Hi , only new here , looking for a main gear and canopy to restore an old Baron 50 I just purchased , it has a OS 60 in it so the engine mount is 60 size but is a 50 frame , old gear I believe is the 50 size as it has 86 teeth , I have been told the 60 baron has a 80 tooth ...
If any one has a Kalt omega pro out there, in bits, bent, or non of those.. I am always looking for some bits for one I have here.
Mine is pretty smart for such an old machine. These were the top dogs of the time and could actually put some of the modern machines to shame now.
Mind you, the 2mm piano wire tail drive is not the best of systems.. Lots of wind-up..
Check this shot..
Test hovering it tomorrow with a new OS61 wc fitted in today. And engine I have had new in it's box for ages.. Time to get it in the air.
I just need to sand down the canopy which has a rather dark paint scheme. Spray it the same as I used to have it many years ago. Pics of it back then are in my gallery.
