My collection of YouTube in flight videos using my stock Easystar running a brushed motor , 9.6V 2/3A IB-1200 packs. The camera I'm using is an Aiptek IS-DV2 it was a $100.00 Target store purchase. The orginal vids were taken in 640X480 but YouTube seems to downgrade the quality of the videos when you post them.
06-10-07: Just updating, I actually own a camera now that I can take some videos with, the first round of vids are ugly starter videos as myself and my friends get the hang of this whole shooting video thing.
I updated my MX-400 with the CCPM conversion, I also upgraded the washout and blade grips (the CCPM conversion came with a new swash).
Overall I am pleased with how the conversion went, I was thinking that this was going to be a mess of an upgrade but once you get going things move rather quickly. The frame is a lot cleaner now and with the top rails gone there is room for pretty much any battery one can think of now.
Specs of Final Setup:
Align 430L (3550Kv) with 11T pinion:
CC-35 amp ESC with ParkBEC (5-volt)
Berg 7P Horizontal
3ea HS-65HB servo's for swash
HS-81 for tail servo
Polyquest 16C 2100mah 3-cell (8-10min flight time)
Trex tail rotor blades
Full CNC head (helimax)
CNC tail drive (helimax)
Trex flybar and pads
Post conversion flight notes:
The heli is much more crisp in it's control now and the cyclic response is great. The Trex tail rotor blades have also increased the tail authority by a large margin. Overall it's a lot more fun to fly , the only upgrades left I would like to do would be a GY401 or Logitech 2100 gyro to increase the tail hold.
