Great day
Just wanted to share my Stingray 500 resurrection ( from ashes to a beautifully reborn phoenix )
Taken a while to get the correct parts though but well worth the search.
When purchased it had a very hard Rt nose in landing bent a lot broke a lot damaged a lot
All 3 booms bent and broken, main drive shaft bent, 3 rotor shafts bent, all blade grips damaged all blades damaged
These are the starting pic during re build re setup process
I will post more as this project comes to completion.
Electronics are on a very tight platform I will include an electrolytic to help filter this.
Also planning on using my DX6i single stick for this bird.
Spending the time to get it right.
I got lucky and found the correct Scorpion 10 black motor for the Stingray
Included a little addition to adjust the motor belt. I made this mod to the belt to help any drive vibration slack slap to the main shaft drive. Tricky location placement.
Balance COG ??? got to be there some where you would think Any thoughts

I have just finished my DX6I S/Stick set up & it works great I post a few pic as to what it looks like With a little careful resizing for the extracted stick end hole I was able to just screw in the new stick right to the gimbal self threaded nicely. Small slot already in the gimbal base made it easy to feed the wiring through cleanly.
I used a 3axes gimbal stick from Aloft ( 5K pot ) with a momentary switch on the stick that I connected to the throttle kill button so both are active at the same time for what ever you may wish, timer, motor kill. The rudder pot was simple to center & offers several spring tentions along with offering full 125% sweep from min to max > or <, More than you'll ever use but still capable.
At this moment in time I have just removed the jst female pins from the normal rudder pot plug & replaced them with the jst pins from the 3 axes kit red, yellow, black. (Still trying to figure a switch so I can have both at the flip of a switch 2 stick or single stick ) Work in process there Also Looking into a set of heaver gimbal springs to take up some of the extra stick end weigh. As for now a little adj ( well a lot of adj ) and the stick centers just fine
But all in all I see why Curtis Youngblood like flying a single stick TX
No unwanted rudder input when using the pitch and power LF gimbal ( touchy C/P's for sure a movement issue )
Right hand controls all surface movements.
Rudder movement with aileron angle change smooth...Continue Reading
