R/C Helicopter project


#85

Here we have part of the tail rotor Gearbox, along with the rotor shaft and bevel gear.


#86

The tail rotor gearbox is complete and in its approximate location.


#87

And now the tail fin. The only purpose on a R/C Helicopter is to prevent the tail rotor from striking the ground.


#88

Here are a few of the parts that will make the tail rotor change pitch. There are still 6 or parts to model not counting fasteners.

Then there is still the question if I will attempt a canopy, tail blades, main rotor blades and possibly even the motor and exhaust pipe. This is a large model with hundreds of parts and is physically large.


#89

Here is a quick render of it done on my laptop.


#90

Here we have a couple more parts that contribute to the movement of the tail rotor. Next is the tail rotor hub and blade grips.


#91

Here we have some renders of all parts assembled now. This is of all modeled parts to date.


#92

Here we have a short 3 second video exploding the view of the components of the tail control box that I have been working on. Basically it is to show how many parts are in a small part of the model.

Here is a still photo as well.

Hi
Thank you for sharing this project. I am finding the process fascinating.
The level of detail in the full renders is amazing.
Please keep them coming.
Best wishes
Paul

Nice :slightly_smiling_face: it is

@Paulr @hamedtopic Thank you. I am enjoying the process as well. It’s a huge learning experience for me. And truthfully I don’t believe I would have got there without Shapr3D. It’s this app that got me to understand 3D Modeling. I have put hundreds of hours into learning more and more. And will be exploring animating the projects too.

I still have a few more parts to model. And have some revisions to make. But then I have the humanoid robot to finish too. And of course I have some other ideas for a next project.

The comments, likes and advice is what keeps me going. So I greatly appreciate everyone who takes the time to look, like and reply. It’s a form of motivation.

I also read every post, no matter the topic.


#96

I now have the tail rotor hub and grips modeled. They are in their approximate location. Here are a couple screenshots.


#97

Here are a couple more renders. These may be the last ones for a bit. The project is at the end and has very little planned parts left.

I need to figure out how to model the canopy. I may add blades, both main and tail. And if I am anxious enough or there are enough requests, I may attempt to model the engine and exhaust pipe. I may also play around with some of the parts colors.
