Helicopter Rotor Head
« on: December 10, 2007, 05:02:16 PM »
This is my first "Major" project.
A self designed Complete Rotor Head for a mini indoor helicopter (Walkera Dragonfly DF4)
All machined from bar and plate aluminium.
To give you an idea of scale... All the bolts are M2

Very Good.
 (Edit)

Was in a hurry and didn't get to give it justice the first go round.  ;D
That is one of the nicest projects I have seen. To do it justice, I think you need to take a picture of it beside something everyone can relate too like a match, playing card, or something. I truely appreciate it because I have seen one of those and they are very small. Great job, I'm impressed.
