7.6lbs, I was the one weighing it on a calibrated scale. 7.6lbs ready to fly !
this was with TP 6s 5000s. dont know about your scale or batteries:rolleyes
Yes I use a digital postal scale, 5gr resolution, and it is with Hyperions 6s 1p 5000mah pack.

If you put in a 10s1p 3700 pack, which is a more HV setup, you're looking at 200 gr more weight on pack, for total of 7.5 lbs. Of course a new motor and esc combo is needed.
You may have to use 2 5s1p 3700 packs to strap on sides, Ion like.
The e620 has an easier battery bay, granted, but it is heavier.

Durations will be better on a lighter ship using the same 10s pack.

go shearch the Trex 8s-10s thread on the freak. every 10s trex in that thread(atleast 2 maybe 3) is 8-8.2lbs. btw garys 11s3700 620se With rec. pack and regulator (no ubec) is 8.4lbs

I guess your scale is WAY OFF.

AGAIN the trex 600 and 620se WILL be within ounces of each other (when equally equiped)

I have to agree with Spruce here. I been following those threads closely as well on other forums. It is one of the reasons I bought this heli and am willing to give it a try. With the battery tray it is there are so many options. I think it will perform just fine on 10S, fi not there is 12S,14S etc,,, not so easy to say for the rex 600, you have a few options other than the brick 6S1P packs, but not as many and your flight times get short fast once you want more voltage in that heli.

In a month to two there will be enough of these airborne to know what the real hands on deal is with these helis. I plan on making honest comparisons as I do not keep anything that is not worth it or that does not suit my style. I like very powerfull setups and solid feeling helis myself.

Stay tuned......

No it's not, as I have checked it against a friend other brand of digital scale and an O'haus triple scale 300g weight and it is accurate.

A 10s 3700 pack is 950gr vs a 6s 5000 is 750gr. You do the math on extra weight. Again, it will depnd on your equipment.

I just got my kit today also.

Started building it – I am really impressed with this kit. I think that the frame is actually stiffer and lighter than the nitro version. So far I really like the way the kit is going together.

I have a couple of old 5s pack that I was going to use for a 10s setup but they are not the right shape to fit the frame. Looks I will do the initial flying with a Flight Power 3700 8s pack – that should make a nice lightweight helicopter.

In the begining....

frame with all bellcranks, bearings and pulleys.

I know I know..I just added a bunch of weight but.........its worth it

Ben did yours have the one way grease, the dampner grease and loctite in the kit. The manual acts like its included but I cant find it. Not that it matters I just wonder if they are including it.

That head looks awesome man! If I end up liking this heli I may do the same, that looks spanky, where you get and how much? Looks like it is the Kasama head?

Yup its the Kasama head. I bought it when they first started to talk/advertise about it here (1st batch)
I had it built ready to go for my nitro 50 but never got around to putting it on.

http://www.z-rc.com/ is where I bought this one

Just a note, the manual gives link lengths for 120 and 140 degree ccpm. The 120 lengths are for 90 degree (there is no 120 option in the kit just 90 and 140)

I have found several errors like that in the manual. I have not found anything serious that would lead to a construction error. Apparently at one time there were going to make it 120 degrees and decided 140 would be better. Can’t wait for the 140 swashplate to hit the market.

This design sure has some nice improvements over the nitro Raptor. I really like the ball bearing A arm. Also the plastic landing gear mounts will break in a crash and save you replacing the entire frame. For those who don’t have one yet these mounts look like you will probably be able to get a set of 4 for about $5.

Some pics with the servos and gyro installed.

It sits 3lbs 14 ounces right now. I weighed my receiver, rec batt and regulator and they came in at 7oz, so 4 lbs 5oz with servos,gyro, receiver, rec batt and regulator.

So far this has been a VERY EASY build, everything fits together extremely well. I wasnt to sure about the 90 degree ccpm. I thought the swash may be prone to twisting (even if it was very minor) but once everything is hooked up it is ROCK SOLID.

So far so good
