RC Bell-412 Giant Scale Model Turbine Helicopter


This giant RC Bell-412 has the cockpit in precisely the right location and the mechanics are built into the engine compartment just like in the full scale version. The rotor diameter of this RC Bell is 2.0m with a take-off weight of 24.8kg and a length of 2.0m, powered by JetCat PHT3 Turbine engine.

The tail boom is attached by a central screw-fitting joint; all you have to do is disconnect the tail rotor servo and undo the joint to remove the boom. The mechanical system is supported on a sub-structure consisting of aluminium plates with plastic connecting pieces, which in turn is screwed to the skid landing gear.

The 3-litre kerosene tank is located on the bottom of the fuselage below the entry step. The position of the turbine aft of the rotor shaft inevitably requires nose weight for the correct Centre of Gravity, and this means that it is possible to install extensive scale fittings in the cockpit, including pilots, safety belts, landing searchlights etc.


The Bell 412 is a utility helicopter of the Huey family manufactured by Bell Helicopter. It is a development of the Bell 212, with the major difference being the composite four-blade main rotor.
