I noticed when you clicked into idleup it was a bit abrubt, may want to up the normal mode T/curve, if its 100% in idle up maybe 85 - 90% in normal, I find it easier to just click into idleup and use the soft start.

I found anything below 85% T/curve does all kinds of wierd things, wobbles and tail pulses, specialy with the 10T pinion.

It doesent look half bad in that vid, considereing thats the maiden flight.

you are going to love your 600e. That is my favorite bird!

It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!

Spitfire1,
Yeah the headspeed was pretty low in normal.Went out today and got 3 flights in and turned it up,much better now .I have the 600XL motor in it now but just picked up a brand new 650L motor from a buddy.Everyone says its a really good upgrade from the 600XL so i'll find out tomorrow .With the 75A esc and 600XL motor I didn't have any problems doing 4pt tictocs so i'll get some videos tomorrow once the wife gets home .

chopper_crazy,
This baby does fly sweet,thats for sure .

Remember the 650 is lower KV than the 600XL, so it will require a different pinion and also you wont be able to use the Align 75 amp, or atleast you will be pushing it if you do.

Make sure you use the CC85 with the 650l, or make sure the esc is strapped on the side with plastic ties(not inside the heli), that way if it does go it will likely melt the ties and fall of, not causeing much damage.

Spitfire1,
I won't run the 650L with the 75A esc and I think I have a CC ICE 100 on its way if things work out.I'll run that with the 650L and maybe keep the 600XL and 75A esc for backup's .With the CC ICE 100 I can run 6 cells safe and its good for 8 cells if I ever go that way which im sure I will but not anytime soon.I'll show you tomorrow how good I can fly the setup the way it is now,wife is going to record for me

Blink 182,
Yeah everyone says the 600M is the best stock Align motor but I got a good deal on the 650L.I sold all my nitro stuff and a buddy had a brand new never opened 650L lying around.I traded him 4 OS.8 plugs and 3 gallons of fuel for it .That stuff was sitting around and seems the 650L runs cooler and makes a little more power over my 600XL.

I do have a question about my lipos.Im useing the 6 cell 30C 5000mAh flightmax batterys.I set my timer for 4:30,flew until the timer went off,hovered for 30 secs then landed.When I charged the packs I put 2511mAh back into it,is that good?

Going by the 80% discharge "rule" its good. You probably could get another minute of flight. Try increasing flight time by 30secs and check how much you're putting back in when charging.

On another note are you a member of the Whirlybirds?

Cool,just trying to take care of these things lol.I turned the timer up 30 secs earlier because I was told I can run 3600mAh out and still be pretty safe .

Yeah but I can't join this year .I have a 1 year 3 month old little one .Once he gets a little older so we can both go out,i'll be back up there ,with a nitro too haha.
