check that the motor gear is meshing with the main gear ?

Hey Coco, after some slacking by me and waiting on extra parts i didn't realize i needed, my super v400 is finally about to fly with your sturdy Everframetm. The thread lock is drying and i'll test hover tomorrow and keep on flying if all goes well. I set it up so i can load the batteries from the rear and with a little tweak it'll fit my large 2200mah turnigy batts that give me over 7min in my 450's. Can't wait to test it out and set it up to my flying style Oh and as soon as i get it set up to the way i like flying, i'm sure it won't be long before i test the durability of that frame.... Which i'm sure will hold up short of me running it over with my car

Oh yeah, i realized that one a little while ago when i noticed switching to stunt in the middle of flying caused a little bit of strangness. I think i only use about 10%expo though, I like the control to be mostly linear. I am using a little more on the tail though because when doing flips, etc, i found myself giving a tiny bit of rudder input accidentally, so i softened it up around center stick. Anyway, time to go test hover and finish setup of my superV

Well my test hover was unsuccessful, but i think i got it figured out. Two things happen which is curious to me.

First i spooled up nice and slow, got about an inch or two off the ground, landed again, and did it one more time. Up to this point everything looked ok. Then I went to do it again and gave throttle a little too quick since i'm use to the slow start on the 3gx, and somehow I stripped the main gear doing that. My mesh was set pretty good, but that wasn't a brand new gear, so who knows. No biggie i thought, and swapped it out in less than five minutes.

When i was checking the gear mesh of the new gear i noticed something else going on. I could get my pinion to twist, but the outer motor casing wouldnt twist if i held it. The pinion was connected good so I was beginning to think I needed a new motor and that something on the outer casing was broken. Upon careful inspection I found a set screw on the outer casing and sure enough it was loose (not the pinion set screw). I didn't even know there was a set screw there, figured they just welded it, another instance of learning something new every day I took the whole outer part off and snapped a pic i'll post when i do my build write up. Anyway, back to waiting for loctite to dry. Since it's still kind of early maybe i'll give it a try this evening.

haha, don't worry, i still make an occasional rookie mistake too. I'm embarrassed to admit i haven't even messed with the esc governor settings yet Any tips would be appreciated.

There is just so much involved with this hobby it's crazy and there is always something else to learn. That's what keeps me going though, well that and flying super sweet rc helis

Hey dil...could you post some pics of how you set it up to load the battries from the rear ? I'm kind of a back door man myself.

Sure thing, I took pictures along the way of building it and plan to post a write up as soon as i get it test flown. I wonder if the loctite is dry yet.....

Basically though, you need an extra tail support like RTF-heli has and then you can take off those tail supports. The bolts for the supports were causing my battery not to fit, and i forgot how the original wiring is, but you can rewire it if they are in the way. I want to test fly it before posting though, because i'm concerned the extra springyness (technical term) of the tail without the supports might cause some loss of performance, but i'll test it. The only other thing is that you need to make sure your battery fits under the main gear and you'll need to hold it down so it doesn't rub. I'm using a combo of washers to increase the cage size for my big batteries, and velcro to hold it in place.
