Hi,

I am thinking of buying an Align 600E and putting it into a Funkey 500D or Funkey Bell 222.

Is all that extra weight going to be a problem?
Are run times going to be very low?
Will I need a bigger motor?

Thanks,

Rob.

It'll do great in a scale fuselage. Go with the 500D or E model for a much easier install, the 222 is a tight fit and fairly aggravating for a first scale project.

Here's my 500E with 600E mechanics.

This is not my first scale, and it would be my 3rd Bell 222, but never electric. The biggest 'E' I've had so far is 4 450's but always P&B.

Do you know what run times you can get from a scale 600E?

I like the Align Cobra 500 !

In my 500E with a Nue 1907/1Y/H and just under 1500 HS, 10 minites was easy on a 6S 4900 battery.

That's very good
About the same as a 50 glow scale

Looking good.

Thanks.

The 600E is a great mechanics set for scale applications. I have had mine in a Funkey Jet Ranger, AS350, and I'm working on putting it in a Vario UH1D.

One caution - on the original 600E the elevator servo position can be a PITA. I tends to get in the way without any alternate options. The 600ESP can be modified to put that servo between the frames, but not the 600E. On my Jet Ranger I solved the problem by converting the elevator servo to a closely matched low profile version. My guess is that elevator servo clearance area would not be an issue with a Hughes 500 fuselage. Running an unmatched servo on the swash is less of an issue in scale flying than it would be in a 3D application, and is even less of an issue if using electronic FBL such as the Vbar where multi-position swash leveling is part of setup.

Run Times

Another vote for the 500E..
If the run time is not long enough for you on the single battery, you can always run 2packs in parrallel to easily double you flight. The added weight will not bother the flying.
Good Luck, Stan

The trick for the bad elev servo location is to run the 600N frame set (wider) with electric motor, or use the Chaos kit which uses the wider nitro style frame spacing. Then you can put the elev servo between the frames.
