That’s extremely good work, Patrick! Unbelievable details. will follow with anticipation. Please sign me up! Welcome aboard iModeler!
It is grounded for now, awaiting a more robust part for the tail. Currently working on more scale details in the cockpit. Will post when ready. I’ve edited the original post to feature a couple more videos.

AMA Top Gun Nats are October 28th to November 1st. I do hope you plan on taking it (as I assume that at 1/6 scale it will be a flyer). The cannon and pilot animation is a nice touch. When I heard the turbine spool up I thought it might have been turbind powered. The way the rotor head spins up though I’m guessing electric? At any rate in this big scale the rotor blades should make a satisfying thump when they get up to speed! The markings make me want to dust off and post my Monogram Cobra in a much smaller 1/48 scale!
I am really amazed about all these workineg details, beautifully put together, Patrick @PatLeong!
Josh @jpatt1000: that’s a lovely 1/48 Cobra. You can treat us with a full presentation, if you so wish?
All the best, my friends!
Helmet sighting system is now connected to the ceiling rails via a magnet, which enables easy detachment during canopy removal.

Great job on this RC helo. I tried flying an RC helo once and found it very difficult. When you are done maybe you can post a video of this masterpiece flying.
George, I’ve done 3 tuning flights so far, without the scale bits. Didn’t want to risk them while dialing her in. Dummy weights were used to simulate the actual, at 28 lbs. https://youtu.be/2Nf4SsN_Rnw
Excellent details, Patrick!
Josh, I had the same Monogram Cobra. I never understood why the cockpit side glass were curvy and not flat.

That’s a simply amazing job, Patrick. This is a mean Cobra with a determined crew!
All the best!

Patrick, this is fantastic!
I loved watching the gun rotating around during the flight.

The Cobra is officially complete. More fast forward flight tests are needed over the next few weeks.
