Would You Like A Video????

davidevo50,
I get the impression that you would like a video of my converted SDX flying!!!!!

But right now, I have a slight problem with the weather conditions.... seems Old Man Winter, wanted to make certain that we did not finish ANYWHERE NEAR OR BELOW our yearly average..... so the test area has gotten a "BIT" smaller.....



And your in Canada, so I know that you know all about this stuff

But hopefully it will not be too long before SPRING shows up!!!!!

Yes Doorman, a video would be nice. I guess I'll have to be a bit more patient. Snow here is pretty much all gone! This year the winter has been very mild with not much accumulations and it looks like it's gonna end 1 month early according to what our weather doctors are saying. And guess what! We are super busy at work, so I haven't had time or the energy to go the club to fly my not converted SDX! I guess I'll have to be patient for that too!

Keep us updated with your testing!

SDX Ordered!!!

airshares, I am sure you are going to be pleased with the SDX!!!!! I have just about gone 98% scale, but I have to tell you the SDX is so much fun to fly, I carry it everyplace I go!!!!!!(events or visiting other fields/clubs) And it sure is fun when someone says something like if it is not nitro it doesn't sound right... I offer to let them stand with me during spool up.... that usually takes care of that argument, and once they see the "POWER" of this set up.... they forget there is no smoke!!!!! Gotta love it....
We are going to be in the mid 40's the rest of this week, so it may just start to get rid of some of this snow, and at mid 40's, I don't mind sneaking a flight in outside now and then!!!!!

Stan

Also, nice looking 500e in your gallery... what are you going to load into that????

500E

The 500E was for my Trex 250. Align makes it. Pretty cool body. The front half pops on and off via magnets so its easy to get to the battery and mechanics. I am selling it though. I just have too much fun buzzing the little 250 around to stick it in a body.
Cant wait to start building the SDX. I learned on a Sceadu 50 nitro and loved that heli. That is why I'm going with Hirobo again. Quality is awesome. I have 3 Trex's right now and they are ok..
I'm really excited to hear if the new motor you have works so I can order one. What size ESC do I need and should I buy the E conversion or are you making a new mount that I should wait for?

ESC.....

I am using 8s on a CC 85HV esc, and the CC Pro BEC.....
The only mount that is available right now is the one from Hirobo...
Our friend that was looking into a mount for the outrunners moved out of the area for a new job... but he has been in touch and we may be seeing a prototype soon.... That would open up a lot of options...But, I have not heard how soon that might be!!!!
I owned an Evo50 also, and had a great time with it.... if you liked that one, trust me, you are not going to want to stop flying your SDX!!!!

Actually, I am going to be loading the Neu motor into the SDX over the weekend, and I might just get a chance to at least pop it off the ground just to see how it feels.... I will let you know if I do....

On the 500e... I would need the fuse on it just so that I could see it!!!! That is a Little heli and the parts are just not made for these old fingers!!!!!

Should I go 100 or 110 if I can get one cheap enough? Or just stick with the 85HV?
Align has 100Amp escs that you find for under $100.

Which ESC

It would not hurt to have the 100 or 110 HV, but there is no need for it since in the worst case mine only pulls a burst of about 70amps...but there is not a LOT of weight difference between the 3 units....and I like the programing that you can do on the CC....
The Aligns work, but you really do not have the options that are available from CC.... And I like to run through the clutch so the soft start is very important...

What about the CC ice 100? Looks good but its limited to 8s. Do you see a need to go over 8s?

Ice 100....

Yes the Ice 100 would do just fine.... I cannot see me going with anymore then the 8s set up... it all fits to well....and works great... and the new Ice controllers can give you a lot of valuable information.....

8s SDX coming.

Got my SDX, ICE100 and CC pro on their way.
Gonna go with GY520 Gyro and BLS251 on tail and most likely Align 620's on Cyclic.
Once Stan flies his Neu motor I will place an order for a motor.
Whats the part number for the E conversion for the SDX?

Cabon fin options

If your looking for Cheap Carbon Fin Options for the SDX I used the Align 600 fin set. Paid $20 for both and you can get them anywhere. Horizontal fits perfect with just some small spacers underneath to keep it from hitting the tube brace.
The Veritcal fits with small modification. Just take the stock fin and put a bolt thru the bottom hole and lay the carbon fin ontop. Then useing the stock fin as a drill guide re-drill the top hole directly below the orginal hole in the Align fin. Then use a 1/4" bit to drill the alignment hole in the carbon fin just like the hirobo fin. Use the hirobo fin as a drill guide for this hole too. Put the bolts back in from the fin side with nuts on the back instead of the stock set up that had the bolts coming in from the back and the nuts on the fin side.
Here are some pictures.

Mixing It Up!!!!!!!!!!!

airshares,

I was just wondering if you knew what happens when you mix HIROBO with Align???????

It might not happen right away, but on one of those high speed E-POWERED low fly by's....


If you see smoke, it will most likley not be coming from your esc, but those Align parts will catch fire being mounted on that GOOD LOOKING SDX!!!!!!!!!!!

So, you have been warned!!!!Stan

Ha. Thanks for the notice. I wanted carbon fins as I cant stand the white plastic things that came with it. I am gonna take the time to order some better looking ones for the SDX when I get the chance. These were cheap and at the LHS.

Scorpion.....

davidevo50

That is exactly the set up that we are going to be using as soon as we get the mounts...on 8s, it should be a rather nice "STUMP PULLER"
