Kazmirski models for REFLEX

Ed Kazmirski was the first (1960) model aerobatics world champion with his Orion, which became nearly as world-famous as later his Taurus (1962). Known world-wide is also the trainer Tauri (1963), but not his last competition models Taurus 2 (1964) and Simla (1965). It is interesting to reconstruct and understand the development of those models. Please read the documents belonging to the models, either just here as a pdf file (see below next to the models) or after installation! Links to these comprehensive descriptions will then be found in the menu 'Programs-REFLEX-models'. Demo flights (hit F9 in REFLEX) will show typical flight behavior.

Simla original
Simla was Kazmirski's last model, really big (102 in wingspan, later 95 in) but lightweight, kind of an aerobatic motorglider looking impressive in the air. Many versions, also with modern drives; description either here (Simla.pdf, 2.1M) or after installation! Including demo flight (hit F9 in REFLEX).

Kwik-Fli for REFLEX

Kwik-Fli Mk III by Phil Kraft, 1967 aerobatic world-champion model. A great classic, 40th-anniversary edition as REFLEX XTR model. The model is still up-to-date as a most basic, typical design of a classic pattern model, today more called a sport model. Please read the document belonging to the model, either here (KwikFli.pdf, 5.5M) or after installation! A link to this comprehensive description will be found in the menu 'Programs-REFLEX-models'. Demo flights (hit F9 in REFLEX, 'Kwik-Fli...') will show typical flight behavior.

Kwik-Fli Mk III 'original'
Kwik-Fli Mk III, in the original paint scheme, with a .60 glow engine without muffler. With center-of-gravity and decalage as per the plans as a stable flying 'original', alternatively with more back c/g and almost no decalage as a more neutral and 'crisp' setup.
>download package installer (7.3M, 2014-09-06, 1538 )
Kwik-Fli Mk IV 'taper'
Kwik-Fli Mark IV, meaning Mk III with tapered wing. With not much decalage as nearly neutral version 'original'. Purpose of the modifikation was better flick ability, which is really better only in the 'crisp' setup. The slightly different paint scheme was traditional as well.
>download the complete Kwik-Fli package, see above
Kwik-Fli Mk III 'enhanced'
Kwik-Fli Mk III as still flown by Phil Kraft around 1970. With more powerful engine with muffler as well as retractable landing gear, hence noticeably more weight. As 'retracts' version balanced neutrally since it's considerably faster and more agile than the 1967 World Champonship version.
>download the complete Kwik-Fli package, see above
Kwik-Fli Mk III 'retracts'
Kwik-Fli Mk III, only for comparison also with more powerful engine and retractable landing gear as 'retracts' version, but only slightly more weight than the original version. Almost as neutral and fast flight characteristics as later pattern models.
>download the complete Kwik-Fli package, see above
Kwik-Fli Mk IV 'retracts'
Kwik-Fli Mk IV as well with slightly more weight, more powerful engine and retractable landing gear as version 'retracts'. Of course even faster and doing even better flick rolls and spins.
>download the complete Kwik-Fli package, see above
Kwik-Fli Mk IV 'rotary'
Kwik-Fli Mk IV with retractable landing gear and rotary engine as version 'rotary'. By means of this engine and of reduced fuselage drag, again faster but still not a "rocket" ship.
>download the complete Kwik-Fli package, see above
Kwik-Fli Mk V 'rocket'
Kwik-Fli Mk V (that's what I call it) with retractable landing gear, rotary engine, and a thinner wing as version 'rocket'. Now the model is a "rocket" and flies "ballistic", but thanks to flaps can land like the original version.

Kwik-Fli 'Mark II'
Kwik-Fli Mk II, predecessor of Mark III with the same wing. Shorter tail moment arm and smaller vertical tail and elevator show in the flight behavior. With a small decalage stable balanced like the original, with a '.45' engine and a '.60'. The paint scheme was normal for the model.
>download the complete Kwik-Fli package, see above
Kwik-Fli 'Mark I'
Kwik-Fli Mk I, first version of all with bigger wing and more weight. Same wing loading, but rather short tail moment arm and small vertical tail and elevator still don't give optimum flight behavior. With a small decalage stable balanced like the original. The paint scheme was really used for the model.
>download the complete Kwik-Fli package, see above
'Bar-Fli'
Bar-Fli, alternate model for the World Championships. A bit smaller and lighter than Mark III, but with the same .60 engine. Therefore more dynamic and better in wind, in addition to other advantages. With not much decalage as nearly neutral version 'original' and as completely neutral version 'crisp'.

Learn model flying with REFLEX

On this subject, "Learn model flying with a simulator and especially with REFLEX XTR", I have compiled frequently asked questions and my answers on them in a quite long text file. If you are interested look below to read or download it.

The model which I used in the 1960s when trying to learn model flying is available for the simulator, together with a comprehensive description and demonstration flights - just for nostalgic understanding. The demo flights show typical flight behavior of the three model versions. A version with all controls, flaps, and electric drive is even a modern beginners model.

