I hade both version the first versoion was flawed more than this one. I had 2 bad ones, One never worked the other one broke from gettting some fuel on it. The new version are better. had no problems with them but i'm keeping under the canopy. So they don't get a chance on getting fuel on them. Keep them dry you will be ok.

Just a note: My switch is on the right side of the heli where I can see the battery LEDs. It does get fuel on it from 3D moves. I never had an issue with it. I do wipe it off at the end of the day. I used velcro to fasten the switch and can pull the switch off and use wrap it in a terry cloth towel to absorb the oils. No problems though.

the only problem so far is if your running 8v system with fast servos, it can over load the regulator and kick out in flight, from what I have heard.

I have two in my 700's with many flights and no problems. Have you heard of any problems with fast servos at 7.4 volts? I use the regulator with the 7.4 volt pack and it works fine.

I got this info directly from a JR 7100R RX manual.

“Our staff has been recording in-flight data to determine typical current consumption of aircraft in flight. The following graph illustrates a T-REX Nitro 600 during aggressive 3D flight.”

Helicopter -T-REX 600N
Servos - 3-JR8717’s, 1-8900G (rudder), 1-8317 (throttle)
Batteries - 1- 2100mAh 2-cell 7.4-volt Lipo
Engine - YS50
Flight envelope - Aggressive 3D
Average current - 1.15 amps
Peak current - 3.33 amps

Milliamps used per 8 minute flight- 173mAh

Quote and information taken directly word for word from the JR AR7100R manual.

"Agressive 3D" is a relative term. At only 173 mah over 8 min I am thinking this to be more like mild 3D at best with 8717's. On a 700 I would expect these values to be quite a bit higher as well.

I would tend to agree with that statement, I use BLS 451's on my 700, and flying around, doing loops and flips only, will use almost 200mAh for a 7-8min flight. I think thats an understatement on their part.

JR was probably using a very skilled pilot who had excellent pitch management.

I would tend to think JR knows the definition of "aggressive".

there is two in front of the red and green ones that both have to be lit to mean the glow plug is hot. they come on for 10 sec. and then go out when working properly
after you push the button

When you put it on did you put the black hooked end wire to the bottom of the engine case? I usually take one of the back plate bolts out and put it on and tighten. Also when you push the ignition button are you getting both lights. There will be a green and a amber. If you only have the green then it means either you are not plugged up correctly or the plug is bad. I will bet it is how you have it grounded. It must be grounded to the motor.

Fly it like you stole it!
