Hi All

I have a 450xl HDE and have been looking at changing the frame (see pic) now has anyone done this?? and whats it like??? or was thinking of getting the complete SE frame kit and converting it over to run ccpm on my nitro heli so i know the highs and lows of converting to ccpm, but i like the HDE set up it works well for me

Hi

I have one and I'm quite pleased with it. The elevator linkage needed some work before it was nice and smooth, but other than that it works well.

Here is a pic before I added the electronics etc....

I don't really see the use for this frame, if you are swapping, why not go to the direct linkages?

are you talking about ccpm??? if so the reason why im not, iv seen trexs after a crash with 3 stripped servos, so by staying with HDE if she goes in im only going to lose 1 servo, so saving me money in the long run

I don't have any gear strip problem after I replaced all three 56HB to Hitec 65MG servos. It is 450SE with ccpm.

I have this frame. Its nice!

I used the old XL link from the pitch servo as the new one had a duff bearing and was causing severe binding.

I did this.

Replaced this:
|
O----------O
O----------O
| <-- servo arm
With the old XL link:
O--------------------O
| < --servo arm
I hope my crude picture makes sense.

As far as they know, I already had it!

yea, I'm talking ccpm. So to save servos, you are going to go to a more complex and sloppier setup, not to mention a setup that will almost guarantee you will be nose heavy?

well i'm not sure what you say is right, a friend at the same club has the se we both have the same motors and same blades and mine can out climbs hes and it ant nose heavy at all,
and yes to save servos at a cost of £20 each that's £60 its worth it,
it ant complex at all!!! its a simple set up but its seems complex to people that don't use it

If its any consolation, my HDE SE has very little slop in. Most of the slop is a twisting slop, but thats because of the crappy bolts that go through the hub, main gear and shaft. You#ll get that with an CCPM machine.

you just have to replace the gears. My xl cde is nose heavy because of where the servos are placed. Plus, if you have the hs65 servos, you can replace the gears with the metal gears.