The Beginner - shaking in his shoes Fear of Flying? Don't fret, there's the simulator! But how does it work? What to learn with which models? How about landing gear, flaps, side thrust? (Basically for powered airplane models only.)
The illustrated text, after installation found in the menu 'Programs-REFLEX-models':

REFLEX models without shape

Models without shape means that I didn't create a model file (mod file) for these models. Here I'm offering the flight behavior (parameters, par file), usually also drive sounds, sometimes also a simple replacement shape (dummy).

Jerry's Big Boy
Jerry's Big Boy by Fun-Fly champion Jerry Smith, ARF by Morris Hobbies. Really much fun with a still well-mannered model. Parameters only, with a replacement 3D model (appearance), but for 5 different drives with correct sound each, und for electric drive. No text file belonging to the model so far, please read the thread on RCU instead!

Heli Models for REFLEX by Eric Fague

Eric Fague ("Ericoptère") from Switzerland built some nice helicopter models for REFLEX and published them on www.RC-Sim.de several years ago. Actually, they are nice even today and still worth to be flown in the simulator. For the REFLEX versions from 5.05 on they had been brushed up and are now - by permission of Eric Fague - re-published here.

HIROBO Shuttle Plus 30 HIROBO Shuttle Plus 30. An advertizing claims that more than half of all model heli pilots worldwide have learned to fly with a Shuttle. That may be even true, particularly since the model is still being sold for 20 years now (2013). Eric's realistic REFLEX model is of 2003. It is really set up for beginners with its 1400 main rotor rpm. The blade pitch is limited to -8° and +8°, but at least you may flip the heli on its back.
>download package installer (1.7M, 2014-05-12, 132 )
HIROBO Shuttle Plus 30 on floats HIROBO Shuttle Plus 30 on floats. Wide undercarriages with inflatable floats made from plastic film have been used quite often by rank beginners. With them, the heli can slide around on the ground without toppling over. Today, rather two crossed sticks with table tennis balls at their tips are simply strapped to the skids. Rotor rpm and blade pitch are the same as on the skids version.
>download the complete Shuttle package, see above

KYOSHO Concept 30 SE on floats KYOSHO Concept 30 SE on floats. This was the equivalent beginners heli by KYOSHO. Eric's cute and realistic model is of 2003 as well. It has a semi-scale body (fuselage) as an addition (Bell 206 Jet Ranger). This is intended to be not only pretty but above all more visible. After all, for beginners the perceptability of the heli's attitude is especially important. That's also why the rotor blades have stripes that look like circles when the rotor is rotating.
>download package installer (775K, 2014-05-12, 115 )
KYOSHO Concept 30 SE on floats KYOSHO Concept 30 SE on floats. This version for rank beginners is appropriately set up with only 1400 rotor rpm. The blade pitch is asymmetrically limited to -2° and +10°, so not suited for inverted flight. The heli moves quite sluggishly and docile with this setup. By the way, I prefer this green version on floats. And by the way, it's good also on snow and ice and of course it even "floats" (for instance in the "Baggersee" water scenery).
>download the complete Concept package, see above
KYOSHO Concept 30 SE on skids KYOSHO Concept 30 SE on skids. For this version I like the blue painting better, for whatever reason. Anyway, this version with 1500 U/min rotor rpm and blade pitch between -2° and +12° is noticeably more agile and more fun, and so it is more instructive as well.
>download the complete Concept package, see above
KYOSHO Concept 30 SE on skids KYOSHO Concept 30 SE on skids. A beginner should switch to the "proper" version on skids right after the first successful sliding attempts on the ground. The floats version is merely intended to avoid frustration (and in reality damage, above all) in the very beginning.

Aérospatiale SA 315B Lama - Heliswiss Aérospatiale SA 315B Lama of Heliswiss. Eric Fague's REFLEX models are from 2003 as well. The Lama is an alpine helicopter and therefore used especially in Switzerland. This model version is quite big.

Aérospatiale SA 315B Lama - Air-Glaciers Aérospatiale SA 315B Lama of Air-Glaciers. This version is smaller but otherwise the same, except the color scheme of course. By the way, Eric used xmodder to convert FMS models by "Logic Wizard" into these Reflex models.

Aérospatiale SA 315B Lama - G2loq Aérospatiale SA 315B Lama by G2loq. This version seems to be made not by Eric, but by G2loq. Anyway, it's even smaller, the model has no company markings, and it has equipment containers under the fuselage. Otherwise it's the same as the other two Lamas.

