Hi Ray, I was checking your models,
Finishing is unvelievable, I was inspired to unearth some past heli projects I had.
I designed  one many years ago, and it was a great flyer, even able to "glie" back to my hand, that really surpised me, I was expecting the chopper just to fall in absence of power.
Ray do you have some flight videos?
Cheers from Uruguay, Im delughted just watching the pics! Smiley

Thanks Tom, I am hoping to finish the plans on the Sea sprite this weekend so I can start building her soon.

Cheers, Ray K.

Hello Terry,

It is an Autogyro, I have not built up the nerve to fly it yet but I will make and attempt as soon as I can walk again.

Ray,

Wow! That is outstanding with detail.  Does it fly?  A gyrocopter?

Ray,
Plans and drive kit might be adequate.  But what do y'all think?

To those who are interested in kits when they become available, laser cutting for what I would produce may not be cost effective because of small quantity's that would be ordered because of low interest for this type of model ( I learned this lesson with the Hiller Commuter. ) So to keep kit costs down all future kits that I may do will have print wood parts instead of laser cut parts, just an FYI. Feed back on this would be welcomed.

Cheers, Ray K.  Wink

I am doing the UH2-2A North Vietnam version only because the upper engine housing is much simpler to make, ( to save time ) but it can be easily converted into the Navy Seasprite version.

I did a lot this weekend on the plans, full side view structure is done and I am finishing off the top view, transmission layout is done, should be ready to start building next weekend if all goes well, I am very happy with the way things are looking at the moment, will post pictures of plans when done.

Here is the new helicopter that I will put this gear box in, I have started on the plans and will start another thread when I start building in a week or two.
