Super scale monster helicopter

Super scale monster helicopter

The IRCHA Jamboree is the place to be if you love RC helicopters, and rotor-craft of all types and sizes were in abundance at this year’s event. One standout is this 40-pound monster, the handiwork of  Joel Rosenzweig from Marlborough, NH. His IRCHA Scale winning Erickson Air Crane S64F weighs in at 40 pounds, has a 6 blade rotor head and 4 blade tail rotor, and uses four 5S 5,000mAh battery packs which gives it a 9-minute flight time at 950 main rotor rpm. This looks more scale than the full size version! (For more IRCHA news and photos, click here!)

  3. An excellent scale reproduction. Enjoy flying it.

  4. Here is a link to Hiroki Ito’s 3 bladed helicopter at IRCHA.


    He is using standard 600 mm blades – but 3 of them for better performance. Therefore, for the TT E720 I would try 3 – 700 blades – but the lightest ones you can find. Keep up the rotorspeed prior to liftoff, and during flight, and I would think they should work well. Let us know how you make out.

  5. where could i find one like that i like Erickson air Crane S64F our can you buy them in remote control

  6. At one time I made main rotor and tail rotor parts for these in real life. I laser cut then remachined the ribs for Erickson air crane . Now I want to find one in an RC and paint it in my company colors. Where can I find one? I retired and closed my shop. Please email me at cavalino328@yahoo.com
