Ok, here's what I came up with for a new 90 degree drive, torque and PSI test were successful now to build another Huey to put in in to, original gear box assembly was 5 grams new on is only 3 grams.

Cheers,  Ray k.

Hello everyone, The Huey failed to fly due to the main gear box stripping out, my gear box design is a 50 50 shot, if I get the alignment perfect it works fine, if I am off on my alignment she strips out. This just wont do. I need to come up with something for a 90 degree drive that is not alignment critical. I am tinkering with something new that will not be alignment critical and that can't strip out so time will tell. When I come up with something I will let everyone know.

Cheers, Ray K.

I'm moving this thread to the rubber powered  helicopter category because this is more of a build than a cookup. 

Ray this is a fantastic model, thanks for sharing it with us!

Hello all, she is finished, she even has a nose cannon and all up weight is 54 grams without rubber, less than the VS300,  I will be doing flight tests in the next day or two.

Cheers,  Ray K.

Tail rotor blades done, rocket launcher done, just main rotor blades and a few little things and she is ready to fly.

Here's where things are at, pretty simple lay-out,  should be no problem for anyone to build.
