Haven't made a blog entry in awhile so thought I would update..
I messed around and got a ar7000 for my 600 but then decided to use it on my 450 instead. after trying to bind a few times , it finally dawned on me that i had to have the satellite connected. it binded at first try and is great. I also had to change my feathering shaft as I could not get my tracking correct. This corrected the tracking. Decided I would hover for awhile before i put it up for the day. It was only after I landed from about a 2 minute hover , that it dawned on me that I did not have my training gear on it.. I will still use the gear as i am still trying the different positions in a hover.

I do not care how long it takes to be a decent operator. I will practice for as long at it takes . One of the reasons behind this is that when i finish the 600 and decide to take it up in the air, I did not plan to have training gear on it. I am going to experiment with the copilot 2 so that I can practice the orientations on hover. I have actually taken my hands off transmitter for a few seconds and heli stays in place pretty well. To me, this says that the heli is set up right. So the copilot should be easy to setup now. This was the main reason to putting the 7000 into my 450. I wanted to have the on/off on a seperate channel. Not have the gyro running through the copilot so I could turn the copilot off.

I am actually taking my time on the 600 build. I have all the servos and motor mounted. I have got a jr 921 receiver and a spartan 7600 gyro for it also. I might wait to finish build until i get 3 of the 8717s and a 8900 servo. From what i have read, this woudl be a great combination. I imagine that the 600 will probably be finished some time this winter..a good inside project. But i have another inside project also. I need to be good enough on the 450 so that i can mount a 500e fuselage on it. I would like to do that this winter also. I have the fuselage but will have to wait and see where my skill level, at flying is before i do that.

til next time..
