really liking your choice of electronics there eagle777, courious to see how those servos work out for you and I may just copy that exact setup. Well, 80amp should be sufficient for me. Keep us posted (and I'm sure you will).

I'm using the 80amp and it is working just fine. I was tempted to get the 100 just because the price was not a issue, but they were sold out.

I just order my Airwolf fuse and now my stomach is bothering me.

Hey, flew four packs today, and the Spring cyclics worked very well. Centered well and are probably as good as the Align 510Ms. I couldn't tell any difference.
New ZYX-S 3.50, an old RJX rebuilt head, Futaba S9257, YEP 100A. I didn't have an extra three wire cable to program the ESC throttle range, so governor was off.

The Helium 500 1500kV with a 12T pinion was ok, I ran out of juice a couple time during aggressive maneuvers, but if the cyclic/collective is handled, it will do aerobatics fine. It'll pull up to 400' very quickly. The ZYX was fine with default PID, no wobbles.

I still need to put on a Align tail case and the new tail rod guides and servo holder. Sweet!

I like/hate this helicopter. For some reason I can't resist working on them, upgrading them or posting about it.

I feel in love with the classifides here, and on helifreak. I was able to get a beastx, scorpion 3226-1600kv, cc ice 75a and bec pro, as well as extra servos and an align swash for my 500. And saved alot-o-money.

Haha, nope, it's actually the beater heli that cuts grass inverted with cheap FBG blades. The other 500 has better stuff.

I saw a couple pretty good deals in classifides, but they go quick. However, most of the stuff is older, everybody wants the hot new ticket (including me). So even if there is a good deal on a Trex500 ESP, probably not gonna do it cause mhills has me wanting a FBL Pro. I hate that feeling of being proud to get a good deal, then a week later realizing I shoulda just put the money into something I REALLY want.

Jombo we need to get our shipping fixed lol! this makes two fuses that have gotten mixed up. Last time I got your orange one first.

Yea! of course it's the black lol! I also have the HK servo speed programmer coming so I can slow the retracts down.

With pots is you may just reduce the volts which would reduce the torque. This is expose to slow the digital or analog signal and keep 100% of the torque and for $7 the post will cost about the same lol!
