How necessary is the 2402 transmitter with this heli? Will it be available barebones so we can use a 2401 with it?

It would appear that the 2402 brings very little benefits compared to the 2401. The LCD screen and menus seem to be only used as a replacement to the DIP switches, but there are no other options available through the menus, apart from the condition of the batteries.

I didn't think using the 4#3B swash was possible due to the CB100 having ball links, and the 4#3B having holes. (unless you rework the ends...)

All in all, you also have to sacrifice the CB100 Programing ability of the the RX2406C, so for many people it is not the best solution but it will be a cheaper one.

What about if you have the RX2605A on your 4#3B, shouldn't lose any programming ability there would you?

I took a look at both swashes and you could use the 4#3b swash. They both have ball links to the swash for the control rods. The reason the rod is slanted is the CB100 swash arms are not at 90 degrees. Also, the anti-rotation bracket is off center to the right. In order to get it all "right" on a 4#3b you would either have to use the 4#3b swash or use the CB100 head and swash and relocate the anti-rotation bracket to the right.

The 2605A is still the best choice for programming for the 4#3b. All of mine have one in them. I am trying to get the optimal set-up for this heli using the current stock electronics. I will go all out after I get her flying really good indoors and out.

Check the white balance setting, must have accidentally set it to some weird custom value since I can't think of any normal settings that would turn white pink, you normally get grey, red, and blue for white if you use the standard settings for different light sources.

If the white balance is set to "auto", then the computer in the camera is messed up, try setting to "daylight" (usually the little sun icon) to see if it goes back to white.

Sorry, there are no expo settings in the 2402. There is a timer option though. So now you can set an alarm to let you know when to bring her in.

Thanks. Will give it a shot.

Thanks for the pics Darryl, it surely shows the difference in the layout on the CB100 vs the 4#3B.

But... I am still unsure of how you would connect the ball links to the open holes in the 4#3B swash (or am I missing something?) The CB100 has ball's on the swash, the 4#3B has holes for the rods that connect. (getting ready to be embarrassed...)

dkfuji,

I have a question for this over the MSR. I have the MSR and LOVE IT. So far after a couple of weeks of constant daily flights I have only had to replace the blade grips.

What in the CB100 have you had to replace besides the canopy and the main blades?

I LOVE the MSR and love how it can take a crash like no other, the price and beauty of the CB100 is VERY alluring and wonder when compaired to the MSR how costly is it in a crash?

No you are correct. The 4#3b has dogbones that connect to the swash. I think the best way to do it would be to push out the plastic insert (causing your own swash separation) and inserting the one from the CB100 swash. A little CA and the swash will be good to go. I have not tried it, but I know that insert does pop out since I have done it with a crash. LOL.
