K&S 818 rc helicopter rotor head.

From '90 years this interesting head released by japanease K&S for 60 class helicopter. It is a full aluminium head.

Of couse you can use this head on heli of that time so Kalt 60 and Hirobo Freya of course. The most interesting thing is the flapping system of blades. So If a blade go up the blade of other side go dowm. The two sides are connected by a particular sled.

I think this system is very helpful during movement, of helicopter, in the hovering.

Tamiya F1 Ferrari F60

I bought this Tamiya Ferrari F1 in kit form about two years ago. Only now i build it and paint with a classic red. Then i added an old Team Orion Chrome touring 12x2 ep motor and a ThunderTiger E-Speeder esc.

The Orion motor is old and used but it should be very fast on this car.
