The Alouette III from VARIO is a 1150 size scale helicopter. You can power this remote-controlled model helicopter with turbine propulsion. Sud Aviation (later Aérospatiale) is the creator of the man-carrying version.This model is an impressive helicopter, due to its enormous size it is designed for turbine mechanics only. For transport, the entire tail is removable. A ready-built mechanics support frame is included. The mechanics support is set rearward so a full scale cockpit interior can be fitted. The model's take-off weight is considerably higher than that of the Lama, and this has necessitated a new rotor head linkage for the recommended mechanical system, a larger-diameter tail rotor and an extension of the tail rotor shaft system.For VARIO's 1150 Alouette III we recommend a maximum main rotor speed of 850 rpm.Available for:Turbine Mechanics 1002/66For turbine Jakadofsky Pro 5000, clutch bell t. 24The Alouette III fuselage kit for the mechanics Ord.No. 1002/66 can be ordered with Ord.No. 3500. Kit Ord.No. 3501 already includes this mechanics.The turbine version fascinates by the smell of kerosene, a gently starting rotor, accompanied by the unmistakable sound of a turbine. Until the electrical power revolution in radio controlled model construction, turbines were the most powerful drives. In terms of flight times, turbines are still superior to electro-flight.
