Think about using the Hyperion standard size coreless servos (DS20xSMD) simply because they are cost efficient and just as fast as the 1015's, well within .01 seconds. They spec at .11 and 111 ozin on 6 volts, not bad for a 48 dollar metal gear coreless servo. I have the 1015's on my gasser and they are top notch but major power hungry. On the gasser I run a 2s2p a123 pack and it does great because it's a 12 lbs heli. You would need a 10 amp BEC to run 1015s. I just put these Hyperions in my new e550 Raptor 3D machine and they are fast at 6 volts. I'm also running the DS20GMD on the tail (.05 at 6 volts!) with a Spartan since it was only 38 dollars and had more power than a 9254. Since I'm too cheap to spend 150 bux on a Futaba brushless servo I went the El-cheap-O route. If this one doesn't pan out then 150 dollar servo here I come. You can do a Spartan gyro and this same hyperion servo for under 240 bux and it definately beats the 401/9254 set-up.

Just trying to help a brother out. Use what you can and throw the rest out.

I don't have setup suggestions as I have an e620 in the box waiting to be built. You have many of the same questions as I do. This thread is helpful (one of many), thanks to all for their inputs!
As I mainly build and crash, I can suggest Heliproz.com. $419.99 for the e620 kit. I'm sure all the other websites you mentioned are good, but we need to save where we can. Good luck and have fun!

What's the difference between the PV0499 and stock hub?

The stock tail hub(PV0151) is made out of aluminum and uses 3x18.5mm. set screws to hold the hub on the output shaft and keeps the tail grips on the hub. The SUS tail hub(PV0449)is made out of stainless steel with an integrated threaded end to keep the grips on and uses standard set screws to set the(and makes it easy to check) tail hub assembly on the output shaft.

Thanks! At $5 and change at HeliProz, PV0499 sounds like a no brainer.

This Newbee needs help

I have decided to get in to the RC Heli hobby. After talking with a friend that is in the hobby, he recommended the TT Raptor E620, due to the enviroment we are in and the amount of winds we can get. Lets just say I wont be stateside for awhile and need an activity to consume my occassional downtime. After doing some reading on several forums this is what I have decided would be best and, I am hoping to tap into your alls wealth of knowledge on the topic.

Raptor E620 SE kit
Scorpion 4025-740
CC HV-85 ESC
CC 10a BEC
Futaba 401 Gyro w/ 9254 servo
Hyperion Atlas DS20-FMD servo x3
Futaba 7c 2.4 TX / RX

Still looking for some wooden blades at a decent price, as I anticpate a few crashes, reguardless of training on the real flight simulator. I hoping that this bird will last me as I progress in skill. Also looking for some batteries, looking at 2 5s lipos in series. Any recomendations would be appreciated. Also any spare parts I should order as it does take mail sometime to get here.THX
BTW if anyone can refer me to a site to order parts that would be great right now I am looking at Amainhobbies.com and ebay for items. Dont mind investing a little money but trying to keep it around 1k to start.

I would recommend the e550to start. You can upgrade it later if you want but keep the price LOW while you are learning. The stock motor and esc work extremely well and you can pick the whole kit up for a bit over 300 bux. You will run a 6s5000 lipo and get about 8 mins at 1800 rpm and 5.5 mins at 2100. Parts are cheap and the thing crashes great, ask me how I know. Other than the blades and boom everything else is the same size so there is really no reason to go to the more expensive route right now. The servos are great but I would stay away from the CC BEC and go with a cool flights UBEC. I just got my going with a Spartan gyro (used!) and running el cheap-o Mavrikk 550 blades (50 bux a pop!) for under $700 and it will do crazy 3D all day long....till it hits the ground that is!

Save the extra money for parts....you will prolly need them.

Tom

BTW you don't really want to spin wooden blades on a 10s helicopter just in case.

Litespeed600 has some good advice. The only thing I would differ(is that a word?)from is the BEC, I like the 5amp. Western Robotics.

You say you're new to Helis. Have you been on a Sim or tried to fly one?
Do you have the right tools to build one or know what tools you will need for the build, also what about a batt. charger and maybe a power supply?

Yes Im new to them. I have the great plane "Real Flight" simulator loging about an hour or so a day practicing. I have tools from my RC car days. But will have to have them shipped. Have some regular mechanic tools laying about here. I know I will need some specialty items. I have a friend here that has some experiece, and is guiding me through some of it. No batteries yet and no charger as I used the Nihm batts for my cars.

Sry bearnurse it wasnt my intention to hijack your thread. Just trying to get some insite as to which way I should go. Didnt think it would be a problem since the last post was like 3months ago. BTW how are you liking your E620?

Bearnurse,

I like to point out a very valid point from litespeed600:
- If money is a big concern, you'll be much better with a E-550.
{If you can't pay.. Dont play.. }

Number of questions had only one side of the coin.. So even if people shoot me down, I'll give my 12 cents worth...

- 600 mm blade or larger (620 SAB are perfect) call for 10S Lipo.

- 10S Lipo can be made with 2x5S in series and that is a sweet setup.
Above setup cost US$198.00 So it isn't anymore a major burden. Zippy Flightmax 5S 5A (5,000 mAH). 8 to 10 minutes fly times

- Advantages of having separate batteries for receiver, gyro, servos:
a) No electrical noise transmitted from motor / speed controller to the receiver
b) In case of a failure of the main power system, you still can try an auto to land your bird. (You are controlling everything still)
c) You can adjust anything on your heli with the main battery disconnected. eg: Pitch adjustment etc.. So here safety is drastically increased.

Yes I fly my E-620 that way

Happy flying
