Hey, just wondering, since you're in Kansas city, are you gonna get the chance to try out the super-fast Google fiber internet service, or is that just for a lucky few?

I signed up! I want the deal that you pay upfront $300 and have super high speed for life. Or you can not spend any money and your phone, internet, and HDTV is $100 a month for like three years.

The neighborhoods that pre sign up the most people is where it's going first.

Hope you get it! Hardly any choice of providers here, and all over-priced. I'm still on DSL, and it can only stream Netflix SD content at medium quality! If my wife and daughter are both doing stuff online, I can hardly even watch the video clips people post on this forum.

I did some work on my 'revert' project, working with the cmt belted tail section. After throwing the old grips back on and a cncheli tail pitch slider upgrade, i found that there is a clicking sound when i spun the grips. Then i remembered that i replaced the front tail case bearing with some that had been crashed, and had to be cut from, the rear tail case of the align tail kit. I will have to replace them before i even think about using this belted tail section.

I have not shaved anything off the boom yet cause i want to run the belt for a pack or two in the heli to see what effects that has. I might also try the cf boom i got from hk to help with the static build up.

The old fb head is read after i replaced the feathering shaft and bent a grip ball link back to straight.

I have a gy48 with a fusonic (9257) clone that should be good for sport flying. I also orderd the turnigy mini mems that is said to be better for 3D.

I'm thinking about trying some 600 size cf paddles for killer cyclic response, but will test fly with regular hk 500 paddles to get started and be able to see the change in feel.

Looks like ALZRC is one step closer to releasing their 500pro clone or Devil500. With the release of parts today the only thing missing is the tail slider area (working of their mechanical slider) and the main frames. It looks like Aligns little addition of plastic to the frames has proved much harder to clone. http://www.rc711.com/shop/alzrc-devi...6_216_309.html

Thanks for the link and the heads up Mhills. Out of everything in my fleet, the 450 gets flown the most. I have been hoping and waiting for somebody to put out something between a 450 and a 500 heli. The devil 480 fast is exactly what i have been waiting for.
The goblin 500 and kds 550 are going to have to take a back seat. This will be my next build. 360 mm blades on 6s How freaking perfect is that !! Not to mention they went with the goblin look. http://www.rc711.com/shop/alzrc-devi...th=165_273_353

A few mouths back I asked Sam Lee from hk-parts about a 500 Pro clone. At first he asked if i wanted to buy one now. I said maybe next month. In the end he emailed me back saying it wasn't ready. Would I buy one now since I have the VWINRC 500esp..hummm..maybe.

Frame from gogorc arrived today.



Battery tray has a shallower angle and the servo holes are about 2mm further out from the mainshaft than the Tarot panel. The CF is about a tenth of a mm thicker and seems stiffer. The front end of this frame looks like it would hold up to a crash better than the standard one. Not bad for $19.

EDIT: the boom holder screws on the gogorc panel are about 0.2mm off from the Tarot panel, however they are all positioned correctly relative to each other so it shouldn't make a difference. Comparing both frames to the Align one, the gogorc panel mimics the Align frame exactly in the rear while the Tarot one has different cutouts. So I suspect that it's actually the Tarot panel that's off spec from the Align frame.

One side of the hole for the motor as well as the slot that the ridge on the bottom plate snaps into were about 0.1mm out of tolerance and had to be sanded a bit to make the aluminum bottom plate fit. The Tarot frame also has this problem. With the gogorc frame it's on the side toward the nose, with the Tarot frame it's on the side toward the tail. Both need a little bit of sanding on the slot.

All other holes line up perfectly, for $19 a set I'm not complaining.

Basically the same thing here. We pay $60 a month for a 3mbit down .5mbit up connection with 12 basic cable channels. I get more channels from the local broadcast in HD than I get for my paid cable line. The worst part about it.. 15 feet across the street they have comcast and charter with 70+ up/20+down. Could always be worse I suppose but I am not impressed with Bloom broadband.

Wow I am just like you except TimeWarner is right across the street and in my back yard, but I am in Comcast "district" This was one of those wonderful things the US senate did to make cable more affordable back in the 80's. Yea my dad saw his bill doubled after it pasted. They did the same with payday loans a few years back. The government stepped in because people were being gouged and the charge for a two week load went up.
