  Mini-Boy wood layout.


As you can see from the above montage there were two cabin layouts.  The first was the basic extension nose and as can be seen this used the combined throttle/ collective layout.  The second incorporated an additional floor plate that allowed the servo's to be positioned to give better linkage runs and also provided the extra room needed for a five servo installation with separate throttle and collective servo's.

 Following on from the Super Heli-Baby as a 'Pod and Boom' trainer and basic sport model.  Looked very similar but incorporated a number of improvements, especially the blade mixer arms for the combined Bell/Hiller control system.
