Dave, the instructions are not too clear... The top main bearing block goes writing up and the bottom block goes writing down. I think we discussed this once before but for the 600.... I am sure you have them in correctly but I figured it would be worth mentioning.

Hey Stamp/Jim,

I know it can be frustrating for you, each and everyone of us on the thread has been there, so don't feel along by any means.

I'll be quick here, I'm tired as heck.

Anywho, there is a ton of information on the internet and forums to get you started. For me, it was a long time to hover and get my orientations straight in my head. About 6 months or more. Some learn quickly some don't. That's just part of the hobby.

Don't pass up on Ivan's / 9sec240 offer to help you. Take the time to do that.
He'll get you straight, I know that for sure.

Almost sleeping here,
Dave

Dave...looking good there. I think you'll love it.

John (JPEE)...I watched the whole video guy, I gotta agree with the others here. It didn't look like it had the nuts on the recovery punchout it should have had. Could have been the broken mount, pitch/throt curves, or battery. One thing about helicopters, one thing could look like several other things...that's what makes this an amazing hobby. To make one fly, and make it fly right....that's an accomplishment of beating a lot of odds that are against you...mechanically, electrically, and pilot wise.

Ivan,

With my eyes, nothing is to clear. LMAO! Yep, I remember the discussion with the 600.. Damn, your right again. I appreciate it for sure. I did srew up, I already made the change to the lower bearing block. Oh, I'll clean up the grease too.

See Pic....

Thanks again,

Dave

It is on 1st just south of 290 across from Loyola Hospital. I will probably be flying at Busse in Schaumburg on Sunday.
Ivan,

I'm in Prospect Heights.
I'll take you up on that offer. Just a matter of when.
This weekend...no go. Little league, B Day party, Great America (maybe I'll get some pov riding the roller coaster).
Next weekend I have no clue what the plans are.
If you don't mind I'll keep in touch via pm and we can work something out.
Thank you for the offer...very nice of you.
Oh...not to mention, I need a haircut lol. Too many things to do.

Jim

Dave That looks real sweet! We all KNEW you'd be busy this weekend!

Vic- Good to hear Rick is well. Tell him to share whatever is on his mind here, not jusr RC stuff!

Ivan- Great of you to offer Stamp some help. Wish more of us lived closer together to do some flying!

Stamp- make some time to get with Ivan real soon. Having someone experienced go over your heli with you is priceless. Don't go by youtube videos either. Those people didn't learn that stuff overnite, takes much time and patience. As for me, I still get nervous when flying the heli, its a full focus for me. Planks on the other hand are more relaxing cuz I've been doing them longer.

Hey Guys,

Jay, now your cooking with gas arr arr arr 20 amps! Boy oh boy that BOT900 is really something! Like you said the cost would scare the crap and beans out of ya. I'll check my head speed that you pointed out but you clearly heard my hit idle-up and my RPMs go high. Without looking I think my curve is 95-98-100, I'll giver a look today.


Kyle, how cool you have that wonderful field across the highway to fly. The driveway shots are great too!

9sec240, Ivan I am running two 3S 2250 25C packs in series. Been running them for over year and never had an issue. But as now you say and Jay says, you all hear RPMS dropping I visit that today.

Thanks Jim for your blessings, and good luck on the gryo problem you have been dealing too.

Stamp-Jim, I hope my crash won't sendya to the Dentist with that jay issue LOL.

Yes I hear ya Vic, gonna review everything today. I can't say it's not possible that my packs may have lost some of their amperage. I'll be doing some test flying today and Sunday in idle-up but just sport flying and throwing some spikes at her to see how she responds.
