Hi everybody, this is the start of a photo series on the building of my Safari helicopter. The first batch is over a 3-month period, followed by irregular updates of the building process.I have written a document which describes in detail how to convert a Robinson R22 Governor for use with a Safari helicopter. You can download this MS-Word document, which includes pictures and detailed text, here:
I am trying to find more Web sites like mine, to add to my list of Links to Safary owners and builders.
If you know of any sites, please email me the URL at: chopper (at) bart.gen.nz.
Have a look at the Links to other Safari sites.
The frame of my Safari was build by Bruce Belfield in Tokoroa, New Zealand. He is the New Zealand broker for the Safari, and this was his third frame he build. He did an excellent job, and put in quite a few modifications to improve controls, pedals, cyclic, collective friction, etc.
I took a lot of pictures from Bruce's Safari, and also from
Steward's Safari, which is also build in Tokoroa.
I used these pictures myself to see what things are supposed to look like, while building my own helicopter.
From here on, irregular updates of my progress :)15 September 2002
