In that case, how's this? I hope it's not too big. Took me 2 hours to complete.

Thanks so much, Dave!
Travis,No issues and you're quite welcome.Dave
Oh goodie, I can't wait to see your illustration! I'm an MS.Paint veteran myself.
And just a technical nitpick, I know I have no engineering experience to back this up, but it sounds like your alternate airframe is going to be very heavy with iron tubes. And PVC tube you must be careful with, as there are lots of different variations of it. Some brittle, some super tough. Some far too flexible, some stiff as a board, though during my experience with building film props with PVC, I've learned that the more stiff kind (especially the plain white kind) break more easily, especially when exposed to the sun for a long period of time. Choose wisely, my friend.
Hi stingray,thanks for your comments..and the airframe certainly is gonna be heavy..but the pvc tail as you mentioned is prone to easy damage...that's why i have thought of using those iron tubes..i am aware that i must keep the weight of my chopper down..i will design the airframe in such a way that i will gain the best strength to weight ratio even with the iron tube..hopefully!..
Here is the rough design...
Looking great, tsheten8! The enclosed canopy is a nice touch.
I'm curious, what are you going to name and designate it? The Tsheten Model 8?
Hi Stingray...thanks for the comment.....But Gunship has recommended me not to use iron tubes...instead he has told me to use another kind of cheap aluminum which is used in making car canopies...still having some confusion about the airframe......
Regarding the engine,i have decided to buy a BMW motorcycle engine...only if Gunship and airfoil don't find a suitable one for the choppy...i don't know what they are upto..
Anyways,I'll keep posting on the forum as my project advances and takes shape into the aw choppy...Stingray,is it possible for you to find a bevel or spur-worm gearbox with transmission ratio of 3.6:1 and a couple MRC 5300 bearing in your place?..I am trying to find but can't find any...
Sorry, I live in a town smack dab in the middle of nowhere, so I can't find anything aircraft-related around here except for a small glider station down the road that's only open on Saturdays.
I think Darrell and Alan are better suited for the search for these parts.
hi Stingray,it's ok if you can't find the parts i specified you...here i am also trying to find the required parts...
By the way Stingray,did Darrell ever login?...I think he's on a vacation to meet his family...he's saying that he might be delayed a bit...wanted to know if he's back
He hasn't logged in for a surprisingly long time.
But it wouldn't be the first time an active member did so... Leela25 mysteriously dissappeared once, for almost three months in a row, but then she came back.
I guess just give him time.
Oh...Then he might be with his family......he told me that he'll take some time...
Stingray,I have known that the engine i was talking about uses diesel...is diesel engine suitable for aircrafts?....
And currently,i am searching for the sprocket required for the choppy...it is specified in the plan as Morse B SPROCKET 45T..do you or any member on the forum have any ideas about the technical specifications of this sprocket?...I am asking about it because i have found two sprockets...on has 48 teeth and the other has 46 teeth...which one is close to the specifications of the above mentioned sprocket?...are both of this sprockets suitable for the purpose?...and what about the diameter of the real stuff?..
Kind help is always expected
Attached herewith is a modified airframe for the choppy hobbycopter....

Hi everybody,here is a new design for the aw choppy i've designed...By the way,is there anything wrong in using iron tubes for the airframe?....One thing is for sure that it will weigh more...But will it affect the performance of the aircraft by a greater extent?...I don't think so....Give me some advice
Hey,this is especially for gunship...There is a factory in my country which manufactures a mild steel...it's lighter than ordinary steel and is used in making furnitures and other structures...I have made the tail rotor pedals out of it...Can i use this stuff for the whole airframe...
I wish I had engineering experience to give you more helpful advice. But I still think your airframe will be heavy with this material. Yes, the weight will affect it's performance. However, if you say it's lighter than normal steel than I guess you can give it a try.
Hi Gunship,what's up?....This time I have got a deal to make with you...You know I have decided to use aircraft grade aluminum...Will it be possible for you to shop them for me?....The deal is that I will send the expended amount monthly until I finally pay the whole amount to you...What do you say Gunship?...
And did you find anything for the choppy?...
I will send the list of the materials when you accept the deal...
TRUST ME PLEASE!!!!!!!!!
This company in Austrailia may have plans. I know they sell parts.http://www.propeng.com.au/catalog/Regards,Dave
Hi tshetan8 Peter here, if your going to use a bmw engine, if its air cooled you need to make some kind of forced air provision, the original triumph engine machine had cooling problems, good luck with the biuld.
Thanks for the advice friend...but I am not sure if i am really ging to use a bmw engine...i still haven't found one...can you help me with the project?...
For now.I have only some downloaded photos of a prebuilt aw 95...
Hi tsheten8, I want to apologise, I forgot to help you with Rotary Wing Forum issue. I'll get right on that soon, just let me finish up on some college work first.
Without a photo I couldn't really give you proper feedback, but a square diameter is definately the best shape for this airframe design. I'm glad to hear it's strong too, but hopefully at least a bit light as well.

Tsheten, do you have permission to use these photos of someone else's AW.95? If not, at least provide a link as to where you got them. Thanks.
