Hi all,

I have a couple of build questions for my 600 se with the new carbon frames.

1. The aileron and collective servos ( Spectrum 6040's ) are so tight in the servo slot that the wire barly makes it in and is bent over. I tried to fit a Futaba and JR but have the same results. Is this normal or are any of you modifying the metal servo slot.

2. This frame is obviously a little wider, what if anything are you guys doing with the canopy mounts to make it fit well?

3. I have Edge 690's . I have tried all of the spacers that came with the kit and the blades. If I use the thinest ones I can only get one in but its got alot of play in the grip. If I use one of the 2mm spacers that came with the blades it will work but it was very tight going in. What did some of you guys do?

Any help with these or any other tips would be greatly appreciated.

Hi John,

Not sure about the Spektrum servos but with JR 8717s I found that getting the servo to go straight in would put more strain on the wire than I cared for. A trick that worked well for me was to actually remove the top bearing block and inserting the cyclic servos with the bottom screws. Then remount the bearing block and install the remaing screws.

As far as the canopy goes I found mine fit quite well with no modification at all. Even though the frame itself is a little wider the servos are not protruding out any further than the plastic frames and the canopy mounts appear to be positioned the same. This was apparent when the back of my canopy joined up exactly as it had on my plastic frame.

The clear plastic shims that came in the kit will work. It takes a little bit of technique to get them in, but once you figure it out it's pretty easy to repeat. I pinch the root of the blade with a shim on either side then come at an angle from the bottom. Once i have them in I use a 1.5mm driver to align the spacers through the bolt hole. I've also seen others CA the shims right to the blades.
