I am considering the CHP DL frameset for my 700E, mostly for the half pound weight savings. I'm curious as to how sturdy they are. Also interested to see if anyone has had less than satisfactory experience with them. Do they flex more or less? Servos fit and work fine, etcetera? I'd more than likely be sticking with 690-713mm blades.

Thanks!

Terrabit,

We had Danny R's original 700G to E conversions. The frames are of schluter quality (excellent), they need a little sanding around the tabs. Stiffer than align, nice work on the bolts (nicer bolt heads). I wasn't aware his frames were lighter? Did you see his battery tray set up nicer than the stock align.

Terra,
I just weighed a stock frame still in the plastic wrap, 4.6oz. Wondering where the half pound weight savings is on these others?

Battery tray, servo linkages, receiver tray, etcetera.

You actually shave much more than 1/2 lb with this frame setup. My chp DL 700e weighs 9 lbs 5 oz ready to fly (no canopy but does have 3rd bearing block) with 12s 4000s. This yields 6 minutes of 3d @ 1900-1950 rpm. Take a look at some pics of this machine and you will get an idea of where the weight savings comes from

I did for the first time at the OHB. It destroyed the frame and made quick work of both the packs on the front. It crushed my futaba receiver, and my full size vbar. I was able to salvage the vbar. I got a new receiver, and am awaiting my crash replacement packs back from Thunder Power right now. here is a link to what my heli used to be:

^^^Mine is the one with the Logo canopy on it.

It was awesome, but after smashing up about $800 in 1 crash, I have moved on to an airframe that protects the components better.

It was a shame because this was the best flying heli I have owned to date.

Again be carefull, there is absolutely no protection for the packs in a crash on this heli.

I used savox servos all around, they fit perfectly with no problems. The wiring was easy to get clean, and componet placememnt was great. I mounted the esc up top in the back to keep it away from the packs in case of fire.

The quality of the frames is excelent. Everything fits great. A very small of sanding was required for me to get the anti-rotation bracket to fit in the slots.
