Our good friend Nir Goldman shared with us his latest project called The Logo 600SE “Swissrumpf”:
“For quite some time I had an “unemployed” Logo 600SE sitting in the room. The minute I saw the picture of the “Rumpf Patrouille Suisse” posted in Stefanie Blesa‘s facebook from the “Eisbärentreffen Freudwil 2012” Event, I knew what will be the use of this heli and what will be my new project.
Okay, so to get this project moving I had to find who this brilliant custom producer was. After few days of searching (without seeing the “swissrumpf.ch” signature) I finally found what I was looking for: WWW.SWISSRUMPF.CH
I have some luck that every year I am attending the Basel Jewelry show, in year 2011 my loot was my first TDR and this year I aimed for this swissrumpf fuselage.
Few days after I found the site I contacted Roman De Martin, the man behind this beautiful project.
The final order was made on Fen 20th and I received the canopy from Roman’s friend on March 11th in Basel. The reactions that I received from other people were amazing!!
What did I get in the Kit:
- Coated canopy
- Carbon plate
- Bolts in few different lengths
- Flexible nylon push rod and new ball links
- Two aluminum angle brackets
- Two drive-in nuts
Although it is my first scale/ fuselage installation, it was relatively an easy job.
Because the Logo is a belt driven tail it is necessary to fit everything into place and then to do all the drills.
These are the stages:
1. Disassembling the tail, tail carbon control rod , tailboom brace
2. Since I didn’t have tail rotor case I took an old stabilizer and cut to the shape needed in order to plug it in the fuselage tail.
3. Disassembling of the landing gear and assembling of the carbon plate.
4. Re polishing the tail rotor area in order to fit the tail rotor case exactly in the middle of the fin.
5. Installing the flexible push rod.
6. Drilling 4 holes: 3 pass through and one smaller hole to attach the tail rotor case to the body.
7. Connecting the two aluminum angle brackets, one for each side of the logo frame and attaching the two drive-in nuts into the inner rib of the fuse.
8. Installing the tail rotor case- bolts must be reversed and installed from left to right, 3 bolts are free , on bolt holds both fuse and the case.
9. Finally- after everything fits, and the belt tension is checked, drilling the holes to attach the carbon plate to the carbon “table” inside the fuse.
Since I am a great fan of Henselit TDR and I saw in Roman’s site a new TRD like canopy I asked Roman if he had other TDR like designs and I received from him a Photoshop file with some scheme options. I worker for few hours on few different colors and some modifications and together with two friends I made my final decision (believe me it wasn’t so easy…)

The real First one was without the canopy hood to see how the vbar and the flexible pushrod are working. It has been a while since this heli hit the air and wanted to see the it is ready for this beautiful canopy.”
