Requirements your helicopter should meet

 

Are you wondering if the Soko Helical/Soko Kit does fit on your heli? It does! No exceptions!

  

Read on for more details.

 

Detailed requirements


The setup procedure relies on two mounting positions of the Soko Helical/Soko Kit.

 

First position

 

Soko Kit for no head stopper helicoptersThe Soko Helical/Soko Kit is mounted as main blade. Now open the linkage of the blade grip and turn the blade grip until it rests on the side of the rotor head. On a DFC head style just open the linkage of the swash plate, flip it up and rest the upper part of the linkage on the side of the rotor head.

The only important thing is, that the blade grip itself is stable during a full turn of the rotor head. In other words: The blade grip should not rotate during a full turn of the rotor head.

The Soko Helical is designed to imitate all five main blade root sizes which are:


• 3mm root thickness and M2 screw (equals standard 250 main blade size)
• 4.5mm root thickness and M3 screw (equals standard 360/450 size)
• 10mm root thickness and M3 screw (equals standard 500 size)
• 12mm root thickness and M4 screw (equals standard 550/600/630 size)
• 14mm root thickness and M5 screw (equals standard 700/770/800 size)

 

If your helicopter's blade grip openings don't support those root thicknesses use shims to make it fit. Your heli kit probably came with the shims as the manufacturer knows you might want to use standard blades some day.
