Last week we received our kit from Align and mounted it before the weekend so that we could test it
First impression is a very nice and stable helicopter which is very good for beginners.
Mounting the Kit:
Overall it is a very easy to build kit but I had encountered a couple of small problems during the build
1. After mounting the Tailcase it was completely turned to the right instead of straight to the heli, this happends a lot with the Align kits but this was just to much and needed to cut a pieze from the Tailboom to align well the piezes.
2. the Aluminium bearing blocks didnt align too well with all the holes and stripped one screw.
3. Ones mounted the servos you cannot reach the Screws anymore to setup the servos to 90, you need to do that outside on the table.Flight Report,
I mounted the Helicopter with everything Stock and Stock settings on the ESC.
Curves where in ILDE2 100 - 100 - 100 and Endpoints 100%
RPMS are about 3000 on the head with the Standard 13T Pinion which comes with the Kit.
Flies very stable at this setup and can do 3D quite well, but in my opinion its missing a lot of power to do real Manouvers, it even fels down in Tic Tocs.
The batteries used where Flightpower EVO25C 3S 2200Mah.
Gyro 750 in combo with DS520 Align Servo is a nice combination and didnt showed any problems so far, holds very well.
We only did 3 Flights but next weekend we will test more and come back with further details about getting the most of the Heli.
Would like to hear others opinions and setup changes.
