    RAF hang test after mods

    The RAF has two plates, one on each side of the upper mast, that the rotor head is mounted to. There are two bolts holding these plates on - an upper bolt and a lower bolt. By shifting the hole fore or aft on either of the bolts will shift the angle of the rotor head. These are the plates I was...

    RAF hang test after mods

    Thanks for your feedback. I have heard of others who either added weight up in the nose of the aircraft, or else the pilot was very heavy and facilitated the proper balance. I just had not heard of others building new cheek plates with different balance attachments. Good to hear your success...

    Rudder position with extended keel

    I am building an RAF 2000 and am dropping and extending the keel. I am an inexperienced pilot with the RAF. I have the keel extended 20" for the HS. I am curious if the vertical fin/rudder can also move back without risk of rotor blades striking it. And if so, any thoughts on how far. Thank You

    What generation hub bar is this?

    Thanks all for your feedback. I was hoping that being a later model year it would be current version. I'm hearing doubts in that, so I will do some research. Thank again, James
