Was putting mine togeather today, was binding my ar 600 to it and when i plugged in the battery i got a solid light{should be blinking when ready to be bound}, so i thought i did something wrong, i quickley dissmissed that thought when i thought to my self, ar 600s are all i run, so i know i did'nt do any thing wrong, which is when i discovered, one of the motor leads to the esc{bullet connector}was snapped at the solder joint, so watch out for that folks.
You have been warned.

Walrus instructions

Hi, I bought one of these but didn't get any instructions with it. Its all pretty self explanatory, but one thing I'd like to know is where the C of G is ?
If some one could post that for me it would be fab.
Anything else I should be aware of?
Thanks,
Steve

71mm (edit: INCORRECT? in manual)
And nothing else special...
Good luck on your maiden!
What are your plans to keep the battery from being able to shift around in the cavernous fuse? I'm thinking of gluing a foam block or 2 in it.

Walrus just swam through the door!! Gave it a through inspection and it looks great!! Took 11 days to get here. Now I know why they call it a Walrus! It is Big and Fat, but Beautiful and needed a home!! I'm Happy BUCK

Re: the battery I used a turnigy 2650 3s lipo in my one. It fitted very snugly between the elevator and rudder servo's, so much so that no velcro or tape was needed. Never had a problem with it shifting. The model will happily take the extra weight over a 2200 and you'll get longer flight times. That being said, with a 2200 3s, velcro alone will be fine. CG with the 2650 3s is basically on the spar, if a fraction forward of it.

I'll see if i can get the instructions uploaded to the product page for future reference.

Be careful of stretching that foam,it will get looser in time.

and the white folding prop blades kinda look like a couple of tusks when handing down.

Thanks for that. I haven't got that far yet. Will probably use a lot of velcro even if it is a snug.

These are the daul rates and expo settings I have for my Walrus on the DX8 with all surfaces set to neutral:

Ail:

Pos 2 (low rates), D/R 45% EXPO 15.
Pos 1, D/R 60% EXPO 20.
Pos 0 (high rates), D/R 100%, EXPO 25

ELE:
Pos 2 (low rates), D/R 60% EXPO 15.
Pos 1, D/R 85% EXPO 20.
Pos 0 (high rates), D/R 125%, EXPO 25

RUD:
Pos 2 (low rates), D/R 70% EXPO 15.
Pos 1, D/R 95% EXPO 20.
Pos 0 (high rates), D/R 125%, EXPO 25

In low rates the response is ideal for anyone learning to fly IMO, though some may find it a little too unresponsive for there liking. Mid rates (Pos 1) is a good 'standard' setting, and high rates are ideal if you want to be able to chuck her around a little.


hope this helps.

I have my flap rates and servo speeds if that helps, but I don't think I used any mixing.

Servo Arms??

Almost finished the Walrus. Having a problem with the controls. The servo arms lay flat in the wings so I can't hook the rods to the controls. Do I have to hook up the radio to get the arms to stick out of the wing?? I assume they are like that for shipping. Thanks Buck

Yes, when you apply power, the arms will center themselves.
