Hello
I would like to share with you a new project that will be build by my son, Tal and my self together with Eyal Meron

Some time ago, After completing several scale projects like len mount Cobra and a Bell 212, we decided to build a new helicopter from scratch.

We wanted something big that can be applied to with a lot of scale details.

I worked many years on Israeli Air Force and U.S. NAVY CH-53 helicopters so it was not hard to decide – we are going to build an Israeli Air Force Sikorsky CH-53 “YASUR 2000” from scratch

The helicopter will be 1:8 scale

Length - 2.56 meters nose to tail. Approximate weight - 20 kg.
It will be (apparently) electric drive

To the best of our knowledge, there is no CH 53 RC Helicopter that size

The Mechanic system includes main rotor and tail rotor are design and will be manufacture from scratch by Eyal Meron. We have already seen the his capabilities (Aluet II)
The Helicopter will be equipped with a 6 blade fully detailed scale rotor head and a 4 blade tail rotor

Here are some pictures of the fuselage plug construction process

We used white foam with P 30 density

Next, the plug will be covered with 200 grams per square meter fiber Glass fabric

It just amazes me to watch these large scale projects come to life starting from a (huge) drawing on a (huge) piece of paper. Will be watching this one that's for sure!
Blade CP-Pro Brushless (in a corner somewhere) - TRex450 A109 4 Blade Head (on the shelf in pieces) - TRex600E Hughes 500E (actually on the bench) - TRex 600N e-conversion with clutch (currently pod and boom) - Hirobo 30 Lama SA315B Electric MRBIII 3 Blade Head

If it ain't broke...modify it!
