myaces,
The 2mm frames and cross bracing appear to make the heli a lot stronger. I can't move the head at all when grasping the head button and moving from side to side but I can feel and see movement when I do the same on my 600N.
What "cross bracing" do you refer too?

Currently, after building the 700N and comparing it to my 600N, I think the 600N with the Align upgrades has more cross bracing, but I'm hoping you prove me wrong!

Saturday morning I flew my helicopter in my pajamas
How it got in my pajamas I'll never know

Myaces,
Before you start wringing out this heli, I would suggest lowering the deceleration on the Spartan gyro. I've lowered both acceleration and deceleration on my 600N with insignificant performance differences. But I know the gears and torque rod are thanking me. These settings do not impact the piro rate, only start and stop softening.

Hey Sam, I've been running the Spartan at 70% but I have the tail piro speed really slowed down so I could have problems when I speed it up. What do you suggest as a setting?

For the braces, first you have the metal plates bridging the two frames halves, the frame stiffeners for the front and then the 2 mm frames. I bet the 2mm frames make the biggest difference in the stiffness.

I guess you are losing one brace as compared to the 600 because we only have two bearing blocks but the two of them on the 700 are pretty thick.

Well, gain is up to you to configure: you know best. But the acceleration and deceleration is configured exclusively via the Spartan configuration editor software with the USB cable. I can bring my laptop and cable with me this weekend to configure it.

I don't think you will have much issue with torque tube or tail gears on this machine...they are solid. I bannged the tail blades doing tic tocs really hard on the runway and I could have sworn I screwed something up but 4 gallons later and no issues. 8+ gallons through the 700 now and only thing I've done is rear bearing in my motor...gotta love it. Got the other dudes pissed at my field and now they can't wait till I actually make a mistake and crash since the heli does not want to break. Nice to be able to take the 90 home every weekend after a day of hard flying weekend after weekend. This is a great confidence builder and allows you to realize that it is simply your skill level and not the machine.

I got the cable in the mail the other day so it's not the gain that's at 70. I have the acceleration and deceleration settings set there to slow it down a bit.
