Our resident scale helicopter guy is WildBird22, of he doesn't respond soon, you may try to PM him. Or email him if you can see it.
Good luck and we would love to see pictures when you start it. Maybe a new build thread.....

I think the Airwolf is a 2-blade bird, but people like to build to their own taste...so if your thinking about using the Flymentor with a 4-blade rotor, don't rush into it....A Scale 450 size can be fun to build....lots of folks started with a 450 as their first scale helicopter, and grew from there in size.

If it was me....I would save the Flymentor for a 500 size scale helicopter...heavier and more stable than a scale 450, and just keep the 2-blade setup on the airwolf. Besides, with a 450 size 4-blade rotor, you will need to change the motor to a lower KV rating, and possibly change the pinion as well. You don't run a high head speed with a rotor head that has more than 2 blades.
