The MEE-KRO 280 (pronounced "me-krawh" in Spanish, meaning micro) is one of five models I designed around standard DC motors such as the Speed 280 and small Mabuchi N20 motors. This in conjunction with inexpensive construction materials and easy assembly techniques makes the Mee-Kro heli possible.
This is a continuation of my ongoing passion for flying model electric helicopters.
Micro Equipment consists of:
Construction Materials:All off-the-shelf hobby components such as balsa, thin plywood, piano wire, aluminum and brass tubing.
Mechanical Components: Ball bearings and gears available via various sources.
