CopterX 500SE V2 - build disaster
i started this build in august 2010 and had nothing but problems
build went together without big problems but then it began.
the copterx 500 parts were so poor and cheap, nothing worked like it should.
i have recorded all my flights and flight attempts, so you can follow what happened
first spin up after finished the build and nearly accident:
after fixing the first problem i went outside for the first hover around tests, again, almost accident:
4 months later.. i thought it cannot be, so i started to pick up the work again on this heli, had to replace nearly 80% of the copterx parts with align and really got rid of the vibrations, which were caused because of bad shafts, main gears, motor... the only original part is the main head
first hard pitch test to check the tail holding:
well... now this is how it flies now
seems it was worth all the trouble, just a little lazy roll/flip rate. will change the copterx paddles against better onse, but so far im really impressed:
thanks for reading and watching!
