AEG RC Helicopter.

I'm rapid prototyping a mounting bracket to add an AEG gearbox to the underside of my RC helicopter.
What I'm wanting from you are suggestions of what gearbox to purchase. I need the lightest and most compact full auto gearbox I can find. It doesn't have to be super quality and the smaller the batteries I can use, the less weight ill have to contend with.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

I would start by testing how much weight you can lift with your Helicopter and still fly comfortably. Unless you have one of those huge RC Helicopters, I think you will find it's almost impossible to add any weight and not crash. Balance is anothing huge hurdle.

I hope you can prove me wrong! Good luck

Equipment used was a Skyjib 8 with retractable landing gear, Cinestar 3 axis gimbal with Radian stabilization, and a Nikon D800 with 24mm f/1.4G lens.
Though you may want to read up on regulations.. I thought I read whispers somewhere that more than 4 rotors or above a certain size, it ceases to be a hobby R/C craft and gets into that full blow 'aircraft' designation where it requires licenses.

I would probably use a P90 v6 gearbox.. it's compact and gravity assist fed... The second choice might be v7/m14... but it's a lot heavier.

id also say an aep is prolly yer only option. They are light enough to not cailuse too much issue with a larger sized chopper and you could likey invert it to use a hopper type design for ammo as opposed to the low cap spring mags they use out of the box. Would be prety neat to have an "uav" witu a cammera( thays been done) as well as some fire power.
you may also look into the RC tanks that shoot airsoft bb's and see what they are useing in those to shoot tue bbs with.
or another thing that may work would be just to have a small container that you could remotely open to just dump bbs out of like a bomber. Use some heavier ammo like .40's and even from a lower height they will feel the impact and if the delivery system had a small enough opening like a lil door that becomes a small ramp you could sort of stream the bbs out in a line to cover a larger area with them.
good luck with yer idea!

way too much unless you buy one of those 1000 doller plus multi prop choppers like u see in the pic with the subaru above. Technically you wouldnt need the m203 just the shell and some way to strike the valve but stull they are heavy. The weight of a gbb pistol lol

In this particular case you might want to look at some plastic electric pistols that most people avoid buying in canadian tire and walmart. Lightwieght and compactusually runs on AA batteries, you will just suffer with quality and replacement parts.

I think anything short of that camera copter won't really work... the footage from the camera still requires a lot of post production image stabilization, on top of that 3 axis gimble and fancy camera already doing a lot of stabilization. Keeping something on target at rang would be super difficult.

their website and footage if you want to see how shakey it is... that's not a cheap camera they're dangling either.

Probably the best avenue would be to use a clearsoft to have the weight as low as possible like here :

Well I had in mind magazine fed, and I suppose one of those Canadian Tire mini-style airsoft guns would do. I was just hoping for less troubleshooting. My chopper is an old Ikarus Eco 8, upgraded with carbon fibre frame, brushless motor, and more modern main blades. I'd guess it could comfortably lift maybe 3/4lb? It shows very little reduction in performance with my GoPro.
