hmm, the only thing i don't understand is teh battery mounting. I see that you take the entire battery/cf plate and slide it onto posts that align it similar to a picture frame or wall clock, but what keeps them engaged and not sliding back out?

I gotta be wrong, but it doesn't appear to have any radial bearings in the main grips, only a thrust bearing.

The plate is secured via screws. Because there is a keyhole in the plate the screws only need to be loosened, not removed entirely, to slide the plate out and over the screw head.

It looks like they are using the high quality MP Jett connectors from the ESC to the battery. I like that.

I don't know about that battery mounting method. Seems like it could pretty easily slide backwards.

What is the black box labeled "BEC"? Is this a part included in the kit? If so, who makes it?

It is new and different in many ways.

These are the new Anti-Spark connections from Jeti, I am going to use this for my batt/esc connections but I do not "suggest them" because that will probably get me pinked

@ Justin Stuart,

You comment. "Seems like it could pretty easily slide backwards."

With all four screws at each corner even slightly tightened, the plate is "pinched" in there really well. We've never had a plate move on us in all the flights Kyle's logged, even when a distraction during battery installation allowed the model to be flown with only two of the four bolts tight (but all four were still captured by the keyholes).

And since the batteries are out in front of the CG, the plate is always being thrown forward during piros, so its ability to slide to the rear in flight is practically impossible.

The design is solid (-:

It looks like a nice heli to build with room to put big hands.

They'll (main radial bearings) have to be 12x?x? since the spindle is 12mm.

The tail radials on the other hand are 5x10x4

looks like a lot of the xtreme is pre-built - looks like a great model and interested to hear the feedback when the first ones get up and flying.

In the manual it says everything that was pre built needs to have all the screws, etc. removed and apply loctite.

Looks like what a well engineered heli should look like. Not a big fan of Scorpion motors though. I will be looking to trade mine out (sell outright) for an Xera.

One big question though, why would the best (or at least one of the best) heli available show Savox servos in the manual. Seems like a mismatch/inconsistency to me. However, that special edition YGE ESC looks killer! Does anyone know if the V-Bar is functionally any different from the standard full size blueline unit?

Function, No, firmware yes, i.e. special firmware for the different mass of the heli.

MrMel's comment: "Function, No, firmware yes, i.e. special firmware for the different mass of the heli."

Now don't everyone get your panties in a bunch, and think the XXtreme won't fly on a standard V-Bar. The "tweaking" Mikado did for the XXtreme's V-Bar is some pretty smooth icing on the cake. Nice they made the effort to perfect even more the system of such a unique heli.

But note that Kyle flew his three XXtremes at all the competitions and events he attended in 2011 using standard 5.2 PRO version V-Bars.

Easiest way to put it, this firmware is optimized for this size of heli so you have the options to divert from optimal.
Easier to tweak, not critical to get the best super-servos etc.
