The puppet scale interior
Passengers carried to rear of pilot. Pilot position shown. Main feature is the navigation screen which shows the helicopter's position in relation to other known factors such as Spectrum agents.
Bled air from gearbox cooling intake feeds compressor which inflates airbags inside float to correct pressure for landing on sea, smooth or rough ground. The float has an outer skin of tough maylon bonded to the metal shoe on the top of the float.
Can be varied – provision for attachment of most kinds of guns but normally carries one only. This is situated immediately in front of the cockpit and fires high explosive rocket projectiles.
Air intakes (1) supply air to twin motors, one each side (7). Intake (2) supplies air to gearbox (6). The hot air then passes to exhaust port via various bleed-off systems (8) through the structural member (3). Gearbox transmits drive from gearbox to rotor head (4). the grill behind (5) masks the oil-cooling system.
Unusual wing-shaped ring tail gives great stability and in conjunction with the other airflow surfaces of the craft enables the plane to glide for a considerable way in the unlikely event of power failure.
Immensely strong box and tube construction. The interior of these structural members is put to several uses. The arrows show the passage of air from the vicinity of the motors to an exhaust port at the bottom. This air column is tapped for cabin heating, de-icing and float inflation.
