but required slightly more stick displacement to make corrections similar to the Schweizer As a demonstration, two to three Revolution employees built this kit, shown here in progress, in two days. One noticeable difference was the throttle and collective control coordination, which required adding more power when raising the collective.
I accelerated through effective translational lift and started climbing away from the airport. In cruise flight, the Mini helicopter was remarkably stable and reached its advertised maximum cruise speed of 83 KTAS with relative ease.
During tight turns, the Mini was predictable and displayed a solid feel characteristic of a production aircraft. In fact, I was becoming quite comfortable with the helicopter, and my earlier feelings of apprehension faded quickly. I performed a couple of closed traffic patterns, and the Mini behaved much like the R Hovering back to the ramp, I noticed that the wind had picked up, and this gave me a good opportunity to test the tail rotor authority in a crosswind.
In both a steady hover and with sideways movement, the tail rotor proved effective. The semi-rigid rotor system two-blade, teetering uses control rods routed up the center of the shaft.
They connect to rocker arms to control the pitch of each blade. I later found out that a more than adequate tail rotor response was a design consideration, no doubt a good idea to keep low-time pilots out of trouble on windy days.
The Mini is not at all heavy for a helicopter, weighing in at pounds empty and having a maximum gross weight of pounds. It can carry up to pounds between pilot and cargo and up to 15 gallons of fuel—not a bad payload for a small helicopter.
Because the helicopter is so light, the pound rotor blades provide plenty of inertia to make it forgiving in autorotation. Anyone proficient at doing autos in an R22 will have no difficulties with the Mini a good feature because the vast majority of Mini customers will be low-time recreational pilots. The Mini has a wide seat that adjusts forward and aft, making for a comfortable fit. Rear stabilizer T-tail was modeled after the MDD helicopter.
The cyclic control was positioned perfectly. However, the collective was a little short and my elbow would sometimes bump the aft cabin wall. The Mini uses the horsepower, liquid-cooled, two-stroke Rotax engine. The engine features dual independent ignition systems, an electric starter, and automatic oil injection.
In cruise, the engine burns 5 gallons per hour of unleaded auto fuel, giving the helicopter three hours of endurance with no reserve.Your 1 Source for RC Models. Live chat.

Out of Stock.The Hummingbird is a single engine, single three-bladed main rotor type helicopter, with a tail rotor. The fuselage is made of aluminum and composites.
The Hummingbird is powered by a six cylinder aviation aircraft engine. These parts are manufactured to strict FAA design standards. When you finish building your Hummingbird kit helicopter you know you have a helicopter that was thoroughly engineered. The Hummingbird cabin sits comfortably four large people. The cabin is 55 inches wide, 56 inches high from floor to ceiling, and inches in length. Fly four people comfortably or two people, miles, with lbs. The many prefabricated components of the Hummingbird make the kit an easy project for the first time builder.
The average build time of only hours is one of the lowest in the kit helicopter industry. There is no welding or composite work, only minor fabrication, and all major components are pre-assembled.
The rotor blades for example come to you painted, balanced, and ready for installation. These blades have 7 degrees of twist to enhance performance. The first section consists of building the lower cabin. In this section, you will learn about real aircraft sheet metal fabrication and aircraft assembly. In the next section you will receive the upper cabin assembled.
The landing gear is next, and then the nose. Flight controls, electrical components, instrumentation and fuel systems are next for installation. The tailcone section is supplied assembled by the technicians at Vertical Aviation Technologies to assure uniformity.
The powerplant and gearboxes are assembled for installation when you receive them. The main rotor blades and tail rotor blades will then come to you completely ready to install.
They will have been painted and pre-balanced at our factory. The Hummingbird is a real pleasure to fly. Because of its inherently long tail, forward flight is very stable but very agile. The flight control system incorporates electric trim with force gradient spring pressure.
Stick forces are very light. Another appealing characteristic is the landing gear. It is such a pleasure to be able to taxi a helicopter and not have to hover. This landing gear design is only found in helicopters costing millions of dollars!With a five-bladed main rotor and your choice of a shp Rolls-Royce C20B or shp Rolls-Royce C20R turbine engine, the MD E offers unparalleled versatility for the broadest range of customer-defined missions.
