Aérospatiale AS 565 fs

The Alouette (French for lark) II Sud-Est SE.3130 is powered by a Turboméca Artouste II, the Sud-Aviation SA-318C by an Astazou IV. The manufacturer consortium Aérospatiale produced the Alouette II with a skid landing gear, three-blade main rotor and a two-blade tail rotor.

Apart from a few struts for stabilisation, the cabin, which is not spatially separated from the cockpit, is fully glazed. The fuselage frame and the tail boom are of tubular steel construction and are not covered. The lack of fairing gives a clear view and good accessibility to the propulsion elements behind the cockpit. The Alouette was widely used in the military and civilian sector for passenger transport and as an observer, but above all in flight training (here mainly due to the design with only one engine for performing autorotations). In the past, they were sometimes used for patient transport in air rescue, but only sporadically due to the limited space available.

As the first helicopter model, the Alouette II was used by numerous German police helicopter squadrons, among others for mission control and border surveillance by the Federal Border Police (now the Federal Police, until the end of 2007), the German Armed Forces (until the beginning of 2008), the Swiss companies Air Zermatt and Air-Glaciers (especially the successor model Lama), the Swiss Air Force, the Turkish police, the French and Belgian armed forces and the Argentine Air Force.

The Alouette II is particularly suitable for training junior pilots because the manual indirect control is forgiving of control errors and allows flying without automatic, i.e. with non-stabilised control. Flight stabilising elements, as found in modern twin-engine helicopters, are missing from the Alouette II. This means that the pilot must be very attentive and aware of the controls and thus get a good feel for how the machine reacts to the operation of the controls.

The scale replica of the model is based on the superstructure of the original Alouette II. The fuselage frame and the tail boom are made of stainless steel tube frame construction and are not covered. The stainless steel tubes are brazed with silver solder. The frame construction in the cockpit area is self-supporting and accommodates the batteries, receiver, turbine electronics, landing lights below the cockpit floor. All mounting points for turbine fairing, airintake support system, exhaust pipe are provided on the framework. The same is true for the battery box, fire extinguisher, paraffin pump and solenoid vent.

The scale canopy impresses with its narrow frame and, after glazing, gives a very original impression of the canopy replica. Optionally, the scale character of the canopy can be greatly enhanced by replicating rivets, screws and sheet metal reinforcements. Optionally, the cockpit heating system can be reproduced with 3D printed parts, in addition to many other details. The canopy is slid over the stem and is connected to the tubular steel frame with 2 pieces of M 4 screws. The set of washers is included. The washers are fitted from the inside and fixed with superglue.

The necessary 3-piece sheet metal covering behind the tank is provided with the typical recesses in the sheet metal. Optionally, the hinged part can be reproduced true to the original by cutting it out and fitting it with hinge tape. The necessary drawings with dimensions are enclosed with the model.

The tail boom is removable and has stable connecting elements.

The tail rotor drive is mounted 6 times on the tail boom like on the original. The drive tube has a diameter of 6 mm and a wall thickness of 0.5 mm. The connection of mechanics, shaft and tail rotor is done by generously designed coupling systems.

The tubular steel frame holds a 5-litre GRP tank. A large sight glass allows the paraffin level in the tank to be monitored. Baffles in the tank ensure that the entire filling quantity can be flown.

The landing gear with struts is available in a normal version and in a scale version.

The control of the swash plate can be reproduced originally. For this purpose a servo mount is already installed behind the cabin. From here the original control can be led to the swash plate via a bell crank. The swashplate is then in a three-point linkage.

It is also possible to install the servos in the mechanics and to steer the swash plate directly via 4 servos.

Turbine or electric version

Mechanics HF- Tiger for Jakadowsky turbines PRO X or electric drive with Q 100
Robust mechanics specially designed for the Panther and the position of the turbine.

Stable GRP side plate screwed onto aluminium bars milled from the solid form the base frame of the mechanism.

An original bevel gear set from Jakadowsky is placed between the distance bars. It was manufactured with high precision and is driven by a main gear made of high-strength plastic. This main gear is designed for the desired speed of the rotor head for the Alouette II and is specially milled for us from the solid. This ensures 100% concentricity. The plastic main gear then meshes with the pinion of the centrifugal clutch of the Jakadowsky turbine.

High-quality bearings complement the mechanics and allow for a long service life.

Tail rotor:

The tail rotor is completely made of aluminium with a bevel gear combination 1:1 with a diameter of 23.3 mm. The bevel gears have cyclo-palloid gearing module 0.6 and the tooth flanks are induction hardened.

This gives us sufficient strength for large models with increased torque which the tail rotor has to compensate.

The direction of rotation is designed for the Alouette II, but can be changed at any time by moving the gears in the gearbox. This means that it is possible to change the direction of rotation or the side of rotation at a later date.
An 8mm hollow drilled, case hardened and ground tail rotor shaft drives the rotor with steel centre piece and mounted blade holders.

Tail rotor completely manufactured in metal on high-precision 5-axis machining centres for us according to our drawings and designs.
