Quick Learner (2001)

 

Introduced late 2001 with the same basic design as the 30 but with a number of cost reducing options so as to provide a lower priced introduction machine; changes noted below.  Note that the fundamental change to the head design etc thus identifies the model as a separate machine.  

The Quick Learner featured the same machined control items the Pro 30 including the anti rotation guide pin, washout, inline flybar control arms, and swashplate. The head was different in that the Pro 30 features a double spindle, centre dampened head, the learner features a single spindle head.  The Pro 30's head was completely machined, while the Learner head had plastic blade grips.

  

The major control system difference between the Pro 30 and the Learner was the method in which Elevator servo is hooked up.  In the Pro model the elevator servo was in front of the main frame support with the servo connected to the swashplate with two ball bearings and a bell crank.  In the Learner the elevator swashplate was behind the main frame support connecting the servo directly to the swashplate.

Cost reducing included moulded anti-rotation guide instead of a metal item, plastic cross members and composite supports with plastic ends. and

Final change was a moulded plastic radio tray and gyro mount, both with brass inserts in as shown above.

Quick Super Learner (2005)

In line with the rest of the range the Learner was brought up to the same specification as either Sport G10 or Pro Carbon.  All versions now had autorotation with the now standard 10mm main shaft and 8mm spindle shaft.  Nine and ten tooth options were available depending upon engine chosen and also the head speed for the desired flying style (1500 to 2000 RPM).  Recommended blades were now 550 to 580mm and model size had a length of 44.5" and height 0f 18.5".

By 2005 a lot of 30 size helicopters were being fitted with the now 'standard' option of a 37-38 size engine.  Though named the Quick Super learner, there was also a 'basic' version in both Sport and Pro options; this was mainly for when buying the combo as it was the same kit for basic 32 and Super 37 sizes but the price difference was due to the basic being supplied with the OS32 engine as opposed to the OS37 engine.

May 2008 saw the model range removed from the web site though all were still in the general price listings and even as late as 2012 a full spares price listing was advertised.
