After a week of building a few hours each night my new bird is ready for its maiden flight.

Nicely equipped with the following:

YS91SR + Hatori SB19
DS8717 Cyclic+Throttle
770 3D + 8900G
Multigov
Hyper-everything
Throttle jockey (not installed yet will tune motor first)
Canopuke canopy (I will attempt my own paint but this will do until then)

Wish me luck on the maiden I've gone over it head to skids and I think it's ready to go. My first 90-size and I'm pretty stoked.

(Mark I'll bring it Saturday for you to look over so I don't take any core samples on its first hop )

Excellent bro! I can't wait to get mine up soon! I like that Align regulator setup. I really like how it has the glow igniter on board, let us know how that works out.

If the wings are traveling faster than the fuselage, it's probably a helicopter

DEFILER,

Congrats on the new machine. You will love it for sure!

My Synergy is a dream. I love it so much so I just took her a bunch of "naked" pictures. Hahaha...

SAWEEEEET!!!!
Yea baby! A HyperReactive Synergy with all the BLING!!!!

That baby will tear through a gallon of nitro, your retirement IRA and your most treasured, longest lasting and most deeply nurtured relationship with blades of carbon fiber fury.

Now you just need two

How's Saturday AM sound?

Mark,
Did you say I need 2? You gotta be kidding me I can't even fathom building another one after my experience with this one....it's beautiful but damn what a time-suck.

(oh btw I still have to figure out a way to pound those damn e-clips into the pitch slider shaft-pin-lucifer thingies....any ideas other than the sledgehammer method? Any special tool I can use?

It'll be ready by Saturday either as a Synergy helicopter or a bag of Synergy parts

Wings19,
The Align regulator is great in my opinion, even though it's an Align product but I've been running it in my 600N for a while now and the version 2 is supposed to handle 6 amps. It's built real sturdy too and I'm spoiled by the onboard glow. Not sure how it will handle the 8717's but I don't fly hard except when flying into the earth. Crack flying is only on the bench when I pretend to know how to fly and stir the sticks like crazy

Regards,
Chris

(oh btw I still have to figure out a way to pound those damn e-clips into the pitch slider shaft-pin-lucifer thingies....any ideas other than the sledgehammer method? Any special tool I can use?
Yes there are a couple of good methods:

Method 1. Find a pair of small spring clip pliers that will fit into and spread the clips while you install them.

Method 2. Find a flat bladed screwdriver that you can wedge into the clip and spread it while you install it. Even if you have to modify one to do the task.

Method 3. Drill a small hole in a block of wood the size of the pin and place the clip over it while you drive the pin through it. You may have to clean up the slight bevel on the pin prior to attempting this.

Method 4. Find a piece of stainless tubing the same size as the pin. Install the clip onto the tubing then butt the tubing up against the pin and slide the clip from the tubing to the pin.

Method 5. Using a small machinist vice, clamp both pins anginst the ends of the pin. Slowly and carefully close the vice forcing the pins on the ends of the pin. Remove from vice and press the clips on the rest of the way. Again, you may have to clean up the slight bevel on the ends of the pins beofre using this method.

Good luck!

Good guess! Yes my new (to me) heli-hauler

Mark,
AHA! I will try at least 2 or 3 of those methods and see if it still flies Thanks!

I use a method similar to Mark's #5. I install a clip on one end of the pin (off of the machine). This is pretty easy to do, just hold the pin in place with some needle nose and tap it with a small hammer. Next, I install the pin into the part and then I use a channel-lock style set of pliers and adjust it to the proper width. I then use them like vice. The cool thing about the pliers is they will press on both sides of the clip without pushing on the pin due to the geometry of the teeth.

Let us know how it goes.

PS- I know my Porsches! I was looking at one for a heli hauler, but I couldn't find an 'S' with the PASM and my wife didn't the little hump on the passenger's side floor board.

Mine doesn't have PASM either but I don't really need it. Would have been nice but this was pre-owned and a great deal to boot. I'm enjoying it to say the least. (I'll be eyeing the GTS with 6spd manual in a few years though)

What hump? This one doesn't have it perhaps the active susp. equipped one does?

Good eye

OK the pin clips are finally in. She's ready to rock.

Thanks Mark and Ryan for the pointers. I used the channellock method to press them in although it mushroomed the tips of the pins a bit it will ensure the clips don't get flung...they're on for good
