Default NEW RE-Design SA-315B LAMA CCG SAR

Got my WINGS & TAG on heli !
Lt.Cmdr. SW. "LAMAHORSE" he,he

Of the LAMA SA-315B (SE) CCG SAR Mission Leader Helicopter Unit
Radio Control Electric converted Helicopter Scale LAMA New Design Project.

For this year,

"40th Anniversary" of the Aerospaciale LAMA SA-315B

I decided to make a complet (MAKE OVER) on this flying Rc HIROBO Electric converted machine helicopter from a Aerospaciale replica.

With all respect I've replicate this NEW design LAMA & got inspired from the wonderfull real full size flying machine it self. I felt for it, after seen on visual via YouTube those LAMA from Swiss country with their flying performance.

First thing I notice was the sound that turbine was making. It cut me hard and felt to see more video's that could be found in the Europe regions. Got to see many LAMA going up and down the hill and posing their LAMA at edges of mountain peak, and very close to DANGER event. But with such agile pilot doing all the right movements to handle this LAMA like a ladie was a ball to watch.


So then decide to order a HIROBO LAMA scale rotorhead kit and to start a new design for this year
40th anniversary of this LAMA SA-315B helicopter.

Started project in Nov 2008.

Product: LAMA SA-315B HIROBO Scale MRB-III rotorHead system
Flying weight : 10.5 Lbs

MRB-III RotorHead scale 3 Blader
Batt EVO 6s1p 4900 mah
Phoenix HV85 ESC
Motor Scorpion HK-4020-910Kv
Castle Bee 10amp on separate battery

Radio use as transmiter:

JR X 9303
9 Channel Computer Radio
System with Specktrum 2.4GHz DSM Technology

For me,
It was a return in the Rc hobby after 20 years absence. Was in for 7 years in Rc planes befort and did want something new to my knowledges to build with all that new technology around.

After seeing the full size LAMA doing all the duty use for this machine,,, and loved the turbine sound of it,,, decide to go for it and on the way,, met a great man, and builder, and flyer scale instructor guy that became my best buddy. He supported me in all my doing,, & to keep me focus on the good things for that new LAMA look. But he never did try to change what ever I try on the LAMA while designing and testing parts add-on's of all sort's.

For the all electronic's and flying power system,, my buddy did supervise all purchases,,, and put it all together for me. The test pilot is my buddy and he did a wonderfull job on the setting and ajusting. A master in those precises helicopter scale. I was in good hand indeed, and shure did appreciated at best and gratitude him alote.

He also made some part's like the wires cutters and other supported scale making.

After a year on the making and finding the right system's to be converted electric's
This New Look design LAMA is having a great popularity result with the public till now.

I do much appreciate this ,, and my buddy who as work hard on the engineering making mechanic fit system's together for the best result as possible to be flying scale procedures flights missions.

The result speak by it self !

First time for my self flying a Rc helicopter ever, but what a instructor I've got,,, the best to learn from. No stabilisation system use on the Scale MRB III Rotorhead 3 blader LAMA for me to fly..
Did over a year on flight SIM at many type helicopters. That did help alote ...

Superb machine to own and fly ...

On my 65 mins hovering now :

Wind correcting, flight path hovering approach on helipad,
stabilisation exercises, side ways travel, with rudder varieties in degrees angles procedures opposite direction, backward flying, and so much more. At the moment I try the LAMA at varieties of angles and altitude in front and side of me. Not into foward flight yet, just a fiew feets I do go foward. Should be getting close to acheive them,, but shure not in a rush,, and remaining on hovering and travel till I feel comfortable anought to go forward flight and return towards me.

But all is coming along fine with the training,,, even flew the LAMA on her own private heliport
in our back yard. The last flight was in some strong wind for hovering,,, first time for me in that kind of wind,,, but my mentor master builder and scale flyer instructor on helicopter Rc was confident in my knowledges to handle it fine. So it when fine in that strong wint at home,,, and feeling much better knowing I can't handle that kind of wind if needed.

More will come on some other time...

Today Photography made by my buddy scale flying instructor.
Thanks Buddy for those wonderfull pictures !

Enjoy Mates!

Knew it would make some peoples happy on that LAMA final result, or almost finsih product.

Remain to be add will be the tail rotor scale 3 blader and the lights system with all lights and strobes and even interior instruments panel light.

The all interior is done as a scale working office.
Soon a full lens photoshooting will be done on a water front water canal environement. Will make her look even more scale.

At the moment I am at making very small detail's and creating them for my helicopter.

All is coming along very well and fine till now. I have also created the full serunding set devises since last year and to make my LAMA more appealling and close to real life helicopter while be in their hangar or helipad environement.

Will link photo albums soon of all those devises I have made for my LAMA since past year on the making.

This LAMA will fly in the winter also with all the snow band serunding her own private small heliport and located in my backyeard estate and facing a 1/2 miles flying free zone to enjoy.

At the moment I work on small detail's and will continue till satisfy!

Keep those comments coming,,, that is a reward for any that have done such project !

Follow photos by me.
Enjoy theses photos for now Buddies
more will come soon...