Hughes 500D - Magnum Hughes 500D like in the TV series Magnum. Eric Fague's REFLEX model is from 2003. The pilot in the TV series, T.C., is sitting in the fully equipped cockpit. The pilot's (right) door can be opened with the landing gear switch. The model is quite big and well-mannered. The big body with eye-catching paint scheme and the cross-striped main rotor blades make for good visibility. I always conceived it as a good beginners heli.
>download package installer (2.3M, 2014-07-27, 46 )
Hughes 500D Hughes 500D in colorful livery typical for PEKA and on high skids. This model (2004) is smaller and doesn't have striped main rotor blades, but is yet a good beginners model as well. It has interior equipment and pilot but the doors can't be opened. Eric placed the pilot in the right seat, as usual, but that seems to be not right for the Hughes 500D, according to experts in the Web.

Hughes 500E - PEKA Hughes 500E as replica of the PEKA Hughes by Günter Knipprath (also here). This was one of the first model helicopters with JetCat turbine drive, big with 2 meters main rotor diameter. The REFLEX model from 2005 shows the innards of the original model with the turbine. Typical PEKA paint scheme, German registration. All these models have the high skids.

Hughes 500E - PEKA Hughes 500E analog to the PEKA Hughes. An original's Breitling paint scheme and Swiss registration. The flight characteristics were not adapted to the recent REFLEX versions and thus partially unusual, but not too bad. I virtually set a flybarless system in the parameters, now the models fly very good.
>download the complete Hughes 500 package, see above
Hughes 500E - PEKA Hughes 500E analog to the PEKA Hughes. Yet another original's paint scheme and Swiss registration. Besides I rendered the real rotor blade count for even more realistic flight characteristics. Hence the Breitling version's 2-blade tail rotor is marginal and needs more rpm. This version's 4-blader is all right with less rpm.
>download the complete Hughes 500 package, see above
MD 520N - PEKA MD 520N analog to the PEKA Hughes. Simply in blue with Swiss registration. The NOTAR system as a tail rotor replacement can not be rendered in REFLEX and is in turn replaced by equivalent tail rotor parameters as realistic as possible. I set some expo on all four PEKA versions.

Bell 205 - LA County Fire Bell 205 of the Los Angeles County Fire Department. In 2004, Eric Fague converted this detailed model from a FMS model by "Logic Wizard" into a REFLEX model using xmodder. It's quite big (1.85 m rotor diameter) and heavy (8.5 kg weight). The big body with its paint scheme and the cross-striped rotor blades make for good visibility. That's why also this model could be a good beginners heli.

Bell 206 - Ayers Rock Helicopters Bell 206 of Ayers Rock Helicopters. In 2005, Eric Fague converted the three 206 models from FMS models by "Logic Wizard" into REFLEX models using xmodder. This one has 2.50 m rotor diameter, weighs 17 kg, and is powered by a gas engine. Back then Eric wrote it corresponds to the Jet Ranger III XL by Vario (today also with electric and turbine drive).

Bell 206 - Swiss registration Bell 206 with Swiss registration. These 206 models are relatively coarse and have a somewhat fuzzy paint scheme, but they are nice and quite good fliers. This one has even 3.00 m rotor diameter but weighs only 15 kg, as well powered by a gas engine.

Bell 206 - Santini Air Bell 206 of Santini Air. This model has 3.00 m rotor diameter, weighs 15 kg and is powered by a gas engine as well. Back then Eric asked that someone make better parameters for the flight behavior. This request is still not granted, but actually Eric has always made good parameters. And he added a short demo flight (hit F9 in REFLEX, Bell 206 Santini Air).

The 'engine sounds' of my REFLEX models are more characteristic for the model's drive than for the model-drive combination. The sounds should therefore fit any other model with the same drive. If you only want the sounds, here are all sound files combined in a ZIP file. It includes short descriptions of the sounds and recording instructions (ReflexSoundsBE.txt).

Stability calculations with Plane Geometry

The geometries of my models were measured and entered into the spreadsheets Plane Geometry by Blaine K. Beron-Rawdon. The moments of inertia of the models were measured too and used in the calculation of stability data as far as 'Plane Geometry' can do this. Models not available to me were measured from drawings published in the WWW, moments of inertia were estimated. The spreadsheets 'MeasureC/V' and 'DesignC/V' from 'Plane Geometry' with the model data are available here. With respect to the copyright, all formulas are deleted and there is no documentation of 'Plane Geometry'.

Propeller calculations with JavaProp

The propellers of my models were photographed with a digital camera. Using the pictures, the program 'PropellerScanner' by Martin Hepperle derived the geometry data. The program 'JavaProp' by Martin Hepperle calculated the propeller coefficients from the geometry. The values are stored in a file named 'MultiAnalyse.txt' and offered here together with all files needed to review the process.

Airfoil polar calculations with JavaFoil

The airfoil geometry data are retrieved from Michael S. Selig's UIUC Airfoil Data Site (ADS). The polars were calculated with 'JavaFoil' by Martin Hepperle. Additional measured airfoil performance data come from Hiroshi Takeushi's NASG Airfoil Database and the UIUC Low-Speed Airfoil Tests (LSAT) of the UIUC Applied Aerodynamics Group. All these airfoil data are available here as far as they are freely available elsewhere.
