Hi matey, It is here in Wiki. I appreciate that Wiki gets a little stick about accuracy etc, but it does have a list of sources and does say when a statement has no source/proof, so if it smells fishy check the bottom as it might give you the original source.

an side view an these seaking kits are very weak kits to fit in the gold eletric pickup pins as they are sprung loaded so a tight fit so i will have to strenghten the choppers outer undercart so they dont just snap off when pushing the eletric pins into the flightdeck gold sockets to give power to the lights an motors

Chris, you might want to ask Nick whether that tape is right for assembling fuselages. Some might not be correct  {-) 


Your work is looking fab. I saw that copper tape being used by someone at my old club and it worked well. He was running all sorts of gizmos through his and so can say your system should be just as effective with the tape. I think he had some sort of pad arrangement to make sure the tape and contacts always touched.

That's looking good Chris and it's good to see that you've managed to sort out the image hosting again.
Hope them mini motors arrive soon and you can get the tail rotor running ok.
