Raptor E700 Build

Hi everyone.

I think the E700 in electric heli talk was out of place, so I started a thread here. I've only just ordered the airframe from Tower and the RJX 690 and 105mm blades from Helidirect tonight.

I'll post here from now on.

I'd thinking to get the 750MX, Edge 120A, and RJX FS0521 cyclic/tail. Any opinions?

I like the data logging and will probably use the motor tach output of the CC Edge one of these days. It looks like it about $50 more than the Hobbywing.

I see your also looking at the Align 750MX. . However. . Have you considered the Helidrive SK3 Series from HK ?

And in case I forget to ask. . When you get your Kit in. I'll be curious to know what the thickness is of your carbon fiber frames.
I have used the SK series in 450s and they look nice and perform ok. For this build though, I'd prefer the Align. It looks like about $150 ebay. I'll check out the thickness of the frame next week hopefully!

Kind of an iffy start of the game eh? Watching it now. Fans aren't that happy. http://blogs.seattletimes.com/seahawks/gamecenter/

You and HF seems to have generally good feeling about the RJX servos a couple reports of 'stop working' after 10-50 flights. I will probably get this set (so far). Hmmm I hate some aspects of reading about this stuff.

Saw the specifications of E700, and realize it is a lightweight machine.
I heard pilots of TT X50 that slop developed due to linkages between cyclic servos and the swash plate balls. And E700 looks like similar design in that aspect? Will it develop slop after a while?

Just looking for the servos now. A buddy of mine also has the cyclic Torq BL 9180 and tail BL 9188 on his X7. Pretty spendy for me, but could be doable. He's a 2 year prodigy and out flies most anyone.

Wow. I didn't expect that a couple hours ago. SB New York. Jeez Crazy Sherman.

RJX or Torq?

Hey, it's my thread!

The servo set would be $564 vs $339 Torq vs RJX. ($225 difference) I am not sure. I'm sure someone has an opinion? I'd consider an alternate, I have no idea about big servos.
