Vibe
Just Built my Vibe, except for the G7000t + 8700g that's coming from Cyber heli, the question is this, there does not seem enough room for the tail control push rod to move past the canopy mount, i've only just eyed it up mind, has anyone built one and found your tight for space
Also the two mounting trays.....not enough space there for me either, what with the GV1 and amp. to worry about

Yes, I will post tonight pics, I could fit My amp for 7000t Unless I push it over the collective, Alir servos, not much, but pushes on the can a little. You might want to get a TJP and mount behind the Throttle servo other than that no othere issue.

What can mounts are you using on the back?

Below Average,

I found that my tail pushrod ran very close to one of the canopy supports. They aren't actually used for mounting the canopy so I removed mine on the pushrod side and replaced it with a bolt. I guess it depends on what servo arm length you are running in how close it gets to the canopy support.

I'm running the 7000T with a 1900mah battery and the PCM10 receiver up front and whilst it is all a tight fit it can be persuaded to fit. If I was to run a governor as well I would have to find somewhere else to mount that...

Cheers

Mark

You can see some pictures in my gallery.

This build includes a GV1 + 611 so it's busy.

I've actually put the 611 gyro upside down, underneath the top bed.

The only reason Curtis used the standoffs was to keep the canopy from hitting the maingear in 3D flight. I actually asked him about that a couple of days ago, and that was what he told me. He actually said he wasn't sure JR was going to put that in the kit. But indeed they did. So don't be supprised if the canopy does hit the main gear if you don't use it. I understand what you guys are saying. I was just telling you what purpose it serves.Build it, fly it, crash it. Repeat as often as needed.

I've completed the build and also upload all photos, showing the entire step-by-step build. Nothing extraordinary but if it can help ...

I also want to thanks Mark C. for his help in answering a couple of questions.

I added washers to shim the bellcrank. This is the only thing I could come up with to keep the pushrod from hiting the main gear or the canopy post. When using the 601 or 611 gyro you need to consider the correct length servo arm to give you 115% throw on the amp. I will make a solid shim that is a little nicer looking later.

115 in the gyro box, so when you turn on your 611, hit the back button once and you'll be at the 100A/100B screen, then just adjust each so its 115/115. Most people just say to have it over 100, some say ideally to get it between 110-120 with 120 being ideal.Team JR

I spoke to Curtis a little more about this on the production kits. He told me that the location they (JR) chose to put that standoff was not where he wanted it. He said the original sample frames had two holes that were left over from the Ergor/Vigor frames, and that is where he would locate the standoffs for the canopy. The new frames do not have the holes, and JR decided to use the rear hole in the lower bearing block for the applecation. But as you guys have discovered there is an issue with clearance for the tail pushrod. He is going to make his own holes for this applecation, and when I find out where I will pass that along to you guys. He said in the mean time, just remove them if you have to. Just thought I would pass that little tidbit along.Build it, fly it, crash it. Repeat as often as needed.
