Hi Marlin,

Yes the blades are flexible enough to allow them to flap up or down as well as fore or aft as needed, blades are 1/16" balsa sanded to an airfoil shape so they can flex quite well.

Cheers, Ray K.

Please!  We're begging you!  At least remove all the furniture from the room.  Hate to see your excellent work destroyed against a chair or table leg!

All your stuff looks great!  Did you ever try building a Pitcairn?

Ok, tried a power up test with rotor blades on and I noticed that the rotor hub assembly is not true, this caused the blades to track uneven and resulted in wobble,  Tongue easy to fix, making a new rotor hub, I will be ready to try again tomorrow. While I am at it I am going to make an access hatch to the main gear box assembly as well. I will post pictures tomorrow.

Cheers, Ray K.
