Just bought a used one. Put the CGY750 in it. Got to fly it this weekend, will take a little getting use to it. I'm a Fury Extreme convert but this heli seems to have much more potential. Very happy with it so far.

The brown truck showed up tonight with my new toy,

It looks like I did get most of the revised parts included at a quick glance.The only parts I see at the moment that are questionable are the start shaft and the silver clutch bell.

I thought all new kits came with the updated start shaft with the 2 grub screws and an orange clutch bell?

I have a Funtech pipe,I am pretty happy with that combo...for now.

I am well into the build and it's alot of fun and easy.There are a few things that could be a little easier,The linkage rods and ball links are a pain and the fuel tank install and grommet is a pain.

Some helpful tips I learned on RR were heating the rod ends with a lighter and lightly start the ball links into the rod...worked great!
The other tip was when installing the tank into the frame,apply D&L hand cleaner on the tank to help it slip into place...worked great!

I had excessive flashing in the fuel grommet hole,almost looks like the factory uses a hot tool of some kind to put the hole in the tank,the hole is sized nice,but there was no way the grommet was going in without the dremel.

I also need to tweek my ball link sizing tool to loosen the links up,they are very tight.

Also check the TT shaft ends,the new style is through bolted,the set screws on the older ones were prone to failure if backed out,(unless you JB weld the ends in)

First Flights on Velocity 90

Put the first flights on my Outrage Velocity 90 yesterday. Using a Spektrum AR7200BX as the flybarless controller. The only thing I went back and changed was to reverse the direction of the skid legs to make it more stable on the landing gear.

Loved it! It seems completely vibration free, locked in and looks great too. I use the first couple of flights to check for anything backing out or having accelerated or unusual wear. Today, I'll go out and throw it around and see how it does.

So far, I'm quite happy with the kit. The only things that gave me trouble were the extremely tight ball links; subsequently sized with the Botosizer (Matt Botos' sizing tool), and the brittle quality of the front radio tray; we'll see how that holds up. Other than that, the quality appears to be first class - in particular the finish machining on the metal parts is high quality and looks fantastic.

I am really disappointed with this kit,so much that I have lost interest.

It does not have a locked in feel at all,probably vibrations from somewhere.I bought it in December 2011 and all electronics are new.

I am really loving my Logo's,maybe when I get tired of charging packs and not working on anything I will attempt the Velocity again.Until then... It will collect dust!

The vibration may come from the head - there are two grub screws that drive into the spindle - one from each side of the head. Remove them and throw them away.

I bet this cures your vibration. My Velocity is glass smooth; Hirobo machines had a similar issue with the same fix. This allows the spindle to self center assuming you have a nice set of main blades.

My 90 is also super smooth. I will note however the tail took some time to assemble right. If you tighten the 4 screws holding the tail case on unevenly or tighten them down in an order that causes the case to slightly tweak you will get a vibration because the slider on the tail output shaft rubs.

To check if this is the issue its quite simple. Remove all the links from the tail so there is no tention caused by the servo or the ball links (just pop the links off the balls). Next slide the tail slider in and out, if it rubs in any way remove and reattach the tail case to the end of the boom. If it still rubs, check your alignment of the tail slider to the control arm. If everything isn't perfect it will cause the slider to drag which will induce a wag / vibration because the gyro can never really compensate correctly.

You may also want to try a different brand tail blade. I have heard of a few people having bad luck with certain blade brands. I personally fly Mavrikk but I know of others who fly different brand tail blades that work perfectly also.

tail blade switch is a must do.
as far as the assembly goes the 3x6 screws that the pivot works from, run a 3x25 with a nylon lock nut. tail movement will be spot on

DONT TRASH WHAT THE OTHER GUY IS FLYING OR FLYING WITH. AT LEAST HE IS FLYING!!!

Thankyou for the suggestions,What affect do the grub screws on the spindle have?
That is about the only thing I have not checked.
