MIA Scale Fuselages and Upgrades.
Flying with Scale Fuselages Tips
If your helicopter is not lifting with our scale bodies this is
attributed to them not having a good battery, properly charged one, some of the motors
may be out of performance, or the mechanics are binding.
With a fairly brand new or carefully flown and maintained helicopter, you should
be able to fly them with the MIA Scale bodies using the stock
battery. However in some instances it is recommended the use of
higher capacity batteries, for an extra level of power punch.
About flying scale fuselages with "bling", please Keep in mind
that as neat as it is to have all metal upgrades, if you want
true, in scale "Performance" you need to consider shedding some of
this extra weight. Consider also that many metal parts are not a
necessity and in some cases they hinder performance by nature of
extra weight or specific design. The same can be said just about
any aftermarket or upgrade product depending what you want
to achieve and desire. This has to be carefully considered when deciding to upgrade for specific performance, durability
and or a
more pleasant or different look. Consider also that there may be
some tradeoffs when you go beyond the OEM stock setups.
If you must insist on having bling and still expect the helicopter
fitted with a scale fuselage to perform as good as with the stock
setup, I rather you simply not consider the scale fuselage. We
cannot make the canopies and accompanying LG too light as this
compromises mechanical integrity, but we are not making them
injection molded either, as although this results in amore rigid
body, it can also end up being
heavier than vacuum formed parts. With Scale bodies and canopies
it is best to have a flexible lightweight but strong part,
for example, we use
G10 fiberglass plate, for the LG, for these benefits also. But in
general, each manufacturing and material selection has its
benefits when used properly.
So weight, material selection,
strength, durability, high
detail and appearance, is all considered when we design the bodies from the
ground up to fit the requirements of the specific helicopter
flight envelope, size and power
potential to be fitted to.
Phantom Combo Kit
Fitted to the mCPX
Great Custom fit of the MIA MD500E for the mSr on the new mCP X
helicopter, done by this customer. MIA Micro-FLIGHT will shortly
have a revamped version of our MIA MD500E scale fuselage to fit
the E-Flite Blade mCP X helicopter so customers can install over
the mechanics without having to do any custom fitting.
