I find the pack/packs are very easy to change. My packs are 10s stick packs and 5s bricks that I made into a stick configuration by heat shrinking them on to a G-10 plate. This lets me slide the pack in from the rear so there is no need to remove the canopy. This feature alone (almost) make the cost of the frame set worth it. I did not use the plastic rails that came with the frame set. I have velcro on the bottom plate and use only two straps in the center area of the frame. Very quick and easy.
I would have done the same if I hadnt been using the packs for other stuff.

Nice idea with the G10 and the lipos. Where did you get the G10? I done a search and can't find any suppliers, could use carbon but pricey.

Also I have now fitted Fusuno V2 canopy and the 700 canopy mounts were too short so I have changed them for QuickUK trex N600. I also changed the longer plastic mounts Chris supplied for use by the elevator servo and they pull the canopy in tighter around the servo, sleaker look.

Only thing I would worry too much about is that in your first option the pushrod get's pulled down too far so it might jump off (since its not built for changes in that direction.

I would need a pushrod on there, and try servo full throw to see how it looks to make an exact judgement.

Then of course some geometry issues occur, but if that have any affect in flight or not I cant say, probably not.

Yep, I was just trying a push rod on the first and it don't work. I was too concerned about getting the servo in rather than thinking about the rod. How does this look with a magic push rod from MS paint?

I think the mods are cool but the stock (Heli-Chris) setup with the plastic radio tray works great. Less things to make from scratch when you need parts.

Thats why I wanted to use the 600 carbon boom mount then its just two holes to attach. Here it is with linkage attached. How's it look now?

IMHO I don't think the geometery is very good. Better to use a boom mount. I bought a Quick UK boom mount kit (sold for the 600) for mine but ended up using the stock location.

After I posted I see that was a real poor picture taken at a dodgy angle. How does that pic (above) look now? better geometry? If you guys still think it sucks then I will put this one to bed.

Not as bad but I would still use a boom mount. To me, the sevro mount has that "tacked on" look. Like it was not intended to be there. Just my highly opinionated 2 cents

These rods are longer than stock and are included in the frame set.

BTW, we will be stocking these frame sets and should have them available in approx 3 weeks. Pricing has not been set yet but they will be available for pre-order next week. More details to follow.

Any one have problems with the control shaft? After assembling mine with the arms & spacers I have 2 - 3 mm play

I checked chris's manual and the Align manual and I'm sure I'm not missing anything. You do get a few thin shims in the Align kit but not for 2 - 3 mm

I had to use two brass spacers/shims on each end, just inside the screw to make it a snug fit.

Found those included in the original T700 kit (same thing on my nitro)

I'll have to go have another look in my original 700 box but I don't remember seeing them, nor is it mentioned in the manual, good old Align.

I see looking at close up pics of yours and Dannys build you have both used servo grommets. I did not think these were needed on electrics as vibrations are near non-existent?

Nope, I was also stumped when I built my T700N, but found those washer and it made perfect.

I always use rubber grommets, granted its not needed for electric per see, but in a crash they will at least take some G force out of the crash which else with crack the servo or frame.
