I couldn't hold...!

I was waiting almost a year for the new electrics to come, and I gave great time to Synergy and X50e, when out of nowhere, this E8 came into sight.

Sunday saw it on a magazine page, Monday night I hit the button. Now its sitting on the bench waiting for maiden, when weather permits. I had great fun building it and I was amazed, by how easy it came. Quality is excellent too.

I ll fly it initially on 8s until my 10s packs arrive.

I would be glad to help you, in case you need help

If you don't feel like flying, then don't

10S? I spoke to the guys here at Horizon and they recommended 12S. In fact, other than the battery capacity, I can use the same setup I am using on my 700s

Please tell me more about the build and quality of the machine

Jr recommends 8s to 12s. Of course if you already have gear from a 700 then rven better. I used to fly a converted Raptor and all my gear (motor-esc) was towards an 8s - 10s setup.

Quality is by far the best I ve seen, on helis I ve built (Mostly Align). If you see the thickness of the manual you ll get it.

Every built step is a bag on its own, so no worries of loosing or confusing things.

Jr takes you by hand and make you look like a pro when it comes to building helis.

What setup are you planning ?

If you don't feel like flying, then don't

Well I was thinking of using a KDE700XF-495 motor. I have been liking the CGY750 so probably go with that setup. ICE 120 Speed Controller. BLS 255 HV Servos

That what I was thinking of going with

Look at others posts, that fly 12sm to see what motors they use. I guess you are fine though

Did the maiden today. Couldn't be better

I looked and that motor is too large BUT KDE to the rescue. There are coming out with a KDE600XF-530, that would fit and be a perfect motor.

I downloaded the assembly manual and it looks like it will go together as well as my old Vibe 50 did. Come on KDE don't keep us waiting

Consider the align 700mx 510kv, I have this on 12s 65c tp with vbar gov and fusionhawk esc, motor makes good power and after hard 3d flight comes down lukewarm, I was planning to do a rewind on this motor but its good as is for this machine

Common sense may not be common after all
