    Help me make a flying helicopter!

    Thats exactly how the Real thing works :-) Sorry i didnt see the last part of your post :-P

    Help me make a flying helicopter!

    yeah skyrate :P i mean do! lol anyway it's not a problem of how many blades we have....the main thing is the proportion between total weight and wing span....that's all.... i mean if a single rotor is'nt enough to make it take off (and i dont think so) it will be enough having a slope to help it gain speed :P anyway i was thinking to something like this to control the wing's vertical movement...i hope it's clear even if it's not finished yet :P

    zbjl that might work but maybe the wing area is too small....i'd probably scale it to the double or at least half more...i dont know.... if that works you'd probably need a bigger one to add all the rest of the controls :P i mean....that's not gonna take off until you don't have a Z axis controller to rotate the wing up or down....ill try to draw it in ldraw :)

    if it can push a car once you'll have a well shaped wing it's gonna lift itself due to portance generated by the wing :) the same thing that happends in kite surfing, you gain some speed and then rotate your wing and it makes you take off :P cant wait to see it in action dude !!!

    :P no that's not! we want free flight !!!

    Help me make a flying helicopter!

    yeah it would be great having radio control... anyway i don't think the glider is gonna go that fast :P and with a big wing it's gonna be able to carry more weight... but: if the glider works the next step is gonna be an airplane :D cmon this is possible :P

    Help me make a flying helicopter!

    to me that's not a problem that big....i mean, it would be enough running after the glider....zblj is not supposed to make it fly high right :P? if it flyes even at a height of 1 meter that will be great anyway lol

    Help me make a flying helicopter!

    ehm...why? :D it's enough havin two m motors with a worm gear to control the 4 directions of the wing :P

    Help me make a flying helicopter!

    well probably we're gonna need to run after the thing XD

    i've found something interesting :P http://www.dimensionsinfo.com/dimensions-of-a-hang-glider/

    Help me make a flying helicopter!

    yeah but make it quickly :D i can't wait to see it lol !!! hmmm i don't think so...it will only cause adding weight to the model....dunno, maybe it's a good idea maybe not :P

    Help me make a flying helicopter!

    you know what? before of everything, you should try putting your propeller on a chassis with wheels and all the power functions pieces to see if it can reach a reasonable speed ...if it's so then you can worry about how to build the delta wing :D

    Help me make a flying helicopter!

    yeah cmon guys! we're not talking about using different motors...or pieces....it's just using a piece of plastic in the same way everyone uses rubber bands :P

    Help me make a flying helicopter!

    maybe not!....have a look at this video... maybe we could make the wings like these probably it's enough that the frame is "sealed" inside of the wings so there's not gonna be much turbolence

    Help me make a flying helicopter!

    this wing can lift over 100kg....with the right proportion yours will lift easily 3-400g :)

    Help me make a flying helicopter!

    here it is....i apologize for the quality of this drawing but im in a hotel room sit on the bed and i've drawn it with a wacom placed on my knees :D anyway... i think it's quite important having the plastic around it tightly firmed....it will give more strenght to the frame and will generate a better portance

    lol dude you came half an hour late :P

    Help me make a flying helicopter!

    maybe: the frame of the whole entire model should be made of axles and connectors, so it will light and solid, and you'd need to wrap the frame with some light plastic sheets....probably it could be good the plastic wrap that's used to store food the main problem is getting the proportions right... i was starting to build it when i first saw your post but then i had to fly to london to work :( anyway, you should start with a small glider that can take off ....if it will, and it will :D, we could start thinking on how to add PF to make the plane roll and maybe land without crashing if you give me some minutes im gonna draw what i mean :) yeah that's not bad but im not sure about the wing's shape and the way he put plastic on it.... plastic should be wrapped really tight around frame

    Help me make a flying helicopter!

    i know anyone is focused on helicopters...but i was wondering: if that motor can lift itself, probably it could also drag a wheeled vehicle, so: what if this wheeled vehicle has wings that can generate portance :P? i mean, to me a lego airplane could easily fly and bring with itself all the power functions that it needs.... that wouldn't be a matter of how much a motor can spin, it would only be a proportions problem to solve

    Small Fast Chassis

    why hasn't anyone attached a gearbox to that motor? i guess im gonna do that once i'll get back from england in march :D i'll build a really fast car lol

    [HELP] Pneumatic Engines

    i was "studying" how to make a pneumatic engine out of the small cylinders we got...let me check if i can find that topic :)
  22. yeah no rubber bands at all...there's a little bit of snap due to the knob gear...but it's not too much, we definitely need the servo eheh
  23. In the video you see me shifting from 1st gear to 3rd and that was my intention :P it's true that it doesnt snap so good as the sheepo's version, but it's also true that you can shift very quickly from a gear to another... we just need an idea to use it with a servo motor, that will solve every problem! i'll try to think to something lol
