    Yeah there is no room due to the controls as Don said. Joe has molded the two back side storage compartments which is nice. I want to also in close the bottom all the way back to the back storage boxes and make the floor flat. This can be done very easily due to the way the peddles are designed which I like and most everyone else don't. Than you would have floor storage as well as the two back storage compartment.

      After many hours of building parts and paint work. She's back on her feet. We would have had the engine in, but I forgot to order the engine bolts. LOL!!!

            Charles,
            Wish he could have stayed longer, we would have gotten more done. We want to do it where he can get the repairman's certificate for it when it's done.

            Brian,
            This will be the best one, and the prettiest one yet when it's done. Well next to mine.LOL!!!

                  Mh-1 upgrade update

                  Hello MH-1 Upgrade followers. After many hours of working on my bird John and I finally got it back up on it's skids. I have every new part bought and ready to install. Now it's time to work and get her finished.
                  Here are some pictures of our progress. John already posted some pictures.
                  I disassembled the upper rotor assembly. Pressed in new brass bushings. Ready to install all new bearings, seals, bolts, nuts, washers, etc....under John's supervision of course. Rick will have the rear transmission done soon as well. Rick finished my 0 time engine and is ready to install as soon as we get the motor mount bolts.
                  I will keep updating as we progress in my upgrade.

                    Hi Kevin,

                    If you are not going to need them, would you mind selling me your original cast pitch arms? I am in need of one, but I'll take both off you.

                    Cheers,

                    Francois

                        Bryan,

                        I really don't know.....It was on John's workbench.....Let's let John describe it for you...However, it may be some secret machined upgrade piece that he will never tell you about..

                                That's a Gopro apparatus. Mount the camera on it set the axle radius and pull it with a piece of long fishing line and get a ground view up circle of what you are filming.
